Pat Yasinskas thinks Rivera can keep his job.

I can't even go with him for four exhibition games, let alone another season.

A fired Norv Turner replacing a fired or demoted Rob Chudzinski would have some benefits.
You get someone with a more consistent record as an OC, plus a guy who can help Rivera learn the nuances of game management.
I'm not sure Chud alone is enough. Our o-line was underwhelming even when we had Kalil. I'm also not 100% sold on Shula. We could use a stronger personality in that spot.
Turner was exceptional under J. Johnson, but I worry about him under a weak RR.
Oh, and I forgot ST's. We probably need to make a change there as well.
The hell with it. Stick to the plan and replace the whole coaching staff other than maybe Washington and Sam Mills Jr.

Don't believe me? One win on MNF against a depleted Eagles team and people are already saying "Hey, maybe Rivera can save his job!!"
Now imagine if we win 3/4 of our last 5 games and finish 4-2 or 5-1 to end the season.

while they are two different situations entirely, it's worth noting that prior to the 2007 season tom coughlin was on the hot seat in new york for not really going anywhere with a franchise quarterback, accused of having lost the locker room. he came back in 2007 with a more polished demeanor as a coach and turned the team into superbowl champs.
i don't want to consider keeping rivera unless we win out, but then it'd be foolish not to at least consider it.
