I mentioned this back then after the loss.
It looks like Schaub was counting on McCourty to keep an eye on Foster for a fraction longer.
There was nobody on Foster.
Not to mention that AJ was also on the other side.
All of the guys up front came in on the 5-man blitz.
It's just too bad that Schaub looked right first.
If he had looked left first (toward AJ), McCourty most definitely would have been late.
