Schaub must be punished.
Great article, but of course, I knew it when I read it that it was our very own Texans Chick.
As far as your point, she hit the nail on the head:
The quarterback’s responsibility is to not force a play if the defense does things that make the play not workable.
This is why fans are upset with him. For the WCO to be successful, the QB MUST be the player on the field that makes the consistently good decisions. He does not have the be the best athlete (obviously), but he must be the one that does not make blatantly stupid mistakes that give the other team points to tie the game with less than 3 minutes left on the clock.
All that said, Schaub is our QB this year regardless of the whine and cheese crowd, so put away the pitchforks if you're going to be a Texans fan. You'd better root for his success in spite of your own reservations and/or dislike of the player.
If you are rooting for him to fail, you are not a fan of this team, IMO.
