What would be your reaction if Chud does better than Rivera next season?

Recommended Posts

Might not have a choice....they just spent a first round pick on him last year. Tough to let a new HC immediately go back to the well for another

i think they'll come after anderson and anderson starts.

there's not really a whole lot of seperation from wheeden and anderson, imo, and anderson knows chud's offense. at the very least they'll find some vet who can step in and manage a game.

I think you seriously overrate Chud

i think he's smarter than rivera was in that he insulated himself from getting in over his head. his staff makes him better than he otherwise would have been.

i think the ceiling is low for him, but i expect him to start off better than rivera.

This is obviously going to be a battle of better talent (the Panthers) vs a better coaching staff (the Browns), on paper. And we'll see what happens.

If Rivera has a bad year, I think the Browns can have a better record. However, if the Panthers improve as we think/hope; they should have a better record than the Browns.

I didnt think of it that way.

I think that Chud could be a better coach than Rivera, but I do not think that The Browns will win more games than the Panthers though.

I am still a sleeper on Rivera though. I like his aggressiveness. It is so much better than watching Foxball for God knows how long. I think that the players like Ron, and I am going to be paying attention to how we start the year. I expect them to play the way that they played at the end of the season. If not, than maybe this team isnt ready yet with Ron at the helm.

he's aggressive until the end of the game.

that's when defensive coaches generally show their true colors and revert into "protecting the lead" mode which traditionally means tap on the brakes, eat up clock, and make your defense hold them.

mike smith has turned that into an art form in the playoffs...and by art i mean monkey splattering poo on canvas type art.

Then they will lose. DA isn't good. Wasn't good throwing to a prime Fitzgerald. Wasn't good with Chud in Clev the last we saw that pair. Don't forget, Clev cheered DA's injury and the insertion of a horrific Quinn.

Anderson had one fluke season that happened with others having fluke years. DA has never shown to be a safe vet game manager.

Doesn't help when your OC you give pretty much full control to....has no understanding of when to run and pass.

Yep, that pretty much explains it.

I hope that either Rivera or our next coach will be one of the 'boot on your neck' til it's over type of coach.

Personally, I think a possession without scoring points is a failure, especially with the way the game is evolving offensively. It now seems like in most games that the last team with the ball wins the game. Unfortunately, those are the situations in which Rivera has failed us.

Maybe if Coach sits down and watches the ruthlessness that the Harbaugh brothers get out of their teams, he can learn something. Wonder if an old dog can learn some new tricks? I know that this team has the potential to move the ball at will with the right play-calling.

very well put and agreed, esp. about possession without scoring being a failure. you don't leave points on the table. offense not scoring is just as bad as defense allowing a score. neither should be tolerated. the goal should always be to put points on the board and keep the other team from either scoring or catching up.

is it realistic? probably not, but that shouldn't stop you from expecting it and requiring it from your players. you set the bar high and they'll make every effort to reach it, providing they are equiped and believe the importance of reaching that bar as much as you. even if you come short, you've probably reached higher than you would have otherwise.
