I went back and forth on that idea back in the off-season and leading up to camp, as well. The "what if" game.
It seems like a better shot at getting to, and winning, a SB. And right now, it looks like we messed up.
But even back then, I had this feeling that (a) He would never pan out here for Kubiak with the way Gary does things, (b) what else would we have had to cut in order to fit him in under the cap here? and (c) what if he has a bad year and it was a bad move, a "reach", and then what if he had a great year here but then next year he gets carted off the field and is done forever.
Three major issues that just couldn't be overcome.
