Does it really make a difference? Like Corrosion was saying, if Schaub can get back to protecting the ball, we win, we win a lot, & we have a really good shot to win the Super Bowl..... which is the ultimate goal. Isn't it?

This isn't Green Bay where there is little run game to rely upon. It isn't a Peytonesque scheme that requires a large amount of checking and changing at the LOS. The run action alone is what dictates how the defense plays against the offense and the QB simply needs to pick up the pieces. The QB is asked to run a clock management oriented game plan and make the proper reads and throws when the time comes. The QB isn't being asked to go out and win each game on the strength of their arm or legs alone. He isn't asked to run an up tempo offense and to get his team lined up and running on all cylinders on every drive at max tempo. The scheme is much easier than what a lot of teams are asking of their QB, especially with the implementation of zone reads and designed QB runs nowadays.

So yes, this scheme is not as intensive on a QB than others within the league right now.
First... it's not the "system" that is "clock management" blah, blah, blah.... This is the same system used in Denver & San Francisco before..... the same system Shanahan is using (or trying to) in Washington, tailored to the QB. In our system, the QB led the league in passing not too long ago & was voted to two Pro Bowls.

I also believe Kubiak, every team in the league wants to be balanced. New England's system isn't to chunk the ball 60 times a game, neither is Greenbay's. Both teams thought they had a running back & it hasn't worked out so well, yet. When they get to the Baltimore's & the SanFrancisco's & the Seahawks of the league, not being able to run the ball is going to bite them in the rear.

The point you're making though, making clutch plays at clutch moments, has been Schaub's weakness for a long, long time & has nothing to do with the system.
