If RR gets poocanned, what happens to the Defense?

If the team keeps playing like they have been, I think Rivera stays.

Our problem this year is we couldn't have fired RR had Jerry wanted to, as there was no good candidate on the staff to serve as an interim.
Keep RR's feet to the fire. I love the D, but the O and the game management have to improve.

Defense is playing well, got it. 4 weeks seems to be a decent gauge but for me I want to see where we stand as a defense as a whole. Game 1 to 16.
Rivera has made some really bad decisions but he is also a newbie Head Coach. Though he has said he backs his decisions. I would bet if he had the opportunity to do it over he would have done it differently.
I am of the belief that McDermott has as much to do with the defense as Rivera. Firing Rivera and Keeping McDermott would be OK with me.

I love me some RR and McD right now and B. Murphy isn't doing bad.
Chud.......................that's a whole nother story.
I really think the players have bought into his system on D and are rocking it.
I want to see these guys with another year under RR.

Losing him would worry me most of all because we just had such an awesome draft and I feel like he had a big hand in that. If we can keep grabbing guys like Alexander and Norman in the later rounds then we could really start building something great here. Like people have said, he's an evaluator type and that's huge for us.
Dump Chud, hire Norv as OC, and send Ron to coaching camp with Belichick this summer.

yeah, that's a recipe for success.
it might be necessary if they haven't turned things around, but i don't like it.
instability is never good for a team. having to keep learning new schemes is bad as well. it might be something that they can pick up and make successful right away, but more than likely the learning curve will end up taking another 2+ years to grasp.
one thing that's obvious around here, theres no patience and if there's any struggle to grasp or adapt to the new system or if there is any struggle at all, fans will start bitching and calling for the new coaches head.
we can either stick with a system and coaching staff and allow the players to grow in it or keep on flip flopping systems and coaching staffs until we find one that can bring immediate success.

Rivera, of course will need to show drastic improvement, and win pivotal games down the stretch, which I think he can do. If we beat the broncos this week, I believe fan morale, team morale, and JR morale, will all be at a peak.. it would be hard not to be endorsing a 3rd year for RR at that point.

When was the last time a new GM of a losing team didn't go out and hire a new coach?
What he said.
If we're really going to turn a corner and hire a good GM, you let him choose if he wants Rivera or to grab someone else.
He will probably want someone else.
