Yep. I can see that happening. It won't be as bad as Kris Brown in the later years (when he cost us multiple games) but I can see ST blowing a game for us this year at some point.

Well Holliday is gone, I wished they would of fired Joe Marciano and stayed with Trinton till atleast the bye. Trinton was not looking good at all but I wish him the best.

I was right there with you, my post below after the 2010 season.

Punt Distance 26th

Punt Return 29th

Field postion was terrible all year for both sides of the ball. Improving this will help our defense and offense.

Jones seems to be doing a reasonable job of directing his punts, he is probably our brightest spot on special teams. Our coverage isn't awful.

Our return game seems to be terri-bad and constantly giving up penalties.

Reviving this.

Special teams is once again...atrocious. Martin's a better returner than Holliday, but the blocks still aren't there.

And we still can't cover kickoffs. Get rid of Marciano. His time is over.

Firing Marciano would be like firing Chris Palmer two weeks into the 2005 season. It might make you feel good, but it won't substantially change a thing. The guy calling the shots keeps the guy employed. The guy calling the shots knows what the deficiencies are and has given his vote of confidence to Marciano.

Brahman's blocked punt and TD will be more than enough for the leadership to justify keeping him on.

I'm not a huge kubiak fan overall, but I thought this team could win in spite of his suspect play calling.

I don't think he takes advantage of the offensive talent he has.

The team can win in spite of him, as long as they're playing the Dolphins, Jags, and Titans of the league. They'll jump up and win a big one now and again, just like any team. But when the big moments come, he doesn't seem to have the instinct to make the right calls enough of the time. The pass to AJ a couple weeks back for the key first down to close the game out is the sort of thing a coach has to do sometimes. Kubiak doesn't do it often enough, but he puts himself in position to need to be able to do it more often.

And as you said above, the ST play has been bad for a while. Some have pointed out that Marciano never adjusted to the wedge being outlawed. I can't say I disagree with that. So it falls on Kubiak to make that evaluation every offseason and after every game and make adjustments as needed. So far, he's made the same adjustments he made with Richard Smith and Frank Bush. He's going to have to be dragged kicking and screaming into making the decision that has to be made. That's a crap head coach.

He also has a turnover with the Broncos. Boom or bust. I liked Keyshawn Martin today, and I haven't seen him muff a kick-off/punt recently.
