NFL Turning Point: Panthers vs Vikings (Video)

Recommended Posts



All things considered, Rivera's got to be ecstatic with how things have turned out for him. Passed over for years as a head coach, he finally gets a chance, and lands a potential superstar QB as his first draft pick. Talk about winning the lottery.

That was nice except for the loss. Having not seen the final drive, I didn't realize Cam got down to the 1 yard line.

I'm glad Rivera doesn't blow up on his players during the game and probably not too many times off the field. I think he saw what happen in Chicago with Ditka. Watching the NFLN Football life shows that his act of blowing up on players for not doing it his way got old after the Super Bowl and the players started to hate him.

Greg Olson did an interview a few days ago and said that Rivera had a great reputation with his former players in Chicago, and that he really enjoyed playing for him now. Ron comes across as being a straightforward and honest coach, who doesn't play head games with his players.

He asks for their best effort and lets them know when they don't live up to it, but doesn't put them down when their best effort lets him down. All you can ask for is execution and effort, can't manufacture talent out of thin air, and I think some coaches buy into their own motivational hype and believe they can make subpar players play like Pro Bowlers every game.

Players got tired of Ditka's narcissism, Rex Ryan reminds me of Ditka soon the players will get tired of him as well.
