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.

We destroy the Raiders, JR at that point thinks winning 3 in a row is "trending up" but we lose to the Saints and get a pass because "its ok, the Saints are tough in the dome anyway" so we get a free pass and finish 6-10 yet again and Rivera stays.

I cannot stress how important it is we ONLY keep Rivera if we go 7-9. Last year on Christmas eve we destroyed a 4 win Bucs team then got destroyed in New Orleans and ended up 6-10. If we lose to the Saints, all that will say is we havent improved whatsoever, it will just mean we are a middle of the pack, below average 6-10 team that can pull off an upset on occasion and destroy terrible teams but stuck in stand still and wont be elite.

I dont care how tough the Saints are in the dome, you think its unfair to have a HC's fate hinge on one single game? Tough luck! Ron should have thought of that before we lost 9 games. If we lose to the Saints, Ron needs to go no question.

The Saints game will be Ron's final exam. His final test, just like in High School, you fail the test you fail the year. If we beat the Saints that will show a true sign we have taken the next step, if we lose. That means 0 progress has been made and Ron fails.



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

But the CHIN is IN !!

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
