What's interesting is Kubiak making a point of saying a lot how each team is different, and doesn't want the comparisons.
I think what Kubiak will do on third and long has a lot to do with:
1. The continuity on the line and whether they are trustable.
2. How much they get into 3rd and extra long.
3. How the defense is playing. If the defense is wrecking shop, well then, sometimes the strategic way to get down field is punt the ball and destroy them.
Not what you want to do against good QBs, but often you saw Kubiak being more aggressive against better QBs. Denver game comes to mind with play calling.
