This is what i love about Kubiak...he never blames anyone...

This was part of the problem. There was zero accountability for anyone here.

If Matt throws three INTs, including a pick six: It's on me.
When Steve Slaton would fumble on back-to-back drives: That's my fault, this kid is trying hard...
If Randy misses three FGs: I didn't do a good enough job.
If Kevin Walter drops a crucial 3rd down conversion: That's not on Kevin, he blocked well the whole day...
If the defense allows four scoring drives of 80+ yards: They fought hard, but it's my fault...
If Special Teams is their usual incompetent self: Special Teams was battlin out there...

It's nice he didn't throw anyone under the bus ALL the time, but hold SOMEONE accountable for their mistakes. I've seen High School head coaches hold their players more accountable than Kubiak, and Kubiak is in charge of 53 professional athletes. If he's got the urge to coddle them and protect them from the bad men and women who want to say they didn't play well, then he should go down a few notches and coach High School ball.

These were men he was coaching, and he treated them like children, even down to the point of assessing blame. That is never a good thing.

I think there is a difference between publicly holding someone accountable, and holding someone accountable overall. Players have always said that they loved playing for Kubiak because they knew that he had their backs. But behind closed doors, I think it was a different matter all together.

I think Kubiak had his short-comings, and obviously it was time for him to go. I think this may be a situation where he was only able to get this organization to a certain point, and now we need someone to come in and get us over the hump. I'm just not sure who I'm hoping for in the head coaching race yet.
