That's not really fair. Kubiak has had far more time in Houston, and some truly horrible seasons, to install that system and get his guys. I think Kubiak always brought great teaching and communication skills to the table but Shanahan was the mentor. And it's not like the Skins have been completely unable to run this season. When Hightower was healthy, they had some pretty good games. I think Shanahan just needs a QB and a little more time. We'll see though.
