No kidding. The players have been dropping like flies with injuries and now the coaches are falling apart. Tough job.

When I heard what had happened, the first thing I thought was that he had either a stroke or an aneurysm.

Hopefully not. Being conscious and talking is a good sign.

Amazing the toll being a head coach takes on you. Speedy full recovery.

He'll be all right, just a little stunned to be up 21 - 3 at the half.

John Fox is only 6 years older than Kubiak... I would have guessed more.

I'll bet they're both feeling about 70 years old right about now.
