Yay for unnamed sources. Somehow I feel the need to take this with a grain of salt.

if this is true, then the only thing enlightening about this information is how soft the players really are.

This isn't an article or new piece. I'm not required to name a source. If I was 100% sure players don't read this board, I'd gladly say their name. But since they have the player's trust, I'd like to continue to let this person share info with my family every year like they have been doing casually.

makes the team sound mentally soft. based on tweets i've seen though, a lot of them are christian, and probably tune out all profanity laced dialogue.

It's not that they can't take the cursing, it's that they're tired of it. We all know how bad tuning a coach out can be. Makes me think of Vernon Davis, Moss, or T.O. sitting on a bench paying no attention to the coach talking to them.

Just got an email back from a friend of mine who covered the Bears when Rivera was the DC. Quote:

I wouldn't really believe something like that, unless he's changed a lot since here. It took a lot for Ron to ever slip into profanity. It was almost never directed at players. I do remember a '06 tiff between him and Briggs. Lance was upset with the front office and dogging it in practice. Rivera said something along the lines of "one of us fat f*cks is going to start giving a fat f*ck about practicing like a fat f*ckup." They laughed about it later. When Smith ditched Ron after the Super Bowl a lot of players, Briggs included, were dumbfounded.

or it could be that they just got too used to a coach that just chewed gum and clapped his hands a lot.

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 know what you are saying but the coaches job is to motivate players to play at the highest level.I dont care if it includes cursing them or not, the good leader will have them playing at a high level and I do not see that with Rivera. Cursing can either motivate players or turn them off but it has to be effective.

I'm not saying I believe what the OP said or not. However, I wouldn't go off of what he was like as a DC compared to him being a HC now. He's under a lot more pressure and stress now as the HC and losing compared to at Chicago as a DC and winning.

He could be at the tipping point ready to snap causing unusual for him behavior.

Heck, our beat writers would have reported the same thing. Pretty sure coaches act differently when the press is in the room.

So expect Joe Person to tweet this in 2 years? Still waiting on the news that Rivera was hired as our HC from him.

Good, somebody needs to yell at them, not that it's a surefire way to fix things

I've felt that one of the big issues with this team is a core of players accustomed to losing/mediocrity.
