i'll rail for days on kubiak's stubbornness and inflexibility when it comes to game management and at times player loyalty. but the best FRANCHISES (not teams, franchises), are those that do exactly what we're doing by sticking with kubiak ... they've just had a couple decades' head start. the constant losers are those with consistant turnover at key positions, free agents, and coaches - even if they sneak in a great season or two.
andre hasnt bolted, nor daniels, nor ryans. we do very well to keep our own under kubiak.
It's a great point. I think Kubiak has had some serious growing pains. Kubiak is outsmarting himself with a lot of his playcalling. Just stick with what works.
We've built a franchise. To bring someone in would likely cause a lot of turnover to get the players to fit the mold. Kubiak has to stop making rookie headcoaching mistakes. He knows what works, just keep doing it.
