Lovie Smith parted ways with Rivera citing "professional differences" and San Deigo has one of the best GM's and scouting departments in the league the talent they had was unbelievable.

Rivera was passed over numerous times.

You've had to notice a correlation to his on-the-field, sideline demeanor Zod... Dude is a walking, talking robot - minus the artificial intelligence.

thats a given - any fool can see that - the question is when? during this season, after it, or will "management" give him another year?

I think if we go 4-12 or less, they will can him after this season

Rivera is terrible...period. The guy was a bad hire and needs to go Raheem Morris style. Time to get a coach in here with some HC experience.

Rivera's coaching style fits well with an older team. A team that knows their job and knows what is expected of them. Rivera would probably do well with a team with some age.

The problem is, he doesn't have that here. He has a ton of youth and a team that needs direction and fire. Rivera is learning on the job and unfortunately his players can't follow a coach who doesn't know the right direction to start with

I made a thread only a few games into last year basically saying he wasn't intimidating enough

And what happened as always, you get ripped. This new design or whatever deleted that thread

Going by voices, it sounded like Joe Person asked him if he ever got tired of saying the same thing every week. He said When he gets tired, he will no longer be a coach or something like that. I was like wha??? If you have to say the same poo, that means the guys are making the same mistakes and you're a shitty coach anyway.

I bet Rivera stays at least one more year. If there is one thing that is consistent within this organization, it is the inclination to stick with the designed plan no matter how abysmal the failure of said plan.

Listening to him after the game, I really don't know if he knows his team is 1-4.

Might explain how this team plays with no sense of urgency.

could it be that now we understand why he hasn't ever been awarded a HC job till Richardson gave him one even though he has had many interviews?

How long until the Kooch gets Riveraified like Adams did and starts to suck?

"Son, your just a tad too aggressive out there. Relax and just let stuff happn around you. Them just do what you can."
