I'm asking you...but you're deeming there to be a spectrum of correct on one side and huddle on the other.  

The huddle bashing is more annoying than the annoying bashers on the huddle.  Post about football, not about the posts that are about football.  

 

    So...are you asking me a question? Or making a statement? Because you just confused the Schmitt out of me.

 

    I have no idea why folks are wanting to get rid of Rivera. Well, I have heard the complaints, of which, many may be valid. However, looking at the big picture? I don't see the advantage of getting rid of him.

 

    Hurndog may scare the begebus out of me. But Rivera has earned my support.

iamhubby is definitely the squirrel at furry gatherings.  

 

    I actually had a female friend that owned a pet squirrel. Of course it had no choice. It was on a leash. But danged if it wasn't a friendly thing.

    In my original post, I mentioned that. I said, after his first two years. Rivera has only missed the playoffs once.

 

    Is this another example of someone reading the title, then responding before reading the thread?

 

    Shula is lauded league wide for his Offense. How creative it is. The moving parts, the misdirection. Only in Carolinas does he get shcmitted on. In Panther land? It is Cam that bails him out. Who is right?

I have no issue with Shula's creativity, none whatsoever.   He doesn't use it.  We run a very successful and creative play and never see it again.  For instance, last week we ran 3 plays that were highly creative and successful, all on one drive and didn't see another one after that.

We have the talent on this team to spread a defense out and make them defend the whole field.  It took our GM to trade KB away to force Shula to play these players.   AND STILL NEVER WENT DEEP.   We line up in the I formation and play 1950's football over and over again.  

We may make the playoffs but you can thank Wilks not Shula for getting us there.  

We arguably have the most dangerous QB in the league yet we are 24th in the NFL Offensively in points scored.

Of our 9 games we have played we have scored more points than the teams average only 3 times (See Below average points allowed APA vs Carolina Points Scored CPS)  Of those three games we are 2-1

Team  APA   CPS                         

SF   26.6   23

Buf 21.8   9

NO  19.4   13

NE  22.4  33

DET 23.2   27

Phil 19.9   23

Chic 21.4   3

TB   24.8    17

Atl   21.5    20

If we make the playoffs we will have to be much better than scoring below their average.

    I agree our Offense must improve. Nah, must improve in the Red Zone. Normally we move the ball well between the 20s. But like a lot of teams. When we hit the Red Zone, we tend to have a hard time. In 15, we were near the top in Red Zone Efficiency. If we get back to that, or close, our Offense will look much better.

 

    Sure we are not perfect. But we have a really good team. We play a very disciplined, physical game. Most teams cannot compete with that. We will need our Red Zone Offense to pick it up, if we want to compete against the better teams. That I can agree with.

No doubt.  We have seen Shula's creativity but I want to see more of it.  If he ran more of those interesting plays from similar standard formation than you put that thought into defenses minds that it might be another one of those plays and they have to hesitate which would open things up.

I keep thinking of how KC does it.  They run so many creative plays that teams do just as I mentioned.  They look out for them.  Shula has the mind for it but not the balls.

See John Fox on the Broncos. I truly believe Rivera to be a great guy and mediocre coach. Mich like Foxy, who was able to do great things with the Broncos, but the FO knew he couldn’t get them over the hump to win it all. 

Guess how that story ended.

Not saying I want RR gone per say, but I can understand the sentiment without getting all Hubby about it.

a more descriptive title to much to ask for?  Although, if you titled it, "Rivera is a great coach" no one would have clicked it.

He's a great defensive coach, not head coach. He doesn't have a clue about offense or how to mange it

One magic season is great.

Perennial contending seasons are better.

And honestly, can you really call it magic if we didn't win it all?

2013, 2014, 2015 all play off seasons. 2017 is on course to do so. 

And yeah, 2015 would be called a Cinderella season, the clock struck 12, though. 

And in the end, who is out there available and willing, who would be better?

(Here come to Cowher and Gruden calls.)

Chances are that any replacement coaching staff is going to be worse, much worse.
