The coaches job is to put the players in a situation to suceed. He did that today for the most part. The players failed to execute on those crutial plays.
AJ drops a gimmie that Schaub actually put on target.
Schaub throws an INT .... when Casey was wide open.
Schaubs other INT was underthrown ....
Schaub missed several reads , at least one that should have gone for a TD.
The OL got their asses handed to them .... By the Dolts BACKUPs on the DL.
Kubiak is just the easy target ....
Why isnt anyone complaining about Wade's D giving up big plays or #80 droping the easiest TD he's had since pop warner ball.
All these are valid points...however, it always comes back to the head coach, and to a lesser extent, the QB. Yes, these other players didn't do their jobs, but Kubiak is ultimately responsible for them being out there, and Schaub, as the QB, is the default leader. If the players don't perform, it's on them to an extent, but ultimately, it comes back to the head coach, fair or not. Until Kubiak takes them far in the playoffs or to the Super Bowl, his ability will always be questioned, based on his history with the team. And, unfortunately, that history says he is a head coach who is six games over .500 in his career- not bad by any stretch, but not great.
