but i thought you were hellbent on rivera having a 3rd year?
hellbent? no. thanks for the exaggeration, tho.
i don't want he team to lose. i don't want the team to go thru another overhaul. i want rivera (just because he's the current HC) to be given a third year to work things out....but that's if there's some amount of progress.
if there's a regression (and it looks like there is) or no move forward then we need to move on.
changing the HC staff might result in a quick turnaround, but there is by no means any gaurantee of one and it wil most likely result in another rebuilding "process". another new system to be learned on both sides of the ball isn't a good thing.
it might be the best thing, tho.
i'm not a fan of turnover within an organization but i know sometimes it's needed.
two turnovers within 3 years is something that frustrates me and could have a very negative impact on the overall team.
firing rivera should be the last resort and if it can be avoided, i think it should. unfortunately i don't think it can be avoided.
