Rivera needs to be himself. Whatever that is. If his self sucks then you get a new coach but players can see through contrived bs.

I am not a fan of coaches who wear their emotions on their sleeve. As someone mentioned, Belichick shows emotion maybe twice a year that is something other than a semi frown.

Also, don't read to much into sideline demeanor. Take Coach K.....he doesn't show emotion courtside. He believes the real coaching isn't done on game day. He is there to implement what they have worked on.


I'm one of the biggest Duke fans that you'll ever find and I'm going to have to call BS on this.

It is a bit of an exaggeration to make a point....everyone shows emotions.

Coach K OVERALL....sits calm and collective in scenarios many don't. You really want to fuss over that?

Rivera is very composed on the sideline, but he still slaps guys on the back when they do well and acknowledges good play. But these guys are professionals, and he does expect them to do their job without cheering every time. I don't know how many times last year he told Cam 'great job young man'. That's a perfect and respectful reaction to a young player doing well IMO.

As long as the defense improves, the special teams improve, and we make the playoffs, Ron can do whatever he wants on the sidelines.

...and don't assume that Rivera's stoic sideline demeanor means he doesn't rip guys a new ass when he needs to, because he does.

Also, there are times when giving a guy a certain look is much more powerful than anything you can say to him. All those sideline antics may make us fans feel better, but I don't think it makes much of a difference from a coaching standpoint.

I actually worry about a coach who is constantly losing his cool and screaming at people on the sideline, makes me wonder if he feels like he isn't in control of the team.

Rex Ryan talks all of the time, and his team seems to not maintaining their great start. Plus I'd rather not hear if Coach Rivera has a foot fetish.

Ron does yell and be emotional but it's usually off camera and we don't really get to see it...but he does use emotion..remember he was grown up in a military enviornment.
