What upsets me the most is knowing nothing is going to change anytime soon.. our wagon is hitched to Schaub
We were actually not as bad in the red zone as I originally thought. We scored a TD 54.69% of the time, which is up from last season, and also good enough for 14th in the NFL. In 2010, we were ranked 5th in red zone TD efficiency at 62.26%. This past season, we were probably an average red zone team. But 2010 proves that Schaub can lead an effective red zone offense.
Sorry, I'm one of those guys that tries to twist a positive spin on everything.
