Do you think it would be straight playoffs or bust next season?

I'm leaning towards wanting Ron to stay but I can't handle anymore 2-6 starts and finishing a bunch of meaningless games in december.

I really couldn't see 7-9 or 8-8 keeping his job next year, especially with our talented roster.

If Ron stays I will be dissapointed,I will never forget how how awful he was to start the season.He doesn't know how to manage a football game we lost a lot of games in the 4th qrt because of his terrible clock management.

I say playoffs.

It seems like ever since we destroyed the Falcons that this team has been playing well, and beating quality opponents.


I think that the defense is finally starting to buy into his program.

The man has always coached great defenses, I knew it was only a matter of time before they started flying around and swarming to the ball. I think he deserves one more year. Playoffs or bust.

To me, it's not just playoffs, but at least one playoff victory. Getting there without a win, after waiting at that point 8 years, wouldn't be enough.

The Chargers and Raiders constitute as quality opponents?

I'm still on the fence about him staying. We almost tried to piss that win today away in usual Rivera fashion. Absolutely though it goes without saying, playoffs or be shown the door. I'm just going to be very pissed if we waste another season by making the decision to retain him. I will happily eat crow if he gets us to the playoffs though.

I'm all for him staying another year. I don't see anything else but the playoffs in this team's future.

Not really, but New Orleans is, and we beat ATL badly when they were thought to be the best team in the league.

I'll be pissed when we waste another season by hiring a new head coach.

We were spoiled when John Fox took us from 1-15 to the Super Bowl in two seasons.

I believe Ron Rivera gets it now. All he has to do is can Chud and hire Norv to work with Scott.

I believe this is going to be exactly what happens, at this point.

But I was the new GM, I'd let Rivera know quickly that he is on a very, very short less. Losing is unacceptable.

Pretty funny how so many want him gone. Look at Fox as an example; never had back to back winning seasons here. He goes to Denver and has 2 great seasons on a row. Ever think maybe it is beyond just coaching here? I believe we had a losing mentality here and it has taken Rivera and the firing of Hurney to remove it. I'm all for Rivera staying another season.
