How does that happen? After they have been killing you all day sending 6-7 guys -- and the line isn't slowing them down at all (there's was almost always at least one guy unabated to the QB), there is no hot route inside, crossing, a slant, or out to the flat or SOMETHING that doesn't require Case to wait for it to develop?
It just seemed so strange. Even if Case isn't making the read, why isn't a receiver making the read and going to a hot rot of some kind? It's takes two to make the read after all.
I did not understand the scheme here. Totally baffling.

So Kubiak was saying that Hopkins failed to give Keenum the hot route he needs on some of those blitzes?
And Kubiak pulled Keenum?
