Where are the Rivera-haters now?

After coming out flat last week, Carolina came out like a house on fire today. Only one 3-and-out that I recall, and inspiration all around. Rivera and co came with a plan, executed it, and we beat a hated divisional rival.

Deal with it.

I don't hate Rivera, but I do think that he needs to get into Chud's ear about running the overcomplicated run options when it isn't needed. Our backs, especially Deangelo, are being put into some rough situations because of how "cute" he's trying to get with a lot of the play calls.

There is a place for tricky run options, but they can't be your base running set, when they are not working.

Relatively minor nitpick though, since they were much less cute with the playcalling today.

This entire paragraph makes no sense, since our base running today WAS the read option and we were FAR MORE "cute" than we were even last week.

He did his job this week. That's why you won't ready any complaining. This is how we are supposed to play. When they don't, call the team out. It's pretty simple to understand. Maybe you're fine with mediocrity, but the rest of us aren't. I'm glad Ron did the job he's paid to do.

I'll be more impressed with him when he outduels a guy like Coughlin, not whoever the Saints* 3rd string coach is.

I saw Rivera override McDermott on a play call, which was great to see. I finally felt like he was actually coaching on the sideline.

Yeah, that was good to see....he saw something and called a timeout I believe and pointed it out that the D wasn't set up right for it.

But Rivera should of NEVER let Chud get cute on that 4th down near the goal. unneeded.
