The issue isn't going for the TD om 4th down. It's getting the TD in the initial 3 downs. BTW, if you are settling for field goals, you are not "mopping the floor" with anyone.

Schaub's sack percentage is similar to Brady's. Schaub is having no more protection problems than any other QB in the playoffs. He just won't or can't pull the trigger in the red zone. And he has zero mobility to make plays out of the pocket. We can run circles around all of the problems, but if Schaub could make more plays, the Texans would score more TDs.
