but paying jake all we did didn't effect the cap. he should never have been given that contract to begin with, esp. after that miserable excuse for a playoff game that still gives me nightmares and bad gas. the previous two seasons he missed a lot of time and i think he went on IR both years? either way...you don't give a guy a new contract like that at that stage in his career with those kind of results.
True, John Fox isn't here any longer. But Rivera is the same type of coach in a lot of ways, at least this year he has been. Last year, we looked like anything but a John Fox-coached team. This year we do. It's been like watching 2010 all over again at times. I do have to give JR credit for getting rid of Jake in spite of us having to pay him salary even while he was with another team.
rivera does seem kind of foxlike in that the team is trying to play it safe. that HAS to change now if they have any hopes. they have to play like they've got nothing to lose and just lay it all out.
