Shaub took the loss after he threw 9 passes.... Sage threw 20 something. Sage took those games over in the first quarter well he started the second quarter in the second one.... he was tied or ahead in both of them.... and lost them both. Tell me... he plays 3/4 or more of the game... and is tied or ahead in both and you think Schaub should take the losses? Come on man give me a break. If he had won those games you'd be lauding him for them just like you are with the Miami game 2 years ago.
The fact is even if you attribute those loses to Sage (despite that he didnt go into the game as the starter), he still comes away with a winning record overall. Oops.
Sage can only play the situations he is put in. And so far he has exhibited the ability to run the offense efficiently. He had too many turnovers, but his TD - INT ration wasnt bad. The games he won dont count because the teams weren't good enough (btw, all of the teams he played had top 15 pass defenses). Yet if he loses to those teams surely it would be a strike against him, even though the victory counts for nothing. Sage just cant get credit no matter what he does. As long as he puts his team in position to win, thats what really matters though, even more than respect.
