It's only Monday morning but I think ckhouston's next nicknames(post-"kiddo" above) for Cak are going to be either "braugh" or "coolguy." Could be wrong..just saying.

Default Re: Jaws gives breakdown on Schaub (AFC South Blog)

I don't think that they have been a run-first team at all. I honestly can't remember the specific games last season, but there was a loss or two in which many of us thought "Why the heck is Foster watching the game from the sideline while Gary is stubbornly sticking with a weak passing offense?"

I agree with those who think that Gary will pass first if at all possible.

Yeah it matters. Especially when you have the most of the same staff and personnel from those previous years, son.

EDIT: And Kubiak preached on, ad naseum, about how he wants to use the run to open up the pass, even in the years (2009, 2007, etc etc) where we had no run game. It drove most of us crazy when he said crap like that and Schaub was putting up 300 yard games all the time.

Yep...

And a lot of the defensive players reads in the front 7 are based on what the O-line is doing as well...Especially the D-line and OLB's...

Keeping that backside DE guessing is very important to the stretch run and PA bootleg...

Somebody asked, "What are we, right now?". Well, Right Now, with Shaub back in the fold, we are more of a passing team with a really good run game. Last year, before Shaub went down, we were a passing team with a really good run game. When TJ started, we were a running team, who sometimes passed it with buttholes clinched. Why do people argue just for arguments sake when you could look stats up? Come on guys, we all root for the same team.

I seem to recall he made the run work well enough to beat Indy/Manning with Dayne as our "feature back" and HWWNBN under center.

Bottom Line: Kubiak will go with whatever works.

It was so weird. We pounded the snot out of the Colts in that game. And then a few weeks later, Larry Johnson and the Chiefs couldn't. Of course, that was the year Herm Edwards broke Larry Johnson by feeding him the ball too much, but still. I expected the Chiefs to beat the Colts in that game.

Yes it does. It shows a pattern of consistency under a regime. One season is determined by a lot of circumstances as to how an offense schemes and operates. DIfferent factors like injuries can change those variables throughout a season. Previous season statistics give us factual data to go off in order to draw a proper conclusion as to what this offense is and how it has operated under Kubiak. INfantry Cak provided some of that data and it definitely showed a pattern.

One of the biggest factors that I haven't heard anyone mention was that the Texans became more run oriented, because of Yates playing. He was a 5th round rookie thrown into the fire. Kubiak made the offense much more run oriented when that happened and rightfully so. The best WR Yates had at the time was Owen Daniels as well. They had to go more run oriented due to what the personal was on the team that was able to suit up. Since you keep wanting to talk about the "present and the future" going forward, this offense will be what it is able to be based on what QB is out there. If Yates has to play, than this offense will likely be very run oriented again. If Schaub is out there, than this offense becomes a balanced offense with a lot more passing involved. Why wouldn't they? Schaub is a top 10 QB that has proven that he can lead the league in passing yards.

Agreed and the stats speak for themselves, not arguing that. But what team was on the field then? Now Kubes knows his defense can stop the other team, so he doesnt have to hang 30+ on the board to have a chance every game. He has the best one two punch in the game IMO at RB, so if you can ... why wouldnt you run the ball, eat the clock, stuff the opponent, win the game ... everytime. Will there be huge passing plays? Sure because they will be open, but I believe you will see a focus to a ground and pound style offense that takes the pressure off the QB to have to win in the clutch. Kubes has made the mistake in the past of letting Matt throw in situations that he cost us the game when we could have just ran and ate up the clock. I think Gary is smart enough to learn from his mistakes.

We don't agree much but I think you're spot on here. + You know the difference between 'then' and 'than'.

So you go with a few passes right off the bat...because they're anticipating Foster.


Then the run game. Then the play action. Then AJ or OD. And soon, the defense doesn't know what to defend.
teams must be kicking themselves for not noticing this complex, devious plan by kubiak during their film study every wk

Gary is a west coast coach, we are not going to be a ground and pound type of team
