Texans QB Coach: Matt Schaub is On the “Cusp” of being Elite

Matt Schaub

I guess it kind of depends on your perspective, honestly.

Franchise quarterbacks don’t grow on trees. So when you can get an above average quarterback who can throw 22 touchdowns to only 12 interceptions with a 90.5 rating, most teams would take it. The Houston Texans seem to be more than pleased with Matt Schaub’s production, despite his postseason shortcomings.

At 32, Schaub probably is what he is. A pretty good quarterback but doesn’t deserve to be mentioned among the game’s greats right now. But if you talk to his quarterback coach Karl Dorrell, Schaub is near the top at his position. In other words, almost elite. He did note that Schaub has to become a better “crunch time” player to really take that next step.

“I know Matt’s really right there; he’s on the cusp of being one of those players,” Dorrell said.

If Dorrell’s words hold any truth, playoff success is what will take Schaub to the next level. Just ask Joe Flacco.
