by play breakdown i mean calling plays where at least 80% of the yardage is gained via a pass in the air & has a solid chance of being converted on 3rd and long.......vs the safe screen, draw or off tackle run play he usually calls where the skill player has to make up the majority of the yardage themselves by making defenders miss.
Way too often Kubiak just surrenders on drives with these kinds of plays.... do something that's not expected of you a few more times on drives...just make the defense at least "think" you might do this or that. Every game we lost last year we were thoroughly
dominated on offense. And amongst the many reasons why that was the case is b/c the opposing defense had our number down pact. Why do you suppose that is? How is it that a defense can shut u down so easily?
