The top six most productive quarterbacks in 2012 read like a who's who of future inductees to Canton.

Aaron Rodgers. Tom Brady. Eli Manning. Peyton Manning. Drew Brees. Ben Roethlisberger.

Between them they possess 10 Super Bowl rings and seven MVP awards.

Matt Schaub is seventh.

Today's article of the day comes from Elizabeth Merrill of ESPN.com who profiles Schaub.

Schaub is so self-effacing and out of the limelight that most people don't realize that he sits right on the cusp of greatness.

The profile is a great read and nicely illustrates the difference between a very good quarterback who has won a Super Bowl and one who hasn't.

Should the Texans take home the ring in 2012, Schaub will become a household name and everyone will realize how good he's been for a long time.
