By the time he got a team around him, it was too late and I'm not going to blame the guy for getting a lisfranc injury from Fat Albert falling on his foot. If we're going to blame anyone for Schaub lacking the IT factor, it should be Smithiak because they couldn't find a Defense Coordinator that was worth a damn.
Yeah as long as the QB can finish that last drive to win the game and not lose close. Most of his stats in his good years were in situations where we were down by a lot and the pressure was not as hard.
