McNair doesn't operate like that.
Kubiak is out of options.
Players-only meeting? Tried that. Didn't work.
Emotional speech from head coach? Tried that. Didn't work.
Meeting with team captains? Tried that. Didn't work.
Tougher practices? Tried that. Didn't work.
Kubiak is a poker player sitting at the table in Vegas with no cards in his hands. He has nothing.
Keenum starting is the act of a man desperate to keep his job.
As i've said in other threads, starting Keenum is in effect a hail mary to save this season...& by extetension, kubiak's job...the latter is what i absolutely do not want to happen...
& it's b/c of what i mention above I'm not any more siked about this game than i am normally or will be in the future...
