Seriously you already know a new GM is coming. We had players who made it clear they didn't like the Hurney move. Don't make him feel unwelcome cause you best believe he will have his view on things. He will have his view on coaches and he'll have his view on players

Change is definitely need. 4-5 straight losing seasons. Winning games at the end after you're already under .500 and out of contention isn't acceptable period

Players didn't like that Hurney move because they like them dollar bills

The only thing Rivera can do to save his job in my eyes is to smack up a player a la Paul Silas......anything less, and he has to go.

They only talk about topics they are asked about. Saying "no comment" when asked about Ron would be more damning than addressing the topic when asked.

I prefer "I have no control on that" or honestly and I mean this... "it is what it is"

But they made it clear PUBLICLY they're not embracing a change. So if the new GM makes changes, you know that's going to rub some people off the wrong way. Bring a new coach, his attitude and his scheme may rub somebody off the wrong way

If Rivera does to the Saints* at the end of this year what those ass nuggets did to us to close out last year, then maybe, just maybe, I'd approve of him staying another year.

I really hope that of he is retained, that the new GM will watch every snap of this season and then smack RR upside the head and mandate that the offense should only use the read option sparingly. No timing routes should be called when you're sitting on a lead late in the game deep in your own territory. Wildcat is not effective. Shotgun formation is bad news when you are in danger of suffering a safety. If your OLine can't block a three man rush, don't call for slow developing pass plays. It's ok to use quick slants. Speaking of quick slants, it's ok to call proper coverage on them. Don't waste time outs. If you have the ball under two minutes before the half, it's ok to use those time outs.

Welp. After thinking about that... I'm not so sure if I want RR back.

They want to keep Rivera, and they have every right to say so. It's silly to suggest they "shouldn't say it".

Heck, they have more right to talk about it than we do because this directly affects their livelihood.

Maybe you should have had a better 40 time so you could model these behaviors. it is what it is is dead...and that more than anything is probally why I am a Rivera Apologist.

I'm pretty sure the real reason our OP wants the players to stay quiet is because he's afraid ownership might listen to them.

To be honest though, he should listen (for good or ill).

Yeah, I would think the players have far more rights to express the opinion on weather a coach should stay or go then any fan.

As disappointed as I have been with Rivera and co. I really think he should be given another year after the way the players have been talking lately. Just saw a locker talk video with Smitty praising ol Riviera.

fug it, keep him.
