A WHOLE PIE!

This is something that has been consistent since the end of last year. Ron's poor decision making is always due to not trusting the players. Cases in point from today:

1) Ron doesn't try a 51 yard field goal to end the half because he didn't trust Medlock to make it (even though we had nothing to lose if he missed it)

2) The strategy today on kick offs and punts because he didn't trust the ST's to make a tackle. We were lucky to even be in the game, putting the D on the field with the Bears at the 40 or better on multiple drives, and having the O starting out inside the 15 consistently. Then Nortman shanks the punt trying to punt the ball out of bounds. It would have been hard for Hester to have a greater impact on the game today than he did without even touching the ball.

3) Telling the D to play soft zone at the end allowing the Bears to methodically march down the field without resistance.

This is a recurring theme, and one I've complained about going back to last year. Ron tries to coach around perceived weaknesses, and it has bitten him in the butt more than it has succeeded. And it's a double whammy, because the players get the message as well that they aren't trusted to do their jobs.

Ron's problem is fear of failure, and I see no indication that he has changed in this regard since the day he was hired.

lack of round things, cajoles...etc. etc.

He seems like such a stand up nice guy but its glaringly obvious he can't excel at HC in the big league

but we felt it was better to make them beat us schematically


He'll be coaching LB's in the UFL if he keeps this up.

Why bother discussing his deficiencies. We already know he sucks at pretty much his whole job. Now fire him.

The thing that really got me today is how much he let Hester effect us. The equivalent in the Giants game would've been to have 3 guys block Pierre-Paul all game while giving up sack after sack to other players.

I honestly think Hester was the Bears' MVP today.

This team plays and is coached like they are afraid to lose the game so much that they let the other team just go win it.

Ron Rivera didn't fumble & blow the Atlanta game.

Ron Rivera didn't make a horrible pass to a wide open TE to win the Seattle game.

Rivera sucks, but if you can blame him for losses then Cam should be held responsible also.

For Smittyceo, this thread was started to talk about Rivera's decisions. There are maybe 6 other bash Cam threads, so I think that's adequately covered elsewhere.

Cam has made costly mistakes, Smitty has made costly mistakes. But guess fuging what? This thread isn't about them.

Ron Cocksucker Rivera has made a costly, potential game losing, mistake in EVERY GAME this year. So fuging what if a player made a mistake that cost a game, they are players, they are going to make a mistake, but when your motherfuging coach is making a game flushing mistake EVERY GAME then he fuging sucks and needs to be replaced. He's the fuging coach, he's not supposed to be one of the reasons that we lose EVERY TIME.

Sure a coach might blow a decision or a call and cost a game here and there, but they aren't supposed to be one of the bullets on the list when you go over the reasons that you lost the game, EVERY fuging WEEK.
