Does this trace to Kubiak's inability to adjust on the fly? Kubiak scripts the first 15 plays. Perhaps he is sufficiently predictable that the opposing DC's can present fronts and coverages that confuse the offense, Schaub in particular. The comments from Eric Winston in the chronicle today made me think that perhaps this is the issue. Can Kubiak ever be the guy to coach from the seat of his pants, to audible into plays based on what he is seeing in front of him, rather than stick to his script mindlessly, as we get behind in the first quarter? Perhaps James Casey is the perfect anecdote to this problem. His presence adds a new wrinkle and forces the other team to see something new.
