Just thought I would post my ideas about this team before this game... just because. I was disappointed as many of you were with our HC after our 2006 season. I knew then, that he was not ready for the job at hand after watching what had transpired that season. It's not that I thought he wasn't ready to be a head coach in this league, I thought he was not ready to take this team from where we were to where we wanted to go. Taking that into consideration, I think he's done a remarkable job. We weren't an expansion team in 2006. We were a failed expansion team, & IMHO we needed a Holmgren, Parcells, a Shanahan, or maybe a Cowher at that time. 4 years later, we are a handful of plays away from competing with the elite teams in the NFL. & that's the way I expect this game to go. I would be shocked, & sorely disappointed if we get blown out the way the Titans & Jags did. & I would have to admit I'm wrong about the state of this franchise if we are. From where we are now, I believe Kubiak is the right man for the job. To take us from where we are now, to the Super Bowl, there is no doubt, in my mind, that Kubiak can get that job done. If we make it to the play-offs this season, I think we'll see that. Not that we'll get to the Super Bowl, but I'd bet we make it to the AFC Championship game & compete well with whoever is there. I don't by any means believe Kubiak is the only guy who can get us there. If McNair decides we need to move on, I can respect that... & unless he screws the pooch on his next selection, I believe that coach has an inside track to being very successful his first year here. I do however feel that Kubiak built this, & he should at least get next year to prove he deserves to stay. This is where we should have been when he got here. He got us here. To me, it's only fair. Again, I don't care if he's here or not... I care more about this team. I just think it would be the right thing to do.
