Just looking at the standings,

If we were successful on these 3 plays we would be in the playoffs right now:

1. The throw at the feet of the wide open Harstock in the Seattle game.

2. The Hail Mary by Matt Ryan in the first Atlanta Game

3. The last minute touchdown in the Bucs game (or the 2 point conversion).

TBH looking any two would have been enough for playoff contention. .....


Merry Christmas???????

Yep, it blows, but Rivera isn't a bad coach by any means; as a team we just struggled to make plays down the stretch. Whether that be to coaches play calls or player execution, this team and even this coaching staff is better than the record indicates.

By the way Rivera's winning percentage isn't the worst in the NFL for all those that b*tch about him.

Note: Seven of our nine losses were by a touchdown or less...

Probably every team in front of us could identify several key plays during the season that potentially cost them wins as well.
Fact is you are who your record says you are.

You're doing it wrong. It's Rivera's fault.

Expect everyone to come in and tell you how wrong you are and that you're an idiot.

I agree with you. I want to keep Rivera.

That's why this whole thing is a learning and growing process. We are a young team. I believe we have learned how to hold onto wins and finish out games this season and I truly believe that is going to carry over to next season.

Please don't use this as a reason we should be happy with him. Hopefully, our goal is to be close to the best winning % in the NFL, not to be satisfied with not being the worst.

If we keep him, I like the idea put forth by one poster (believe it was Nanuq); bring in an offensive consultant with prior HC experience. If he struggles out of the gate, we have our interim ready to take over.
