The biggest argument for keeping Rivera was "We dont want to harm Cam by learning a new playbook and risk stunting his growth." Well if we have to get a new OC, guess what? Cam will have to learn a new playbook and would risk stunting his growth. So my question is simple, if Chud goes and Cam and the offense has to learn a new system anywaym why would we keep Rivera again? I know JR is honorable and probably wouldnt fire Rivera this season now anyway, but what a slap in the face if Chud goes and the main reason of keeping Rivera would be moot.

Chud isn't going anywhere. No one is dumb enough to hire him as HC, not even the Browns.

I have faith that the Browns can find the absolute stupidest way to do something, regardless of how implausible it seems.

I've seen Oliver Stone films with less conjecture.

Norv Turner solves this problem.

If Chud leaves and we can't get Norv, what's really the point of having Rivera then?

One has nothing to do with the other. Rivera has always been a defensive guy not an offensive guy. Besides, do you think that Norv and Chud are the only guys who understand how to run a Coryell style offense.

Seriously?????

Rivera is a defensive mind...the type who can help turn an overall average lot into a top 10 D.

Also, Rivera has the lockerroom...which is important. He also is a good X's and O's guy.

Plus, he seems to be good w/ Cam and forward thinking.

....Rivera just needs a good OC and to slightly more aggressive in spots.

No, but Rivera choices in coaches has been iffy at best. I predict Shula if the scenario were to happen
