More people noticing Kubiaks Conservative play calling...
Atleast it isnt just the fans who are noticing this. You want to win then you have to take some shots, Kubiaks confidence dont leave me feeling to confident about the New England game !!!!
The first two questions Gary Kubiak fielded at his Monday news conference were about the teamís red zone offense.
In each answer, he mentioned checking the ball down.
First: "We had a lot of second-and-nines down there from that standpoint, but we got to make the small plays whether you check a ball down on a three or four-yard pass. Youíve got to do that so youíre giving yourself a legitimate chance."
A chance at what? A closer field goal?
Second: "We got played the other day in a bunch of quarters defense, people sitting on the goal line makes it tough to get behind people, those types of things. If people are going to play you that way, you got to run the ball efficiently. Youíve got to check the ball down efficiently."
Houston QB Matt Schaub and coach Gary Kubiak will each need to be aggressive in order to defeat New England on Sunday.If you're already in field goal range, what's the benefit of super-efficient checking down, exactly? To prove to a defense you know how to answer the coverage they are calling to keep you out of the end zone by calling plays that keep you out of the end zone?
"Oh, yes, and one more thing, dear Lord ó about our enemies? Ignore their heathen prayers and help us blow those little bastards straight to hell. Amen again."
