You don't fire a Super Bowl winning coach the next season.


Technically, he resigned...but a certain Jimmy Johnson comes to mind

Some coach will love the fact that he has Cam as a qb...

New Gm and New coach = playoffs 2013

JR is stubborn enough to keep rivera around even with a new GM.

Hell, even Seifert got 3 years. You clowns better get used to the idea of RR coaching this team next year. It's happening.

You're falling for the trap. You have to keep in mind Rivera actually sacrificed this season in an attempt to look like a football genius. (Letting Cam be our only offensive weapon, and everyone else fall where they may) Not too mention he gave very limited reps to Kuechly, started Nakamura when he showed nothing in the preseason, and held back guys like Joe Adams and David Gettis as of late. This guy stinks.

We could have been in the playoffs this year if it weren't for his goof up play calling that cost us several games. (Falcons, Bears, Cowboys, Bucs, Seahawks) Do we really want this coach to be here another year?


That whole premise is half baked. We actually were installing the defense and offense for the first time this year really. What we installed last year was on the fly and based on what the players could pick up as they went. Plus on defense we had too many injuries to really have a cohesive attack. What you have seen in the last few games is what McDermott and Rivera can do on defense with players who are coached up and a MLB who is finally hitting his stride.

On offense Chud got too cute and did screw up which he has corrected for the most part.

As for Rivera screwing up with some poor calls, that is true. But you assume that he learned nothing from it and would do it again and that is where you are not watching. Look at how aggressive they were on offense at the end of the game the past 2 games. and look how they were more aggressive on defense.
What i want is a coach who can learn and adjust as he goes and Rivera is doing that. If they do well the rest of the way you would be getting rid of a coach who is finally figuring it out and who is now actually worth keeping, not the same guy who screwed up earlier in the year. This is his first gig, he is still learning the ropes. Lately he seems to be getting it.

Why is the Seahawks' score over the Cardinals in the thread title?

falcons loss- cam fumbles on 3rd n 2 n Naka gives up bomb. Bears loss- Steve falls in route resulting in a pick 6. I actually forgot which game Cam missed hartstock of barnidge on 4th and goal.... Point is we just didnt execute well enough in some games. Yes playcalling has been bad but it has certainly gotten better over the last 3 weeks

New GM = New coach



Yep.

That is the bargain.

You get to have a physically talented team with an exceptional QB. There will be decent draft position, and you get to bring in whoever you want at Head Coach.

This team is in prime position to attract some talent. Someone who can come in and help deliver Old Man Richardson a ring before he is gone.

He didn't just make mistakes in the first part of the year and for most of the season, he willingly didn't do anything about it until Hurney got fired. Some of the moves he made were just plain ridiculous. You got two good running backs, and they barely touch the ball. You start Nakamura when he didn't deserve it. (Not that Sherrod showed great improvement in the pre-season, but he did play a little better than Haruki) He started Kuechly on the outside and only had him in the game for 20% or less on defense. Then he benched our best return man for most of the season. All these things contributed to our terrible record, not because we have a bad team.

Plus, they let Cam hang out to dry for most of the season, and failed to develop him fully as a throwing QB. (They encouraged him to use his athletics, because that was a main part of our offense. The one man show they wanted to implement.) They didn't let him audible. So I can deal with a young coach learning how to do things. What I refuse to put up with is a coach making dumb decisions, to the point of sabotaging.
