This I agree with you. I think Schaub is too overly concerned with protecting himself from injury. I wouldn't doubt it's something the coaches are telling him to do.

Default Re: Gary Kubiak Presser

Here's a link to Texans podcasts. 6th from the top right now (as they add more every day) titiled Kubiak Monday Presser, is probably one of the most indebt presser I've heard in a while.

Some of the questions were to the point & similar to a lot of the questions we've asked here. I liked most of Kubiak's answers as they put some things in perspective.

Not trying to influence your opinion, so give the link a click & hear for yourself. Come back & let's discuss.

I listen to Cook & Kalu on 790, but that's it.


Payne is talking about Matt's audible system.
I was listening to Payne the other day and he was questioning why people wanted Joe Marciano fired because Coach Joe is a......."really nice guy". I changed the station after that and now that Texans season is over, will never go back to 610 (no pre or post game shows). Oh, Coach Joe is a nice guy, so he shouldn't be fired.



That kind of thinking is what is going to hurt this franchise.

What Gary is saying is:

"Believe in ME. Believe in what I have done, because that's what I will continue to do. What I need is for people to trust that my plans, which are UNCHANGING, will eventually be good enough once everything I've created comes together like it should."

Meanwhile, other HC's are trending toward being NOT as loyal to their own ideology. They're understanding that the best made plans often get scrapped for reasons outside their own control.

Gary Kubiak is of the old breed. The type of head coach who just knows that the system he learned, the system he played in, and the system he coached IS what produces champions. Like Tom Landry, and gawd I know that rubs people wrong, trust me, but like Tom Landry...Gary Kubiak is worshipping himself a little too much. He thinks his style of football, his style of offense, at the end of the day it's going to win because all it takes is players who are good enough (in his mind, just like Landry professed) to run HIS SYSTEM.

This is why Matt can only check to a RUN, and never to a new passing play. In Gary and Tom's world, coaches call the play and players run the play. Oh sure, you think you need to flip the run from the right and now run it to the left? Fine. But you are not going to assess and create, pre-snap, and try to adjust the overall play I, the coach, just called. No sir.

Which then tells you that whomever the QB is for the Texans, as long as Gary Kubiak is head coach, that QB will be a person who knows who butters the bread around there. "Be a good little soldier, do as you're told, I'll take the blame if it doesn't work."

This is how he shields his players from criticism, since obviously it really IS "All on him." Marciano, too. Marciano's faults are a result of Kubiak and he'll take the heat and he'll go to bat for Joe if Rick or Bob ever come knocking. Loyalty is good, but it's not the magic beans that it takes to grow a beanstalk to the heavens. And Gary, he'll never understand when it's time to cut bait.

I read this the other day, thought it was interesting.

Quote:
Washington's attack borrowed liberally from concepts Griffin used at Baylor. The key aspect: Griffin has options when he comes to the line of scrimmage. While the offensive line and backfield perform a running play, the receivers run a different passing play. Shanahan stressed Griffin wasn't using an audible; Griffin decided what play to run based on what the defense showed him.

"We really don't know what's going to happen until the defense plays, so we had running plays called and all of a sudden they gave us certain looks to take the running game away, and we threw a couple of bubbles early," Shanahan said. "And it's pretty impressive when a young guy comes in and plays with that composure especially in an environment like this."
In this system, a play has run elements & passing elements in it. At the LOS, RG3 decides if he's going to hand the ball off, or throw it to one of the receivers.

I believe our system is similar in so much as every play has different options, depending on what the QB sees, his progression changes. I think most people think Andre is Schaub's first option on the majority of the plays. I don't.

I think Matt comes to the LOS, sees the defense then he decides where the weakness is & which receiver is going to have the biggest chance of success. That player becomes his first read.

There are times when he'll put a man in motion. Usually that is to see how the defense adjusts, helps get a read on the defense. But sometimes it's also to get a particular receiver in a better situation.

For all I know, a knod tells the motion man to move to his first option, a stomp of his left foot tells him to motion to his second option & a wave of the arm tells him to motion to his third option.

Moving that motion man may not only put the motion receiver in a better situation, it might put Andre, or Arian, or whoever in a better situation. If they're playing zone & Andre is alone on the left, maybe he motions the slot to Andre's side to give the deep safety something else to think about.

Either way, I'm pretty sure Matt has much more control at the LOS than many believe. I also think they don't care to explain a lot of that to the media, because if we can't figure it out, chances are the defenses are having difficulty as well.
