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
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.
