The Ray Rhodes hiring, combined with the Kubiak's tone recently regarding the defense and the fact that Richard Smith wasn't Kubes' first choice all point to the fact that an in-house change will happen during the season if things don't go well. If the defense looks like it does now once the season gets going Richard won't survive the Bye week, IMO.
Being firmly in the "get rid of Richard Smith" camp, I'm still all for waiting for the season to start to see how we really play. If there is any truth to this "vanilla schemes" in preseason stuff, maybe when we play Pittsburg we'll see a different defense. I hope so. We might not have the best set of defensive players in the league, but we do have a LOT of talent on the defense.
