Explosive decompression could cause the pilots to be incapacitated by debris being tossed around in the cockpit. Slow decompression could lead to hypoxia and the incapacitation of the flight crew without their knowledge (Payne Stewart). These are a few of the scenarios that I can think of off the top of my head.
If there is anybody thinking that these are a "million to one" change, just look at the number of commercial aircraft flights per year.
