He's saying they fire RR and bring him back as the DC.....

Oh, never mind then. I was saying keep Rivera ass the HC if we make it to 7-9, or 8-8 (10-6?!?!?!). Anything above 6-10 is after all improvement. Yeah, RR should have had a sit down with Chud about the read option about 3 weeks sooner, but as long as our record is heading in the right direction, I think it'd be pretty hard to let Rivera and his staff go.

I'm not saying they should do that. I'm saying its not out of the realm of possibilities if he ends up with a better record than last year and the players want him. Really all depends on who we get at GM. I'm not endorsing the idea.

Sorry should of worded it differently...but he thought you meant to keep him as the HC, with that record and that's not what you were eluding too.

Its a lot harder to be the HDIC to a coordinator. Plus Meeks left and didn't get a DC job offer and came back for the lesser job. Probably to best offer he had. He stayed one season and he was gone. The ONLY way and I mean ONLY way I could see RR coming back as the DC, is if he can 't find a job anywhere else. And that includes small jobs, like LB coach or D-line coach.

People need to get the RR demotion idea out of their heads. First, has that ever even happened? And second, imagine your boss fires you tomorrow, but then asks you to stick around for a lesser job/less pay...you're doing it? Get real.

Didn't something very similar happen to Jim Zorn when he was the Redskins coach?

Seems like he was relieved of his head coaching duties and was given a really silly title and demotion.

Regardless of what our record is at the end of the year, I'd say tht Rivera needs to go. He's not a good HC, he's far too passive and has done a poor job until pressured. We should've been playing this way on defense all year and our offense should've picked up where we left off last year, not change the entire scheme. But when it's all said and done, our new GM will decide.
