He doesn't need to continue to be loyal to the player whose mistakes, if he is allowed to continue, will endanger Kubiak's employment.
Gary Kubiak and Marvin Lewis: Probably the only two head coaches in the NFL that have 100 % job security. They don't have to win in the playoffs. Heck, Marvin Lewis has done worse the past few years than Kubiak losing to the Texans in the wild-card game. But neither head coach will be fired.
