Link: "Final Exam" Some thoughts: 1. Very interesting to see how hands on Kube is on for this. For me at least, I have a hard time picturing Capers doing this. 2. Rank speculation alert: A lot of people have been saying that the new coaching staff is betting their careers that Carr can be the man. You know, the potential is there, but you are not quite sure if the Oline is as bad as it was or if Carr just made it look worse. Anyhow, Kubiak has now worked with both Carr and VY. Hands on. Coaching them. Seeing what they can do. Watched tape on both of them. I am thinking that maybe part of this process is just making sure in his gut that he is picking the right guy to lead the team. I mean, as long as you have an opportunity to work out both, why not do it, especially if the long term success on your team is based on the coachability and ability of your QB. VY has been described as a quality athlete who already has ability but has the potential for a ginormous upside. People's opinions are all over the place. (Kind of like the opinions of Carr, BTW) VY is exactly the sort of guy you want to be able to judge for yourself, to put through your own workout. And if VY ends up with the Titanhicks, maybe Kubiak gets a sense of what VY is good at and maybe not as good at. It is funny reading about Kubiak starting at Denver--getting drafted, being excited, and then finding out that they drafted ELWAY. And then getting into camp, seeing him play and wondering if would ever have a chance to stay in the NFL. I think Kubiak has an appreciation of great QB play and just wants to make sure that he is attaching his career to the right horse. That when opinions of Carr and VY are all over the place, at some point, you want to judge with your own eyes. And see how both interact with you. Personally, I wouldn't feel comfortable risking my career on the "conventional wisdom" without testing stuff out myself for something this important. (BTW, I am not writing this post as fodder for ugly VY posts or ugly RB posts--it is just what I am thinking is happening, but I don't know any better than anybody else. Though I will add, it probably will keep RB's people a little more honest in negotiations too).
