When has rivera ever came out and said he or any other coach made a mistake?

One situation in specific I can think when he said he would like to see the dbs play a little tighter coverage even though the coaches obviously did not call a tighter coverage

You're right, the Special Teams Coach was fired for no apparent reason.

..and Rivera has made statements all season long regarding his incorrect decisions.

So he calls out the Unit on the team that has played the worse this season? We knew our DB's were crap last year and only added Nakamura. big whop

Special teams coach firing was way over due though, the guy was a hold over from Fox and probably should have been fired then.

did forget about him.

Rushing Statistics Player Att Yds Yds/Att Long TD

DeAngelo Williams 142 508 3.6 30 3

Cam Newton 108 647 6.0 72 7

Jonathan Stewart 93 336 3.6 21 1

MikeTolbert 39 130 3.3 13 4

This stat should be more than enough explanation as to why Rivera and this staff should be gone. Our QB is our leading rusher! The only reason D'Lo has so many carries now is because J.Stew got hurt, otherwise it would be Cam.

3 Quality HB all with less yardage than our QB. Now Cam is going to get rushing yardage from him scrambling whenever plays break down or he doesn't see anything downfield. The problem was up until about 5 weeks ago the Spread Option crap.

That alone should tell you why Rivera isn't HC material, no HC in the NFL in their right mind would run the Option as their base offense. It took the GM getting fired before Rivera and co. decided they needed to make a change. A decent HC would have canned that Base Option offense from the beginning.

The option is a nice little wrinkle to throw in your playbook, not a entire scheme to run your Offense out of.

Murphy was not a Fox holdover he was hired in 2011

Also im not sure why people on here still have the blame fox mentality. Fox is about to go to the playoffs for the second staight year since leaving the panthers 2 years ago, whilst we still arent sniffing the playoffs (and before payton manning blah blah blah he won a playoff game last year with tim freaking The Golden Calf of Bristol at qb The Golden Calf of Bristol let that sink in for a second)

8-8 is pretty impressive given his qb situation last year.

if we're strictly talking records, then firing the staff seems more obvious. However, we have seen considerable growth in the defense and in Cam. As long as we finish out playing like this, I'd like to see what he can do in a 3rd year. I'll bet we make the playoffs and everyone will start talking about how this year was the big turnaround.

We never saw the same kind of growth/development with Fox's teams. It's great to see our team get better and the young players develop into studs.
