It blows my mind that this offense seems to lack some of the basic functions of many other NFL offenses. Most noticeable is the lack of a true hurry up and the very limited pre-snap audible abilities at the line of scrimmage.

Kubiak has a bit of that old school "this is what we do and we do it well" attitude to him. He seems to believe that as long as we can do one-dimension really well, then that's all we need to do. But other teams are figuring out how to dismantle that one-dimension, and we are seeing an inability to adapt to that on-going evolutionary process.

And Wade seems to be from the same mold with his defensive schemes.
