If RR gets poocanned, what happens to the Defense?

24 posts in this topic

Word on the street is that JR didn't want RR to begin with, and the team got off too a terrible start. Likely, the late losses to ATL and CHI are going to be too much to overcome for the playoffs this year. So, it's still quite likely that RR will get canned at the end of this year. After all, it's JR's team and he gets what he wants.

However, the D has made a dramatic turnaround in just this second year (and only half way through that). They are a top 10 D without 52 and 20, who were the consensus two best players on our D coming into the year. Our secondary is a whole bunch of 'who?' type players, and we have Morgan Freeman and BB King playing in the middle of the line. Yet, the D is playing extremely well and it's not a fluke. The staff has done a hell of a job coaching up the D to be a fantastic unit. RR has a history of making a great defense out of unknowns, and he's done it again.

Is the development of the D enough to keep RR around? Is it enough for you to want him to stay as our HC? Our D is fun to watch again. Imagine how nasty they will be with just a couple of upgrades in the secondary. Personally, I'd be happy with keeping RR and getting a new OC who's not too smart for his own good. I'm a little skittish to think of what happens to this great new D they've built if he goes.

Pie?

Well I guess it's a risk we'll have to take.

If we keep going in the direction we have been with the D improving and the offense doing more traditional power running etc and we win some damn games to close the second half of the season I would like to keep the coaching staff.

Rivera will likely be brought back if the team keeps playing like this. Said it once, I hate to see it but his players for whatever reason is playing hard for the guy. But I believe if he go 6-10 again or less, he won't be back.

If Rivera comes back next year, we need to have him on the hot seat starting game one next year. It seems he actually coaches when he got his back against the wall.

You have to let the season play out with Ron. There is promise, although with a total collapse this year I doubt he returns. Get back to 6-10, and he may have done enough. Shall have to wait and see.

Hope he gets to 6-10 and stays around for another season, to see if we can pull off 6-10 three years in a row. That type of consistent below average performance is what defines this franchise.

smh

If I was JR, Ron has to get to 8-8. Just saying. One could argue a lot of reasons for Ron staying even with 6-10.

This season is ridiculous anyways.

Seeing our D playing well and being well coached is such a breath of fresh air. We've been starved to see a well coached part of our team for so long, I hate to see it go so quickly.

prolly should have put this in the Top 5 D thread. Sorry about that. Too busy surfing porn and was a little distracted.

    • Stop me if you've heard this one... Once upon a time the USA provided weapons to "Freedom Fighter's" opposed to the Soviet Union's illegal invasion of Afghanistan. FYI:  The war drained huge amounts of life and treasure in a futile attempt to defeat a elusive resistance.  After ten years the Soviets concluded they were on a fool's errand and withdrew in humiliation.  Many believe the war hastened the fall of USSR.  I wonder if there is any lesson to be learned here for those in Washington D.C.?
    • TE George Kittle is one of those TEs not many are talking much about. He comes from the underperforming Iowa team that appears to look like they won't be worthwile for a long while, and just doesn't pop out very much in this loaded TE class. However, his Pro Day turned some heads. George Kettle may not be the guy you immediately see, but he's arguably the 2nd best blocking TE in this class. He can also catch, and has shown the ability to be a threat as a pass catcher. His real scary stuff comes with his amazing redzone performances.  Iowa may have hindered his potential, but he definitely has it. Some extra information concerning this TE: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/college/columnists/chad-leistikow/2017/03/28/george-kittle-nfl-draft-profile-improving-pro-day-hawkeyes/99724056/ Sounds like a solid TE who can be something in the NFL with some work.
