Just a thought. But what if our players (save AJ) are NOT as elite, or even as GOOD as we think they are. What if they're average players at best, but the coaching is what's making them overachieve? These late-round picks that Smithiak have landed are playing like stars, and we say, "see how good the players are? With all this talent we should be a playoff team?" What if Kubiak and his staff are just coaching players like OD and Quin and Casey and Jacoby Jones and even Schaub, and making them way better than they would be elsewhere? Good coaches make the best of what they have, and I think Kubiak has made a hell of a lot of lemonade out of lemons. I'm not necessarily spreading the love for Kubiak; I'm just saying before you pull the trigger on firing the guy, maybe you should look at what they've really had to work with.
