He deserves some blame, but I can't even begin to understand how you guys just block out all of these other problems.
I did not see the o-line or Foster completely under-throwing a receiver in stride for an easy INT. Schaub wasn't even slightly pressured on that INT.
There is plenty of blame to go around, but one player touches the ball on every offensive play, and one player tries to make all the passes. This is not a run first offense. Everything is predicated on the pass, and when the QB is off, the entire offense sucks wind.
You seem to blinded by Kubiak hatred and oblivious to Schaub's obvious shortcomings.

It wasnt the playcalling , it wasnt the coaching , it was Schaub missing open reads or flat out throwing bad balls.
No , the OL didnt do him any favors against the Dolts backup DL .... but again , the plays were there to be made. The fact that the Dolts backup's were able to ruin the Texans day should go along way in telling us what has to be fixed going forward .... since we are stuck with Schaub for at least two more seasons.
In a league where games are decided by one play , your QB cant leave 9 of them on the field.
My thoughts exactly. I think this team could go to the SB with Kubiak as head coach, but he's picked Schaub as his QB and seems to be intent on making it work. I also think Kubiak is the kind of coach that does not want to change horses mid-stream, so in Schaub we (mis)trust until the wheels eventually fall off.

probably not I'd guess.
Belichick's team does not celebrate division "championships". Winning the division is just another brick in the road and a stepping stone to the final goal.
Our franchise, on the other hand, sees the division "championship" as a reason to let off the gas and take a month-long break from things. It's happened two years in a row now. I'm really excited about getting another banner for Reliant!
