Kinda makes me think Casey, Tate, & Brandon Harris were all Rick Smith picks & not Kubiak picks.
It's because Kubiak was not a good head coach and he was too stressed to do things like that.
You might see more things that make sense in Baltimore offense now that his responsibilities have been narrowed.
Now he won't be as stressed having to worry about big and small picture problems.
