If only pro football games lasted five years instead of 3-4 hours

Then maybe Rivera could have time to adjust to the slant pass and we could beat the bears

It seems like High School teams make more adjustments than we do.

How about a coach who went 1-13 his first year, 5-9 the second, 6-8 the third, then won 4 Super Bowls?

...or we could actually have a guy like Mike Nolan. Time will tell.

I think from what we have seen, Rivera is willing to make adjustments(at least eventually) to something that isn't working. How many coaches have we had/seen that never change their philosophy and live and die by that mantra? The only thing I worry about is his ingame managment(clock and when to kick/go for it).

Answers: Remember I was talking about their first HC NFL Jobs.

Coach A: Jimmy Johnson
Coach B: Bill Belichick
Coach C: Bill Walsh
Coach D: Ron Rivera

Like I said this was a small sample. If you wanted to find others you are more than welcome. It is true some HC's never do ban out, however I think 2 years for a team might be a little to soon to call it quits on a guy. If JR decided to fire him and start over again we are more than likely looking at 2 more losing seasons before that ball starts rolling. Not always but more times than not.

Yeah, once Jerry held a gun to his head...

That doesn't really give him a check mark in the "makes adjustments" category.

My issue with Rivera isn't losing games it is HOW he is losing games. For the last year and a half Rivera has been teaching and preaching toughness. One team one fight but when the poo hits the fan he freezes and goes soft. This team should have a winning record and if the HEAD COACH practiced what he preaches we would be.

I would rather us lose to Atlanta and Chicago by saying. Well should have gotten that 1st done on 4th and inches or Too bad Metlock missed wide right in Chicago. Then to punt it away to a QB that was killing us and through a ridiculous hail mary.

The difference between RR and other coaches is the way he has lost. The Saints time out and opting to try a Hail Mary instead of a 50 yd fg are IQ, or lack thereof, decisions. I'm not saying RR is stupid, but good coaches play statistics that improve their chances to win and RR does not do this.
