Dont Check My Chicken

Rivera identifies himself as the problem

I was going to say this ^.

Nakamura proved earlier in that game he had absolutely zero ball skills on the td roddy white caught earlier. Sure nakamura had a pick in the game, but just about anyone could have picked that ball in that position.

When we had them pinned deep like that we should have had coverage personnel in, especially at safety. Nakamura completely lacks athleticism, speed and ball skills, these are 3 things Martin has. Makes no sense why martin was not in on the play.

yep. it was no secret that nakamura was lacking in the coverage department. so why put him on the field on obvious passing downs in the first place, esp. in that situation?

sure, it was nakamura's fault that he didn't make the play, but it was a play/situation that he shouldn't have been involved in to begin with.

but even getting to that point was on the coaching staff. it was 4th and 1. atlanta's strength was it's offense, esp. in clutch situations. it's weakness, esp. that day, was the D which we had been scoring on a good bit. so what do you do? you give it to the offense.

i'm sorry...but a punt is a bad play in short yardage situations. it's just weak and i hope the next coaching staff has some balls.

the one that had gamble rushing in on that play instead of...i don't know...covering a receiver?

The neg was accidental.

And I've always kind of thought if a guy is out of position once, it's his fault. If he out of position the whole game, it's the coach's fault.

Kind of like norman playing 9 yards off all game every game?

I have a very simple formula that allows me to know when it's a coaching mistake versus a player mistake:

If, within 5 seconds after the snap of the ball, I'm shouting at the TV, "What he fug is that! Who the fug is coming up with this poo?" That's my clue it's coaching and not player.

Can you imagine the chaos if Rivera somehow weren't fired?! It would be a tough season to stomach next year- tougher than this one probably.

the right play call was on...........the players didn't execute.

I'll say it once again..........you can't make chicken salad out of chicken sh*t.

may have been the right play call...but for the wrong personnel.

if you've for a DB that is a midget and sucks in coverage, don't put him on the field in a situation where he has to cover a WR a foot taller than he is in a clutch situation that will likely decide the game. THAT is a coaching error. when you put chicken poo on the field, you have to take responsibility for it tasting like chicken poo instead of chicken salad.

or something like that.

I understand you have a problem with RR.but in this case you are wrong.

the player should have made the play and didn't. period end of discussion.

Let me ask you a question.....when Godfrey pulled the pick-6 on Moleman was that coaching,

playcalling or just a player making a play?

The point is that the player on the field was widely known to be incapable of making the play.

The last few games, Nakamura has only been in the game on running downs, because it finally became obvious to Rivera that he sucks in pass coverage.

it should have been obvious to him from week 3 like it was to everyone else. Rivera had the better player sitting on the bench.
