We do know Shanahan is a very strong willed guy who is unlikely to have just deferred to whatever Kubiak wanted. Maybe we should credit the Texans' DL coach for picking Watt.
I would expect free agents and draft picks to work in different silos. I would also expect to have an accomplished OC/QB coach have most of the input in the free agent recommendation.
Is there no accountability around Kubiak's career? Rhetorical question of course.
