Can Rivera pull this off or is this just going to be a painful process?

On the surface I see the change from last year to this as much about coaching as about talent especially on offense.I guess that begs the question of how does Rivera and Chud keep there jobs?

Does JR buy into Rivera's suggestion of not having the talent or as Cam has stated the play calling?Or can he not stomach the payout of the contracts of his existing coaches?

The losing attitude that some have suggested really does not answer the regression from one the most productive offenses to one of the worst except we now have an offense that no one believes in?.

To me we are missing part of the story as to what happened. I get it Hurney has had ample time to field competitive players at each position and anyone looking at our secondary must agree he failed.But what does that have to do with the offense regression? Why the timing? What has happened behind closed doors that we do not know?

I know one thing and that is most of this does not make sense to me.

Why would anyone think Rivera can pull anything off? He's shown us very little in almost a season and a half.

Then why is he still the coach if JR shared these views? I agree with your statement but he is still here

Even if he pulls it off the rest of the season will be like a colonoscopy: diving into a sh*thole but we manage to stay numb through it all.

JR may share these views. If he does, he is going to let the new GM bring in his guy.

Just go ahead and fire Chud now. If there is an amazing turnaround Rivera might just get a second chance.

I think 22 games into his NFL coaching career Rivera is what he is and that's not a very good head coach. There are lots of failed head coaches who are good coordinators (wade Phillips, mike Nolan, Dom capers to name a few). Some guys just aren't cut out to lead the team and Rivera is probably of that mold. Time to move on from this mistake.

I give Ron a 5% chance to pull off a miracle and save his job.

No, this season is lost. Ron Rivera is just clueless. I don't see him as being intelligent, probably just took too many hits to the head during his playing career. He's unable to assess what's going on during the game and make adjustments. His shining moment was when he called timeout right before halftime, allowing the Saints to kick a field goal. The Saints ended up winning by three. After that I knew Rivera was a horrible coach but I thought he might be able to skirt by on Cam Newton's coattails. But he just managed to mess that up too.
