Scary facts from these past two seasons in the RivERA.

22 posts in this topic

Except statistically we've had a a very good season (with one of the toughest schedules) and except in two blowouts we've lost by <7 points in every game. We have a franchise quarterback who is a solid leader of the offense and a defensive stud rookie leader of the defense.

Compare us to the Colts. They've had the easiest schedule in the league, and Luck has won all of the "close" games they've has. Statistically speaking they're not going to win all those "close" games next year and we are not going to lose all of ours. It goes beyond wins and losses when you're speaking predictively and talking about the future of the franchise. The Colts are overrated, we're not. But please, spout more bullshit about how terrible we are.

Also, objectively speaking we're very underrated.

On the bright side, Rivera is something like 7-1 in December, so if we ever play decent ball at the beginning of the year, we should be able to close out strong.

only thing wrong with that is wins in December don't matter unless December matters

I think you will find similar stats for any team that only has 6 wins a season. Only 12 teams make the playoffs and And only 13 teams this year will finish with a winning record. Read that again so it sinks in...it is very tough to have a winning record. Only 13 out of 32 teams will have a winning record this year.

The only reason why RR is even being considered being brought back is we were competitive in and should have won most games we lost. I will take RR for another year if we can't get a reputable HC.

Oh yahhh moral victories for being close! We're undefeated when you include those.

Real easy to blame everything on Rivera.There are other dynamics on this team that most here are are not willing or able to face.

You are saying we have more wins against bad teams than against good teams? Shocking!

FYI, the Denver broncos, who most ppl have as the best team in the nfl right now, has the same number of wins over playoff teams that we do.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
