A coach should never get praise for doing his job. He should get praise for going an extra mile.

My only issue was Chud's playcalling at the end of the game....

I would have went for it on 4th and 1...but I understand the decision

That's not Chud's call. Chud's only decision would have been deciding what play to run had Rivera decided to go for it on fourth and one.

Wow, professionals showing up to work! The fourth game of the season they haven't quit!

Hand it to Rivera! I don't know how he does it.

Ron Rivera is a conservative coach. I'm done defending him. He isn't the answer.

I usually like what you post here in general... But you have turned into quite the sour puss here as of late. Just try and get it over it. It SUCKED that we lost that game, no doubt about it. I also know that you are mostly objective in regards to this team... So I ask you to think about what you're saying and implying...

Yes he's a second year head coach... Yes he's made some mistakes, but so have the players on the field.

People can't be this blind and downright hateful because of a loss... I get venting for a few hrs after the game, I myself was Rabid the rest of the afternoon. If Cam holds onto that ball we win, and this is completely different. It's not Riveras fault, it's not Cam's fault... It's cliche but true in all sports... You win or lose as a team.

We gotta move past this just like our players have to and keep churning our legs... If not we will be 4-12 or God knows how bad it could be. Keep your heads in the game, it's a long season in which anything can happen. I'm still very optimistic about where we will go this year. Everybody knows we blew that game, hell even an Atlanta writer said as much on ESPN radio... But we have to move past it in order to get better. That goes for the team and the fan base.

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link... Nobody wants this season to be a disappointment... Not you or anybody.

Fighting through this adversity will build the character of this team... Like it or not, there's A lot of truth in everything I just said

Sorry, i was not clear...Chud's playcalling the last 2 possessions was my problem....He was channeling his inner John Fox....

90% of NFL coaches would have punted

Fantastic post...

The defenseive scheme was on point.. Just some execution issues in the nameless secondary and poor tackling by everyone. If we actually had a legitimate FS starting it would have been a better outcome.

Rivera did not tell the gang..hey nakamura just stare down Roddy White and let him get behind you..

Players make plays..but not our players last week...apologies to Newton and Charles Johnson and Frank Alexander.

I agree with the majority of your post. But I knew nakamura had no business in there before that last drive. The same thing happened on that bomb td pass to white earlier in the game. He had been allowing white to get behind him all game, then falling backwards in front of him allowing the completion and preventing others from making a play on the ball. I fully expect Rivera to handle it the same way he handled Adams. No jersey for nakamura next week.

I'm not sure if putting in a completely unprepared Martin would have been smart.

In hindsight, yeah, but otherwise, I dunno. Next game, he should focus on having his depth prepared as well.

Damn, Mega.

You need to get a job at a newspaper or website. Felt like I was reading a well-written article.

Kudos.
