second - he did. and this is where i feel he's regressed. yates as a rookie had the most spectacular "devil may care" calm and quickness in both the huddle and in the pocket. i had the highest hopes because of that poise and quick decision. i dont see it anymore, not in preseason where he's taking the first option, nor his near panicked showing in relief of schaub last year. he's not handling pressure at all.
Sounds like Yates was a victim of Kubiak too, in the way I described about Keenum and Schaub in my previous post.
Kubiak is the common denominator.
