I'm pretty sure the bar has been raised. I am not using anything as a crutch. You're suggesting that we should have parted ways with Kubiak a long time ago. I wouldn't have been surprised had he been fired myself. But he wasn't.

I'm just pointing out that there is no guarantee we would be better off had we fired him. Would you be happy if we swapped places with the Lions? Since 2006 our franchise went the way as their's did & their franchise went the way ours did?

I have a feeling you'd be upset with McNair for not being able to find the "right" coach & making it to the play offs once since 2006 & being one & done at that. Your argument would be that 3 teams hired a head coach in 2006 that took their teams to multiple division championships, past the wild card round, & two of those teams won Super Bowls, while Bob McNair baby steps his way to a 4-12 season. You'd be calling for Schwartz head after 4 years, 3 of which were losing seasons (where Kubiak has only had 2 losing season after 7).

Now you're complaining that we didn't get past the divisional round of the play offs. The bar has been raised.

Not at all, I'd have fired Kubiak after the 2010 season myself, but I understand why McNair didn't & I think his plan worked out better than mine would have.

I'm disappointed that we lost 3 of our last 4 games. I'm disappointed we didn't win home field advantage. I'm disappointed we didn't get past the divisional round. I'm disappointed we didn't win the Super Bowl. I'm shocked that coach Joe Marciano wasn't fired or resigned due to health issues. I'm scared, that we may have missed the best opportunities to win a Super Bowl (2011 & 2012) we'll ever have.

But I don't think it's time to blow it up & start all over, & I don't think Kubiak's or Schaub's better days are behind them. Next year is a whole new season & I'm anxiously looking forward to it.
