I don't know that Seth has any more insight to Kubiak's offense than Vince Wilfork. But his understanding of Matt's ability is pretty much what we understand. He can check to a run play, he can change from a run to the left or to the right, he is expected to know the hot routes but that's about it.
However, he also acknowledges when the offense is working. It's really working & there is no need to audible.
Personally I feel if Matt is not capable of extending plays, if HE doesn't have a big time arm, then he needs the freedom to exploit a gross mismatch.
