    I think part of our problem in the Redzone on both offense and defense is because we are slow/not quick.

    Our LBs can't keep up with players, plus poor execution. Going to be really bad with Cushing out.
    Our WRs can't get open quickly. We don't have a Welker type of receiver.
    On offense it could also have been MS. Hope to see more of CK in redzone so a better comparison can be made.
    The again it could be just POOR play calling/coaching, but I think player quickness is a factor.
    Just my opinion.

    We have a very slow footed team. Not blessed with an over abundance of team speed. We prioritize size and run blocking at WR. Not a lot of room for smaller quick guys. We like system TE's who are neither physically imposing nor athletic freaks. We like smaller, quicker offensive linemen. All a recipe for struggling in the red zone. Our OLB's are converted DE's so they don't operate well in space. Smaller faster d linemen make it easier for a big physical oline to lock up in tighter spaces. Just a team built with a flaw. Case was in the redzone once I believe so tough to judge. Didn't have a RB and had Gary calling his plays so we'll see.

    Edit: Oh, and a noodle arm qb so nonathletic he makes Peyton Manning look like Mike Vick his rookie year.

    Slow. Steady. What we. Need as head. Coach. Is the Shat.

    Capt Kirk will fix it.

    Ed Reed is just as slow as Gary Kubiak's brain...
