When the bright lights came on and he was on the biggest stage in the NFL, Eli delivered. (with very possibly the luckiest damned catch since the Steeler's "Immaculate Reception")
Can we say that about Schaub...?
This is the total disconnect for me. Can we say what about Schaub? - that he never had one of the NFL's luckiest catches made to avoid a playoff loss? Sure, but so what? How does that reflect on either QB. It was a poorly thrown desperation attempt which magically paid off due to the miraculous play of a never had more than 215 yds in a season, soon to be cut and out of the league WR. That's it.
