We've got a team that needs to learn how to win, how to take that game plan you saw Thursday & score 37 points against a completly inferior opponent like the Bucs or the Colts.
Kubiak has one more week to get her done, or it's one & done.
The bolded is where fans' expectations must be tempered by reality.
It's not 'doom and gloom' to recognize that our current talent level places this team in a precarious position, one that will most likely result in a three game losing streak going into the playoffs.
After the Falcons and Bengals games, it seemed like the collective talent and will of the team could overcome losing Schaub.
The last two games proves otherwise. I like Yates, but honestly, this would be a 6-8 win team if he was the starting QB from game 1. Now that defenses have tape on him, he's playing like a rookie QB thrown to the wolves.
