I'm going to say if he went 8-8, yes. 7-9, no. He's out.

It's not just the record.

Like it or not, if they look like they're improving and finishing strong, it could do a lot to influence the decision.

They finish this game - and the rest of the season - like this, he [i]should[/i] be.

No he shouldn't...the guy has one win against a quality team and has basically cost us 8-9 games over his two years with terrible decisions. The guy is Norv Turneresque, which makes sense considering his coaching experience. He's a coordinator, not a HC.

We are finishing this year the same way we finished last year...unfortunately he has already sealed our fate with our terrible start.

Meaningless games with a bunch of backups on the field, and still winning...that's actually a positive.

I agree with this. I stated in another thread that I truly feel the players have never quit on RR.

Pretty sure it'll all be weighed by the new GM.

At this point, I won't be surprised if he gets an "audition" season.

We finished last season this strongly, and that's why everyone expected us to be a playoff team this year.

No shyt, the Bolts have quit on Turner already.

I don't even care as long as Chud gets canned.

If we keep this up, as I've said all season, Rivera deserves a third year.

Chud is the real problem.

Look at it like this...

If Cam doesn't throw into the dirt against Seattle, we'd have a shot at 8-8.
If Smitty does not slip against Chicago, we'd have a shot at 9-7.
If Cam does not fumble against Dallas, we'd have a shot at 10-6.
If Nakamura wasn't so stupid against Atlanta, we'd have a shot at 11-5.

I could go on and on. Yes, there were some stupid coaching decisions. But we have also had a lot of bad luck in terms of late screw ups by the players on the field. I say give Rivera another year if we finish strong by winning these last three. Remember, Rivera did say that he would make personnel changes if he could, Marty just would never give him the types of players he wanted.

I think the GM is going to see the potential of this team and not want to waste another year with Newton.

By making him learn a new system just as he's hitting his stride?

How would that be a positive?

I don't know that I'll ever be able to forgive Ron and Chud for the asinine play calling in the first half of the season.

How can we have confidence these guys won't decide to do the same thing next year?
