And last year, Wade brought that you-don't-know-what's-coming philosphy to our defense.

It's a beautiful thing boys & girls.

now excuse me, I need to whip up some more Koolaid



Man I do not fear Ravens like some do. That defense is getting up there and Suggs being gone this year will kill them.

Not at all .... Was more pointed at a few specific people. You and Tex werent among those , I even said as much to Tex in another thread a week or two ago.

As many times as we've heard Gary say "its on me" .... How many losses can we really attribute directly to his making mistakes in game ?

We've seen what this staff can do with talent to work with .... we kinda have to take that 50-49 record with a grain of salt .... Taking over that 2-14 team and going 6-10 with it , I have to wonder if they didnt overachieve.


The 2010 6-10 .... Ugh. That team was snakebit .... Several heartbreaking losses.

In the late part of the game if we have a lead, we will pound the rock and eat up the clock. But if you sell out on the run, we'll still throw it to keep you on your heels.

The only thing we have to worry about is penalties and turnovers. If we eliminate those, we'll do well.

As to your first point, you have strongest running game in the NFL and the best 1-2 RB tandem maybe in league history. Why WOULDN'T you run it with a large lead? Every incomplete pass gives the behind team an extra 40 seconds. 40 seconds is good for 5-6 passing plays - easily enough for a TD drive. Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I was wondering why the hell they didn't run it MORE when they were up by 20.
He dropped around 5 passes, Derek. Or more. Big drops, drops that would have moved the chains by 10, 15 yards. It was amazing how many easy passes he dropped.

He broke lazy on an out pattern at the goal line...a crisper, faster break (like a Reggie Wayne runs) and it would've been a TD. Didn't try to drag a foot on the back-of-EZ catch. All around, he was sloppy. Absurdly talented, but no focus...no sense of urgency.

Shave your back dude, that's disgusting.

I wish this thread had been a poll. I'd love to see how many fans thought Gary turtled up in that game.

I thought it was an extremely exciting game, both halfs. Ball being thrown around everywhere, QBs getting blown up, Kj De-Cleating Mofos... KDub going deep...

luv'ds it.

Because in 3rd quarter you should not be focusing on running out the clock but scoring and defending. QBs like Peyton can come back on you. Wait a second. IIRC Peyton did come back on us. That game was a prime example to go full throttle until at least 1/2 thru fourth quarter.

Reminds me of college basketball dribbling forever to run clock out with 20 minutes to play. Incomplete passes stop the clock BUT completed passes put you closer to points. No coach calls up a pass thinking it will be incomplete.

Default Re: Kubiak is who he is

I remember posting this thread back in September. It's interesting, because after watching the Begnals game, some of his play calls make more sense.

The problem is Kubiak doesn't adjust for being down. If he isn't playing with the lead, the style isn't as effective.

While I would love to see that style from time to time as well, its important to remember that our head coach is Gary Kubiak. Thats not his style. He plays for a lead and then plays to protect that lead.

There are arguments to be made on both sides of this idea -- whether its better to keep your food on the gas pedal or better to eat the clock and "go turtle."
For me, it isn't an either/or argument. There are times that he should go turtle. There are times he should press the advantage. My complaint about Kubiak in this regard is that he's completely inflexible in this situation. When you're facing a team that can come back, you need to bury them. Other times, those teams' only chance to come back is a turnover, so you don't take any risk at all. Kubiak is just stuck on turtle no matter what. Sometimes it's right, sometimes not.

& I don't see that at all. We need to be able to run when everybody in the building knows we're going to run it. That's just good sound football.

If we can run the ball like we're supposed to, he'll hit them with the play action, or the bootleg & take a quick strike down field. That's the way he's always been.

This year, because of the new guys on the OL, we have not been able to run the ball in those situations. Kubiak (imo) being able to see more than two games down the schedule, understands how important it is that we are able to run it down their throats in that "protect the lead" situation.

If we get a lead on a team like the Bears, or the Patriots, or the Broncos, or the Bengals... who get turnovers in the passing game, we'll need to run it & have them sell out to stop it in order to win.

Running the ball will run out the clock. Them selling out to stop it is going to allow us to take those shots & score.... from anywhere on the field.

It's not secret, Gary plays the % plays and doesn't take risks. He's a career backup QB to John Elway, you would have thought he would have more of that fire in him but he doesn't.

In addition, how many times did we have the lead on a team that "could come back"

I can only think of two, Denver & Baltimore. Against Baltimore, we were up 29-3 at the half. Our first drive, we ran the ball once, but tried to pass twice. Once Matt was sacked, the other he threw an incomplete pass.

Baltimore scored, then we came out with a 13 yard pass to Andre, a 2 yard loss by Foster, & a 35 yard pass to KDub...

Sounds to me Kubiak is bent on scoring even though we have a 19 point lead, because the Ravens can come back on us.

Most of the other teams we've played, not so much. What better time to practice your run it down their throats offense?
