Re: Who deserves more blame for the loss
Joe Mays has looked pretty OK to me. I don't understand the hate some have for him.
I don't think Kubiak was overly conservative. I think he made calls we aren't used to based on Case's strengths. They are much different than Schaub's because they include a strong arm, mobility and a desire to remain upright instead of assuming the fetal position at the slightest hint of pressure. That explains why the play calls were different.
The reason they didn't call more screens or draws is because Tate was/is very banged up (broken ribs?) and Foster was out with a hammy. WR screens can very easily become a pick 6 in tight man coverage, like KC played all day.
Wade/players aren't doing a very good job of disguising coverages/blitzes. The D, as a whole, are pretty bad right now. There appears to be no option but Watt for a consistent pass rush and the constant blitzing is leaving gaping holes for RB's that can reach the 2nd level.
Ed Reed needs a clipboard in his hand and a ball cap on his head. If we're going to pay him for his experience, let it be by going over film and sideline picks with Keo(I can't believe I typed that) and DJ. Reed is a complete liability on the field.
Marciano should be ran out of Texas on a rail. He's outlived his contributions by a decade or so. The towel boy could do as much as he's doing.
