The snowball effect is in full gear, though, so he will have to exit the organization wondering what the heck happened.
To me, Kubiak does evolve in his scheme.
The problem is when he's going away from the ZBS, some (as in many) of his linemen aren't up to the task.
Take the double dual concept for example.
It requires a guard to be able to block two pass rushers on one play.
He has an aging Wade Smith with chronic knee problem.
He has BB, who's quick for a guy his size, but not quick and agile enough to be able to perform the task with consistency.
Now, if he has a mobile Schaub or an experienced Keenum, I would have no squabble. He has neither.
In a rush to evolve, the coaching staff forgot about adaptability.
They've been forcing a few too many square pegs through round holes.
