Cannot make all the throws, not sure about vision, potentially good feet for the playbook. My assessment is incomplete, but do not believe he is a starting QB in the NFL.

QB is extremely important in a Kubiak offense, consequently, he has folks on this roster who he thinks can help this team win his way. I am 100% that he is confident in what he is looking for, which does not give me confidence in a Super Bowl appearance with him at the helm.

Griese, Plummer, Carr, Schaub, and Yates are what he should be measured on. He shouldn't get credit for Young or Elway in an objective historical view on his performance as a QB guru.

Kubiak took us to the playoffs, and has done his job. We have reached the limits of his skill set, and need to move on. He is not the only player's coach, QB guru, model citizen, "local" boy, etc, that could coach this team tomorrow or in the future.

No more run rate business McNair, give us a head coach/GM who can identify big opportunities and close them.
Great post. I especially like the part where you bring up the "real" historical perspective of what Kubiak has done with QB's and how inaccurate this idea of him being a "QB Guru" is and always has been. He has nothing to stand on to suggest that. Kubiak is way to controlling in my eyes from what I can see as an observer that isn't actually on the team. But a huge part of my fear of getting a new QB (Which is what I want) is to have to go through the treads of QB's that Kubiak would likely bring in here. I don't think he has a real solid history of finding great QB's in this league, and my first guess is that Kubiak would probably go after another guy that is very similar to Schaub. People wanting some new Russell Wilson type of guy is something I don't see Kubiak doing. I could be wrong if he ever does make a serious push towards going after a new QB, but that is yet to be seen.
