    And for my first post...

    Selecting a QB in the first round is not a wise choice, IMO. History shows that there is no way to acurately measure a QB's future success. I believe the best way to build for the present and future is to get a proven QB from FA and use the draft to surround him with talent.

    If I were Bud, I would trade our #1 to the Falcons for Matt Schaub and a 3rd round pick. This would address our immediate need for a quality QB and give us one more first day pick to use on OL, MLB, RB.

    You know what you're getting with Schaub. With Leinert, Young, Cutler...well no one knows. Could be great, could be disasterous.

    Allright, I'll admit, I don't know a whole lot about Schaub. I took a quick look at his stats on espn though, and I'd like more explanation. How do you know what you're getting? In 2 years, he's averaged less that a 50% completion percentage. He had a few good showings in 2005, but does that give him that much separation from the "unknown" QBs?

    I don't really doubt him that much, just looking for evidence.

    That would be the worst move that this franchise could possibly make.

    A little support for my doubt... during his "good showings", he wasn't that impressive. He threw 9/13 with a TD in the end of a game against the Panthers where they were already down by over 40 points. If that's not a pointless game, I don't know what is. True, he threw 3 TDs in one game, a loss to NE. He didn't win the game. We've seen great things from volek where he's thrown for tons of yards and points, but not won us the game. Why is Schaub any better?

    For one, his career completion % is TERRIBLE. Its worse than Michael Vicks. He may "look" successful but as the Giants found out when you need the completions - he won't do the job (Eli). Matt Schaub is good but I don't think he's worth any more than where the Falcons drafted him (3rd round). Hell the Raiders have Andrew Walter who was the #1/#2 QB prospect before the season began who they drafted in the 3rd round. Should we trade our #3 for him too?

    That's what I thought a couple of months ago, when this topic first came up. I like Schaub, but I really think it's not that much riskier to take Young over Schaub:winker:

    With all due respect, this would be one of the worst trades in NFL history.

    Shaub is a completely unproven backup QB.

    I'd rather take my chances with Volek. I think he and Shaub are on about the same level......We stink anyway, why not take a chance on what could be a superstar QB in a few years...rather than take a non-proven back up that is not more than average....
