I think Schaub it a competent QB. I tend to believe that coaching is not putting him in position to play to his strengths and avoid his weaknesses.

Has there been a definitive explanation yet about the communication between
Schaub & JJ in that situation ? I mean did JJ do what he was supposed to do and break in the right direction and Schaub just not throw the pass he was expected to, or did JJ not break in the right direction, or do we even know those things ?
Situational awareness. Manning would have taken the drop, seen nothing, and thrown the ball away. That leaves 4-5 seconds on the clock.

Is that coaching or player instinct? Combo of both?

Schaub should have had the instinct to know the play was covered/busted and saved some time for another play. That he did what he did is not all on him, simply because the entire play was indicative of the current state of this franchise. Busting ass to get in position but shooting themselves in the foot when the win is within reach.
