There's been rumors and talk that maybe he's been playing with and through injuries the past couple of years. If that's true and if he returns to 2008 form, that could be huge because 2007/2008, KW was a clutch, go-to, move-the-chains receiver. 2009/2010/2011... not so much.
Regardless. If Everyone in the organization "knew" KDub was capable of a game like that, he wouldn't have been asked to take a paycut. He would have restructured or exteded his deal. As it is, He obviously plays better than he practices & Kubiak went on faith & put in a few plays for him to "stretch" the defense.
He looked like a #2 receiver. A prototypical productive #2. Reggie Wayne to Marvin Harris, Torry Holt to Isaac Bruce, Torry Smith to Anquan Boldin.... ok, he looked better than Boldin & Smith combined, but you get my point.
