Totally different from hurrying a throw.
That Casey route is a safety valve route, "Break glass in case of emergency". That is not a throw you make if no one is open kind of route. The only reason a QB would throw that pass if there is an instant breach in pass protection.
THAT is not a throw of a QB checking down because his receiver aren't open. THAT is a hurry throw by a panicked QB.
Schaub is a head case right now. It's like David Carr is the lone tenant up there.
