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

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.

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.

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?

huge one there.

all this talk around building around the talent they have flew out the window this year.

just plain stupid.

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

Watching Fox answer every question yet not give an answer to any question was at least mildly entertaining. I can't even watch Rivera's pressers anymore

I wasnt impressed with Ron during the first press conference. A lot of people voiced the opinion that he seemed in command and in control. I thought he came across as nervous and unsure of himself and I think his lack of confidence spills over the most in late game situations where indecisiveness has led him to take the ultra conservative approach which usually leads to losses.

What amazes me is just how many hot up and coming coordinators are busts when they become a HC. It really is 50/50 no matter how good a corrdinator they are

Rivera looked at how Fox failed and made statements congruent with the changing of the guard in NFL strategies, and then did none of it.

-balanced attack: do whichever needed, successfully.

-teaching players, brought in "teachers" for coaches

-aggressive, never let up on the score

all something I was hoping to see with this new staff..
