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

17 posts in this topic

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.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
