I Kinda Wish The Players Don't Speak On Rivera

29 posts in this topic

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

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).

How dare these guys express their opinions about something that directly affects them :rolleyes:

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.

No, I just think an unhappy atmosphere causes problems and when that happens, people get shipped off

Well, since you don't want the players to be unhappy and since we know the players support keeping Rivera, I guess that means you hope we keep Rivera too. Right?

Have it ever crossed your mind that some of the players want to stay competent. They feel like Rivera would let them slide with somethings, they feel that they can relax. A lot of those guys didn't want Marty Hurney to go either. But we all knew that it would be a mistake for him to stay any longer. Players don't want change, they want to stay in a comfort zone. This has been a problem with Dallas for years.

If this is the case, then do you really want those players on your team?

Steve Smith is one of the players who has spoken out strongly in favor of keeping Ron Rivera.

Read that paragraph you just wrote, and then see if you can convince me that it could describe Steve Smith.
