It didn't. More importantly, we got a clear indication Kubes learned his lesson when we got a miraculous second chance, faking the run and throwing to Casey for a huge gain.
Like most things in the NFL, there are good and bad aspects to Kubiak. He showed his bad side today, no doubt, but he also displayed the single most important thing a person in his position can show: the ability to learn from a mistake.
Kubiak definitely figured he better grow some balls on the final winning possession we had.
He just drags **** out to the last second, he waits too long to adjust.
People defending him are hilarious. We lose the Jags game AND this game, they'd be right here bitching WITH us.
But hey, wins somehow erase problem areas. Until you start losing those games, of course. Everybody feels like guys get a pass when we win the nail biters.
I remove the W or the L from it and just say "Was it avoidable? Yes. But we have always expressed doubts about Kubiak in these same moments."
Win was good, but come on...if we lose those games nobody here would be this gracious right now.
