in the real world most people don't learn by being screamed at by an irrational idiot. but it makes for good movie football coaches so keep making threads bro

Good news is that according to DeAngelo, the players take him VERY seriously.

Rivera believes in praising in public and criticizing in private, it's why guys love playing for him - that kind of respect from the coach builds trust and loyalty.

Joe Gibbs has 3 SB rings, never saw him yell at anyone.

I don't want my coach calling out players or screaming during press conferences. There's a time and a place for anger... but organized press conferences with the media is not one of them.

Hard to take anyone seriously who thinks what goes on in the locker room behind closed doors is remotely similar to how they act in a press conference.

Like I said in another thread, think about the top 10 press conference rants of all time... how many of those guys still have a job in coaching and/or a SB ring?

You should probably tell him this, you know, like face to face...

I've been in the presence of Rivera on several occasions now, and he's intimidating... bigger guy then you would think and has a no BS demeanor about him.

To the OP: You know calling the coach "chico" is a racial slur and is pretty disgusting. It pretty much negates anything you say afterwards.

Trust me, if you met him in person you would take him seriously.

My best friend growing up had his picture taken with him at a banquet when he was a kid and he looked like a giant...

I have no doubt Rivera has made some young players check their pants before leaving the locker room at halftime... Even in TC several people said he was calm overall but when a player did something really stupid he ripped into him and used several choice words while doing so.

Smitty is as fiery as you can get and he snapped on a reporter whom he thought was slighting Rivera. I have no doubt he commands respect from his players due to his physical stature, demeanor, and his experience.

We need a coach that's intimidating like Dick Vermeil. Seriously though, Rivera was a linebacker, for The Golden Calf of Bristol's sake. Is there a coach in the NFL that could kick his ass? (and don't say Del Rio. I mean a real coach.)

Well I think it's too early to tell anything but a couple things come to mind.

1. Rivera seems like a coach of actions. Something along hte lines of if you keep messing up I'll replace you, or sit you (Goodson). Simple as that, it doesn't take take or outward expression to have your team take you seriously.

2. We are in a rebuilding year and Rivera has no bond with these young players. The last thing he wants to do is piss someone off, like Hardy and not have them play for him like some teams (49ers last year). Also once Rivera picks his guys and has more time with the team I believe he will also have more expectations and it will be more of a letdown/disappointing if things aren't going right than it would be right now. Rivera will become more comfortable and more expectations/expression will come, be patient.
