That reminds me...
Giants DC Perry Fewell blames his players
Not a good idea.
For whatever else you think of him, Rivera is by all accounts a guy who accepts blame and deflects credit.
Then you've watched different press conferences than I have.
I repeatedly see other coaches flat out say, "put this one on me, the coaches and I didn't do a good job preparing the team this week".
Ron talks about the player's failures in execution. When has he ever come out and said "sorry, but we screwed up our offensive scheme the first part of the year, and I take responsibility for that"?
