Rivera's Doghouse is Killing Us

Does anyone remember his name? Steve Smith, or something like that. He wore #89 that year. What a piece of trash that guy was. Coach Siefert did the right thing and made sure we never saw him on the field again.

Adams fumbles in his last game: 2
Every game since: 0
Everyone is high on Halloway after his td, but he also fumbled twice, once on a return and once on a reception (going out of bounds so it didn't matter but he did drop the ball when Keek hit him).
Gettis and Martin should play.

i was just thinking about how fox could fit into that statement, only i'd take out the word tough and replace it with....i don't know...persistent. not really the best way to describe his "sticking to his guns" approach to coaching the game. do the same thing over and over and over because it worked once upon a time.
The problem is that Rivera doesn't know the difference between being tough, and being stubborn. Be tough on the players when they mess up, bench them, and get the point across. But don't be so stubborn that you never stop punishing them to the point that you're hurting the team. That's what Rivera is doing.
aside from his first couple years i never really saw him as tough. stubborn? ohhhh yeah, but not tough.
