Rivera should be praised for fielding a prepared team

A lot of huddlers think like this and these kinda thoughts lead to 2-14 seasons, depression, masturbating in rage, and autism.
In that order?

You make some good points. Rivera has many, many good qualities. Yes, I felt the team was prepared.
On the other hand, I think Rivera is a bad game day manager. Some of his moves hurt rather than help the confidence of the team and players. And no, I'm not talking about the punt in the 4th. The 2 minute drill in the first half was a major blunder, but today, in his press conference, he did not find it reasonable to even be asked about it. And this was not the first time he has sent the team the message that he doesn't trust either the offense or the defense. These are the guys he chose to put on the field. Especially on offense, it's time to take off the training wheels. I assume the players know how to run a 2 minute drill. If they don't, then maybe they aren't as prepared as we'd like to think.
This team has enough talent to win. The line between winning and losing is razor thin most weeks. Some of Ron's decisions are costing us W's, and until he realizes this, there is little hope for significant improvement.

I've been calling for Nakamura's head since the Tampa game, not sure if you remember, but he was the one at fault for the punt block. I also knew he wasn't starting material after the Jet's preseason game. He has a lot of heart, but he's nothing but a modern day Rudy.
It's also time to put Luke in the middle, the kid has been looking good, and it's time he took over the reigns.

not excusing that last play, but you could tell why he was given so much play time. i mean what was the other option? martin? the guy seems like one of those who's going to take it personally (which he has) and get better.
