Now all we need is some good people around him. I cant wait to see what our defense looks like. I think Davis and Beason will put up career numbers.

i really hope this is just some early jokes and then people get over it. it would be pretty humiliating to be known as the team whose fan base freaks out over this.


I'd hate to have seen the jokes if Meeks had got the job...

You've never been more than sarcastic when talking to me. Didn't seem douchey at all.

Thanks for doing my wiki homework for me though ;)

This is about the best I can do to answer my own question:

From Ron Rivera's wiki page is a link to a list of notable Puerto Ricans and people of Puerto Rican descent. There are three people noted as being coaches (none in football) and three NFL players (none but Ron have done any coaching). So until I hear otherwise, he'll be the first person of Puerto Rican descent to be the head coach of an NFL team.

Yay for him.

This is correct, they can block lateral moves, but not promotions.
