Re: Assessment on TJ Yates
Not much to assess this year. What I saw last year was a "green" game manager type that did not make many bad decisions, with a team that stepped up its game to compensate for the QB position.
Cannot make all the throws, not sure about vision, potentially good feet for the playbook. My assessment is incomplete, but do not believe he is a starting QB in the NFL.
QB is extremely important in a Kubiak offense, consequently, he has folks on this roster who he thinks can help this team win his way. I am 100% that he is confident in what he is looking for, which does not give me confidence in a Super Bowl appearance with him at the helm.
Griese, Plummer, Carr, Schaub, and Yates are what he should be measured on. He shouldn't get credit for Young or Elway in an objective historical view on his performance as a QB guru.
Kubiak took us to the playoffs, and has done his job. We have reached the limits of his skill set, and need to move on. He is not the only player's coach, QB guru, model citizen, "local" boy, etc, that could coach this team tomorrow or in the future.
No more run rate business McNair, give us a head coach/GM who can identify big opportunities and close them.
