And no that can't be said to be just good coaching unless you are also going to say Harbaugh just doesn't give a crap enough this year to bother getting good performance out of Flacco anymore.

That is a general comment, not a Kubiak comment.
I wouldn't be surprised if Kubiak has success in the future. Many times in sports a change in scenery does wonders for players and coaches. However, I don't think Kubiak could have done much with this team in the near future. This team, in my opinion, now has a losing mentality and a servere lack of discipline on the field. The institutional lack of accountability has caught up with this team.

I think it is far easier for a new coach to correct these traits than it is for the coach that brought the team to this state.
