Matt Schaub – remember him? – is now the backup QB in Baltimore. Just three seasons ago he was guiding the Houston Texans to the playoffs, but then he became unhinged in the pocket in 2013, couldn’t stop throwing pick-sixes, and at 34-years old, he’s close to being out of the league.
If Baltimore is indeed his last stop, Ravens pass-rusher Terrell Suggs isn’t making life easy on Schaub. From the Baltimore Sun:
After Schaub threw a downfield pass out of bounds, Suggs began hurling shots Schaub’s way.
“Everything up until the throw looked really good,” he yelled at Schaub, who looked away and didn’t respond.
Then, later in practice, Schaub completed a touchdown pass to undrafted rookie DeAndre Carter, with safety Will Hill in coverage. Suggs did his best to comfort Hill.
“It’s OK, Will,” Suggs called out. “A broken clock is right twice a day.”
Yikes. At this rate, Bryn Renner from North Carolina could end up being Joe Flacco’s backup. As harsh as Suggs has been on Schaub, imagine a scenario where Flacco went down and Schaub actually had to play.
Possibly irrelevant note: At +2300, I believe there’s great value in the Ravens as a Super Bowl winner. Said as much on the radio show this weekend.
