People here just don't get it. RR wasn't so bad that you fire him just to do it. Have to make sure there are better options before you fire RR. As I've said all along, I only want RR fired if we have a better option.

Also, it would undermine our new GM if you fired RR w/o consulting our new GM. We will hire a new GM first, then address our coach. There are a lot of coaching positions open now and we don't want to make a rash decision that we later regret. RR is no Lombardi, but I can assure you we could do much worse.

Nothing like dragging our butts and potentially ending up with another lame duck coach in his final year.

No you really don't. It's a cop out and it's frustrating. Rivera should have been gone last night if he's gonna be gone, GM who hasn't been on the job should have no say in it.

Fail by the owner. Slow to react... And it always shows with us.

So, No GM so far although we hired a guy a couple months ago to get the process started and a lame duck head coach. Meanwhile teams are calling and setting up HC interviews.

Looks like we will be stuck with Rivera and God knows who as GM.

I gotta be honest and say there is a small part of me that's worried this team will have a paralyzing fear of making a tough decision so that they just sit around while all the quality candidates are scooped up and say "oops! Might as well just leave things be! Rivera/Beane '13!"

Having a deep seeded fear of making big decisions and having the indecision and waiting to make a move kill us has been a part of this team far too long, and as its been said, if Beane is the GM here one second longer than he should be, I don't blame anybody who jumps ship.

Media said Rivera is in limbo. Not Jerry.

Jerry doesn't strike me as indecisive. Quite the contrary. He just makes bad decisions when it comes to [i]winning [/i]football and fans. They're primarily politically/financially based.

Big difference. I'm just fairly certain his priorities are in this order: the league, profits, politics, Bojangles, image, charity and finally....winning.

This fan base has been stuck in ''Full dumbass mode'' since about the 3rd interception in that Cardinals playoff game.

Hey genius, Cant interview people under contract until team will grant permission.

Teams wont grant permission until end of the season.

So unless you were hoping we were gonna hire Bob the Greeter from Wal-mart we would of had to wait til the end of the season.

I know it can be complicated but we will get you there.

Yeah, the Cards have a ready made GM candidate in Steve Keim. There was some speculation that they fired Rod Graves specifically to promote Keim.

That said, Keim is being allowed to interview elsewhere. And Andy Reid is a "control" guy.

Because over the past year, they've done some things that no one believed they would (i.e. firing Hurney, hiring a consultant).

At least for the moment, there's more evidence that things are [b][i]not[/i][/b] status quo than there is that they are.
