If they are going to have a "meeting" that makes me think he'll be back. I bet JR will just lay down the law, playoffs or bust. If we don't make the field of 12 next year he's done. I think if we were gonna fire him we wouldn't be talking about some "meeting."

I remember. We beat a Tampa team that had completely quit- 2 times, a horrible Indy squad and a Houston team with a rookie QB and finished getting blown out by the Saints. This year we beat Atlanta, destroyed San Diego on the road and finished by handling our business against the Saints. Our defense is really coming together too. The team this year down the stretch looks miles better to me than the team down the stretch last season. I will grant you that if we keep Rivera and he starts out poorly again next year or has a poor season overall, then it is time for him to go, but I want to see another season before starting over yet again.

look at the records of the teams we beat down the stretch this year.heck we lost to the chiefs at home

It's a possibility.

But that said, Richardson is a "face to face" guy. He wouldn't fire Rivera by cell phone.

Surprised we haven't signed a GM yet! haha

Seriously, I do expect us to hire one before we make a decision on Rivera. Whoever the GM is, he is going to want to make the call on who HIS coach is. I think it would silly for Jerry to hire a GM and say, "this is your coach, deal with it!". He'll want whoever it is to have a clean slate.

I don't know if it'll be that quick (unless Richardson really is in New York right now) but I do think it will be soon.

Everyone wanting Rivera gone is silly. You give the guy a few more pieces and this team will be sick. The right GM could build one hell of a winner here with Rivera.

Yes, we lost to an emotionally charged Chiefs team in their home. What is your point here?

We also lost a few close games due to the players execution. Interceptions, fumbles, blown coverage, throwing the ball in the dirt at the goal line.

Losing games close is a lot better than getting blown out.

They have had 2 months to work on it. They should be finishing up the contract today.
