Seriously, think about it.

Instead of putting in Sherrod Martin, who is obviously a better player than Nakamura, he continuously goes with Nakamura in his Martin's place, because Martin had a bad season last year.

Joe Adams is in the same boat. The guy is a rookie, and he fumbled twice in one game. Instead, you put in Armanti to return kicks and Captain (who has to be exhausted after playing his ass off on defense) to return punts when he obviously isn't a natural punt returner.

What about Gettis today? Sure, I think that Gettis probably has some rust on him. But, Gettis goes out for a play, then comes back to sideline and gets yelled at.

I think it'd be simpler to just say that Rivera and his staff are killing us.

Let's not forget about Goodson last year.

Riveras vag is similar to the linville gorge. On topic, Gettis was on riveras shoulder and game and was ignored in a very "stoic" manner.

I wasn't for firing Rivera mid season, I am now.

Seriously, think about it.

Instead of putting in Sherrod Martin, who is obviously a better player than Nakamura, he continuously goes with Nakamura in his Martin's place, because Martin had a bad season last year. Plus last year was his first year in this new system. I think the defense as a whole didn't really understand what to do, or how to do it. New coaches bring in different schemes as well as techniques. Couple that with the lack of an off season, and the kid had a hard time picking it up. His issues were mental, not physical. Naka has the athleticism of a middle school bus driver. Special teamer at best.

Joe Adams is in the same boat. The guy is a rookie, and he fumbled twice in one game. Instead, you put in Armanti to return kicks and Captain (who has to be exhausted after playing his ass off on defense) to return punts when he obviously isn't a natural punt returner. Adams was the best returner in college last year, actually the most exciting college returner I've seen in awhile - in the SEC no less. Give him time to develop. Take a few lumps, but when he gets there, we'll have a playmaker/game changer in the way Hester changes games. How are his miscues any different from Amini, or Nortman, or Bell (last year), or any other rookie we have starting on this team?

What about Gettis today? Sure, I think that Gettis probably has some rust on him. But, Gettis goes out for a play, then comes back to sideline and gets yelled at. This gets me more than anything. I just can not understand how your biggest WR who is also your fastest WR, with great hands, and who is one of the best route runners on the team, how can you justify not playing him.


Had to bring this post back up. It's more important than we give it credit.

I don't think having any of these players involved would win them games.....but Rivera shows all of the characteristics people didn't like about Fox but without any of the good characteristics.
