But if you truly don't think Kubiak will take us there, and you've said the goal is the Superbowl, why wouldn't you be calling for his firing? Otherwise, you're changing public opinion to...what?
Speaking for myself, I'm hoping Kubiak is the blind squirel that lucks into finding a nut one of these days. I'd be happy with a single acorn right now.
I think it's his job to lose. And there is no chance in hell that he's even on hot seat when we are going to the playoffs.

Yes, with Kubiak, it all starts at the top, and if this season crashes and burns in the end, he deserves as much criticism as everyone else. But if that happens, injuries will be the biggest reason. Nobody wants to talk about injuries, but they play a great deal in the outcome, and is the biggest reason why the defense is not as good as it was earlier. And the injuries will play a big part in the reevaluation after the season is over.
yep. I think Graham being gone last night really hurt. However, "next man up" only works when you actually have another player to step up.
But every team suffers from injuries. And that's right were better coaching and depth on the bench have a direct impact on games.
