I heard that blow-hard Dan Dierdorf say during the broadcast that Kubiak didn't allow defensive players to bat balls down during practice. If that is true, I'm kinda pissed off. I understand that sometimes, practice is just supposed to be to teach, learn and correct plays/players, but IMO not allowing a 'real game' situations to occur at practice kinda defeats the point of practicing as if it was a real game. I understand that I won't attribute all the problems this team has had to this, however, it kinda makes me wonder: What other things was Kubes and Co. doing that held us back? And for the people who are more optimistic, it's good that Wade came in here and was able to correct little things about the way that Kubiak does business to allow them to have a chance at being more successful in this league. What do y'all think?
