Can he learn from it? Lets hope so but I guarantee you he is on a short leash after yesterday.
Not sure I can agree. With the game on the line, Kubiak called three very-low-percentage plays in a row and figured he was in Bullock's range. Those were calls designed to not have a chance at a turnover and included the high likelihood that the game would rest on the kicker.

Bullock was definitely in range, but of 3 "real" attempts, only the first on went through. One was a BAD shank, and the other hit the upright.

I like the guy, but I think the issue is upstairs. If I'm an opposing coach, it's worth every timeout I have to ice him at the moment.
