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.

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.

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.

I think JR fully intends to completely blow this team up and start from scratch. Firing Hurney at this point in the season doesnt make a lot of sense except that it sends a message to the fanbase - he sees fans abandonding ship and that has to be a major concern. It also gives RR one last chance to show if he has what it takes to be a head coach in the NFL. Even if JR wanted to fire Rivera right away, who would take the team over 7 weeks into the season? It is highly doubtful this team would get any more wins under any other coach at this point so what would firing Rivera now accomplish? Better to let this season play out with Rivera and company, start the gm/consultant search rolling and be ready to go when the season ends.

This didnt deserve its own thread but NFL sunday countdown just said that it was Hurney that hired Rivera and Richardson was against it. This is news to me...I thought Jerry had final say on everything? Jerry also said the rest of the season is Rivera's evaluation as we all know.
