Lombardi think Rivera will be gone Monday.

Another thing I think about is true the Skins and Seahawks finally seemed to have got things right with both teams having winning records in the 3rd year of Carroll and Shanahan, but then I think they had no QB their first two years while we are in our 2nd season of having a franchise QB and still have a losing record. Thats another reason that makes me think Ron probably should go

I didn't say he should be a coaching candidate,I was just using him as a example as a coach.

I would be ok if we kept Rivera just not as our Head Coach,like I said he is not a leader of man.He is too quiet and doesn't command respect from the players like the other good coaches in the NFL.People forget how bad he was early in the season and now that we won a couple of games to end the season people thinking he deserves another shot.

You don't fire a head coach then retain him on the next staff. That would just be a recipe for disaster.

Lombardi said back when Hurney was fired that it was because he was too hesitant to "make changes" (implying JR wanted to fire Rivera back then).

I've seen this sort of comparison all too much around here. Just because other coaches got it right in their 3rd year without a QB doesn't mean anything in regard to how our 2nd year coach and 2nd year QB can't get over the hump.

There's no pre-determined formula in deciding the fate of a coach. Each and every circumstance is different and each coach takes a different path throughout the year.

Everything is riding on the Saints game. We've been playing a semi-easy schedule the last couple of games but there has been progression on both sides of the ball. Rivera has made some real boneheaded mistakes this year but also has progressed as a coach.

I think it's simple. If Rivera wins against the Saints, he stays one more year to fulfill the rest of his contract. If he loses, he stands the chance of losing the job. Another 6-10 year is not indicative of an upward trend.

I actually remember this. It better to move fast so we can get our GM interviews in and then can get their coaches list together.

We've won 12 games combined in the last two years. Does anyone want to look back and figure out how many of those wins came after we were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs?

Marty Schottenheimer, if we fire someone we gotta get Marty. Marty ball will make us a winner.

I want someone with experience who isn't burned out. You guys know that Aj Smith hosed him. San Diego wouldve been champs by now.

I wouldn't be shocked if the new GM decision has already been sorted out behind the scenes with a wink/nod agreement in place.

9 of the 12 wins came from games played after eliminated from the post season.
