lost, and he has to bring in reserve players from the CFL.
First, I think all head coaches this side of Sean Payton or Belichick have
to deliver. Payton because he did the near impossible, made the Saints S/B champs, and Belichick because, love him or hate him, he produces year in/year out.
Second, let me understand something; you're saying that less is expected from Norv Turner (who's 2-4 Chargers were expected to win the AFC West going away this year) than from Kubiak who, as you guys delight in pointing out, does not yet have a winning record as a head coach.
You're saying Turner gets a free pass on a 2-4 record (did I mention he's 0-2 in his division?) because he couldn't replace TWO GUYS??
Yet Kubiak must produce even if he has to replace all 53? Is that what you just told us?
Didn't we lose our starting LT and two WRs at times this year? Oh, my bad, only other teams get to make excuses.
