So... I know I don't do this often, but you should know you can trust me. I was the one who told you Pep didn't "respect" the "coaches"... and he's no longer here. I was the one who first told you Otah would not be a Panther this year... and he is not. My family knows someone on the staff that talks to players daily. Since the players give their trust to this person, I will not name names. Hell, I shouldn't even make this thread. But screw it.

Anyway, this person gave someone in my family an interesting nuggest recently. They said that one of Rivera's approaches toward the players is going poorly. Why? According to the players themselves, Rivera chews them out with an insane amount of profanity all the time. And the players are starting to "tune him out". That ain't good, folks.

It looks like Rivera is doing things behind closed doors, while he's robotic on the field, but he can't seem to do it in a positive way yet.

Actually, im as critical of Rivera as anyone on here but I have to defend him here. Our players are pussies of this is true. Rex Ryan and Bellicheck both do the same thing. I actually have a little more respect for Rivera if thats true, our players deserve it. Not all of them but a lot of them, boo hoo. They get paid millions and they complain about profanity? Really?

i could always tell he was hiding his inner ditka with that staredown. And sounds like the players don't like getting ripped on behind close doors. They better get used to it or take it to heart because there aren't many coaches out there that won't go off on crappy playing. Or maybe it just shows the kind of attitude that sits(steve smith would call it lackadaisical) in some of the members of the team..

Well if it's all that Rivera does, it would get old and annoying.

Players have always said Rivera had a military approach....dating back to last year.

Always assumed he is hard on them during the week and behind closed doors.

Uhh every coach at every level does this. Players only tune it out if they don't respect the coach. If they don't respect him thats his fault.

Due to the hierarchy he's going to have artificial respect but he needs to do better at his own job if he want's any one to follow and believe in him.

I still stand by my thought this team needed to be gutted and the "core" redefined when Fox left. Hurney pretty much drafted Cam and maintained the core was the same.

I think the entire team could of used a different vibe. Team overall has always come across to nice and soft. Smith excluded. D especially. OL as well.

Here's the difference though (assuming the story is true)...Ryan and Bellicheck are always like that. They are rough in their public personas and rough behind closed doors.

One of the worst things a manager can do is be inconsistent. If Rivera is Mr. Good Guy when the cameras are around, and a raving maniac when they're off, that is not a formula for successful leadership.

However, no offense to the OP, but I'm taking this with a grain of salt until we know for sure.

Beason claims he respects that military style..


If NFL players cant handle it, now we know where that losing mentality comes from..

I hear ya. I just wish the coach and GM were on the same page on personnel decisions. The scary/terrible thing is that they probably were and the results have been a disaster so far.

Either way we can't change the past and now can only hope the future will be brighter by any means necessary.
