People are calling in on talk shows, writing to the newspaper, posting on blogs and message boards, all complaining about Kubiak's "stubbornness" in his playcalling, in that he continues to stick with running the ball, even though it's been unsuccessful so far. I've heard Kubes state numerous times in his press conferences and interviews, that if he were to abandon the running game and "throw the ball 50 times, I'm going my quarterback hurt." Now, I know there are excuses for everything, but since we all know that the offensive line isn't that good, especially after losing McKinney, my question is that if he sincerely feels that he would put his quarterback in more danger, why is his reason for not giving up on the running game so hard to accept? Seems like a pretty legitimate reason, if you ask me. Now, I know that Green Bay and Favre, and Philadephia and McNabb, each throw the ball way more than they run, or in other words "throw the ball to set up the run", but they each have much better offensive lines that are capable of handling the pass protection load. But with this team's offensive line, that's not an option.
