not make a rash decision? heh... was it some kind of surprise we weren't going to make the playoffs? What kind of rash decision exactly could come from us winning 4 straight? Or maybe he considers keeping Ron to be rash?

meh.

Tells me he wanted to see how the season played out.

Yet another thing that makes me thing he won't pull the trigger but will instead leave it to the GM.

I hope JR is conducting GM interviews. If he is off doing something else while every other team is scrambling to get the talent they want it would be disappointing and reminiscent of when we hired Rivera

JR should keep Rivera for one more year. But make it known that its his LAST year if playoffs are not reached and let it be known he's on the hot seat all year and could be terminated at ANY time. The guy had the team trending up once he realized he was about to be canned. So if these expectations are continued, I think Rivera could make a good push with this team next season. But Chud should be canned. That's one thing JR should make clear. No Chud. Bring in Norv.

This. I really think he has earned another year. The team is playing for him, and finished the season better than they were when he got here.

I agree. I was in favor of him going for a while, but the team has gone from a lame-duck 2-14 before he arrived to an improved 6-10 without an offseason to an admittedly poor beginning to the second campaign. But the team has really gelled down the stretch imo. They are playing as if they know what is expected and they have a cohesiveness and fire that has piqued my attention. We're playing very well defensively with some significant holes. I want to see what Rivera and co. will do in year 3. I'm starting to believe he may be better than what I iniitally felt. The players really seem to want to succeed for Rivera.

Chud can stay or go, but I would really welcome Norv Turner at the OC position.

Why would you replace McDermott?

I wouldn't. But to replace him with Lovie? Absolutely. Won't happen though, I'll bet he takes another HC job.

I like Lovie Smith, but I'd still keep McDermott.

Besides, I've always gotten the impression that the relationship between Smith and Ron Rivera is a tad...awkward.

remember we did the same thing last year.finished strong down the stretch which was why expectations were rather high this year based on how we finished last year.ron will not get it done.winning meaningless games at the end of the season every year does not impress me

Better not happen. IF he is retained and we get off to yet another slow start next season, he needs to be canned mid-season.
