Coach or not. Team still has to play.

What Rivera knows is that in order to make the playoffs we will likely need to win 10 games. It doesn't matter which ones. Last Sunday is gone, all there is left is the next 15 games. Move on and try to win the next one.

Wish some folks here could figure out the move on part of it.

Just don't play the whole "race to 10" card. 10 doesn't always get you in, as Coach Radio (Raheem Morris) found out a few years ago. The Falcons will win a bunch, make it to the playoffs and choke like always. The Saints* with Drew Brees are always a contender. I could see both of those teams getting 10 or more. It's the division games like you have next week against the Saints* that will decide your fate.

Please! Beat the Saints*! :D

That's not the point though. As a coach and as players they absolutely do have to move on to next week; that's not up for debate and it's not what has people steamed. Monday during your presser after the team comes out looking like they really just don't want to be there in a divisional road game is not that time though.

Saying "there's always next week" just reeks of a defeatist attitude. Whether that's his attitude or not none of us can say because we're not with the man in team meetings and we don't get to watch how the team deals with embarrassing themselves on Sunday. The statement obviously doesn't sit right with a lot of people though and no amount of justification is going to fix that. I hope we don't have to hear anything that passive out of him in a presser again for a while.

He didn't say "There's always next week", he said "Well, there's next week". I honestly took it as "Yeah we got our ass beat, but it was one game, we have to correct the mistakes and work hard and keep our morale high and not give up because of this game, we have 15 more to try to win". Maybe it's just me.

  1. No we dont want him raging at the press. We want him to simply say something simple that shows this staff understands the things they need to fix. It could be as simple as "The amount of effort was unacceptable and will be corrected" We dont need a hissy fit and we dont need details but after the fox days we have a right as ticket holders to an explanation.

Let the proactive peeps, like myself, lash out now...either we'll look foolish or everyone will join us in the future.

I really do hope our team will be ready next week..

Are people really ignorant to believe that Rivera is a defeatist kind of guy with a passive attitude??

Seriously?????

I have heard him described as intense, scary, intimidating but not defeatist and passive. I guess that is where taking something in the context of what we already know would apply.
