If Posey has earned Kubiak's trust, then he should be a significant upgrade from Walter moving forward.
I think the thing holding all these guys back & what's keeping Walter on the field, is that Kubiak expects these guys to act like professionals. Get to meetings on time, get to the weight room on time & work when you get there, don't go through the motions, participate in the WR meetings, demonstrate that you get it.
I'm pretty much the same way with the guys I work with. The new ones usually have experience from somewhere else & they always want to impress me with what they know, what they can do. I'm a maintenance electrician by the way. & while I do value their ability to diagnose & repair a piece of equipment, which they think makes them hot-shots, I also need to know they are going to do the other aspect of their job without me having to watch over them like a hawk. Battery maintenance, motor inspections, filter changes, lubrications, periodic inspection & overhauls of starters & breakers. That's what makes you a pro imo... make sure the **** don't break in the first place.
I'm sure Kubiak has things similar to that.
