How many coaches have taken over a 2-14 team and turned it into a winner in two years?
Of course you know about Fox taking a 1-15 team to the Super Bowl in his 2nd year.
Parcells took the phins from 1-15 to 11-5 in 1 season.
Hell Raheem Morris took the Bucs from 3-13 to 10-6 within 2 years.
Mike Smith took inherited a 4-12 Falcons and got them to 11-5 and a consistent winner ever since.
Sean Payton took over the 3-13 saints and got them to 10-6 and the nfc championship in his first year and made them a consistent winner.
Bruce Arians is taking last years worst team who were also 2-14 and has them sitting at 9-5 as an interim head coach.
All of that has happened in recent history and by every team in the NFC South
Some people also want to place the blame on players for not making single game changing plays but on the flip side if Rivera had made better coaching decisions it would not have come down to just one play.
Under Rivera we are 0-7 in games decided by a touchdown or less this year and 1-12 overall in close games.He waste time outs as bad as any coach I have ever seen.He allowed Chud to cripple our offensive weapons at the beginning of the season. I just have not seen enough from him to inspire me to want to keep him and I am sure a new gm won't either.
