Default HC Dennis Allen says Schaub is on par with Philip Rivers.......and Peyton Manning








On Monday's edition of the "Around The League Podcast," Dan Hanzus unfurled a bizarre theory that the Oakland Raiders remain convinced the 2013 NFL season never happened.

Free-Agent Tracker

How else to explain the firm belief of the Raiders' braintrust that a quarterback outplayed by Case Keenum and Terrelle Pryor last season is the new face of the franchise?

Coach Dennis Allen has now doubled down in his glowing assessment of Matt Schaub's standing among NFL quarterbacks.

"We have a quarterback now that's on par with the quarterbacks in this division," Allen said Tuesday at the NFL Annual Meeting, per Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News.

You want to rainbow curve that one by us again, coach?

AFC West stars Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers placed Nos. 1 and 2 in Gregg Rosenthal's 2013 Quarterback Index. Schaub was 31st, behind the likes of former backup Keenum and current backup Matt McGloin.

More troubling is the lack of confidence Schaub has shown in his arm since Thanksgiving of 2012. In Gary Kubiak's scheme that relies heavily on roll-outs, Schaub brought up the rear in Pro Football Focus' play-action metrics -- managing 4.0 yards fewer per attempt than Keenum on such passes.

Absurd comparisons notwithstanding, the Raiders have another quarterback reclamation project on their hands.

I'd love to hear the audio of that press conference. I wonder if anyone in the room started laughing.

Funny thing is that they still upgraded at QB. He can win 5 games and have the most wins for the Raiders in the last decade. He will be a hero in Oakland.

He is on par with Alex Smith and Chase Daniel, so his statement is technically correct.

It's amazing in a league with a salary cap and a non-lottery pick draft that the raiders have been so bad for such a long time. Never change raiders, never change.

He made a general statement that he could never truly believe if he is coming him to Manning and Rivers.
If he was serious then he is on ****ing crack.

Matt Schaub's own mother would laugh at the thought ...

If I were Schaub, I'd be embarrassed.

The AFC West division or the AFC Conference? Meh doesn't matter say it often enough the media will espouse it and the public will buy it.

me neither, laddie, me neither. either i missed where he mentioned Rivers/Manning. Or missed where he said starting QBs. Or assumed Schaub's closer to the backups and Alex Smith in terms of talent. Or I'm giving a half effort in trolling what could possibly be a troll thread.

PS, I'm just messing around w/ you...

From a physical tools perspective.. And for a few seasons of production, perhaps.... But overall, he's not on the Manning level of consistency or production over his career by a long shot.
