Dude is winning playoff games as a head coach, yet there's always some reason to be unhappy about it, I guess.
Funny thing is how many act like they KNOW, when in fact they know nothing. Kubiak is from a branch on the Bill Walsh coaching tree, so it makes sense that he's using a lot of the strategy, plays, and concepts from Walsh's WCO. The big play call sheet is one of those tools at his disposal.
Well, when Kubiak becomes Bill Walsh...let us know.
Right now, he looks like he's lost in his own genius and is more concerned with using his pre-planned strategy rather than intensely watching the game and figuring out the flow of the game for his offense to then adjust on-the-fly and react to real life, not what he cooked up beforehand.
The Patriots ate crow and grabbed Josh McDaniels quicker than a screen pass against the Texans. Apparently they let their coordinators do what they do best, but for some reason it has always seemed (via watching Kubiak on the sideline and in Kubiak's own comments) that Gary thinks he knows better.
To what degree does he dabble in the play calling? Who knows. More than he should, that's my hunch. We got ballers on this team, no way should this offense face an entire month of bogging down like they have.
