I don't know that Schaub was put into a position to win. We saw him with 4 & 5 receivers (counting TEs & RBs) & he was successful. When he only had 3 receivers in a pattern, he just couldn't find an outlet & he's not going to extend a play.
We asked him to do that & he looked goofy, but that's like asking Brady to play left handed (probably still would have whup'd our butt).....
Matt Ryan didn't do much more than Matt today, as far as extending plays & such, but he had playmakers we just don't.
The biggest thing we need to do going forward.... if Schaub is still going to be here, is cut Kevin Walter. He should not be on any NFL roster. We need Posey, Martin, & Jean fighting for the 3 & 4 spot & we need to bring a legit #2 WR. And that won't be worth a crap if Kubiak doesn't game plan to his QBs strength, meaning more 3 & 4 WR sets & throwing the ball.
We can run the ball after we get a lead, not before.
