Rivera did say rookie CB Josh Norman played soft vs Giants, and S Haruki Nakamura was playing too deep, more like how he aligned w/ Ravens.

younger corners? Rivera is either clueless or a liar. Giants game got away from you...wtf? Cam seeking help for his issues with losing makes a statement. I like the kid and respect his trying to be proactive.

Good that Cam went after the "mind coach" and that the team didnt do it for him, shows that he wants it.

Watch how those who bent over backwards to insist that there is nothing to Newton's demeanor will now spin the personal mind coach angle to a positive.

Sounds like the honeymoon period is over between Rivera and the local media. Last year, he was refreshing and engaging with his responses. Almost like he was giving more detail than the question asked for.

Now, it seems win or loss, he's more abrupt and definitely more salty.
