Just like he did Sunday, doesn't mean that he has to force anything or be any less cautious. It just means not settling or putting the ball in the defense's hands.

I want him to play with that, "We're down by 14" attitude all the time.

To me, it's just like the "effort" some of us don't see in Mario Williams on every down. I'm not seeing that effort from Schaub. I don't want him to play outside himself, I just want him to play like he did Sunday, like he did in 2009. It was another level type of playing, it was a competitive, winning, leader-type level.

Arian is going to give us 110% every play. So is Duane Brown. I've said it before & I'll say it again, to me, Matt gives up on plays too early. If we weren't down by 14, he'd have settled for a field goal, or a punt.

We don't run the score up on other teams, I think, because of that. Not because Gary gets conservative. But because our field general says, "Ah... let the night crew handle it."
I would think it's Kubiak's call.

Minimize the risk of turnover and we can win every game.

That's why we had to let Jacoby and Holliday go even though they are both electric returners.
