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.
What's interesting about that statement is that not only could that have been the case, but it is ultimately a situation that Kubiak created & was not necessarily dealt. Kubiak chose to not address the WR position properly for years as he attempted to convince all that his offense could do well w/out a true #2 WR at all times. Kubiak, imo, was the culprit in creating the conservative offense, not the victim based on personnel. Jacoby, Holliday, Jean, & even Martin & Posey were not aggressive attempts in correcting a known problem area that limited the offense at times & thus created the conservative reputation. That is on Kubiak & Smith imo.
It's a shame that once again the owner had to make it clear on what he wanted & felt was needed to fix yet another glaring issue to take this team hopefully to the next level.
Thank you, McNair. I'm not sure Wade or DeAndre would be here if you hadn't voiced your opinion.
