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 agree except i fail to see the good characteristics of fox.

if you mean the first 3-4 year version of fox, sure...but not the one we had for the last several

imo, rivera just picked up where fox left off.

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.
