Is Ron Rivera an NFL Top 10 Coach?

I suppose being named 2013 Coach of the Year means nothing to them..

Less than a year ago, 90% of us wanted him fired immediately.  I was very happy with the changes that Rivera made last season, but I want more than one season of that before I go calling him a top 10 NFL coach.  My biggest concern is if he has a relapse to his ultra-conservative ways now that he has some job security.

 

 

Exactly. We need Riverboat Ron.

He's a Top 20 in my book, if he puts together another solid season with playoffs then he'll definitely jump way up.

We'll 7 of the 10 have won at least one SB. Only three spots left. And, those three (Reid, Jim, Foxy) have made at least one SB appearance before.

Kinda hard to argue with that list. One Playoffs appearance in three years; zero win.

RR def is top 12-15 tho if he keeps it up.

Not yet. Top 15-20 is more realistic imo.

No.  One winning season and one first round playoff loss does not make someone a top 10 head coach.  Every other coach on the list has had numerous playoff appearances and victories, all of them have taken at least 1 team to the Super Bowl. All but three have won at least one Super Bowl (Reid, Jim Harbaugh, and Fox).

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
