I agree that he should be fired. We just don't have anyone on the staff qualified to take over. That's why the saints looked so bad at the start of the season

the saints were in better shape to turn things around because they had a solid system (on offense anyway) already in place and a solid internal core with brees kind of at the helm.

that kind of thing happens when you have the benefit of being in a system for that long and brees has years of experience in the role of a leader to draw from.

as much as i can't stand them or payton, he did set it up pretty well. they may not be as good as they have been, but they are still very dangerous and doing better than us.

we just don't have what it takes for this team to do well on it's own. as bad as things are now...it would be much worse without a committed coach.

we wouldn't be close in any game. there would be no fight. there would be no point and as much as that sounds like the kind of team pantherstrain wants because awesome draft pick or whatever...that is death to a team and players would be taking discounts to try and get away.

people just aren't being rational when looking at this picture.

Listen here...don't tell me what to do...

I want a winner. We will respect someone who delivers a good product on the field. Until then...I will continue to use my current tone....who are you?


What have you done that is so great other than whine incessantly on the Internet? You should take your tone to Rivera's face and see how long it continues.

Ron Rivera?

He was turned down 9 times.............that's 9 seperate NFL teams for a head coaching position.............before they hired him here.

What does that tell you?????

This will be his last HC job..........he will spend the rest of his career in the NFL as a defensive coordinator for another team as bad as this one is now............

That is the truth....


9 times...

A locked out offseason year 1 and now having to straighten out personnel which has been here for most of 4 seasons...from the previous coach and GM... Not a fair shake in my opinion and the defense is looking incredible the last 5 weeks minus the final drives.

Not a popular opinion but most just think a new pulse will actually give some of these players one.. The offense not scoring more than 14 points is what is essentialy what is letting the team down.

With this said I think Rivera is done here. As painful as these losses are at least the team is going all out for him...2009-2010 were the two most depressing most unwatchable football ive ever seen...Rivera came in and made football fun again in 2011 which is why everyone is so butthurt that he cannot seem to elevate the team as a whole in 12. Oh well..

Did he make football fun or did Cam make it fun? I don't think their playing for him, I think their playing for their jobs with a new gm coming in

Well Rivera allowing Cam to be Cameroon would never of happen with the prev regieme..so its not exclusive since he came here wanting an innovative offense. Chud just stopped innovating and wants to coach Auburn apparently.

Does it really matter who's the coach at this point?


Agreed... JR needs to fire dat ass! Why is he letting him ride until the season is over? Shula cant be any worse of a HC than Rivera. ...just another example of JR accepting underachieveing employees and forcing his fans to deal with the frustration of supporting a loser!
