Default Re: Kubiak sticking with Schaub - still named starter

We brought in another talented back at the same time as Arian, Jeremiah Johnson out of Oregon. Just as talented as Arian, different, but just as talented. He threw away his opportunity. Arian put in the work.



We ran out of LBs & needed the roster spot. Trindon wasn't doing us any good on our roster anyway.

Jacoby..... I think Kubiak made a bad decision. But I'm in the minority on this board. I would have taken Jacoby's game breaking speed & ability to make plays over Walter's dependability & blocking ability.




That's on Wade. But to be fair, we cut Demps twice. Once before Wade, & once after Wade.



What I know is that we've won back to back division titles, 10+ games two seasons running, & a play-off game each of the last two years. Sure we're making mistakes, making bad moves, etc.... but we're making a bunch of good ones too.



Real life is that 32 teams passed on Case Keenum 7 times. 3 teams decided to add Ryan Lindley, B.J. Coleman, & Chandler Harnish to their program in lieu of Case Keenum. Two of which probably know a good QB when they see one, Green Bay & Indy.

Gary Kubiak thought enough of the dwarf to add him to our squad & put him on the roster for 2013. Real life is that you fanbois should be greatful that he's got a job in the first place. & the man responsible will put him in the game when he's ready. Real life is that if Keenum is not ready after Matt Schaub has thrown 9 INTs in 5 games, he's not ready.

Tim Jamison is an UDFA, so is Arian. Most people on this board & national media (other folks whose livelihood isn't tied to the decisions they say Kubiak should make) said we should cut Kareem. Briesel was undrafted, We got Myers for a 6th round pick, but drafted Centers in the 3rd & 4th round who couldn't get him off the field. Derek Newton was a sixth round pick, Ryan Harris has been here longer. We cut Antonio Caldwell to keep Ben Jones & Brandon Brooks. Joe Mays takes more snaps than Darryl Sharpton or Tim Dobbins. Hopkins is above Martin, Jean, & Posey.

Your reasoning doesn't fit with real life.
Good response. I said something similar, but you put it better. I'm sure he'll still stand by his statements.
