I think Schaub was doing the same thing. I think, that's what Kubiak wants. He wants to control the ball. If we've got the lead, you're going to see "smart" decisions from the QB, to not put the team in bad situations.

But when we're behind & need a miracle to win, they are told to be less cautious & trust their help.

Matt looked Mundane to start every game last year (remember) then when we got down by two or three scores, the flood gates opened. Like it did in Cincinnati.

I'd much rather Kubiak let them do what they do & work on getting better at it so that we run the score up like the Pats or the Colts (of old) or the Saints.

But he probably won't & right now with Yates, I don't think it's prudent.

And just like in Batman, the bad guys act way different when facing Brady than facing Drew Bledsoe.

TJ Yates is facing that same sort of situation.
Not exactly. That was a much better, a much more balanced team than the one you see today. Tom Brady wasn't spectacular that first Super Bowl (I don't remember) & I don't think much that second one either. Those were pretty good defenses & a ball control offense that won.

It was much later that Tom Terrific expanded his role & became the guy you see today....... same as Ben.
