I dunno about helping his chances, and I'd still prefer to bring in another coach with a higher ceiling, but Rivera deserves credit for a good call giving Gano a chance to seal the game for us.

Holiday game for a team that is just playing for is coach going against a seemingly cupcake team. It's hard to get every player on that field ready to play for that. The OLine certainly looked like it was already home for the holidays..

Honestly though this team has a lack of *real* talent in a lot of areas.

OL, #2 WR, DB, DT

Rivera's coaching has been abysmal at some points, but it's hard to see any one doing really well with this team. We're also really young and we're starting to put it together.

A new, proven talent evaluator (if we get Ross, that is), and a young team starting to come together bodes well for next year. I'm indifferent about Rivera, he hasn't proven a lot, but the team loves him, and I dunno if a complete system change will help but whatever.

Chud needs to gtfo tho.

i'm more or less good with baby steps at this point

every little thing that helps build confidence is a step in the right direction.

There's a saying in the NFL "Better lucky than good."

And honestly? A month ago we would've lost this game.

A win is NOT a win in the normal sense when you have been out of the playoff hunt for weeks. Meaningless game

that's not surprising coming from you considering that if it was your choice we would have seen derek anderson for the entire second half.

look at the intensity level of both defenses in this game and tell me that the players don't think a win would be "a win in the normal sense"

The Saints, a team with nothing to play for are battling the Cowboys tough in OT.
We'll get the Aints best game next week in New Orleans.
Should be a good test of where we are.

You are correct.

I guess you are thrilled that Cam played the whole game, same with Smitty and DWill. I would have put some guys in at WR, RB and yes at QB. Looking ahead to next season is all we have.

I suppose you feel on top of the world that a hapless Raiders led by Matt Leinart gave us a good game.

Don't get hurt celebrating.
