But yeah, Kubiak HAD to let Holliday join the 53 based on the preseason fireworks and Holliday promptly screwed it up.
Kubiak had no real personal ties to the guy. It was a Coach Joe project all the way. Had we not needed the extra roster spot, Holliday survives another week here. With how Forsett was returning the kickoff last Monday night...it sort of was a foreshadowing of what Kubiak ended up doing today.
Kubes needed the extra spot AND it was an easy and clean way to get rid of Holliday at the same time.
This is how rumors get started. I'm interested to see if this is simply your speculation stated as fact, or if you have any sort of quote or proof that this is/was, indeed, Kubiak's mentality regarding Holliday.
