I saw on the news yesterday that Kubiak is going to be simplifying the defensive plays. He said that many of the players are just having to hard of a time understanding the defensive plays and felt that if he simplified the defensive plays that the players could understand it better and thus run the plays better. Today's practice was supposed to be lots of extra reps. on basic formations and assignments so that everyone would know their positions and responsibilities. Maybe those Safeties have been lining up as DT's and forgot where their supposed to be thus the reason they're playing so poorly. Now I know that football players aren't generally considered to be very intelligent but how hard is it to understand X and O. The D-line and LB's chase down and kill the man with the ball. Secondary players run with the WR and prevent him from catching the ball. This ain't NASA, it ain't rocket science.
