Rivera needs another year

33 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I was on the fire Rivera group until I saw what we are capable of in the first half yesterday. Rivera should keep playing as many young guys as possible the rest of the season and get them experience. I am talking about players like DJ Campbell. I just think he should get a chance to see the results of his project. And it was also so cool to see the players not quitting at this point in the season. That's character, and we'll need it when we are winning...and we will win, I have no doubt. Unless Cam pulls a Lebron on us, we will win the superbowl with him no question

There are so many young guys on this team, and the first half yesterday showed the true potential of this defense. We simply locked down the best team in the NFC without so many starters.

My only beef with coaching this year has been the playcalling and special teams. I could care less if Rivera does not show emotions and is a statue on the sideline. If we win out and keep playing like we did in the first half yesterday, dude just needs one more year

No, he should not.

You all do this poo every time after we get a rare win

i think it would almost be worth it to see guys like ^^^^^ and others freak out.

don't think it's going to happen, but...as i said before, if they have turned the corner in a big way then i wouldn't be opposed to him staying. i just don't think he's made a strong enough of a case to be retained when the new sheriff comes.

Seems folks have a bad memory around here. Rivera has been out coached too many times this year. Meaningless wins have not changed my opinion of him.

Rivera should be let go. It's important that this organization hits the reset button entirely. New GM. New Staff. New Position coaches. New philosophy. New Direction.

It's that simple. 4 winning seasons. Time to do things differently

As long as he gets is somewhere else, it is ok with me.

Rivera needs to win out, and win out convincingly the rest of the season in order to have JR consider keeping him around for one more year.

Just because he beat the worst 11-2 team in history doesn't make up for losing to the worst team so far this season. Not to mention the countless times where he's screwed up the time management and failed to adjust in the 2nd half of games.

I like the guy, but he's not head coach material.

You guys are missing the big picture...we have a solid young core that is starting to come together....

Remember the OKC thunder? They kept playing the young guys together through a rough stretch, and they now have a winning team for at least a decade

I'm starting to warm up to the idea too.

Think about it. With what other coach can we get:[list]
[*]Truly random time outs
[*]Haruki "The Iron Cheetah" Nakamura
[*]No involvement during game day unless a player needs his shoe tied or turf pulled from a face mask
[*]2.5 quarters (EVERY GAME!) of professional level football
[*]Attempting to sit on 2 point leads early into the 3rd quarter
[*]Almost a winning season, every season.
[/list]

Like I said yesterday, If Rivera had been trying different things all season & it seemed as if he'd finally found the right formula, I'd agree... but that ain't what happened.

It took the GM getting fired to even begin to go back to a formula on offense that had major success last year when that should've happened after game two. To put it another way, he not only tried to fix something that wasn't broken, not only did the fix break it, but he also stuck with what was now broken as if it were going to fix itself until the organization got bitchslapped by the owner.

So, no.

Team plays one good game out of 13 and all of a sudden Rivera is a capable head coach? Doesn't work that way.

Lose the short term memory. This is the same team that lost to the Chiefs.

I hope he is here next August just because 3 years seems like the right amount for a coach. I would like to see the new GM let him start the season on a short leash.

But no he doesn't seem like the answer and my money is on him being fired at around lunchtime on New Year's day.

So you want the GM to risk his job on somebody who hasn't proved anything? Why should the GM have Rivera on a short leash? If you have to have him on a short leash then Rivera doesn't need to be there. That is just plain and simple. We made this mistake in 2010 with Marty. I don't want JR to make this mistake again.

I just would like to see how he starts the season next year. The GM will have the call and doesn't have to risk anything. And suspect he will not.

And what will happen if Rivera sucks again next year? Will that not be another wasted year of good talent? We know what kind of talent we have, we don't need coaches who willingly make dumb decisions screwing things up for us. Just get me a competent coach, and this team can pretty much take care of itself. Rivera is a liability.

What we really need is a coach who sees Cam as a full QB. By that I mean a coach who want to teach Cam how to dissect a defense. Cam has all the physical skill in the world, he needs to be taught anticipation. (As we saw when he missed a wide open Murphy for a touchdown) Once Cam mastered anticipation and pocket awareness, tell me who will want to play against this team in that day? Rivera's not going to get that out of Cam, this dude is a defensive minded coach, and could care less about doing his job until someone makes him. (It took Hurney getting fired, outcry from fans and media, and JR's hammer getting polished before Rivera realized he was a HC)

All I want is a coach who will want the best out of Cam as a passer, and we will be in contention for the superbowl every season.

There are a few more games to see, but if its more of what we saw Sunday I'm with the OP.

To beat the Falcons down while having to play so many young players was beyond impressive.

Not nearly as bad as the waste of space your post just occupied. "Luck into winning a meaningless game"????? You mean beat a division rival who your owner dislikes after they disrespect you on their field who is trying hard to wrap up home field advantage????
