Uh-Oh. On not continuing with the Bears in 2007:

"The timing sometimes could have been better or it could have been worse. "It is what it is right now," Rivera said. "It's just something that's happened and I'm going to go from there."

@ @billvoth He is a high character n very respectable guy. Players will love him bc he's a players coach n has played the game. Knows the game


Urlacher in 2007 on Rivera:

Bears All-Pro linebacker Brian Urlacher said. "Look at the way he carries himself at meetings, the way he prepares us for games, the way he speaks to us. I'd hate to lose him, but I think he needs to be a head coach."

How dare you spoil that poor idiots dreams with your logic !!


You can make lateral moves if you give them the title of assistant coach though.

I would definitely prefer Rivera over Fewell or any other candidate that's been mentioned, can't argue with his credentials as a defensive coordinator and he's known to be good at dealing with his players and communicating.

The other plus to Rivera is that he's built up allot of connections around the league over the years and could probably pull together a much more accomplished coaching staff then any of the other candidates.

Interesting thought if Rivera got hired:

This upcoming season (if there is a season), we play the NFC North which, as you are quite aware of, is the same division that Bears and Vikings are in.

Considering that Chicago was the team he coached and played at and considering that the Vikings hired Leslie Frazier as HC who, btw, was Rivera's teammate in Chi-town, it will be interesting to see this interesting battle between former Bears.

just so we're clear, I've already posted the proof that states the above is not true.

According to Gantt:

@skippapotamus Nothing stopping Clements or Zorn, and perhaps not Musgrave from taking OC job.

Josh McDaniels single handedly destroyed the Denver Broncos. Gone are Braylon Edwards and Jay Cutler.
His last 26 games with the Broncos they went 6-20. Now their future hinges on The Golden Calf of Bristol.
The 9 years before McDaniles arrived they won 85 games.
For the life of me I don't get the McDaniels ball hugging.
Just say no to the idiot boy McDaniels.


McDaniels...terrible HC....very good OC

According to Gantt:


Clements was already blocked from other teams. I don't know why people don't get that teams aren't obligated to give away their assistants.

According to Gantt, there is nothing blocking. Which, unless I'm reading it wrong, which would mean that the Packers don't have the capability to block him this year, which would probably mean his contract ends this season.

And if it's the block to the Bears that you're talking about, you do realize that was a year ago, right?

This man is correct:

The Bears faxed a formal request for permission to meet with Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements today, a day after Green Bay's season ended in overtime at Arizona, and that request was quickly denied with general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy agreeing they didn't want their quarterbacks coach calling plays for the Bears next season, a source said.

Now, would they block him again (if this is not the last year of his contract) if he wants to interview for teams outside the division? I highly doubt it.

Looks like San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera is headed for a second interview today with the Carolina Panthers.

Oh, I know that Clements was blocked from the Bears, but, that was also one year ago. The situation with us trying to reach him could be a little different.

1) His contract could've expired this year. I'm not sure, because like Mr. Scot said in another thread, no one keeps an up-to-date free agent coach database.

and 2) We aren't a Division Rival, which would probably help us if we did try to reach him.

All I'm saying is that, according to Gantt, the man is unblockable this time around. Take that for what you will.
