Hope that this is not the case. Even if we get a healthy JJo back, it looks like we will have lost even more players to injury this week. Kubiak will need a more creative O play calling to keep us in the game and get us out of Monday without carrying our asses back to Houston. JMHO.
Thats a fact ... Ponder is no Brady but then again , what got Ponder going late , Brady cant do. He's not going to beat you with his legs. He's much like Schaub in that he's not often going to get out of the pocket other than on designed plays.
As for play calling by Kubiak , Im with you. If they expect to win this one , they are going to have to be a bit more creative than they have in past weeks.
I also dont believe that they can throttle it back if they get up a couple scores like they tend to do against the weaker teams. I know they dont want to show more than they are forced to , but they better come prepared to convers consistently on 3rd down , convert in the redzone and dominate the TOP.
