We need a couple of big plays on offense and a couple of TOs on defense and no TOs on offense.
We need to win in the trenches.
What I have said above is well within reason.
I still think we're the most balanced team in the league. We've come out throwing the ball several times this year.
But I agree, Schaub doesn't extend plays, he doesn't need to start doing that today. He doesn't force the ball, he doesn't need to do that today.... at least, not until he needs to.
My biggest complaint of Matt, is that he doesn't seem
to play with the urgency I think he needs. Every drive needs to end in a TD, every third down needs to be converted. I know noone scores on every possession & no one ever converts every third down, but some QBs play like it & others don't.
I don't want Matt to play that way today. I want him to play his game, but better than he's ever played it before.
