On a naked bootleg, there's always at least one free blitzer.
Even if there were two blitzers, it was on Schaub to check into the run play to the opposite side.
It's so simple; you have the defense loaded up on one side (the weak side in this case), it means you have more blockers on the other side.
When the QB decides to stay with the bootleg, it is up to him to deal with the blitzers. He's the one who made the final decision; he's the one that needs to execute the play. It is his own choosing; nobody forced him to do it, not the HC, not the OC, not the defense.
