Kubiak doesn't have the slant in our playbook which is probably why we can never defend it as well.

Walter on the first TD, why we didnt try it on that last play of the game is beyond me.

Because it isn't in the playbook. Did you not read the post you quoted?

We had so many opportunities to win this game that it should have never come to that play. The Vickers drop, the Rackers missed FG, etc. would have kept us close. The entire offensive line not sucking for 4 quarters.
We had the opportunities to not only win this game, but put it away early. That's where the fault should lie, not with a bonehead play by Schaub at the end of the game

Coulnt agree more. Quick slant 1st, jump ball 2nd. Why have 6'3 wrs if you're not going to theow the ball where no one can defend,above the head?

on overcoming mistakes and the Raiders also making mistakes) ďTo be in the position we were in with nine seconds left, eight seconds left. Really to me you got two shots to win the game right there with nine seconds. If you donít have a play you throw it away there and take your last shot with two seconds, three or one second, whatever it is. But, we had a chance to pull off a great comeback, overcoming a lot of problems and a lot of adversity on a day where you didnít play your best football in a lot of phases and still find a way to win. But we didnít do it and they made the play at the end.Ē

If you watch the replay there was still two seconds when schaub panicked and just threw it up..even at that point he could have fired a missle straight into the feet of jacob and had one second left...he blew it.

As for him getting coached not to take contact? I dont think so, I think he just doesnt like to get hit which is ultimately why he panicked and threw the ball up....The guy is 6'5 240 and he cant run through a DB for 5 yards? Maybe not, but atleast it would have shown some heart and toughness, no doubt in my mind Big Ben would have tried to run that guy over

Sure it might have been possible, but very unlikely and extremely hard to plan for when guys had to run down the field in a hurry style offense to spike the ball. The play we had ended up giving the room for Schaub to run for a TD, but he just didn't do it and he screwed up. It happens. We don't have Tom Brady back there.
There were 7 seconds left. There were 2 seconds left when the ball left Schaubs hand.

To be honest; I think if he'd gone for it, he would have got contact at the 2-3 yard line and probably not made it. Throwing it up was a better option, throwing it away was an even better option.
