If Rivera was fired, who'd you want?

81 posts in this topic

Just as the title suggests. If Rivera was actually fired/resigned/or his contract wasn't renewed, who exactly would you want to take his place?

Honestly, I've thought about it for a while, and I really don't know who the awesome coaching candidates out there, but if I had to pick one, it would probably be Mike Zimmer. We would keep the 43 base defense, would play with a toughness that other teams would respect, and it would probably piss off a lot of Falcons' fans, which would be hilarious.

Other than Zimmer, I think my next candidate would be Kevin Greene. I know Kevin Greene hasn't really been "the guy" in Green Bay, but he's fiery, he seems partially crazy, and could really give our team the kick in the ass it needs.

Mike Zimmer would be a hell of a coach. Very fiery guy who wouldn't just stand with that retarded blank stare like Rivera and McDerp do.

ugh.

Definitely not saying to fire our coach. But, I keep seeing all of these "FIRE RIVERA" threads, so I thought, who the hell would these people actually want in his place? Most people just bandwagon on the "FIRE X" threads, with no idea of what they would want after.

Id like to move Chud up and find a DC like a Herm Edwards or maybe someone younger.

But someone mentioned the name "Mike Zimmer". Hell yea!

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
