@josephperson
Rivera said he can't figure out why Mare is short on his long field goals yet strong on his kickoffs.


could never figure out why Kasay was strong on his fgs and couldn't kick off.

sounds like he was out there making plays that would have resulted in big gains for the offense.

this now sounds more realistic. You don't sit on a shelf all camp and pwn people as a rookie.....Rivera pretty much hinted his play was a liability out there. Those picks weren't really picks it seems.


maybe...but i like the fact that he's being aggressive.

i think some CBs are good about getting away with PI calls. norman might be one of those guys, but that's something you can't count on. still...loving the aggressiveness.

Most kickers swing a driver off the tee on a kickoff and a 7 iron on FGs. Kasay somehow had the control to still swing a driver on FGs.

AGREE!!!!
I will go out of my mind and Tutu is given the No.3 WR spot. RR better now make creating plays going to Tutu on a crucial third down like to how did with Naanee last year.

RR always bring the scrubs from SD but never want to sign a decent guy like a "Garay".



Can someone please translate this into English? I think I know what he's getting at I just want to be sure.

i'm thinking "better now" should have been "better not".

makes sense after that.

Big 3rd down plays often went to Legatron last year where he did his Legatron thing....he doesn't want TuTu to make us have deja vu of that.

I appreciate Rivera leveling the excitement of Norman to the press, but I bet in his mind he was thrilled to see him making plays and creating turnovers. Even he if was doing some grabbing/pulling, it doesn't change the fact that he caught four interceptions. It would be different if he was batting it down, but he was actually catching the ball.

I may be wrong, but usually when a CB is flagged for pass interference he doesn't get an INT, he just causes an incompletion. Sounds like Norman has the hands of an angel out there.
