What has Rivera really proven?

Recommended Posts

I know a lot of you guys are on the keep Rivera bandwagon. This is a article I just wanted some of you guys to read if you want.

I'll give him this: he's a defensive mastermind. Given what he had to work with, Rivera really assembled a defensive coalition. However, this year, offensively, we regressed. I like him as a person, but as a coach, I can't stand him. The close games still haunt us, and Rivera's conservatiness must go.

He has the players respect. That's about it.

true Steve Smith has to worry about his job being safe, he better hope Rivera stays.

or maybe, they are speaking out because they actually like him.

you might have a point if it was the nobodies or the newcomers alone singing his praises, but that isn't the case... these guys actually like him...

on the other hand, I don't think their opinions should mean much either, but that's because a coach players love isn't always a coach that a team needs.

People have bought into the last 4 games too much and blame the first half of the season on Chud. Rivera should have seen the issues with the offence and fixed it earlier. The wins this season mainly came from weaker opponents.

The only way I would be happy with Rivera staying is if he can bring in Norv Turner as OC.

That he sucks and will get out-coached when he goes up against the truly elite coaches in this league. The guy is pedestrian.

he has proven he can take a bunch of 3rd stringers off the street and a terrible defense and make them look good

Sorry...but our OL looked terrible the entire season and if you're talking about the defense go back and look at the games we played against legitimate teams. We gave up 30+ points today and only won because their defense sucked worse than ours. You people need to watch some REAL football..aka the Broncos, Patriots, Seattle, San Fransisco, Colts. Ron Rivera is a joke and you guys are going to feel stupid that you wanted him back for a 3rd year when there are a ton of better candidates out there (if he gets to stay).
