What did the team do on the 1st drive when Schaub went back in? - made it look easy going down the field. Schaub very ably demonstrated this in bringing the Texans back from 21 pts down against Baltimore (with another TD allowed making the come back 28 pts) including back to back 99 and 95 yd drives.
I think your perception is off because of misunderstanding or disagreement with Kubiak. If the Texans got the ball with 3 minutes left he wanted to get the lead with the clock at :00. It frustrated the hell out of fans who I listened beotch all around me in the stands about why isn't he going faster. So on this point my observations of the same events come to very different conclusions. Physical issues aside, Schaub formerly was excellent when blitzed and more than capable of up tempo offense.
Holy crap that was refreshing - talking football.
Ok refresh my memory, I was at that Monday Night Game but it has been a few moons ago. Was he in a constant hurry up or was he huddling during that comeback?
And I would agree there were some situations where Schaub had success in a hurry up, but I always felt that the success of those situations were few and far between.
I also agree that maybe what Kubiak did overshadowed the success of Schaub, but that aside, Schaub's decision making, over the last few years, has been lack luster at best.
I just don't see why keeping a QB that is, quite possibly on the downside of his career, to run a brand new, high up tempo offense...
