If he stays next year on a "short leash" what's the point of even having him here to begin with? If he gets fired after a bad start it only completely ruins the season all together. It would mostly be another losing season. Why are you guys so opposed to just having a clean break, get a better coach and have actually hope instead of norv/Rivera fake hope. We deserve better and can do better. We've see what RR has and its nothing special. Hopefully the new gm sees this. This team has talent that just needs a better coach to bring them to the next level. Regardless of the outcome of next Sundays game, Rivera needs to leave.

Exactly

RR is basically one big gamble

Cam only signed a 4 year contract

You assume that we're going to have a bad start. What if we start 6-2, and finish the season 10-6 and make the playoffs? Assuming we beat the Saints, you could argue that we are three plays, only three motherfukking plays away from being 10-6 this season.

If any of 1. the bomb to Roddy over Naka, 2. Cam's skipper against Seattle, or 3. any of the slants to Marshall with Norman playing soft went our way, then we aren't even having this conversation about Rivera. (Edit. Wrote that bit before even seeing that there was a thread on the subject)

The law of averages says we're bound to have some close games go our way next year, just because we had an inordinate amount go against us this year.

So I get what you're saying about why even keep Rivera around if he's going to be on a short leash, but maybe if he was on a shorter leash this year, Naka gets benched or we switch from the read option sooner and our record is different. Honestly, we are nothing more than some bad luck away from being a playoff team this year, and for that I say Rivera stays.

Rivera is a mediocre coach at best. Most of these games weve lost close are games weve been up in and piss away. How many games do we have late game heroic surges? barely any. A good coach knows how to win it late and knows how to come from behind to win. Weve had 31 games with RR. you barely ever see that. Mike Smith can coach is team from behind on the board to win. hes done it many times this season. I want a coach better then mediocre. Sorry for feeling that way i guess

No, he's an inexperienced head coach that is still learning...and made the mistake of not bringing in any former HC's to help show him the ropes. It's way too early to say what the final product will be. But for us the question is can we afford to wait and find out, or should we bring someone else in with at least some HC experience?
