Loss to Eagles=Rivera Gone

37 posts in this topic

This reminds me of the Packers vs. Seahawks, and the whole replacement refs situation. After watching all the things that led up to that game (Specifically the Patriots/Ravens SNF game, where Belichick manhandled one of the replacements), I said to myself 'Something radical needs to happen to force the NFL to get the regulars back in there'. As the game wore on and was about to wrap up, I figured we would have to wait another week or so for that big controversial call to force the NFL's hand. Then on the very last play, Wilson's game winning interception, I shouted with joy and said within myself 'That's it!!!'

So I'm getting that feeling again. Only this time, the ones that will be gone, is Rivera and his deputy "Chud the dud".

See you get what I'm saying. I'm not saying fire Rivera if we lose one more game because the season is over. This isn't just another game is playing against a terrible rookie qb with no McCoy on Monday night football. Loosing this game would be embarrassing.

Just like that Seattle greenbay game it would be so horrible you have to do something

Meaning people who have followed the team wouldn't be expecting the firing of the HC before season end.

What did firing Hurney in the middle of the season accomplish?

More time to find a new one, hire a consultant(accorsi) and give fans hope for the future maybe? Oh and if hurney were still here i would think this forum would be worse than ever as well.

You missed my post where I stated why I felt like Ron Rivera being fired after the season is the right move and that he wouldn't and shouldn't be fired during the season.

My point in this post is due to the Eagles injuries, missing their two most important players, and due to the fact of the game being played on Monday night football these circumstances raises the stakes a little bit.

I've been following this team for years and the Hurney firing proved one thing and that's the notion that anything can happen.

I'd like to see how Fletcher Cox performs. Haven't heard squat about him this year. Maybe he's hurt I dunno...

Ya fire Rivera already. Come onnnn

It gave the team time to research and hire the best GM before the end of the season....the off season is the time when a good GM makes a difference.

It would also be very wise to have the GM in place before hiring a new coach.

The ONLY reason you would fire him now is if you really believed someone on your staff was a viable candidate. Chud and McD should not even be mentioned as possibilities.

So, based on a GM search and crappy coordinators, the smart thing to do us ride this season out with Rivera and then move on.

Not going to happen. We are going 4-12 in one shape or form and he will be fired soon after the final game

They need the new GM in place to hire a new coach.

Rivera will finish the season and we will have 4 wins. We will pick top 3 and next year there will be a new GM and a brand new coaching staff. That's it. Rivera will not be retained. If he thinks he might save his job with a win streak in the last 3 or 4 games, I highly doubt it. He does have one more year, but the losing culture on this team has got to be eradicated and he's done nothing to convince me he has an answer.

JR just isn't going to axe the guy. That's not his style. Besides...what's the worst that could happen? We don't win any more games and virtually guarantee a franchise pick. Big deal.

However, if JR doesn't put a viable product out there on the field within 3 years, this franchise could dry up. Seriously. It's time to put up or shut up for this team. The culture of losing will not be tolerated by fans indefinitely. 4 winning seasons in 17 is pathetic.

If this next GM and HC don't build a winner, I think the gig will be up. I definitely don't want that to happen, but LA sure does.
