It's almost as if Kubiak sees Schaub as an extension of himself and is too proud to take himself out of a game he's been out of already since 1983.
To say he's not our best chance at getting to a SB is to say that there is something better available. Yates is a known quantity, not an improvement. Do we make the big
move for Josh Freeman (who apparently takes prescription amphetamines, presumably for ADD...explaining a lot about him). VY is available! Any takers? Didn't think so. What about a second shot for Matt Hot Tub? Or better still, why not hire Jamarcus Russell? He can just eat the opposing defenses. Or not. There's room for a Carr joke too, but even I'm not that morbid.
That leaves only Keenum as a semi-legitimate option if you pull Scahub, and that's a Hail Mary, a Hail Mary we don't need to throw 4 games into the season.
I do agree with the last part though, Schaub and Kubiak are a set...their wagons are hitched together. If Schaub is a failure, so is Kubiak. It makes sense that Kubiak wouldn't want to bench him. If he does, he's essntially waving the white flag on his era in Houston.
