He also had a lot of maturity issues here in Houston. I think Baltimore is benefiting some from Kubiak's mentoring of Jacoby. But, once he muffed that punt in Baltimore his time in Houston was done.
I wish him nothing but the best and think he should have been the SB MVP.
Thanks for a well-written and thought-out reply.
