You're an idiot, the point is he loses to good teams and wins or chokes against bad teams. LOSE-LOSE either way.

How does he not have control over who they beat? he's the fuging coach..... wow.

He doesn't suit up and execute the plays. No one on this team was looking much like they ought to be getting paid what they were early on, yet they still managed to just miss wins in seven games. Only in two were we blown out. If just a couple of things had gone differently, we'd all be sniffing RR's jock right now. That RR managed to correct what was wrong and fire up his players for Ws on the back end of the season tells me he has the know-how. I might be an idiot, but I'm not blind.

yea so just like last year, how he can't win close games we come back to that. Close games come down to coaching, everybody agrees on that. Rivera is like 1-12 or 1-13 some outrageous stat like that in games within 8 points. The NFL comes down to close games, close games he can't win.

This truly is a tough call. For JR to fire Rivera he would pretty much have to go back on the stipulation of "trending upward" that he placed on Rivera to begin with and that's not typically how he operates. I really wanted Rivera to be gone earlier this season but now I'm not so sure. The team has trended upward. The offense is playing better with Cam's maturity. We actually came back in this game and overcame a Cam interception for once. Something tells me we need to keep our organizational infrastructure intact on this one. There are too many moving parts with blowing the whole thing up again. Even Armanti showed up in this one. The players want him.....keep him.
