It begs the question if going forward, as the NFL distinctly has transformed more and more into a "passing league," if this will leave us in the dust as a modern day dinosaur.
I'm not overly concerned with the scheme, Doc.
Imagine Montana or Elway running the WCO for the Texans.
Don't you think Kubiak would be more willing to open up the offense?

Or look at what the Colts did with Luck.
They also run the WCO, but they emphasize the QB more.

I think not having another deep threat made Kubiak more conservative, besides Foster and Forsett.
Hopefully, that will change with the addition of Hopkins and a more confident KMart.
Hopefully, Jean will take the next step, or Bonner can be thrown into the mix.
The more guys who can get open - whether deep or underneath (and not dropping the ball) should instill more confident in Kubiak and Schaub.
