This should be an easy W no matter how bad Schaub has been. Run the dang ball and crush Bradford.
If we lose this one it's ovah
If we manage to win this one but haven't changed a thing it's still over.
I think this game is going to be the one that delays real change for two more weeks and ends up putting us at 3-4. We beat the Rams, everyone smiles and relaxes, and then the Chiefs bring us and Schaub back down to earth. 3-4 record.
Then we see the Colts and Luck coming to visit and we end our first half of the season getting our asses beaten at home to fall to 3-5
The time to make that change is right now with a fairly modest challenge coming here. The time to let TJ or Case take the reins is in front of a grateful and supporting home crowd against an opponent that neither one of them would have to be a hero to beat. That gives them time to get settled before visiting KC and two weeks of playing before they face the Colts back here.
If we run Schaub out there and he muddles through a win without screwing up too bad and that is followed by a bunch of "We always knew he had it in him" back slapping then we're really screwed because the good teams aren't going to stop coming and nothing will have really changed.
We'll be seeing a lot of this after Matt and the Texans beat St. Louis
