I think there is a lot of truth to this. I think Kubiak took the chains off a little prematurely.
Prior to the game, I can understand thinking the kid was going to have to make things happen. But, when we got to the second half & we "knew" our defense had Flacco & Rice in check, it should have been back to "conservative Yates"
I'll have to watch it again, maybe that is what happened, because I do remember most of the throws to start the third qtr were to a wide open Aj, then he hit OD.... & KDub....
The Ravens' D did step it up the second half & we didn't score a single point. So maybe it was 4:00 left in the game & Kubiak went back to letting Yates own the game.
I don't know.
