It makes a good deal of sense if he is dealing with mostly escalating foot pain from post traumatic changes, early arthritis and even minimal foot instability, neither of which are likely to be significantly adversely affected by one extra game (which could have been in his mind his ticket to rehabbing some of his in-season compromised reputation).......and a situation unlikely to be greatly improved with an intermediate period of rest that is followed by another long foot-wearing season. Can you think back to the last time you saw Schaub give us his past years' signature play action jump passes. It wouldn't have been this year. That maneuver would require jumping off of his right dominant foot......and then coming down on it hard.
