"Hey Mr Richardson....no backsies."
There is no continuity on this team. There is no momentum going into next year.
It irritates me to no end that Jerry "Al Davis" RIchardson made the call on Rivera before the GM was hired. Cheap Ass
Shula is an unknown.
Rivera has a built in excuse for 2013 already.
Bring in Gruden.
Oh yes, it is Richardson's fault Chud got hired!
And considering Gettleman had no issue taking this job, who is to say he didn't want Rivera to stay anyway? Better yet, you tell me. Who out there would have been a dramatically better option? By the way, this is coming from a guy who isn't a Rivera fan. But I'm interested in knowing who you think logically would be that much better than just keeping Rivera. Andy Reid? No team has taken an interest in Gruden. Cowher has made it clear he's not returning. Whisenhunt? The guy who couldn't do anything without Warner? I'm really all ears.
Everyone always has a complaint but nobody ever has a solution. I like how people are intent on bashing Richardson for every little thing. Well now is your chance. What do you think should have been done? If we fire Rivera, who would you have wanted as the new head coach? I mean look at all the teams out there struggling to find a good option at HC already.
And I have no idea on how JR deciding to keep a HC before a GM is hired is in any way cheap, especially considering if Rivera hadn't ended the season with the team performing so well, he would have been fired.
