So how did a thread about the defense turn into another Kubiak bashing thread? When the defense does good, Wade gets ALL the credit. When the defense does bad, somehow Kubiak gets the blame still?
I do not perceive any "Kubiak bashing" in this thread. I do see critical analysis. Feel free to agree or disagree, but conversation is what a forum is all about.
As far as Kubiak being mentioned in a defensive thread, he's still the head coach of this football team. Wade answers to Gary, so any and all failure of any given aspect of this team ultimately lands on Gary as the head coach.
There is an attitude that permeates this organization. Like just about every football team, the head coach's perspectives and philosophy resonate throughout all aspects of the team. The attitude of this head coach appears to be more reactive than proactive. There should not be a problem in talking about this stuff as fans. Nobody is advocating that McNair fire Kubiak. It's just conversation.
