...the dude did his job today. About the only thing I can think of that he could have done better was to push halliday out of bounds. But most if not all his kicks were booming. Long and far. Freaking great job.

I think the shanks come into play when they ask him to angle/directional kick, instead of booting the hell out of the ball, which is his strongest suit.

I've noticed Rivera does a lot of stupid crap to hide players deficiencies.

Having Nortman angle kick, because the kick coverage sucks.

Having Nakamura play left field, and taking him out on passing downs, because he sucks in coverage.

Having Cam throw a Hail Mary to end the half, because Medlock has a weak leg.

Running the read-option, to gain an extra blocker, because other wise our O-line can't run or pass block.

The bottom line is that, Rivera knows exactly who sucks on this team, but he chooses to do nothing about it.

He had an OK day yesterday I think. Wasn't booming them but decent I think.

But I was wondering...his last punt I think he boomed like 20 yards into the stands. I'm guessing that was on purpose to avoid any runback. Which points to how bad our coverage teams stink.

TB started on the 20 and marched down the field to tie.

Any insight? Or did he just nuke one by accident?
