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.
The first half of the Seattle game.
No way Schaub could have done what he did there if what we do hasn't evolved with the times. They're #2 in passing defense right now.
It's more likely that Case isn't ready for that right now, that Kubiak is trying to get Case to master his system way too early, instead of doing what Harbaugh, Shanahan, & Carroll did to buy him some time.
Case is looking decent under center, but we should be running more shotgun/pistol, 4 & 5 wides... let the kid do what he knows.
That's the real problem.
Remember that drawing of the bootleg compared to Matt's bootleg? Well, for whatever reason, Case is running backwards like Matt's bootleg. Two games ago, he was running forward. 19 yard sacks....... that's ridiculous.
& I'm not blaming Case.
