    I wanted to make this thread just so we can post stuff when we know it. Also so the fans who were at the game and didn't know can check in.

    All we know so far is he collapsed at the half, he was speaking, and went to the hospital. His family is with him, and he is conscious.

    Thoughts to Kubiak and his family. Never want this to happen to anyone.

    He was making a Case for him to stay as our Head Coach tonight with his play calling.

    Yep, no heart attack. The video looked like he was light headed like when you're napping on the coach and get up super fast and get light headed.....one may hunch down like he did to keep from passing out.

    My point is that it was not an all out TKO type of thing that you think when you hear "collapse"

    get well soon Kubes.

    Sucks that it happened and you could tell it really affected the team. For better or worse, the ship sticks with its captain and I respect Kubiak for that. Thoughts out to his family and I hope for a speedy recovery from whatever happened.

    I wonder if his appendix ruptured.

    That or Goodell poisoned him Justine he turned the lights out in the SB.

    My comments from the game thread below. Word coming out now that dehydration was a contributing factor....

    I want Kubiak gone but not like this (of course). I blame McNair. Kubiak has looked dead tired at the START of games lately. It's obvious he is in over his head. Any other owner would have fired him by now. Keeping him is torture...not mercy. Now it's affecting his health. Hopefully Kubiak is okay, but put him out of his misery already. We would treat an injured dog better than this. Do you see ANY coach on an NFL sideline looking as worn out as Kubes?

    Collinsworth was talking, earlier in the game, about how Kubiak didn't take the bye week off and worked non-stop during the off week. The guy is obviously feeling the pressure and trying to hold onto his job. The bye week is a time to rest and mentally check out. Coaches and players need that because the season is such a grind.

    I think Kubiak may have just driven himself to a point where his body failed him. Hopefully he's okay and a reduction of stress and some rest will have him up and about in no time. I've been a big detractor of his for a long time, but I have always wanted him to succeed.

    Good to hear that it isn't cardiac in nature.

    Dizziness can actually be caused by any number of things. Not eating enough, dehydration, etc. I had heard reports that he was having pain, but not sure if that was true or not.

    Hope for the best for him and a quick recovery.

    If you have to work yourself to death to be mediocre (if he leaves At the end of the year he is likely to have a career record below .500) it's time to find a new line of work. I hope he's okay and I don't mean to kick him when he's down but something has to give and I want it to be our kicker...not his ticker. I don't want to see him collapsing again. If he's that stressed after a bye week how does he survive the season?

    His appendix could have burst.

    let's say you could "IR" kubiak. would any of you entertain of the idea of keeping him on board next season as an offensive coordinator but have someone else run the ship?

    Sure. If say the head coaching job was offered to Kyle Shanahan from the Redskins. Somebody who's already familiar with the type of offensive schemes we already run and who can add his own wrinkles to the plate. The kid is a brilliant young mind and he probably isn't leaving his father's team unless he's given a head coaching job.

    If Kubiak would feel less stress, maybe he has to do it for his health, and be okay with being demoted to the offensive coordinator job. It would basically be a role reversal of what we once had when Kyle Shanahan was here.
