When teams work their entire defensive scheme around a running back like foster, he is not exactly a "non-factor". Even if he is averaging 3.9 yds per carry. He dictates the other teams defensive gameplan.
As far as kubiaks decision to run on 2nd and 20; it's easier to covert a 3rd and 10 rather than a 3rd and 20 assuming an incompletion happens. Most defenses sit in dime packages on a 2nd and 20 so throwing for a big gain is harder. It's easier to run on those packages due to less down lineman/linebackers.
Just Because kubiak doesn't heave it down field on 2nd or 3rd and long plays doesn't mean he can't take us to the Super Bowl. In fact, I think it shows the maturity of a coach to know how his team is built and stick with a gameplan. Face the facts, we have a conservative coach. The sooner you accept that, the less likely you will be upset every Sunday.
By the way, were 7-1 and widely considered the best team in the AFC and a top contender to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.
Things are good right now.
