As a critic of Rivera, I believe he deserves one more year
Posted 20 December 2012 - 08:17 PM
9 of these 11 teams went on to have 10+ (all of them at least .500) win seasons in year 3. On that note I don't see why we don't give rivera a shot, especially since the team haven't given up on him yet.
Granted with only 3 of those teams having winning seasons in Year 4 gives us reason to despair.

JR will not fire Rivera is we start losing again. This is my main issue keeping Rivera, JR holds on much too long, and money influences his decisions as well. Another losing season with the same staff will be 10x worse than with a new one, and could set Cam back another year. You have to be sure Rivera can pull it out next year, it has to be a must or we lose a year of teaching Cam wha he needs to know and we also lose Cam's interest in staying here. I don't see Cam staying where he can't win, I just don't see it.
Have no problem keeping Rivera until next year but the problem is I know that will likley mean keeping him that whole year no matter what.

Around this time next year we'll be going through the same process. We might ease in as a wildcard, but get put out
Get a coach that you feel, honestly truly feel will lead us to the SB

Ron did not show any intention of changing his approach prior to that event.
Ron is also missing in action when it comes to in game decisions.
He demonstrates a lack of ability to recognize and react as quickly as opposing coaches to mismatches on the field of play.
A Field General, he is not.
What has he done that makes anyone believe this guy can lead us to the promised land?

Would like to see us finish strong, but if we poo the bed these last two games I will be on the fire him bandwagon. If we play like we have the last several game (sans the KC game) I will be more open to giving him the first half of next season.

I just don't want to get excited another year but if he wins the next 2 games, I might change my mind. New Orleans may still have something to play for so if we can ruin their play off chances then things will definitely look up. If we can't ruin play off runs then f it.
