Rivera is so conservative he makes John Fox look like Michael Moore.

I think Rivera simply isn't head coach material in terms of strategic thinking. It doesn't mean he is not smart. It's just not everyone's strong point.

I would not mind having him as a DC, having one third of the responsibilities. Head coaching is just too much for him to handle.

But, technically Zod, it appears that he still only has 1/3 of the responsibilities even now as a HC. From pressers and comments he's made, it appears he gives the coordinators full autonomy in games, so all he is managing is timeouts and other situationals, but he doesn't oversee playcalling at all.

He seems to do a lot less than most HCs, so he shouldn't be making the mistakes he's making.

I hate that we were the team that decided to give him his chance considering 9 others didn't, and for good reason - he's in over his head.

He took the blame for playing soft coverage on the final drive, saying "I wanted to keep them in front of us". This seems to imply that he doesn't exactly give his coordinators exactly full autonomy.

You're right, I should've said 'up until this game.' Wouldn't you agree his comments post game prior to yesterday suggested he did give them full autonomy?

Great thread and point Marguide... I see that in a lot of the things that have gone on this season... all of those you mentioned, plus things like not going for it on 4th and 1 in ATL and many, many other decisions. Protecting your players from making mistakes is one thing... completely not trusting them to earn their paycheck when the game is on the line is something else entirely.

Yeah, I think he definitely did to start the season. I believe he's slowly took more control of play calling as the season has progressed. He's stated as much.
