Do we keep McDermott...

61 posts in this topic

Our defense is really good right now, still does not mean it cannot be just as good or even better under a different regime.

Plus is McDermott really running the defense? Rivera was hired because of his incredibly good defenses in Chicago and San Diego, so if I were to pick which of the two were running the defense I would lean more towards Rivera than Mcdermott. Remember he was run out of Philly for blitzing too much(ala his mentor) and no being able to field a good defense despite the talent they had.

Yeah that Eagles D has sure stepped it up since McD left town.............

Probably already been mentioned, but I'm sure RR has had some effect on the defense. Would be interesting to know if it's more McDermott or RR, but either way I'm guessing it will be a complete clearing of the coaching staff.

I would hope that the new GM would consider keeping McD. I think he is an up and coming D coach. I like the aggressiveness as of late. If the D keeps it up the last 7 games I think there is a strong argument for keeping him.

it's a shame when our offense is giving up more points than they score

I wish we could hire an awesome new coach and demote Rivera to DC/ass. head coach. Not sure how much he'd like that but the defensive success lately is due to him. It started right after he said he would take over control of the defense. He has been one of the best DCs in the league for a while. I'd see if he'd be willing to do that and not take a pay cut at all. Same pay, but just focus on defense.

He took over the last drive of the Bears game that lost us the game... what are you talking about? Rivera/Chud/McDermott all need to GTFO

I find it hard to believe that most of you on hear question who is responsible for our D's improvement.

go ahead and say it with me...........Ron Rivera. Give the man the credit he deserves.

come on guys, he is working wonders with the D..........while rushing only 4.

our defense has kept us in these games

Since we don't know how much input Rivera has on McDermott's defense, I think it would be easier if we just got rid of both.

Let's not forget that we were ahead at the end of the Bears game and the D was unable to make adjustments to stop them from marching down the field.

I support McD sticking around until the new GM puts his stuff in place. Maybe even as interim HC.
