I have been pretty critical of Kubiak, especially after last game, and have been of the opinion that he is not the guy to take this team to the next level. I think he'll get to the end of this season to prove his worth. After a game like today when this team played with so much heart, I just can't figure out why we appeared to come out so flat last week...in a home opener. I try not to take too much from press conferences, but I do like what I saw and heard from Kubiak after the post-game. First, the guy did not look like the coach of a winning team - he looked beat down and sounded extremely frustrated about the inconsistency of the team. The one thing he kept coming back to was how inconsistent the team was as a whole. He deflected any inferences that this would be a turn around game for the team or any player individually - repeatedly saying that this was just one game. Like Kubes said himself last week, the only thing that matters is what happens on Sunday. None of this makes a difference if we don't show it on the field - but it is clear that Kubiak gets this. He knows that this team can't win with the defensive break downs. He knows that the offense is going to have issues in the long run if we can't get the running game going. He knows that he has to get it fixed, and in a hurry, if he is going to keep his job. The next two games are critical. This win means nothing if we can't beat teams we should beat at home. I think Kubiak is going to do everything he can to keep this team focused on its issues and not rest on this victory. If he can't, we will know that he isn't the guy.
