The "restrictive" play calling thing has been in place in this system for a long time. It won Super Bowls with Joe Montana, Steve Young, & John Elway. It made Jake Plummer look like a damn fine QB & it took Matt Schaub to two division championships, two pro Bowls & a pro bowl MVP.
It's not the same as other systems, but it works.
I think you are not looking at the entire picture.
Yes, this is a great system, but defenses have evolved. Why wouldn't you add wrinkles such as more freedom for the qb to keep up with the defenses.
There are a lot of old techniques and systems that been used to win superbowls. But smart coaches evolve. Doesn't mean you have to scrap everything you do, but coaches should do whatever it takes to help their offense play better.
Not allowing the qb to do more at the line than what kubiak allows in the year 2013 is really just silly.
