...will you accept his judgment or would that automatically be 'strike one' against him?

Accept his judgement.

it's hard to tell if Rivera and the team has gotten better or it's just a matter of either playing teams that have quit (Chargers), teams that have little to play for (Atlanta) or teams that are bad (Oakland).

I'll leave that to someone a lot smarter than me at evaluation.

It's not what I want, but I would figure he has a plan and be optimistic about it.

It won't surprise me if a meeting with Rivera is part of the interview process.

He won't have any say in the hire, but a "get acquainted" thing would still be a good idea.

If it was the new GMs decision and not a Richardson mandate, you accept his judgement.

I will put my strong doubts about Ron to the side and be fully supportive.

Frankly, I would not be a bit surprised if the new GM decides to keep Ron for another year. It would give him a year to get his feet wet and work on the roster and the cap while evaluating the rest of the staff.

If that happens, I just pray that some team thinks Chud is the wizard he thinks he is and takes him off our hands.

I think Brandon Beane is going to keep Rivera as HC next year.

I could see the GM giving Ron and staff one more year. Maybe they wont like the crop of coaches that could be available example Andy Reid ect. After the next season if the group doesnt go playoffs then fire the coach andbring in a new group. Is the current interim GM in the running for full time GM? I figured we would try and get a name guy as GM.

I would accept because there is no can't miss prospects for coaches. I would consider Bruce Arians however as a better prospect than Rivera, but I don't know what he would do to our defense. If there was ever a time I could care less about switching over to a 3-4 defense, this ain't one of those times. We finally got two good DEs, and I want to maximize that for now.

I would be good if we just got a new OC.

I would accept it. I would prefer to replace Rivera, but if he's back with a new OC, I would accept it. If Chud returns, I'm gonna break things.
