I see no new formations on offense. All I see are long, slow-developing pass plays that end up with Schaub triple-pumping the football while dancing as he stands in place, trying to wait for the play to fully develop, and he barely gets the ball off OR gets sacked.
This crap is wearing down everyone. It weighs down the offensive line who has to pass block longer than they should. It's hurting Schaub (physically) and causing him to develop Carr Syndrome. The receivers and TEs aren't open anymore and can't even turn around to find the ball because Schaub is on the turf or scrambled away and out of position to throw the ball.
This offensive coordinator, Dennison, has screwed up the offense. Period. And Kubiak isn't stepping in and taking control. Or is he? Whose freaking fault is it, ultimately, that after Game 1 of this season our offense cannot adjust, will not adjust, and decides to just repeat the same mistakes for an entire game?
No new formations, pitiful audibling, long-developing pass plays that almost always end horrificly (unless the DB falls down on the play), a fundamentally stupid decision to NOT run for 200 yards on The Manning. How can the coaches be so blind as to do all of these things, repeatedly, and NOT learn for the mistakes?
It makes me wonder if the coaches and players actually care. Wouldn't someone stop and ask themselves, "Gee, what we have been doing is NOT working. Maybe we need to stop everything we're doing, cancel things that are on the plate this week, and just run through some new options or get back to our roots on things."
I want to see more three-step drops and quick pass plays that GETS THE BALL IN THE HANDS OF OUR RECEIVERS AND TEs. I want to see more rushing plays with Foster. And I think our defense would agree with me. As bad as they are, they at least deserve to get a break every now and then.
This team is two bad games from imploding. Completely. You'll see gossip to the media, like when Dunta called out Carr, you'll see guys not even looking at each other on the sidelines. You'll see people just let routes go, or slow down on a route, or not make an effort to get both feet inbounds on a pass catch attempt, etc. Mark my words, Kubiak's job is on the line during these next two games. He wouldn't get canned after these two games...but it will signify that the players will say "Adios" to Gurry Kubiak.
There's no sense of urgency. And Kubiak and Smith have run this team like a cult. Reporters don't ask hard questions. Moves are made by Kubiak that insult the average person's intelligence. Basically, they do whatever they want and never have to face accountability for it. That's what a cult does: It operates outside the normal, standard procedures and cultural mores...it threatens members with ostracization if the members don't totally buy in, and it doesn't care about how it appears to the outside world. It's in its own world. Its own realm.
Kubiak is a space cadet at this point. He left the earth, and he's clueless as to what's happening down on earth where everyone else is living. And yet HE is in charge, he knows better than anybody else, etc. LOL.
This is a recipe for a firing. Plain and simple.
