I thought he just picked a bad day to have a bad day, but in the end Rivera gives us the best chance to win. I mean it is what it is, right?

Still can't get over the "didn't kick because we didn't want to risk getting the kid's head all messed up."


Agree.

Sending the kicker out in that situation is the easiest thing to do for a coach. Washes his hands of any bad coaching decision. You pay the guy millions to make 50 yard kicks, let him give it a shot. If he misses it then its on him.

he's too scared to be a good HC.

he tries to be too protective and cautious and it bites this team in the butt every time.

Yup, and Medlock missed numerous kicks at Heinz Field in the preseason in probably worse conditions (known for the swirling winds). Didn't seem to destroy him too bad, lol.

Somewhere in the world, as you typed that, a kickoff landed at the opposing 45 yard line, AGAIN.

They don't pay Medlock millions.

Joe Person@josephperson
Panthers had only 1 timeout left--& didn't use it--after burning 2 earlier in half b/c of communication issues getting players on/off field.

considering how well the defense was doing in totally dominating cutler and forte, i didn't hate that we were doing that, tbh.

i trusted our D to stop their O rather than our STs stopping hester. still, lots of very questionable calls.

he didnt kick at the end of the hlf because a miss would have hurt medlocks feelings?

LMFAO this guy has got to go.


Agreed. You can't protect a rookie kicker forever. A few weeks ago when the Rams played the Dolphins in Miami on a windy day, the Rams let their rookie kicker take some risky kicks. He missed a couple important ones, but I think he was fine the next week.

I thought it was a good thought the first 2 or 3 times, but I also can't help but imagine how it could have led to more scoring if we would've just kicked it off conventionally and let the defense keep playing. The STers did a great job bottling Hester up on PRs and they didn't have blockers in after the first few short KOs. Field position could've really helped our offense.

$1.44M I call millions but I see why some wouldn't.

By not kicking you are telling your kicker that you aren't good enough to hit a 50 yarder so we are going to just heave one up to the end zone instead. Does RR think that a lack of trust like that wouldn't "mess up the kid's head"?

Clueless!!

thought this was interesting...

josephperson
Rivera said he would have liked to have seen corners,safeties play tighter on Bears' game-winning drive, when Panthers stayed in soft zone.

o rly?

well why didn't it happen? whose fault is it?

He throws players and his coordinators under the bus every week.
