Matt cannot change every play. There are certain situations where he can check to another play based on something that has been predetermined by the coaching staff.
Matt cannot walk up to the line, see a 'favorable match up' and audible to whatever the heck he wants to. When they are preparing for the games during the week they go over different looks and Kubiak says, if we get this look we're going to audible to this play. It's Matt's job to recognize when they get those favorable looks when they are in the right formation to exectue. He can also make an opposite call to run the play the other direction.
Kubiak and Matt have talked about this a few times.
And I agree that when someone stops it that means that someone(s) didn't do their job right...
This offense is no more of a gimmick than any other scheme.
