I think most fans have had their fill with Rivera. His stoic face has become the poster for our poo season. Is he a good coach? Honestly, I don't really know. I think he could be a good head coach, but right now, there is so much wrong, he has to go.

I for one could care less about his stoic face. I only care about his results on the field and they speak for themselves

We have six games left....
Philadelphia
Kansas City
Atlanta
San Diego
Oakland
New Orleans

I'm only confident that we win two of those games against Philly and Kc (I was confident that we would beat Tampa Bay) For sake of good debate lets say we win four out of those last six. Sound familiar? So by being optimistic we are the same team as last year winning games late in the season when all it does is kill draft position.

The reality is that we will go 5-11 or 4-10

That is why you cant bring Mr. Rivera back. He always speaks of a missing piece with this team. He's right there is something missing with this team because its close every week.

Ill tell you what's missing and that's a Head Coach.

I agree. I don't think "stoic-ness" is a measure of success. (Tom Landry was the epitome of stoic) What I was saying is that his face has become tied to our season. Whenever you think about the meltdowns this season, you think of his unresponsive face.

It's the one thing that could've made him great, and now it makes him the joke.

coaching go round be damned/ that is exactly what losing coaches are meant to do... go round

yep. i absolutely LOATHE the idea of a coaching-go-round. i hate what this franchise has become in recent years, but that's where we are and a lot of it is we didn't start with a clean slate when we had a chance to a couple years ago. we should have gone for a new HC and a new GM. i don't think we should make that mistake again.

i'm just glad that we won't be going for the triple whammy in having to start all over with a new franchise QB.

at least i hope we don't.

I doubt a new GM/coaching staff would want a new QB. The league realizes that Cam is a fantastic talent, and any coaching staff would be glad to have Cam at QB.

However, with that being said, if some team (like a Buffalo or Kansas City) came around with some insane, why-the-hell-would-they-offer-that? trade, then I could see there being a situation where a new staff did move on.

I'd say he's right about the missing pieces, because we do have some on this team. the hardest game we have on the remainder of the schedule is Atlanta and they will have a playoff spot secured by the time we play them. New Orleans if eliminated from the playoffs before our game could be another game that becomes easier as it gets closer, all the others are winnable but really don't know how it will shake out, I'd say it's 50% we go 3-3, 30% 4-2 and 15% 5-1 and 5% we go 6-0 to finish out.

Remember this schedule is A lot easier then our first 10 games, and it is not even close.

I think if he can by some miracle pull off a 7-9 finish he would save his Job, there was a lot of people with over the top expectations, that were thinking playoffs, I said in one thread earlier before the season I thought we would go 8-8(though I thought the downfall would be the defense not offense). so really 7-9 isn't bad.

Whatever happens in the off-season, I'd say Chud has to be the first one fired.

How that man has a job still, I have no fuging idea.

agreed, but it would have to be along the lines of a ricky williams give the whole draft away for the next couple years type insane deal.

unless you are just closed minded about newton and refuse to look any deeper into the situation, you're going to know that his set back is largely there because of the coaching here this year. you're going to know that between this year and last year, this year is the fluke.

most forward thinking progressive coaches in the league would be chomping at the bit to have the prototype for the next generation of QBs as their guy for hopefully the next decade.
