This whole season was a giant step in the wrong direction. I look back and see a more competitive team last year then I do this year. The Offense has been a shadow of itself, and the defense has been bad bad bad. Letting Brady Quinn have a +100 QB rating is a testament of how bad they are.

Stop spending money on players.... And buy some coaches!! I want the CHIN.. I wanna WIN

Well the defense is ranked in the top half the league this year...

But the CHIN is IN !!

Losing to the Saints is unacceptable, even beating them Rivera should not be safe. Records do matter when your core and QB are there in place and you've used all your cap. Nothing left but to win.

Losing to the Chiefs should have been unacceptable too, as well as the Tampa Bay choke job. I'm not happy with the body of work, and getting amped up to beat an Atlanta team or finishing out a meaningless string of late-season games with nothing on the line but pride and some players job security doesn't do it for me.

We need to make a change. Someone who knows how to be an NFL head coach, not someone on another learning curve.

What signs of brilliance has Ron exhibited in the last two years exactly?

Our teams were less well prepared than the opposition going into every game for the first half of this season, other than for the coachless Saints.

It seems the only reason our "offensive" offensive approach was changed was because JR had a "Come to Jesus" meeting with Ron after Marty was terminated.

Ron did not show any intention of changing his approach prior to that event. Quick on the uptake, Ron is not.

Nice guy, given time, Ron might eventually become an average Head Coach.

No reason, based on what we have seen so far, to expect anything more than that.

If we go 7-9 he's actually doing us a disservice, because we'd be drafting out of the top 11.

Well I hope we lost both so we can get rid of Rivera and draft in the top 10

Sounds like a win to me

Dont care how we finish.

Point is there are upgrades out there over Ron Rivera.

Agree with this. He has his chances. Should have went for it on 4th and 1 in Atlanta and won the game. Our season went down the shitter with that fail. Or the Bucs collapse. Or the bears collapse. This guy is a choker

I don't know how after letting...

Andre Brown rush for 113 yards and 2 TD

Bardy Quinn throw 2 bombs on us and 200 yards

Bryce Brown literally bent us over and had his way with us for 178 yards and 2 TDs

I'm sure I could list more but Im afraid the list will be to long

I start licking my chops when ever my fantasy running back play against the panthers....

Speaking of fantasy, Marcel Reece is on waivers. I bet the guy who picks him up will be happy with his performance this week.. hint hint

"If winning late season games was all that mattered, Matt Moore would be a starting QB."

We shat the bed early and were eliminated from playoff contention by week 10. And you want that guy steering the ship for another year? I don't care how we finish the season. These wins against mediocre teams with the pressure of a playoff push long forgotton mean nothing.

What I fear is for JR to sense the RR is trending upwards after winning out this season, Ron stays, then he goes back to playing "safe ball" next season when the games start to matter again... then we are yet another year from seeing any improvement.

I was looking forward to this season more than ever before and to have to endure this disappointment again next season would be too much!

I fear subjecting our young, developing QB to his fourth offense in five years. I fear being too hasty in making a decision and losing a guy that the players obviously respect and has shown that he can get them to play well. I fear a lack of patience at the HC spot will only hold the team back as we develop a revolving door with our staffs.

I actually think we'll beat the Raiders and then lose to the Saints. Even if that is the case I think Rivera should be given another season.

Not to mention, Rivera wasn't on the field trying to pressure or disrupt Brady Quinn. Fact is, they played a very inspired game in the wake of a tragedy and played almost flawlessly. Brady Quinn included. I'm more impressed with what we did against RGIII, Matt Ryan, Jay Cutler, Tony Romo than I am worried about what happened at KC.

Anyone who thinks that all that matters is whether we go 7-9 versus 6-10 and that one game makes all the difference is naive and that is being kind because it is the holidays. As I said, overall record and wins and losses are the only stat that matters but 1 win either way is really not a big deal. And no that isn't contradictory. A team that is 6-10 or 7-9 are frankly both losing squads. Both records show you lost more than you won. And a team that is 11-5 is a better team based on the season. Could a better team lose to a worse team on any given Sunday, yes. But lets be real here, are we a better team than Atlanta because we beat them the last time we played them?? The answer is no. We were better that day but overall they are much better.

As for how does Richardson and the GM, when they are hired, decide what to do with Rivera? They have to make decisions based on who is going to be the best going forward. Coaches get fired not because their team won or lost a certain amount of games but based on whether they are best guy for the job moving forward or whether a change is needed.
