You really don't get to be a great come-from-behind QB unless you're not playing well enough to be in front from the beginning.
The sign of a true leader. He's probably not the guy who fumbled the ball to the other team, or the receiver who tipped the ball to a DB, or the OLman who missed a block....

Then again, maybe he was. But in this statement, he's taking the blame for the entire team, while accepting the credit for the 4th quarter comeback.

Don't we all. Even Schaub. I know it looks like he didn't really want to throw that TD & would have much rather Bullock come out for a 21 yard chip-shot, to keep it close. Or that he prefers not to convert on third down so he can watch the living legend that is Shane Lechler... but he & Tate, & OD, & Andre... even Kubiak would like to score on every possession.
