this is really where we branch off, as i've got (almost) full confidence in kubiak. dude took tj yates to the second round of the playoffs last year and has the best record in football this year. granted, we at times play down to our competition, we will most certainly be trying to secure home field advantage in front of the home crowd. i also dont think kubiak's post-patriots speech has worn off, especially with the lasers coming from his eyes in the second half ... our guys likely still have a bit of monday night redemption on their minds.

So what's important? If you're Gary Kubiak, what do you need to see?

For me, it's the run blocking. I think he'll take notes the Vikings game, if everyone is doing what they're supposed to be doing, they'll get to sit early in week 17. But I think Newton & Jones will play longer than most starters. There is a lot of backside stuff they need to work on.

We're a three TE team with only two TEs on the roster. I think we're going to see a lot of them.

I also want to see the LBs play all game. Inside, outside, I don't care if you've got LB in your position, you're playing a lot.

We're a three safety team, with four of them on the roster. I think we see a lot of Glover/Manning with Keo & Demps playing a lot of the game (expect this to be a high scoring game).

I hope we don't see Andre, Arian, or Schaub for more than a series or two.

I have never understood this mentality that the team's successes are on the team (they'd perform the same whoever was head coaching) and the team's failures are on Kubiak (who DOES have shortcomings, everyone does).

31 teams do not win the Super Bowl every year.

This team isn't playing well yet we're 12-2 right now.

But if we don't win it this year, it's Kubiak's fault. We're just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I know you're doing a good job, dropping some of your rhetoric because we're 12-2.

But isn't every team waiting for the other shoe to drop? I mean I'm sure Ravens & Falcons fans are waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Are you ok with being one of those 31 teams?

I'm not. At least I'd rather not be.

Being like 31 other teams shouldn't be the goal. Being the one and only team at the top of the hill is what this stuff is all about. That's why I watch. That's what I root for.

I don't think anyone is going to stop being a fan if we don't win it all. But man, I'm not ok with not winning a superbowl. That would suck. Just like it's sucked every other year.

Just thought I'd throw this out there. It was in the second half of the game, on Indy's second TD drive. Much of that series, I saw Mitchell, Cody, & Crick playing on our defensive line. I've never seen that before.


A three man front has always been Crick plus two of the starters.

Maybe Kubiak is already starting to work in some rest for the players.

That wasn't the point.

I'm talking about this "other shoe to drop" thing we've got going on here. I don't know if Kubiak is a Super Bowl winning coach or not, but I know there isn't anything we can do about that but wait & find out.

You know this team hasn't played good football for quite some time now, but they're winning, doesn't the coach have something to do with that? He may not be getting it done the way we want him to, but he is delivering the results we want. Ws....

I expect a Super Bowl. I won't be happy if we don't win it. But I'm not going to be upset about it until we lose it.

Another thing Rey,


I'm primarily talking to two people who are upset that we're going to lose the Vikings game.

We haven't played it & there's no reason to believe we're going to lose it other than the fact that Kubiak & Tj Yates didn't win the final two games of last season.

Yeah, this "in spite of" sh!t drives me absolutely f'king nuts.

I have said this before, and I will say it now, and I will continue to say it, because I absolutely believe it. There are people here who actually seriously believe, that if this team wins a Super Bowl, they will say they won it "in spite of Kubiak".

To be fair, chances are we won't win a Super Bowl this year. That's just reality. Those people will be here to tell you we lost because of Gary. & we might, I don't know.

But hopefully they'll wait till we lose the Super Bowl.

You gotta feel sorry for them. I mean they were quiet & respectful for 6 weeks before they told us, "I told ya so!!" before we got stomped by the Packers. Then they had to wait another 5 weeks to tell us how bad we are & that the Jags exposed us. Then it was another three weeks before they could come back with the, "I told you so!!" when we lost against New England.

This has been a very rough season for them.
