Did he have a choice on QB as opposed to O'brien?

"Worser"? WTF?

Everyone knows it's "Worserer"

Kubiak had a worse team. I don't think there's any question about that.

Were you watching the team when Kubiak took over? Just curious, because it's pretty clear that Kubiak walked into a total mess with absolutely zero talent.

In fact, one of the things that made this job so attractive last year was the level of talent that was already assembled.

I think Kubiak, but according to the stats they weren't too far apart. While the stats don't tell the entire story here they are:

2005: Scored 260 points (16.2/g), 26th of 32 in the NFL. Allowed 431 points (26.9/g), 32nd. Differential of -171 points (-10.7/g), 31st.

2013: Scored 276 points (17.2/g), 31st of 32 in the NFL. Allowed 428 points (26.8/g), 24th. Differential of -152 points (-9.5/g), 31st.

Kubiak.

DeAndre, Arian, Myers, Brooks, Ben Jones, Duane Brown, Cushing, Watt, Swearinger

Those guys are all better than the guys Kubiak had. I know many won't agree with me on Ben Jones, but I like him. Cushing, we're going to be talking about his injury, but I put his name on the list because I'm holding out hope.

I don't know that I can say either Jjo or Kjax is better than Dunta when Kubiak took over, but I think the combination of Kjax & Jjo is better than the combo Kubiak had (Aaron Glenn done left huh?).

Was Seth Payne still here? That might be the only position Kubiak had a better player.

I think Tj Yates was a better QB than Carr, but... I may be letting my emotions get the better of me there.

I try not to get upset at OB since he is a rookie headcoach, but Kubiak had to "evaluate" Carr for a season given the fact that maybe the owner didn't want to give up on Carr.

OB on the other hand picked a qb nobody in the league right now would settle for. I feel bad for Fitz because I think he's a great guy, but he's a terrible quarterback.

Plus, I think Kubiak only had one probowler to work with, while O'Brien has at least 3 to work with, Johnson, Arian and Watt.

Disclosure: I have a day off, trimming some "bushes" and plants; a gorgeous day outside.

There's a point, especially according to the quick responses.

How do you score your rookie HC according to the level of talent they inherited.
