After listening to Kubiak's postgame interview, it sounds as if we will all have to "work through this thing" with Schaub.

Pick 6 - 4
Accountability - 0

I just noticed that Bill Paxton would be dead on if Hollywood ever makes the Gary Kubiak Story. John McClain could be played by Shamu the whale.

Default Re: Accountability

I posted something similar in another thread but it can go here as well. I view the media as an extension of the fans, they get access to the team and get to ask questions of the team that we all wish we could be asking. Why is our media soft on the team? Why are they settling for the same old "It's on me" or "I didn't call a good play or put the player in a position to succeed" excuses and not asking a hard follow up question like Why? If this were New York, Boston, Philly, etc... the media would be ripping this team and asking the hard nasty questions that fans want answered. The media is the fans version of accountability to the team.

To what effect? Is Eli with his 12 INTs about to be benched? Is Tom Coughlin about to be fired? Asking hard nasty questions just receives another round of coach speak not more accountability.

I'd say it's favoritism, not accountability.

Well, I happen to be in NYC right now. Trust me, no one here gives a rat's ass about Eli winning 2 Super Bowls. The Giants are now 0-4, and it's what have you done for me lately, and that's all anyone cares about.

Agreed. But no one here is giving Eli that kinda grief, mainly because we don't care.

Eli has had some great games, we(down here in Texas) believe he's the best option they have right now.

If we were able to step back & look at our situation it's possible that we can see the same thing here. Yates/Keenum aren't going to get in the game unless Schaub gets hurt. Matt is our starting QB, much to our chagrin.

The frustrating part, is that few of us had the confidence in Schaub that Gary has had to begin with. We understand if Schaub's play drops below a certain level, he'd get pulled. It baffles us, even me (a guy who doesn't care for Schaub but believed he is good enough to win a Championship with this team), that we haven't seen that level yet.

You are correct that racist doesn't apply. Gary hand picked Frank Bush and Rick Smith as his key people...so I think racist is kinda not even close to accurate.

well someone can still be racist if he favors black people over white, but I don't think this is the case...

Yeah, that's it. Kubiak favors black people over white. He named his sons Kxxx, Kxxx, & Kxxx, & that's why he's more lenient to Schaub than he is to Ben Tate.

With your first post I wasn't sure if you were sarcastic or not, then all sorts of stuff came out about kubiak being so biased.

I guess I never noticed because I'm not even considering the possibility of someone being racist in such an environment.

And now I don't get if you are sarcastic again

it is 3AM over here, in my defense.

This said, I really hope that Kubiak isn't racist...

Your hatred of Kubiak & Schaub makes it difficult to take you seriously. You come off as an emotionally distraught, teenage groupie.
