And for anyone that may say that they haven’t noticed any limp, and therefore there is nothing wrong with his foot. You can have significant discomfort or “instability” of the Lisfranc back foot when severely stressed momentarily, like planting and pushing off, and still not limp when walking or gingerly running. The momentary acute stress on the back foot alone or the anticipation of it being painful is enough to affect all aspects of Schaub’s game......including strength of throw, accuracy of throw (long, short or wide), ability to acutely side step to the left or step up (push off) in the pocket, or bootleg, QB sneak or play action to the left (try to find the last time Schaub ran one to the left).
I think this explains a lot about why the offense moved so slow this season.
I also think this is the reason why Schaub won't be the starter next season.
