Rivera's Doghouse is Killing Us

41 posts in this topic

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.

I think Martin does a much better job against Roddy White than Naka, if only for the first play of their game winning drive. That was a punt pass that should at the very least been knocked down. Martin makes that play easily.

So, you're satisfied with Armanti, Pilares and Munnerlyn at returns? I think Holliday and Hester showed us the importance of having a legitimate threat at returner can do for you. Holliday ran one back, but Hester gave Chicago great field position all day while barely touching the ball.

And I don't care how you spin it, Gettis is a major upgrade over Murphy. I think he forces defenses to at least account for him because of his speed. That will allow more one on one coverages for Smitty. And the more of that you see, the better chance this team has of winning.

But maybe you're right. maybe we don't win any more games. But at the very least, we develop talent that can contribute in the near future in positions of need.

Gonna go ahead and say Rivera's lack of skills as a HC are what is killing us.

yep.

who he has in his doghouse has a nominal effect on the outcome of the games or the overall record.

I just don't think he's a very good head coach. I like to look at Chicago and how Lovie Smith finally put his foot down when Mike Martz was the OC and told him "RUN THE FOOTBALL". I don't see Rivera doing anything like that, his decision making as a whole is off.

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.

Nakamura starting over Martin bothered me more than any other lineup decision. No fan deserves to be punished with Naka's terrible play. He's screws up just like Martin, but without any of his physical talent.

I'd have AE returning kicks over Adams all day. AE understands that our STs is terrible and he knows what to do, get the fvck up field, north and south, make your one cut and get what you can. Adams still thinks he's in college and has time to make several moves and do a dance. Sure if we had amazing blocking, then you could try your prime time stuff, but this team eats. Poor Captain is wearing down.

How about less yelling at Gettis and more yelling at Cam and our O-line? The actual reason we're losing.

OMG someone else thinking that AE is a good return man. Look at his stats. There’s a reason why Captain was put in at punt return over him after the benching of Adams. AE has somewhere around 5 yard return average over his career. Good god. Stop this people, yes he was great in college, most players in the NFL were great in college that does not mean they are worth dookie in the NFL.

His HR avg is not much better either.
