And with Kubiak and a lot of NFL coaches, that's kind of a problem. They don't want to trust anyone who isn't showing them they've got it down during practice. A gamer doesn't help those around him out during practice and might even be a detriment during the week.
We really don't know what they are doing in practice at times even if we watch it.
Kubiak could tell the QB, hey, throw a ball high and wide, I want to see if this receiver can go get it.
Or he could say, hey, I want you to throw the ball into that tight space; I want to see these two guys fighting for it.
Sometimes, at field level, we can't tell whether a receiver is running the correct route.
I mean, there's a ton of things that we don't have a clue about.
