Riiiight. Kubiak's definitely worked for all those teams.

Give the kid some credit where credit is due. Is he a world breaker? No, I don't think so. I think he's a solid back up who maybe could be a solid starter. He's not the next Tom Brady or anything. But let's see what he does next year. I was disappointed with his development, but I think he's a hard worker and has a chance to show a lot of improvement still.

But to devalue a play-off win cause you used one the best running backs in the NFL? Come on. If Tom Brady had Arian Foster they'd probably throw a bit less too.

He didn't.

Brink was in the original list.

This was the list of guys Kubiak DIDN'T draft.

That's no longer an excuse with RG3, Wilson, and Luck.

The fact that kubiak is high on him makes me feel even more confident that he sucks.

Kubiak is absolute trash when picking QBs:

Schaub
Orlovsky
Rosencopter
Beck
Grossman
Yates
Keenum

There's a trend here folks. I would absolutely love to take a shot at Geno Smith who will be the next randy moss in this draft (ridiculous personal character shots which in turn gets passed over which in turn creates a huge chip on his shoulder which in turn drives him to be a great player).

We get Geno Smith that is a threat to Schaub. It will push schaub. Schaub will finally start looking over his shoulder. Something that has never happened to schaub.

I would absolutely take a gamble on Geno Smith.
What???? He's signed a few backups and spent a few late round picks on qbs that didn't pan out?

Whether you are thrilled with schaub he's not a bust by NFL standards. Other than that he has spent late round picks looking for a diamond in the rough. Even if you consider Brady how many late round qbs pan out? Almost none. This is like saying you suck at math because you don't hit the lottery. Wake me up when he misses on a third round or better qb.

Default Re: Is there a problem with Yates?

Of the qbs you used as an example of rookie success how many are 5th round or later? Oh. OK. Wilson was a third rounder and he doesn't belong in the discussion with the other two. He wasn't asked to sling it. He barely threw for 3000 yards. They ran the ball and played great defense. Put Wilson on the colts and they win 5 games tops.

You could look at every team in the league and compile similar lists. You might note the vets we brought in didn't leave the Texans for the couch, they went on to other NFL teams.

Funny how Smith isn't involved in this rant.

Yeah but his list is even worse. You could compile a list of RBs too. But he won't do that. Schaub has won a lot of games and completed a lot of passes. Have we hit on a LT since brown? Haven't hit on an RB since Tate either. You have STARTERS in there and don't spend high picks unless you are replacing someone. Who has even ben available when we drafted that he would replace schaub with? Wilson? We are an 8 win team with him at QB.

Its either he's the best thing since sliced bread or he sucks , no sweet inbetween. I do not envy the job of an NFL coach or GM.

Haha I don't know why, but I imagined that in a really pathetic, weak voice. Brink was on my list of people Kubiak did draft, mind, but hey. If people expect all 6th, 7th rounder QBs to pan out like Tom Brady, they're gonna be really disappointed.

Schaub is a decent starter. It's possible to win SBs with less.
