I suppose Coach is trying to learn to win too. Just like the players. Learn to close the game. That 3rd and 2 call was ballsy. Unfortunately they came out smelling like manure and not roses. If the call was successful we might be celebrating our 2nd win. Instead were all questioning why we didn't go for a shorter route to a te, screen pass or a run. Such is life for us armchair coaches :-|

Or you could put it on the defense for shitting the game away when we had the chance to close it out. But yeah, blame Rivera! HE IS NOT ONE OF US.

Still very excited about our team... Yes, I would have liked (no, loved) a win, but we are learning. There were a few questionable calls, but the fact of the matter is that we just couldn't stop the Saints ....

We have had two major off-season acquisitions. One is Newton, the other is Rivera. And one has exceeded expectations, while the other has not lived up to them yet.

At least Rivera doesn't play to not lose. He has balls and is willing to go for the juglar. It beats what we have seen for the past 9 years or so. We just need our personnel to catch up to the coaches vision.

Rivera is fine.

Our defense isnt too good. DT's and we are missing almost our entire starting LB's.

ST's is bad to.

Get those things fixed and we will start to dominate teams.

The team is playing hard and he transformed the offense. Defense is filled with injures and they suck because of it. Rivera will right this team soon I think we finish 8-8 at worst.

Definitely playing to win as opposed to playing not to lose but they need to learn when to revert to foxball. The staff is on the fast track learning curve as well. But its frustrating. They have to use these RBs more. Get down in the red zone and its pass or cam design run. Feed the friggin beasts!

You don't think that Cam's success reflects well upon Rivera? He did draft the guy and provide him with a coaching staff that uses him to the best of his abilities. I think it's all too easy to assume Cam would have found the same success in any other system or under any other coaches.

Rivera has done a tremendous job with this young team. And if you can't see that then you are blind, have ridiculous standards or just really really stupid.

Time management and other things like that are not on Rivera. It is a young team and those things are going to get straightened out.
