Rivera on his job

Yes, it seems like we've been screwed once again. Hard to believe that this wasn't foreseen. Who wants a more-than-likely temporary OC position other than someone who is inexperienced or who had their chance before and blew it and wants another one.

No top notch guys are gonna want to come here.

This is a disaster. We've basically just thrown away the first three years of our once-in-a-lifetime gift of a franchise QB.

Cam went through four offenses in four years, and thrived in all of them. Hell, his worst struggles came when he was under the same scheme two years in a row. He's not Alex Smith, the kid can learn with the best of them.

The one thing I am interested in knowing is how much Rivera knew or if he was prepared for something like this to happen.

Gettleman is signed being told we have a staff in place for next season...and then, the guy who runs and created our offense leaves. You've gotta think things are feeling uncomfortable already for him and now Rivera is going to either just promote Shula (yay?) or scramble to find a 1 year temp.

ugh

he's turned being in over his head as an HC into an artform.

it's what i expect.

of course "it's a process".

meh.....

Yeah but I'm ready for him to go to the next level.

I'm simply stating that Cam's not an idiot, he can absorb any changes made to the offense (which I don't think will be nearly as wide-ranging as the panic-meisters imagine it will be.)

I'm not worried about how Cam will perform... but the offense as a whole has to all be on the same page. Whoever we get, best thing they can do is let Cam be Cam... don't try to force him into some system and nitpick his mechanics. Let him play.

just because you can handle it doesn't mean you should or that it's good for you or that it's something you want to continue doing.

this is a bad thing, esp. since there's a high likelihood that he'll have to get used to another OC and coaching staff after the '13 season.

yep. it's not just cam. it's the whole offense.

they all have to get used to another OC.

this thing is getting so messy i expect to hear smitty say he's hanging up his cleats.

i mean why stay with this clusterf*ck of an organization?

totally haha

I'm not in complete doom and gloom mode but this feels like very murky waters and makes me really wish we would have just pulled the trigger for a new HC. Since the end of the season, it seemed like this was all a strategy to use another JR safety net by retaining him and now half of the net is gone and its the most important part.

Shula is the safe route, so I see our safe franchise doing this. meh. we'll see
