After tonight, 6 rookie or 2nd year QB's from the last 2 drafts will be playing in the post season. We have arguably the best QB of the QB's that have come out in the last 2 years, and yet we are sitting at home.

Great coaching, Ron.

Our teams biggest weakness is honestly being weak from having Hurney in charge.

Easy...

By pointing to the fact that they all wanted Hurney to stay as well.

That's all the validation I need to know that these guys aren't very intelligent and their opinions should count very little.

Hell the new GM is going to have to gut a lot of this team anyway just for cap reasons, so in a large way some of those guys opinions won't matter as they will be on a new team.


For different reasons though, they liked Hurney because of the money he gave out.

Why do you think CJ went to twitter on a foolish rampage, my guess is that it was because Hurney broke the bank for him.

Leslie Frazier went from 3-13 to 10-6 and the playoffs with Christian Ponder
Jim Harbaugh took the 49ers from 6-10 to 13-3 and now 11-4-1 with Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick

Pat Shurmur, Mike Munchak, Hue Jackson, Ron Rivera...these were bad hires. Jackson was fired, Shurmur is on his way out, Munchack had a winning record last year. That leaves Rivera, another coach with losing records in his first two seasons. Why should you get to keep your job after that? ESPECIALLY considering he has arguably a top 10 QB in the league.

Two more seasons wasted.
No excuses.

Is it Ron, or is it executing down the stretch?

3 Plays

1. Nakamura/Cam's fumble
2. Cam's throw into the dirt
3. Playing prevent defense against Chicago

I see only one of those as Rivera's fault.

There is also more than a two year play clock for a head coach. You do realize Andy Reid was just fired today, Lovie Smith just might get this offseason today, coaching is a job that takes time. You are still avoiding the actual conversation, why do you fire a coach after two seasons?


Same reason you fire Andy Reid after 14 years... the greatest chance for success has been realized with that particular coach.

So at 8-8 we'd be picking 20s instead of 15.
Whooptiefugingdoo.
we need better than that.

It still doesn't make them intelligent, nor does it make them people to listen to in a situation that involves front office or coaching personnel.

You said why wouldn't we listen to the players on the team, and I gave you one.

A very valid one actually.

I don't give a poo who the players like, they need to do their jobs and stop shitting the bed in close games, regardless of who the coach is.

I will agree with you on that, but I believe Rivera can get this team into the playoff's.

I've said before, this team was a few plays away from being a playoff team. Execution killed us.
