Re: Y'all like to blame Kubiak, but 3rd and 23!
All four phases (offense, defense, ST, coaches) are in a slump right now. There is plenty of blame to be spread on both coaches and players.
No one aspect is losing these games. It's a collective effort to see a team consistently meltdown like this, and we've seen it in games and seasons before in this city.
Losing Cushing and having very lame seasons by many other defenders have really had a negative impact on this defense and revealed some philosophical deficiencies in Wade's system. He's not the genius we had hoped. Still a good DC when he's got an offense scoring points and the players to run his D, but there is clearly a breakdown in his system and scheme when they give up a 3rd & 23 for a friggin' TD in a "must win" game.
