I also like how he was careful to not disrespect any of the players on our team, while acknowledging upgrades will be neccessary.

I love it...Rivera seems like the perfect man for the job. He is gonna bring the right mindset that we need and I think he will keep Hurney controlled during the draft. He understands the need for a good QB and how to attack another team on offense and be innovstive instead of playing not to lose and being predictable.

I'm so happy and I feel like this franchise is headed in the right direction...my only wish is that it could have happened a year earlier.

Loved the presser, favorite quotes were (paraphrasing) "we're going to run an attacking-style defense" and "I'm going to treat players like men, but when I have to yell or get in their face to get my point accross, I will".

Fox was a tough, physical coach - but I always thought this team was lacking that competitive "fire" even in the glory days. I think Jake supplied some of that, and Beason does as well, but it has to come from the top down at a certain point. I understand that Fox didn't believe in critisizing players in public, but there are times when that's the only way you can get your point accross to some of these guys.

I'm also glad to hear we're going to play aggressive defense, in a division with the Saints and the Falcons I don't think we can win by sitting back and playing a cover-2 shell... we have to get after Brees and Ryan.

Even more excited about the hire now that I've listened to the man speak.

Said all the right things and hit all the hot topics. He is exactly who I thought he would be.

Hit on the 4-3 debate, the balanced attack, as well as didn't piss anyone off like Clausen. I am looking forward to what we see when the bullets start to fly.

Seems TE will be a priority. Hope we can get some offense this year and we might a ok.

I got the same impression, he said he likes our TE's but we might be looking for someone who can fill all the roles (blocking, receiving,etc)

Ya I love the way he worded it. Something to the effect of ya we have great tight ends by commitee. Hopefully we can get 1 guy who can do all things you look for in a T.E to be the starter...... And of course he may already be on the roster.

And 1 more comment and then i'll get off his ditka.

I liked everything he said in the presser but what really got me was I believe everything he said in his presser.

Was it me or did JR just not seem right? Maybe it was my video feed, but seems like he couldnt get his words right.

gumby61184@GAlexander21 As a Falcon fan, the hire worries me, to be honest. I'm just glad you're not getting Luck too.

I'm sure we all wished that this was the beginning of the 2010 season instead....might just be a timing thing here. Maybe we always wanted Rivera, yet the timing was better for it to happen this year. I'm downright thrilled with this hire...
