Rivera again a step slower and behind, just like on Sundays.

i wish he would make decisions as fast and as decisively as he talked yesterday.

seemed like a totally different guy than had been here these last two years.

lol, might be just the refuse to believe in coincidences or you might be right. Sad thing is we will never know.

When will Rivera ever learn?? He just bragged on the radio yesterday, that he learned to stop being passive after the 8th game.

Then why was he so conservative when it came time to go for it on fourth and one in the tenth game?

lol i'm only saying that because someone said they were taking our rejects. you can't reject someone who is leaving on their own for a better situation.

Cannot argue with that.

All this constant negativity has the Huddle falling down my lists of place to visit. If I wanted to hate the Panthers I couldn't do better than hanging around here.

I'll see you all in the preseason.

Man, you guys are really something. Did it ever occur to you that by the time Rivera knew he needed an OC, Norv, Chud had already offered him the job? How was Rivera supposed to get Norv when he basically already had a job?

Being disgruntled doesn't necessarily mean you need to go off your rocker with these sad scenarios. Something displeases you, blame Rivera. OK, why not?

Yeah, I didn't mean for this thread to devolve into a Rivera bashfest. I was pissed when the Shula promotion was first announced, but I've come to terms with it. My point in posting this thread was that it feels like Chud sort of back channeled Norv before he had even gotten a second interview (hell, the minute he was requested to interview for the first time, he may have called Norv and asked him to be his OC in case he gets the job). Obviously, that left us out in the cold with the best possible replacement for Chud going to work for Chud instead.

Anyway, our coaching staff is in place for at least this season, and it doesn't really do any good to be all doom and gloom about them. If they don't perform, they'll be out, but at this point, there's nothing we can do.

I dont think the browns need any bad ju-ju from us here to suck....Brandon Weeden (aka Chris Weinke 2.0), will give them all the suckitude they need. Chuds in for a rude awakening going from Cam to Weeden.

I don't know what browns games you.watched.

Most likely zero.

Weeden is pretty good.

Chud made Derek Anderson a probowler.

I'm sure Chud can work well with Weeden.

Because many Huddler's felt he should have had the cajones to fire Chud after the 2012 season in the first place. And now Ron is telling us, 'I wanted Norv. But by the time I contacted him, the deal was already made with Chud and Norv to go to Cleveland'.That's why. It's only another example of Rivera being passive, moving slow again and losing out.

Ironically, Chud couldn't have gotten the Cleveland HC job with out Norv either. SMH

It sounds like we were caught pretty off-guard by the Chud hiring. With it happening so fast, it seems like Chud had already set up a direct line to Norv before he was even hired. Which is pretty lame... We should have just fired him immediately and started talking to Norv before anything else could happen.

any coach interviewing for a hc position can make a a good impression by already having a list of coaches he would include on his staff.

I guess you just wing it in an interview.
