Benkert shows FAR MORE than Schaub

252 posts in this topic

I'll go back and start at page one, to basically try and figure out if any solid Intel on why Schaub is even a Falcon both again, and still.  Haven't logged into this board for a long time.  Pls point me to the "God bless Kurt Benkert's toe" threads.

ok

dude, just go with it.

 

Your post count tells us you haven't been around very long, no idea if you lurked in the background for a while, but obviously even if you did, not long enough to know some of the long standing jokes on the board. Yes, in times past, there were actually people who made SERIOUS posts along the lines of 'they're burying ________________ at the bottom of the depth chart to protect the career of ______________ "   

 

and yes, one poster here even said we needed to get rid of Ryan and trade for (or maybe it was draft) Jake Locker......just go with the flow, those posters are long gone, but us long timers get the joke and still get a laugh out of them

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

I don’t think I can ever remembering a veteran QB managing the game so horribly.

Shaub throws plenty of touchdowns.

To the defense.

Ok, TBF he did NOT. Throw a TD to the other team. 

He set them up for one but he did not Actually throw it! :lol:

He may not make waivers if we try to stash him on p.s. This year. However if the defense is good this season we need a game manager more than we need a gunslinger at #2. Benkert is a classic gunslinger. Yes always going to be a streaky player

It was trade for Locker after he had a big game RUSHING. Just a Vick can that couldn't move on. Was that one of.swifts accounts that said that?

If I'm Arthur Blank

I DONT LET MATT SCHAUB BACK IN ATLANTA AFTER THIS CLOWN SHOW! 

Have never ever understood why AB/Team even revisited the experience. "Big Bad Schaub....."   Whatevs.  TX is a far better state to dry up and blow away, than GA.  .

Not only can Schaub NOT play anymore, but just being in the game is a detriment to the offense.  As soon as he came in, the defense no longer had to respect the pass at all.  They keyed in on the run game and just straight made off.  Schaub lost this game for us, against 4th stringers...what's gonna f'ing happen if he EVER sees the field in a regular season game?

 

I understand keeping him until Benkert's toe is looked at, but there's NO WAY that guy should have a roster spot and a 3.5Million cap hit on our team this year, or any other...

 

This has to be painfully obvious to everyone...

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

That's because he's not even winning over his own team mates.   Mostly same guys on field, didn't see it happen w/Kurt.  Just sayin'... time to go, is time to go.   Btw, "Hi" Jesus.  Been a long time!  :)

Eye test says, Schaub is money best spent elsewhere.

Schaub earns his money because he knows the offense incredibly well.  His value is more coach than player at this point

But during film review and in Ryan’s ear on Sunday, he is valuable

It's called loyalty to the veterans and the guys that have paid their dues. It's just how it is sometimes.

Ryan has 3 former head coaches working with him, think they can afford to let Schaub go.

Come on, man...Schaub has NEVER played for Koetter...how in the heck is he valuable at this point?  He can't possibly know anything about this offense that Matt, who has actually played under Cutty for quite some time, doesn't... If he's a coach, cut him and hire him as a coach.  Still frees up a roster space and cap money...having him as a player is a detriment to the team...

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

One seemed sturdier, than the other, though.  Won't be the first to say this, but am comfortable w/the QB lineup being Ryan/Sanu/Benkert with toe turf and a broken femur/Schaub.  

Denver shd not be disappointed w/their prospect.

Matt Bryant did more for this team, was on the team longer; (and that's counting BOTH Schaub stints with the team), and is older than Schaub...and they let him go...so this response is patently false...

Nothing that says Schaub makes the 53 man roster this year, He's an easy cut with only 750K of dead money.

If he looks like he did tonight through the rest of the preseason, be really surprised if he makes the cut.

Ryan's an 11 yr vet, multi pro bowler, former league MVP, fringe Hall of famer. What more can he possibly learn from Matt Schaub?

I guarantee he has taught Koetter much of the offense and terminology

you dont believe that and you arent that stupid. We should develop benkert but he is still making stupid decisions with the ball and gambles too much.

Than cut him and free up his cap and roster spot and hire him as coach.  He CAN NOT play; no, I take that back...he's WORSE than just can not play, he's a detriment to the team as a player...he garners zero respect from the defense; he's a walking 3-out at best, a guaranteed turnover at worst

So far, all the defenses for Schaub are abut what he contributes off the field. It may be he just had a bad night and he'll look good next week. He looked pretty good last year in the KC game. May also be his body just can't handle playing football  any more.

Now, if he DID get cut this year, that's an extra 2.375 mil on the 2020 books.
