And I don't think he doesn't trust them. I think he understands the pulse of the team. I need to see that series again, but I'm sure the two plays that pushed us back to 3rd & goal from the 15 were pretty bad. When the offense has too many bad plays close together, he will turtle up & I don't know if that's a bad thing.
For the OP, I am ONLY referring to the endzone. Schaub said it very matter of factly - kind of 'you're Les Miles' or 'Pete Carroll' if you do anything other than hand off and kick for 3.
My questions is not necesarrily on that one play, but for the entire season is that kind of coaching/attitude part of our redzone problems? Is there reason for concern if we plan to take that to the playoffs?
