Matt Schaub Top 3 Passing Seasons in NFL
Often forgotten, yet highly underrated is the perfect way to describe Matt Schaub. It really does not seem like Schaub has been in the NFL for nearly seven seasons, but that is largely because he spent the initial part of his career under the radar backing up Michael Vick for the Atlanta Falcons.
The second part of his career for the Houston Texans has seen him come into his own, but it still seems like the time is coming where he will take his game to another level. Here is a list of his top 3 passing seasons in the NFL.
2008- 3,043 Passing Yards
It was his second year on the Houston Texans and he was starting to feel much more secure with the way Gary Kubiak wanted him to run the offense. Although, he did not get the team to the playoffs, his passing numbers for the regular season were quite impressive as he completed 251 passes out of 380 attempts, had a 66.1 pass percentage completion, 3,043 passing yards, 15 touchdowns, and had a 92.7 passer rating.
2009-4,770 Passing Yards- NFL Passing Yards Champion
When healthy, Schaub has shown the the ability to be brilliant as last season he led the NFL in passing yards. Although, the team came up short and did not reach the playoffs, it was a year of personal success that led the quarterback to reaching his 1st Pro Bowl.
His passing numbers for the regular season were outstanding as he completed 396 passes out of 583 attempts, had a 67.9 pass completion percentage, 4,770 passing yards, 29 touchdowns, and had a 98.6 passer rating.
2010-4,370 Passing Yards
This season started off so promising and it was going to allow the superstar quarterback to set career personal highs in most passing categories, but unfortunately he suffered a season ending foot injury. Now he will simply mentor Matt Leinart for the rest of the season. His passing numbers for the regular season were great as he completed 365 passes out of 574 attempts, had a 63.6 pass completion percentage, 4,370 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, and had a 92.0 passer rating.
Matt Schaub Looking Forward
Hopefully, Matt Schaub will be able to recover from his untimely injury for next season and if he can stay healthy it appears he may ready to take the next step and throw for 5,000 passing yards during a regular season.
