He seems to have excellent "to-player" communication skills, he just doesn't seem like a good coach or make many in-game decisions as many have suspected.

fug O'Mare. RR has little intensity. Even when he gets fired up, it's only on plays that any other coach would be running up and down the sidelines on.

I don't understand the anti-Rivera rhetoric that suggests Rivera does things differently than 31 other NFL head coaches. Do you really think that for a given situation, there's the way RR does it, and then the way 31 other guys do?

Care to elaborate some?

No, I believe there is the way Rivera does it, and every other NFL coach is unique in the way they do things. They are people too, with personalities and ways they prefer to do things. Don't lump me in with the blind "clean house" crowd. I'm not just blindly hating on him because I'm upset with the play of the team, I'm making an observation that if it were me on those sidelines I'd be intense and I'd be constantly talking with my players and I'd pull my OC's and DC's heads out of their asses.

I understand where you are coming from, but to the general audience, at least sell the fact that you care through your mannerisms. The NFL is a business and entertainment outlet, everyone is watching. If you are 6-10 one season, and 1-4 the next, the "stoic-statue" look will not bolster the confidence in fans.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
