Now, I still have hope and believe that as our running game and line play improve, he'll get hit less and stay healthy. On the other hand, I'll be holding my breath next year because Schaub was seemingly dinged up basically all year last season with one injury or another, culminating in his should injury.
Despite great potential, a player can only help you if they can stay on the field, and until Schaub can prove that he's capable of that I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.
I don't know if you remember us in the redzone with Schaub in the game but we were very very shaky. Its understandable, especially with a new team and system etc. The field shrinks and time becomes more and more crucial. And I didn't say I don't think he can get it fixed. Just that it doesn't matter what you do in the first 80 yards of the field, for the most part its that last 20 that determines how many games you win. We can't go Lee Evans on everyone every game.
