If Rivera is fired, Clayton said McCoy would be a major player.


Gee, I wonder who told him that... :unsure:

if rivera is retained, i'm afraid the bitching has only started

and it will only continue until one of two things happen:

1) rivera gets us in the playoffs and back to back winning seasons
and
2) rivera is fired.

that's the standard i'm going to be going by, anyway.

if he's losing, i'm hating. he's got to prove he can make this team win when it counts.

I've gone from part of the lych mob to a member of the believers. The stretch run didn't convince me because of the wins so much as the way in which everyone was playing as a whole. We looked like a team that knew what the hell we were doing over the last 6-7 games for the first time in a long while. Of course, if he stays and we start out 2-4 next year, well, he gotta go! :P

for me to believe i've got to see them start the year the way they finished.

i had my hopes built up last year because they sure looked like they had come together. they regressed and it took them way too long to get things back together or even make an effort to do it.

i liked what i saw, but still it was just december. the season was all but over and they had no chance of the postseason or even a winning season before they made the adjustments they needed.

I hear you. I understand the concerns for those who want him out too. I just want to know if what I thought I saw down the stretch was a mirage or not. Personally I'm willing to see one more year because I believe what I was seeing was the real deal, but we'll find out if it was if he's given another year. I'll happily open the door, kick him in the arse on the way out and slam it if I'm wrong. I just hate to start over with a fresh staff and lose any possible momentum we may have going in the right direction.

It's a possibility that the new GM is told that Rivera has one more year, them the new GM decides Rivera's fate. I can live with that as long as it's not Beane.

I'm tired of hearing all these stupid $hit. These reporters just need to shut the hell up. And they get paid to do this $hit.

Not Yas. lol

Clayton has tons of respect for McCoy and thinks he should be a HC. Actually said he deserved a HC job and a Nobel Prize for the Job he's done in Denver.

That and McCoy is the hottest name in the NFL right now and widely respected in the NFL.

I feel like nobody actually knows anything. So many reports are conflicting and just don't make sense. At this point, I can't imagine Rivera gets fired - but Gannt made a good point on the radio today saying that someone will have to take the fall. I hope that means a Chud/Norv swap out!

I hope they do decide to keep Rivera. This year they were self proclaimed champions of the world. Immature. Already thought they were great from the praise. They are going to get it next season and Rivera is going to be at the helm. Despite the awful start, game better than last year.

I talked to someone today who would know and I got the impression that Rivera is, indeed, going to be here next season.

Was he wearing white socks?
