All that said, I don't want Chip Kelly.

I still think Rivera gets one more year (barring the rest of the season being an absolute disaster)

More of the same....I don't.

Games have been too close. Talent big picture hasn't been the issue. We should have a lot more wins in the Rivera era.

Overall record IMO isn't a killer if you are a new coach taking over a 2-14 club.....but how we have lost so many games simply points to many examples of poor coaching (often in game head scratchers)

Winston Moss would be pretty awesome.

Depending on how the situation goes in Indy, what about Bruce Arians? He's doing incredibly well given the current situation there, he's an offensive guy, he worked with Roethlisberger who is a similar player to Cam, and he's a part of the Steelers/Rooney tree that JR loves so much.

Wouldn't mind Kevin Greene as a DC, but I don't know how likely that actually is.

Dave Toub is also an interesting candidate, I believe.

It will be an absolute disaster. The 2012 Panthers have made it a mantra to give away the game in the 4th quarter and that pretty much means 1-15.

That said, I liked the guy from San Francisco. Seely was his name? Give me someone who's worked with Jim Harbaugh.

If you mean Brad Seely, he's worked here before. He was the ST coach under Dom Capers.

Unless we go on an absolute tear and start hearing from the players about his leadership and what he means to the team, keeping Rivera would be absolute disaster playing out before our eyes.

I'm convinced the players are not on board with his plan. How would they react to learn there would be another year with him?

Again, I'm not saying he can't turn it around, but it would be a big, big surprise if he did.

I'd be perfectly content with perry fewell. I like the guy

Agreed... At least we know the defense would be aggressive and would really get after it. I also get the feeling that he would chew some ass during the game if guys wernt performing, command respect and will be a leader of men in a way that the players will want to play for him. ...a skill I think RR's personality is sorely lacking.

I don't know about Fewell. I think he benefits from having great defensive players. I think its more of the players then his coaching.

I agree. I believe the only way Rivera keeps his job is he completely turn this team around and go on a winning streak. I just don't think its possible because Rivera has lost the players if you ask me. A dysfunctional Charles Johnson, Deangelo Williams, and a immature Cam Newton.
