What is remarkable (to me, at least) is that Kubiak even has this job after his first five seasons.
The entire team and subsequent results represent the head coach, not just stats from one side of the ball.
If the defense has been lousy, then it's a direct reflection of the head coach's inability to hire a defensive coach that can improve it.
And coaches can make all the difference. Case in point: Wade with the Texans and Harbaugh with the 49ers (among others).

Yep. But, at least the Texans Marketing Team put sprinkles on it!
