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.

He's proven he can keep a locker room through a lot of messy poo.

But that's not nearly enough.

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.

The players like him because they know their jobs are likely safer if he stays. Their opinion should not factor into this- they all loved Hurney too, since he gave them fat contracts.

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.
