Is it me or has every thing Rivera done been a knee jerk response to 1 event in a game the week before?

i assume you're talking about murphy?

one even? maybe the one straw that broke the camel's back.

the writing had been on the wall for some time.

frankly i'm only amazed that it took this long to happen.

Remember when everyone was down on Jeff Rodgers? Well now he's in Denver where they actually have players and he's had top notch special teams both years he's been with them.

no I'm saying he doesnt see a problem until its exposed. Then and only then he tries to fix it.

how long has he had the power to do that?

it's not like this was the first return for a TD on his squad.

Yep.

My statement was not a loaded one, just something I noticed while watching the game and looked into it out of curiosity..

i think our special teams has sucked for years because it wasn't considered an important part of what goes on.

the FO with fox was more than fine just putting whatever non-starter they could in STs. they kind of viewed it as a holding place for guys without a lot of PT.

at least in the last couple years they've tried to upgrade, esp. heading into this year. they had some proven ST aces and still sucked. that's a coaching problem.

i think elway has been running the show in denver and has put together a team that can basically run and coach itself.

This week, we have to protect Medlock's feelings and try not to ruin the momentum of the game by kicking field goals.

When Richard Rodgers was hired, Murphy should have been concerned about is job security... so Rivera had been hedging his bet on Murphy for a while, this is far from a knee-jerk reaction.

Has to deflect blame somewhere....

Murphy get fired bc of a punt return.....one in which Rivera sent into the league requesting an explanation of the missed blocks in the back and fumble out of the endzone?

Rivera also is the one dictating talent on ST. Adams out is a Rivera move.
