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.
it's been said many times that teams take on the personality of it's head coach. Viola!
