I disagree. Go back and watch the Oakland game. Tate's best runs
came from the pistol, and every time Keenum went under center in
the second half the OL was blown up -- drastically on stretch plays.
This OL isn't capable of zone blocking anymore. The players are
no longer suited to it. The right side is a mess and Brown has lost
a step. (injury most likely)
When the Texans are in the pistol, the defense has to maintain discipline
because there could be a run, QB run, or pass. They just can't pin their
ears back and send the house because Case is mobile.
In the second half, a good majority of under center plays failed instantly
when the ball was snapped. Honestly, it was so obvious that Gary
went hurry-up to keep Matt clean and when they started blitzing him
-- the same thing happened.
This o-line cannot provide enough time for any QB operating under center
when the heat is on..
Kubiak is being a total stubborn knucklehead forcing a square peg into
a round hole. His scheme cannot be run with the folks we have on
the field -- he's just the only person inflexible enough to cope with that
fact so poorly..
Makes me wish Harbaugh was here. Case is a much more accurate
passer than Kaepernic and their scheme would better fit our guys on
the field right now.

I happen to think the offense looks much better when you take the snap from center, NFL defenses are not getting caught off guard with the read option stuff anymore.
An NFL QB should be able to read a defense, if your wideouts aren't helping you tuck tail and run FORWARDS never should you take 10-15 yard sacks. That has nothing to do with scheme or playcalling.
