Don't worry. We are a run-first team and Kubiak has said this since he got here. The run game will continue as we have seen it. The difference is that in the passing plays, we will actually see stats like receivers with more than 2 catches, and we won't see Owen/Joel/Arian as the receptions/receiving yards leaders.

What will happen is we will likely gash more teams. We should be able to keep the ball out of Matt's hands enough that he doesn't make his 1 WTF pass every game. Matt is a great QB when all of the throws are available and he doesn't have to force any passes. Also, come clutch time, we have the receiver that will catch the ball when we have to win, period (vs. Miami in the game won from Matt's QB sneak, or Washington last year).

With as well as we have been running, teams will have one of two options: 1. Stack the box to stop the run, or 2. Cover Andre.


Doesn't sound like a problem to me.
