little bit of both actually. We hadn't really faced anyone of note except Denver & by the 4th quarter they'd stymied our our offense a considerable amount and Manning had pretty much begun to have his way with our defense.
& last night we did take advantage of the defense like that with our last offensive TD; It was basically alll no huddle. It's just that Kubes, like alot of other coaches, don't like to depart too much from their philosophy...which for us is the run game. That can be good in alot of ways, bad in others. Last night we saw the bad.
Other than that, taking advantage of defenses like that with a no-huddle as a primary offense...well that's reserved for the top tier qbs. Rodgers fits the bill...Schaub, not so much. See buffalo to see what a no-huddle looks like with a garbage qb.
Aside from that, we've got protection issues.
