Default The history of the kubiak denny's menu.......

........and how it's supposed to work.

We're always talking about it, and many are still confounded by its use. So I decided to post on it. It seems to be just ONE BIG ALGORITHM

Maybe the offense had been slumping at the end of the season because Kubiak was trying to order a Grand Slam breakfast for 4 straight games.

Good read, though.

All this "Denny's Menu" stuff just screams fan ignorance if you ask me.

It's certainly fun to joke about, but IMO Kubiak makes himself any easy target because for most his game management skills have always left something to be desired. While I realize other offensive minded coaches look at similar play charts coaches like Sean Payton seem to do so while managing the game better. And Kubiak's apparent inability to delegate the play calling task to a member of his staff also adds fuel to the 'he's really just a glorified coordinator in over his head' argument.

Personally I'd prefer a HC that is monitoring the ebb and flow of the game as opposed to one who seems to lack the mental ability to do so while having his nose in the playbook.

He was probably ordering off of the new Hobbit items at Dennys.

You think he calls Rick Dennison, "Rick Dennyson"?

Default Re: The history of the kubiak denny's menu.......

The problem I see after reading that article is that Kubiak never does any of the things that writing the menu beforehand is supposed to allow you to do. It mentions exploiting favorable match ups that you see in real time on game day...Kubiak ran right at Wilfork all night the last Pats game and we never seem to run fades to Andre etc. I could go on and on. It really does seem like he's not watching the game sometimes.

Bleh the playcalling didnt change from the first 12 games to the final four .... the only difference was the players on the field made more out of those same plays over the first 12.

Good find. Good read. Interesting to know that this scripted play strategy goes all the way back to Paul Brown and Bill Walsh.

Makes you wonder if total randomness would work. Totally throw off any attempts at scouting and just call plays with a random number generator

I do hope more people would read it as it's very informative & would clear up a lot of misconceptions, such as being "strict" in following the script.

Quote:
Calling the plays

To begin the game, West Coast coaches simply call the plays according to the script. They pay close attention to how the defense is responding to the script. Any time they find themselves in a special situation, say, "backed up" at their own 5 yard line, they would simply choose a play from the "backed up" section on their playcall sheet. Once they were out of that situation (say the play goes for 15 yards) they would resume the script.
Also, if you listen to the Gary Kubiak show, I can think of twice where he said he liked the way something was going & decided to veer from the script for a couple of plays. I think the last Indy game was one of them. He said the run game was working so well (Arian plus the line) he decided to add a couple of runs in that drive.
