Pretty strong answer I suppose. Assuming Kubiak is fired at the end of the season, are you going to want Mcnair to give a shorter leash to the next HC that gets hired after seeing how the unconditional patience in Kubiak backfired? I know that I will. I was with Kubiak though, especially after seeing what happened with Capers. After the Capers debacle I never understood why people wanted Kubiak to have all of this extra time that other coaches never seem to get. I really hopes this franchise learns from babying and coddling their coaches going forward.
