Here's the thing.

The GM should be drafting for his HC.

What has Rivera done to warrant returning? Don't give me "Well he should come back for a third year, but be on a short leash". That wastes the 2013 draft - we'll be drafting players that fit the current system. If Rivera disappoints again and is fired suddenly you have 3 or 4 2nd year players that the new HC doesn't have any investment in.

Sack Rivera. Wipe the slate clean. Let the new GM bring in his own man and let him live or die by his own choices, not Hurney's.

I want to ship Rivera off, I really do. However I feel you need to give NFL coaches at least 2 - 3 years to prove their worth and system. I would keep him on a short leash, if we start 1-3 or 2-3, axe him...

Ron Rivera should return because I haven't seen a reason to fire him.

It takes a few years to turn things around (in some cases) and this team is trending upward.

the players play for him and that is real important at this time in the season.

You people who think getting rid of Rivera will take Cam a step back need to realize that it doesn't matter what the hell Cam does if our coach is a moron who costs us WINS. This game is about WINNING...not stats that your QB puts up. Ben Roethlisberger has put up pretty mediocre stats his entire career...but he wins games and b/c of that is considered one of the 5 best in the league. Get over this fear of trying to make a 23 year old QB learn a new system. The NFL changes so much that he is going to have to learn new things every offseason in order to adapt and win.

It's ridiculous to me that we have had virtually an identical season to last year (losses up front to take us out of the playoffs then wins at the end to make Rivera look prettier) and you people want to go for a round 3. Wow...This city doesn't deserve an elite franchise if this is seriously all that you people demand.

The emotional side of me says he has to go, the reasonable side says he stays, we we within one score of seven teams and had a lot of blown leads we are a young team in most positions we will learn our defense is improving greatly when we get some talent back on that side of the ball and if we can pick up some younger DTS we will be a force possible cheap free agents include Sedric Ellis, Dorsey, Allan Branch ect.

I would love to get Geoff Swartz back to play RG (he grades out awesome there).

why no option for giving the GM a clean slate?

- Two losing seasons in a row

- Little to no improvement record-wise in those two years

- Inability to adjust in game or before

- Emotionally distant

- Misuses talent

- Puts good talent in the doghouse over single mistakes and instead puts mediocre talent in

- Refusal to can inept schemes when it's clear they don't work

- Think's it's cool to be emotionally distant all season and then wants to start chewing out his players after he finally manages to win. Really? You had NO RIGHT to act like that all season and then act like hot poo after one victory when your career is a failure

agreed with all this except the pooty emotional stuff.what is this, the doctor phil show? emotionally distant. lolother than that, good post.

Rivera is going to have to bring in a guy with HC experience. I think if he would have done that to begin with, our record could reflect it with a few more wins.

He's also going to have to make a tough decision on Chud. IMHO, it might be best to fire Chud and bring in Norv Turner as OC at the end of the season.

I honestly think RR will be back next season no matter what happens this weekend in NO.
