Big difference, is that Flacco stepped up, Ray Rice stepped up, that OL stepped up & that defense stepped up.
Today, Flacco only made one play I don't think Schaub could have made; that 12 yard run for the first down. But he also made a dozen plays (or more) that Schaub wouldn't have tried. His receivers were covered all night, but they stepped up & made plays as well.
Schaub ain't beating anyone by himself. & we saw Brady & Welker can't beat 22 guys.
That first Bolden TD in the endzone. Schaub most likely wouldn't have pulled the trigger on that one and let A.J. try to make the play.
