Kubiak is a great OC but I think he gets out-coached at times. Wade doesn't have the players to stick to man coverage against elite QB's. That was a predictable result if you don't mix up your coverages.
We did mix in some zone coverage as well as switched man instead of straight man.
The D got burned because they messed up in coverage.
Again, outplayed or ill-prepared.
