This isn't the Raiders, we dont' give up on improving coaches in just 2 years of his first years as a Head Coach at any level. You may think they will be trying to get a GM that wants a new coach, but consider they may just want a GM that reflects Rivera wishes for personel(ie not having 30 LBs and RBs).

I don't understand where you're coming from.

Time and time again he has proven that he's terrible in late game, close score situations. That's where coaches truly earn their checks. Rivera has repeatedly failed in those situations.

Maybe it's because we watched good ole Ron along with his buddy Chud throw away our season before the bye week.

If JR hadn't been so pissed off that he fired Hurney, I don't have a doubt in my mind we would have continued running the same crap system all year.

That's why.

It is funny how polarized so many people are about Rivera. Regardless of whether he stays or goes, the team is finally developing chemistry with backups making great plays. Reminds me a lot of 2004 again. Problem is that I seem to remember saying that last year as well.

He just may have given himself one more year by the skin of his teeth...unless he blows it against the Raiders and the Saints.

I've been critical of his performance this year but if he can pull it off and win the rest of the season, I'd be comfortable with him staying another year. At the very least it gives the team some continuity, especially when the team is playing hard for him now.

I'd say yes if we had not fired Hurney. The new GM will acknowledge that the same thing happened last year. A new HC is coming.

I just hope Jerry puts the decision in the hands of the next GM and let's Accorsi do his thing in terms of finding that GM.

Is there any reason not to believe Rivera can bring the Defense to the highest level? Acknowledging Rivera has made terrible game decisions is something I can agree with....thinking that's going to define him is something I can't accept. Development happens...these players believe in him, it's too bad some don't see how very important that is, and how special that can be.

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.

if a Team finishes very strong, like we are now, and you fire the head coach you can end up doing a lot of unneeded damage to the team.

If we blow everyone out like we have been from here out I'd say Rivera has saved his Job.

What everyone needs to look at with Rivera is that this team clearly has not given up on him, he still has this team listening to him and Playing hard. they are building camaraderie and Rivera has their attention and respect, and the players right now are playing hard for him.
