I am left somewhat in the dark over what happened at the end of the 1st half.
He plays not to lose, that's nothing new with Kubiak, he's not a winner, he's not the guy you want in a dark alley with you late at night. He already concedes defeat in his body language and his play calling.

On the road, young QB, against a good defense, only down 4, and we get the ball first in the 2nd half... with less than a minute left. Considering those circumstances, I'm ok with the call.
Hmm. What's this? Common sense? On TT? I'm gobsmacked!

I was semi-ok with the first running play to see what happens considering the situation and a young buck in his first start in a tough environment. That play gained good yardage, I think 8 yards. At that point, I wanted to immediately see hurry up. Instead they strolled around like they were taking a walk in the park and ran the ball again. First down. THEN he tries to run hurry up.

It's just the same old Kubes. He has a loser's mentality. He is scared his players might make a mistake, and that mentality rubs off on the whole team. It's just turtle mode Kubiak style.

At some point you have to try anything to win games, even if it is a little risky. That point is when you are 2-4, have lost 4 in a row, and needed this win to hold on to any chance of making the playoffs.

Our coach is a gutless vagina, of that there is no doubt.

In game adjustment have always been Kubiaks biggest weakness. Saying that I can see why Kubiak didn't go no huddle. One week of preparations for a first time starter. That's a lot of pressure already on Keenams shoulders. Still there were plenty of other options less challenging for a newbie QB that could of helped slow down the pressure. Going to a two TE set or moving the pocket around for example. But alas we have a coach that's incapable of countering the other coaches moves. While most nfl coaches are playing chess, Kubiak is playing checkers.
