However, I did not get pissed off when they settled for 3. I understand percentages and the attitude of depending on your defense, even when they have shown some signs of not being too dependable lately.
I heard something awhile back on local radio that indicated Kubiak had learned this conservative style from Bill Walsh. Kubiak is certainly not the first HC to play percentages and try to protect a lead, and he won't be the last.
Neither Walsh nor Shannahan are the gambling style.
Heck, Walsh didn't even allow Montana much freedom in his first five years.
DB, MSR, as usual.
