Expiring rookie contracts are only part of the reason.

There were people wanting to fire Kubiak after his first season because he didn't watch field goal attempts. There was a strong push (on the MBs) that wanted him gone after his second 8-8 season. They were tired of baby steps & felt we underachieved for the second year in a row. I think the pink soap started after his second 8-8 year.

They wanted him fired after his 9-7 year. Of course they wanted him fired after going 6-10 & felt pretty good it was going to happen. There was mourning & gnashing of teeth when McNair's decision was made public.

No, I'm not exagerating.

I have my concerns, but our questions should be answered next season.
