I disagree. I think that this teams offensive identity is making opposing defenses never really know what the offense is going to do. The threat of the big play, whether a run or pass, is the defining threat.
How many times have we seen Kubiak come out and throw the ball 3 or 4 times in a row on the opening drive to force the defense to honor that? You can either run to open up the passing game or pass to open up the running game. Either one works if the OL is doing a good job.
