We're 2-7. Even if we beat Oakland & Jacksonville, we'll be 4-7. There will not be an appropriate time for Kubiak to say he is satisfied with anything on this team unless the rest of the AFC chokes & we sneak into the play-offs at 9-7.
He can't say that he's happy with his QB..... he's been saying that for 6 years & you see where that's got us. He can't say he's happy with his OL, Special Teams, or defense. Or his coaching staff, or anything.
This is one huge disappointment.
You've just got to know that Kubiak isn't going to put Schaub in the game. There's no reason for it. He's not going to say it this year, but Case Keenum has been our starting QB since KC & he'll be treated like it. He's going to get some slack, he'll be allowed to make mistakes, he's not going to get benched, even if he has a bad game.
But Rick Smith is not going to rush to sign him to an extension with $60M guaranteed, we're not going to cut Schaub & Gary will not announce Case is our "starting QB" for the remainder of the season.
