Re: LZ: The offense is very much broken and Kubiak canít rely on Ďthe systemí he has
I think the future of the NFL is in small, mobile QBs who have big fast WRs.
Russell Wilson and the Seahawks is the prime example.
Pete Carroll might have just become the next Bill Belichick in terms of finally learning what it takes to win in the NFL. Bill struggled multiple times before landing in N.E. and then stumbling upon Tom Brady...and even then, he had not employed the spread offense that eventually Tom Brady led into great success.
Pete should have started Matt Flynn, based on the standard "rules" of what happens when you pay a Qb a starter's salary. Pete, though, decided to go with a gut instinct. And I think the Seahawks might just play in the SB because of it.
They're legitimately dangerous now.
You have to go on gut instincts, and Kubiak and Smith just can't do that. It's still very old school to them. Loyalty and methodical plodding is the order of the day. Kubiak would never go for a fake punt when he's up on a team by 3 or 4 scores...Pete has learned what Bill learned: Eff 'em.
We're nice, as if we're to believe that the football gods prefer gentlemen and scholars. Look what it gets us.
