I don't think Kubiak is afraid to give player's chances. If he was stubborn, we'd probably still be seeing Steve Slaton with Arian on the bench. We'd still have KW as the #2, with Hopkins on some other team.
I remember all of the back up QBs that the fans wanted to play ahead of the starter. When it came time for them to shine, in regular season, they fell apart. The only thing wrong with Schaub is that he throws behind the reciever a lot of times.
