Default Kubiak: Schaub couldn’t audible out of “very, very poor play”

Quote:
The Texans threw the game away on Sunday when quarterback Matt Schaub threw an awful pass to Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, which Sherman returned 58 yards for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. On Monday, Texans coach Gary Kubiak acknowledged that it was a terrible play all around but said Schaub had to run it because that’s the play that was called.

Asked if Schaub had the freedom to audible out of that play, Kubiak answered, “No, once we called it, started the motion, it was game on. So we just had a very, very poor play like I told you.”


That answer is hard to understand: If Schaub saw that the play wasn’t going to work, why didn’t he have the authority to call an audible? And if he didn’t have the authority to call an audible, what about calling timeout? Or taking delay of game and calling a different play after the five-yard penalty? Or if he absolutely had to run the play, why not throw the ball out of bounds, or take a sack, or take a knee? Anything would have been better than a pick-six.

But the fact that Kubiak said he didn’t give Schaub the authority to call an audible suggests that Kubiak doesn’t have a lot of confidence in Schaub’s decision making. Asked about Schaub being on a short leash, Kubiak answered, “How short of a leash is he on? He’s our quarterback. Like I said, we’ve all got to do things a little better.”


One thing the Texans need to do better is figure out how to avoid any more “very, very poor plays.” Those are the plays that lose games.

modern day offensive coaching guru has a system where one can't change the play in a bad situation. Brilliant stuff. La Porte HS QB's have a better system than this for being in a bad play.

I think it's time for Bob to call an audible on the Coach. I would say that it's time for Rick Smith to call an audible but that's laughable since Rick Smith isn't allowed to call an audible either.

Yea, I wish. The jig is up on Kubiak.

Quote:
n the locker room after the game, safety Earl Thomas didn’t deflect credit from Sherman. After all, he had to make the interception — his second of the season. But Thomas gave much of the credit to defensive coordinator Dan Quinn for his play call.

Quinn noticed on film that Houston liked to roll out Schaub off play action in short-yardage situations, then have him quickly dump the ball in the flat. So when the Texans faced a third-and-four with about three minutes left, Quinn dialed up a play designed specifically to thwart that.

Quinn had safety Kam Chancellor blitz off the edge, which negated Schaub’s ability to roll out after faking the handoff. He also had Sherman hover in the flat.

After turning and seeing Chancellor in his face, Schaub quickly threw the ball up for grabs to tight end Owen Daniels. Sherman played it perfectly and jumped in front of the pass.

“You’ve got to give credit to the D-coordinator on that one,” Thomas said.

Seattle’s defense had seen that exact play in Friday’s practice when going against the scout-team offense. In practice, Sherman also picked off the pass in the flat.

Defensive end Chris Clemons said Seattle’s defense doesn’t run that play often, but he said Quinn knew what Houston would likely do on that play based on the Texans’ formation and down.

“We had practiced exactly that,” coach Pete Carroll said. “So it was really cool that it happened, but even more so for the poise and athleticism for Sherman to pull it off. It was the way it was supposed to be.”

Sherman, of course, completed the play by taking it 58 yards for a touchdown minus half his footwear.

“It might be the longest return without a shoe in the NFL,” Sherman said. “You got to check that.”

Predictable, routined. Kubiak was simply out-coached on that play.

I heard the play by play team say that Schaub is the most blitzed QB in the NFL. No shock since he handles pressure poorly and doesn't stretch the field to make teams pay.

If I had to guess, I'm sure that's how we shut them down in the first half.

I agree with you 100%.
By the Grace of the Football Gods does Kubiak pull off a win. How many years have we said his play calling, his decisions are overly predictable?
We've called it overly conservative many times, but I like what the guy's on 790 call it "tendencies".
No creativity or thinking outside of the box gives you a Kubiak coach.
The talent's always been there.

I don't know if Rick Smith is allowed to call an audible, but I do know he wouldn't call one back.

And give Kubes a break, he's a first time head coach.

===================

This brain trust should have been gone five years ago. Baby steps. Incremental improvement. That was never the "right way" in today's NFL.

How do you stay positive after reading that? Seriously. It's no wonder why the well coached teams make us look stupid. Never mind the Broncos, watch us get beaten by the CHIEFS.

Default Re: Kubiak: Schaub couldn’t audible out of “very, very poor play”

If this is true, that's got to be the stupidest call I've ever heard of. The QB has to have the flexibility to make a change at the last moment. The defense is constantly shifting around before the snap. I guess we now know why Peyton didn't come here. He must've been afraid he'd have to biatch slap Kubiak.

Or maybe Kubiak knows what he has for a QB and doesn't let him audible because it just isn't a good idea.

This sucks. Bad.
479 yards of total offense, 2 TDs, with a gimpy QB having a bad day, who doesn't have the ability to audible.

Imagine if he could.

One million billion yards & 30 TDs a game.

No. That QB is playing in Denver. I doubt they want to trade him.
