Plus, think about this, Elway was known for comebacks...meaning Kubes was calling a game that led to the Broncos being too conservative or just behind.
Sadly if Kubes couldn't get it done consistently with the man many consider in the top 5 for greatest QB of all time, how will he get it done with a guy who is maybe in the top 20 for current QBs?
Dop, check the record again with Profootball Reference for example.
Shanahan took over as HC and Kubiak became OC in 1995.
They immediately improved that offense.
The Broncos O outperformed the D by a decent to good margin in all those years with Kubiak as OC despite giving more resources (draft and FA) to their D.
