True, but we all know on that play he was breaking left across the field as it shows in the other image, and the DB held him which is illegal contact or holding. Not trying to make excuses, the proper play IMO was to throw the ball away at that moment and live to run another play.
This is why I say texans need a qb with arm talent. Even with case extending plays and throwing go route,he doesn't have the arm to throw that 15yd out route. The db are expecting inside routes vs the texas. On that still shot,that route based on cb technique could've been converted to a out,flag,or comeback. Since case and schaub don't have the arm talent to make that throw.
