Ten years since the Super Bowl appearance. Roughly the same schedule we had in 2005 when we went to NFC title game. Do the stars align?

Please, then give us your scenario if Rivera is let go.

Tired of people just saying fire Rivera without a real thought out plan otherwise.

How we perform in 2013 depends more on how we conduct ourselves in this offseason than probably any offseason we've had.

There are a few really tricky things we have to navigate this year (management changes, what happens with the coach, how we handle our salary cap...). If they are handled well and promptly we have the pieces to do very well in 2013. If we pussyfoot around, fail to commit, or make terrible decisions we're in for another long year next year.

I'm anxious...not in the Christmas morning way but in the something really bad might just happen way.

Keepinh Rivera just because you're scared of the unknown is no excuse, niether is settling.

Out of the other teams firing a HC next year, you don't see anyone taking a route better than Rivera? I am noy saying I know what to do next, what I said comes from what I see, not because I think I know better about what should happen, and what I saw was two horrible seasons.

Chud or Rivera has to go, I just can't see having a good year next year, whike keeping them both.
Also, I think the new GM is important in this process and those who want to keep Rivera seems to disregard that.

Not that their thoughts or plans really matter. It's all just witless banter and wishful thinking.

I don't know but it makes sense.

In 2004 we had big expectations only to start the season 1-7. But we finished strong and won 6 of our last 8 to finish 7-9. The nest year we went 11-5 and played in the NFC Championship game.

There are a lot of similarities to 2004 and 2012. Including losing 5 games by 6 points or less.

Injuries are no excuse this year. When we were healthy, we lost. We played better after losing some of our starters.
