If Rivera is fired, who is the new coach?

Jon Gruden had seven years of pro coaching experience before he got the Raiders job, including three as an Offensive Coordinator. Kelly has no NFL experience at all.

I hear what you're saying though, but I've heard it before. They said it about Spurrier too. Here's a few other names--Mike Riley, Lou Holtz, Nick Saban, Butch Davis, Bobby Petrino,

Kelly will get hyped, and get a job, and look really really bad. He can't even win the NCAA championship, how is he supposed to win in the NFL?

IMO you can't lump Saban in that convo. Was he an ass the way he left? Yeah. But he had probably the worst QB situation in the league and won more games than our current coach who people are clammoring to keep.

it's practically a requirement for richardson that a head coach have a defensive background.

JR should be hands off with that part of the decision. The guy is 76 and doesn't know how to run an NFL team..it's why he's hiring a new GM. So hopefully he'll let the GM do his job.

Fair enough. He also had NFL coaching experience.

Kelly, however, does not. :)

At this point. I want Rivera to have one more year. People are spoiled, mainly our fan base. Because John Fox had early success, we expect the next guy to do the same. The bar was set too damn high and patience has been thrown out the window.

I woud prefer Rivera over any of those guys.

yeah Rivera's resume is better then all those options, if we are going to fire Rivera I want a clear upgrade and not another coordinator at this point we would be better off keeping Rivera one more year then highering any of them

Blame cam for him not winning the BCS.

My prediction: some Huddlers will love him, some will hate him, no one will have a clue about him until at least week 8

Did McClain make the pro bowl?

Wait, you would rather have McCoy over Fewell? The same guy who made his QBs throw balls through tires. Also, it doesn't hurt to have a future HOF QB as your QB. Manning makes any coordinator look good.

My choice would be Mike Sullivan

It'll be John Edward channeling Bear Bryant. He will lead the Panthers to 18-0 only to bench Cam just before the SB & when he's asked why he will say "War damn eagle" while eating a burger made from Tiger the eagle. As the Panthers lose 34-0, he will run out to midfield, drop trou, & wiggle his dick vaguely in Cam's direction yelling "Go Bama! Roll Tide!!!"

He was here with delhomme and with The Golden Calf of Bristol. He isn't just getting a look because of this season.
