Just like Kubiak was responsible for the defensive woes with Frank Bush and company, but has zero to do with our defense this year or last.
I'm not saying all is forgiven, please understand that. I'm saying that win or lose, Kubiak deserves both credit and blame, but not all of it in either case.
In his first two or three seasons here as HC, I was able to give him a pass on days when things fell apart.
Seeing as how he's well into his tenure as a HC now, no. When the team looks flat, slow, uninterested in focusing and doing consistently good work...that's 100% "on Kubiak."
Granted, the team never freaked out today. So he obviously has them coached up overall, it's just the small details that get me pissed off at him.
