With Newton engaged with the DE (he may as well have whiffed) and the run fake going the opposite direction ..... there isn't anyone to pick up the blitzer , Schaub has to make him miss or eat the sack.
With Schaub's cement shoes I think they are going to have to be much more creative with their protections.
Something I saw the Patriots do on a play action roll out last week was have the center pull & the rest of the OL block down the line as if it were a trap play but the center rolls with the QB picking up any defensive interference .... Brady had all freakin day to survey the field. Very well designed play by Belecheat ....
