Forgive me if this was already discussed, did not see it anywhere. Was Ron calling plays at certain points in the game? First time I'd seen him holding the sheet like that.

Would explain the under center plays.

Rivera may be clueless but he's probably better than Chud

I saw him holding the sheet but didn't see his mouth move. Looked like he was reading a foreign language. I hope he was, if so it's a step in the right direction

it could have been something for defensive play calls because of Mcdem being in the booth and that was also the first time ive seen him up there and not on the sidelines

I hope so.

I also noticed McDermott up in the box instead of down on the field. Maybe he's been up there but first time I've noticed.

He probably just saw some other coach doing it and thought it looked cool.

not a pro-ron post at all, just an observation.

last year, by his own admission, rivera was more involved in the offense which is part of the reason why the defense was so crappy. he said he was going to take more of an active role in the defense since the offense seemed to be doing well.

this year the defense is better, but the offense has been rather crappy and unproductive.

correlation or coincidence?

Did he actually say he was more involved in the O last year?

I thought he was more of a let the coordinators run things type of coach. I did hear him say he was going to be more involved with the D at the beginning of the year but that does not signify that he "was more involved in the offense"

i could be wrong, i mean it happens often enough, but i think i remember him talking about being more involved there. not necessarily with the play calling, but keeping a closer eye on what was going on just because that was the side of the ball that needed the most work (after 2010) and he had a rookie QB starting.

i think he became more hands off the offense this year. at least that's just my understanding.

I don't think Ron could anymore call an offensive play than Chud could call a defensive play. If Ron was involved in actual playcalling, it was on the defensive side of the ball.

i was assuming it was more just influencing what happens and maybe even some gameplanning and making sure that they were working on the right things in practice and focusing on the right things in the classroom.

To be fair, that play worked for us on my high school football team at least 5 times for a score.

McD is always on the sideline.....only Philly this year was he in a booth. His D also poo'd the bed with him up their. Hate coaches up Ina booth.....no way to communicate with your guys and get input from the guys you are ordering around about what they are experiencing.
