Would the following things make you change your mind about axing Ron...

1) the team goes on an extended winning streak, finishes at .500
2)Ron shows more emotion on the sidelines, maybe accidentally spits on some players while screaming at them...
3)Ron shelves the ludicrous read option and our backs start earning those millions...

Just a few off the top of my head... am sure you guys can add some of your own

You guys kill me with "more emotion on the sidelines". Ever gotten a look at Belichick? Who gives a poo about that. All that matters is winning.

And to be honest I think that is the only thing that will keep a New GM from coming in and keeping him. New GM typically wants his own guys. I don't see us getting to a 7-9/8-8 or better, but if it happens, then we're talking. Until then it doesn't really matter.

Yes, but I have better odds of having a threesome with Kate Upton and that new huddle kitten zod's never going to show us.

He's earned my trust back after having watched his last two pressers. The one today was more telling. The true test comes Sunday, and if we can suddenly find ourselves offensively against the League's best Defense... Well then... I think that it will speak for itself

Absolutely. I don't need to see him screaming or spitting. I want to see the team look prepared. I want to see him show effective clock management. I want to see good adjustments week to week.

There are many things I like about Ron and it would be great to see him succeed. Based on what we've seen so far though, it is not highly likely that he can improve enough in 10 games to save his job. He just has not been well prepared in his former stints to excel as a HC in this league.

I have some friendly advice for you. Don't trust his presser's, your setting yourself up for major dissapointment.

I've got news for you, don't expect more than 5 read option plays the entire game.

If he has better clock management and takes us above 500 then yeah definitely.

To quote Al Davis, "Just win baby, win."

Win enough games and I'll come around to Rivera's way of thinking.
