Quotes: Kubiak Press Conference

Posted Oct 14, 2013

Head coach Gary Kubiak spoke to the media Monday afternoon.

Head Coach Gary Kubiak
(on if he can give an update about QB Matt Schaub’s ankle and FS Danieal Manning’s fractured fibula) “That’s not true on Danieal.”

(on if FS Danieal Manning doesn’t have a hairline fracture and an update on QB Matt Schaub) “That’s not my understanding, not the way I understand it. As far as Matt, Matt is actually getting some injections as we speak. Obviously, he’s very sore and beat up on the leg, ankle, everywhere. We’ll have to see where he’s at, but probably got a little bit lucky there. Danieal, the way it’s described to me as of right now, what I know right now, he has a significant knee injury and it’s something that’s going to take some time. We’re trying to evaluate exactly how much time before we make a decision moving forward. That’s what’s being evaluated right now.”

(on if QB Matt Schaub is unable to start this week, if QB T.J. Yates will start) “No, here’s what I’ll do. I think Matt’s going to be an end of the week decision one way or the other. I’ll prepare both Case (Keenum) and T.J. and we’ll go from there at the end of the week. I think with Matt, it’s going to be the end of the week before we know anything, so I’ll prepare the other two to play.”

(on Kansas City having 10 sacks yesterday) “They’re really good. I’ve had a brief opportunity to look at them today. They’re exceptional and even better at home with the crowd and what they’ve got going there. Obviously, I know all about that. I’ve been in there many times back in the day. Very big challenge for us offensively against their defense. They’ve been pretty special. As a football team, they’ve really protected the ball. That’s why they’re sitting there 6-0 right now.”

(on what it is about QB Case Keenum that he would prepare him along with QB T.J. Yates for this week) “I think I’ve got to prepare them both the same. It’s nothing different. We’ve got to put a game plan in and I’ve got to prepare both of them to play. It’s nothing different.”

(on QB Case Keenum’s strengths) “Well, he’s come a long way. He’s got the arm to make all the throws. He moves pretty good as a player. I think he’s come a long way as far as his smarts and understanding our system. He’s been working extremely hard. So we’ll see where we’re at.”

(on what he’ll need from the other safeties with FS Danieal Manning being out for a while) “Obviously, Shiloh (Keo) moves up right away. So they’re interchangeable form that standpoint. Brandon Harris can also go back there and play some safety. We’ll have to see where this evaluation goes. Are we talking about having to replace somebody for a long period of time? So we’ll have to see.”

(on how he evaluated QB Matt Schaub’s performance before he was injured) “I thought he played better yesterday. He moved the football. He moved the team. Obviously, we weren’t very good at all in the red zone. But I thought he stepped up and improved. You can always play better, but I thought he was doing things much better yesterday.”

(on how much he’s surprised about some of the lopsided scores in games and also the penalties since it’s uncharacteristic of his team’s) “Well, it’s surprising, shocking, use whatever word you want. It is what it is. That’s my responsibility. What did we have, seven penalties yesterday? I think they might all have been in the first half if I’m correct. It helped put us a in a hole from that standpoint. Penalties and turnovers have been our Achilles heel for a good month now. It’ just, like I said, you just continue to look at, try to improve upon, try to talk about, try to practice, try to do everything you possibly can to get them corrected.”

(on if the only reason QB Matt Schaub would not start this week is because of his health) “Yeah, we’re trying to evaluate his health right now. What I said was I think it’ll be an end of the week decision of whether or not he’s available, I don’t know. We’ll have to see.”

(on what he can do as a coach to alleviate the penalty issue) “You’ve just got to emphasize in every possible way that you can on the practice field, in the meeting room. That’s about all you can do. Just paying as much attention to it as you possibly can. Actually, that team we played yesterday had more penalties than us. That’s hard to believe. It didn’t feel that way for us as a team.”

(on if he can put a finger on why the team is having so many penalties) “No, if I could put my finger on it and make it go away, I would. I just only know how to just work through it and continue to do everything you can to alleviate it and get rid of it.”

(on if he has any idea why special teams have been an issue) “We’re inconsistent, just like a lot of things that are going on with the team. It’s not about one group as I said yesterday. We had some mistakes yesterday. We had a turnover for a touchdown. Had a couple of issues in return. But like I said, it’s a team thing. It’s not about one group. Obviously, they’ve got to play better than they’re playing, just like the offense and defense, same way.”

(on if he’s concerned that CB Kareem Jackson does not get the benefit of the doubt on many penalty calls) “You can’t play for the benefit of the doubt. We’re a man coverage football team. We’re aggressive; it’s a part of what we do. We’re not going to change what we do. There are times when he has to get his hands. Sometimes you don’t always agree with all of the calls, but you don’t want to take the aggression away from your players. Obviously, what is that, a 35 or 40-yard penalty that jump starts them as a football team? K-Jack knows that but he has to go back out there and cover in man-coverage again this week. We’re not going to change what we do defensively.”

(on if QB Matt Schaub will be the starter if he’s healthy) “We’ll have to see where we’re at. I have to see if he’s healthy.”

(on if he’s worried about his job) “No, I don’t worry about myself. I think I’ve probably been asked that a few times in my eight years. I’ve got a lot of people to worry about, a lot of players, a lot of coaches. I think it would be very selfish if I worried about myself, so no I do not.”

(on special teams issues) “The biggest thing is we’ve got some young players that we have to get better real quick. We’ve got some issues from that standpoint. We lost A.J. Bouye yesterday to a hamstring. That was an issue during the game. He’s been playing really well for us on special teams. I just think it’s about settling down and getting them to do the right thing. We’re working hard, they’re working hard. We as coaches just have to help them be more precise with what they’re doing. Like I said, it gets back to everybody, not just one person or one group.”

(on if he can share his conversations with Bob McNair) “Will I share my conversations with Bob with you? No, I won’t do that.”

(on if he has had conversations with Bob McNair) “Yeah, I do talk to him quite a bit though.”

(on if the mistakes are demoralizing to the team when they are doing so many things well) “Demoralizing, I don’t know. It’s confusing because you’ve got the number one defense in football and the sixth or seventh or eighth offense in moving the football. You’ve got a lot of good things going on, but where we are is next to last in the league in turnovers. I think there is only one team behind us if I’m right. Turnovers get you beat in this league and they’re getting us beat on a consistent basis. They’re also getting us in bad position in football games. Not just getting you beat, but getting you some really bad position. You look up yesterday, statistically at halftime and you would think there is no way you’re down 17-3, but you are, or whatever it was, 17-6. But you’re down and you’re back in the same position that you’ve been in, so that’s the tough thing.”

(on ILB Brian Cushing saying the blame is not on Kubiak, but on the players) “No, I think I can do more. We’ve got to do more. That’s my job. All I do, like I told you guys, I start with myself and everything we do. I’m not doing a good enough of a job right now with them for us to go out there and play the way we’re playing. I’m searching. That’s my job. I’ve got to get up there and figure it out, how we play better, how we play cleaner, how we give ourselves a better chance to win. I appreciate the players’ responsibility. I understand that we have responsibility—coaches, players, everybody—but I always begin with myself.”

(on if he has ever experienced a situation like this and if there is anything he can draw on) “Yeah, I’ve been a part of a couple of teams that have been through something similar like this. You just keep pushing. You look for that one play that might get you out of it or that one big game, that one big win that gets you out of it. As I’ve said continuously and I’ll say again today, our team is playing hard. We’re not just playing very efficient in a lot of areas. But our effort and our commitment and our practice and what we’re doing has been very, very good, so we just have to stay committed to that and find a way to get some success.”

(on how he would evaluate T Derek Newton’s play and if he will continue to start) “Yes, he will start. I thought he played better yesterday maybe than the past two weeks. We did spot Ryan (Harris) for him for a couple of series. He’s a second-year tackle in this league. He’s playing against a lot of good players. He’s continuing to grow up. It’s a little inconsistent right now, but I can say that about a lot of thing, but I can say I like Derek’s effort and I like Derek’s future. We just have to hang in there and keep working.”
