So... Who does Rivera fire/replace from his staff?

Now that HE has job security... Will he make any moves and get rid of anybody from his staff?

Does he have mercy on his staff, as JR did for him, or will he bring out the old axe!?

I'd really like to see Chud get the boot in favor of Norv Turner... But I could also see Ron running with what he's got!

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during that meeting...

So fellas, what say you? Does he axe anyone? Or does he go with what he's got?

When we win the SuperBowl with him as our HC... I better not read a single damned post from you about how you always wanted him to stay or "I told you guys he could win"

You should be ashamed of yourself!

I expect Chud will stay, unfortunately. Some special teams heads need to roll.

I agree, but unfortunately in his last interview who made it a point to emphasize how much the ST had improved... Not likely a move imo

I just want him to bring in Norv Turner as assistant head coach / offensive coordinator. Maybe just demote Chud or something.

Keep Chud on the right track and get a real QB coach. Hire Weinke, Jim Zorn, George Whitfield...

I'd love Zorn or maybe even Norv if he's willing to take a step down

I thought special teams play improved once Richard Rogers got comfortable in the role (took a few games) but for the final 4-5 games special teams looked a bit better. Would like to see what he can do with a full offseason as prep and more control of personnel.

Coaches on the bubble? Offensive ones - Chud, the running backs coach Settle and maybe Graves, the WR coach. Possibly Shula? With the Scott Turner and Norv Turner connection, I hope we replace Chud w/ Norv.

Eh, Whitfield and Weinke make a shitload of money on providing private lessons, doubt they'd be willing to give it up to be a full-time coach.

I'd like Russ Grimm, Norv/Wishenhunt and a very good ST coach here.

I'm still kinda iffy on McDermott. Well see

This just made me think of Hadooki Nakamorons fake punt fail.

Not every play works every time. In retrospect, yeah - pretty dumb. To be honest, I sure as heck did not see that coming. Very uncharacteristic of us - but even so - special teams did improve slightly once Rodgers took over full time. Def. have to do something about Adams and our return situation, but we covered pretty well and made great tackles.

No reason why they should.

Why give up autonomy for accountability?

I'd like to see an OC not named Chudzinski or Turner.

I don't see any coaching personnel changes. We can only hope that the current staff has learned its lessons. Hopefully JR gave them an ultimatum and there is a sense of urgency.

Safeties coach, special teams coach, tight ends coach (aside from olsen they have done nothing), all should be fired at minimum

Might be kinda tough to fire the safeties coach seeing as we don't have one.

(Steve Wilks coaches the entire secondary, and I doubt he's going anywhere)

Realistically, no one.

I wish he would replace...

OC - Rob Chudzinski with Norv Turner
ST - Richard Rogers with Dave Toub
Assistant OL - Ray Brown with Juan Castillo
Strength and Conditioning - Joe Kenn with Rick Lyle
QB - Mike Shula with Chris Weinke

Wilks was fantastic this year.

For those that want Turner - read on Chud for five seconds. Chud made his name working under Turner. Even if the team fired Chud, Turner probably wouldn't take that job for that reason. He's not going to take a position coach job. There's just not a place here for that to happen.

There is a difference between wanting someone and thinking it's going to happen.

Most of us (most) recognize that there is no way that Norv Turner will be a part of this staff but it would be a good pick up if he did join the staff.

Chud is just a little to bit of a bipolar play caller, I'm sure he is a great guy and a good human being but he really needs to work on staying consistent throughout the game regardless of what the fans say (whether they boo or cheer).

I think he needs to replace both is coordinators. Chud is the one making the team look bad with his retarded play calling. McDermot needs to go because basically Rivera had to take over and coach the defense the last 3/4 of the season by himself.
