kingtexan is spot on .... The reason the offense is designed the way it is , is to protect Schaub and mask his weaknesses.

When everything is perfect - good protection and a receiver can beat his man .... Schaub can deliver a ball in the vicinity of the receiver.


But how often is everything perfect in the NFL ?!? They run those play action passes and bootlegs specifically to get Schaub downfield opportunities , that's about the only time they do take those downfield shots.

Why ?!
Because Schaub isn't capable of throwing a pinpoint laser into coverage.
Because if the protection isn't "very good" Schaub cant read the defense .... he settles for a check down.


Never see a fade , never see a back shoulder throw and the majority of his deep balls have a ton of air under them ... with a receiver having to wait for the damn ball.

Lack of arm strength.
Lack of mobility.
Lack of pocket presence.
Not reading defenses as well as he has in the past - three picks in three games , all resulting in TD's for the opposition , two directly.


All of that is impossible to hide behind a scheme. Schaubs ship has sailed IMO.

Me too.

That defense is second in the league giving up 249 yards per game , second only to the SeaDucks who give up 241.7. They are also second in pass defense (157.7 ypg) also second to the SeaDucks.


Despite the score , the defense did their job Sunday - it was the not so special teams and offense who blundered away a W.
