Those where he was hurried contained more of the errant. He continued to look slow when compared to pre-injury 2011. He is still throwing off of his back foot too often, and has shown no ability so far to simply quick side-step or play action to the left or show us any examples of his old jump passes. I'll continue to watch him as the season progress.........as will everyone else. As much as the Saints game was hyped as being a strong test for our offense, keep in mind that Ryan's 3-4 defense was just recently installed, and was hardly clicking. Schaub can certainly expect to be much more seriously challenged both in pass rush and pass coverage beginning the 1st quarter of the regular season. Only then will we truly begin to have an idea of how he will respond..........and, thereafter through the long season, how long he will "hold up."
Blah, blah, blah, Doc!! Can his foot hold up this season???
First off, you called the "breakdown" of Schaub last season coming off his Lins Franc injury. A lot of past players that have been subjected to that same injury which many have never recovered from.
Bottom line question, can he make it back this season??
Have you seen anything in this preseason that tells you that his foot will hold up better than last season????
