An oline is there to block to the QB can have time to make his throws. The only one scapegoating is you by trying to put an entire game all on a QB before it's even played no matter what circumstances help him or possibly hinder him. It's a stupid idea from the jump. This is an offense that is a run first offense. Our passing game is predicated off of play action and bootlegs. That means if our running game isn't doing much then we'll need a great performance from the Oline to give the QB time to pass the ball on limited plays.
You act as if an entire offense is all about what a QB does and that other factors don't help him or hinder him. Your entire thread title suggests that. Stop trying to put everything on one player in a team sport. This isn't MMA or boxing.
you're the one that's freaking blind. pass protection is also on the qb not just the offensive line.
i get that matt is no rg3, but there are things that a qb can do to help an offensive line.
its called being cagey in the pocket.
-get rid of the ball quicker
-throw the ball away
-step up in the pocket
-hit your check downs faster
Things that drew brees and another statue, tom brady excel at unlike schaub.
I was watching the nfl network and the playbook guys were breaking down schaub's play and it showed schaub not being able to pull the trigger with guys wide open and with him having protection.
you're the one that's being blind or being obtuse if you cant see schaub is at fault for a lot of those sacks.
