He went on to say his football philosophy is to be aggressive on both sides of the ball, as well as running a balanced offense. He said not just balanced from a run/pass perspective, but rather knowing when to run the ball, knowing when to pass the ball and attacking your opponent's weaknesses.

this is where i feel we were lied to.

i think they were pretty aggressive last year, but this year he just crapped all over that aggressive thing. he's essentially picked up where fox left off as far as aggressiveness and playing not to lose.

it's what i really expect from defensive minded coaches who tend to prefer more ball control games and not really being aggressive. i thought that rivera was a break from that mindset, but i was wrong. the organization was wrong.

we really need to go a very different direction this time around and we need to get someone with a track record of being aggressive and running an aggressive game.

So who's the next up and coming defensive coordinator for us to hire and fire?

Christ, I remember the hire. I was so excited about this team and last year further enforced that, except I didn't see a whole lot of the discipline I expected. Regardless, this team was aggressive and exciting last year offensively. They really poo the bed this year.

This Rivera experiment has been a big failure in my eyes.

I disagree. I don't see a bit of ball control in this offense. They live and die by the longer pass plays.

One thing this shows is press conferences are meaningless other than injury & starter updates from the horse's mouth

I actually came to enjoy Fox playing dodgeball with reporters more than Rivera's stupid attempts at being transparent about personel decisions.

i guess my mind was on the crucial moments of the game towards the end. the team just gets soft on both sides of the ball.

agreed that they focus too much on the long ball/big downfield play for most of the game.

I felt that they also lied about being focused on teaching and utilizing the talent that they have on the roster. A season later we're hearing that they don't have the personnel for their scheme?
