Benkert shows FAR MORE than Schaub

Does Schaub have anything to play for in this game?  Benkert is playing for his career, Schaub's career is essentially over.  Benkert is willing to take risks, including possibly getting hurt, to prove his value, but Schaub has no reason to risk a personal injury.  Schaub will get paid this year even if the Falcons did cut him, but Benkert will barely get paid anything and be looking for a job.

We will see as we are getting the ball back.

Schaub just sucks!  You can spin anyway you want but the guy stinks!

Again just no killer instinct by defense to FINISH!

LACK OF EXECUTION,  LACK OF FOCUS 

How the **** do you allow a 3rd string QB to complete on 4th and 13th????

By having 4th and 5th stringers on the field.

Well, that was a fluky type play. 

Also, this is preseason so it’s not like your best are out there. TBH, your D played well enough, this preseason loss is due more to your QB getting hurt than anything else.

Because we played 4th stringers/PS candidates and the better of the backup QB's was hurt.

Also it's not about actually winning in the preseason. It's about evaluation.

Exactly. 

I thought we played well and better than in previous seasons. 

We seem to have a deeper talent roster this year.

Our back ups never beat other opponents backups ...that's a fact.

Benkert was a better QB than Drew Lock tonight...

He was the best QB to play all night and that’s with several drops involved.

So backups are useless ?

Why do we have preseason games? Just make it like college football....

how would Ryan's job not be safe if he were the backup.  There is no universe where Benkert would replace Ryan as the starting qb for the Atlanta Falcons

Not true. If the infinite-dimension theory is correct, there are, in fact, an infinite number of dimensions where Benkert replaces Ryan.

But "infinity" isn't enough universes to allow for Schaub playing competent NFL ball ever again.

You said that, not me!

 

And as far as why do we have preseason, you will have to ask the owners wallets about that.

Schaub gets his first big pass, then back to back false starts by rookies kills his momentum.

Those false starts probably prevented another pick-6 by Schaub. Even if they were runs.
