Matt Schaub is going to be a difference maker

I felt all offseason that our entire year would depend on whether or not we were able to acquire Matt Schaub. Of all the QB's available, I felt he was the best option, and to say the least I'm exited at what he brings to this football team. He's not a QB that can win football games for you all by himself like the top QB's in the league, but he's a good game manager who can make all the throws, is very accurate, and excels at play action which will be vital considering our run game has to be our most dominant weapon. I was already anticipating a 2-14 or 4-12 season if we were forced to go with Mcgloin under center. I like having him on our roster as a back up QB, but I think he's years away from even being a quality game manager. The Raiders still need to find a franchise QB, someone who can be the face of the franchise, make all the throws, cause defensive coordinators to stay up at night to game plan against, and to increase ticket and jersey sales. I don't want the Raiders taking a QB at #5, but if there was 1 QB who I wouldn't be upset with the Raiders drafting, it's Johnny Football. I can list 100 reasons why this kid is not going to make it in the league, but I watched that kid win a Heisman as a freshman, then I watched him improve the following year, and despite Alabama knowing and game planning against him, he put up over 500 yards of offense against the Tide. The kid is one hell of a football player, the best case scenario is that he falls to us in the 2nd round, but I'll be honest if the first 4 picks are Clowney, Watkins, Robinson, and Mack, and it comes down to a choice between Matthews and Manziel, I'd gamble on Johnny Football, it could be a risk that pays off in a major way in the future.
