This year will tell if Rivera is a horrible coach or not.

guess it's going to be a new head coach. i'm with gantt on this one. and you're delusional if you think this was a spectacular offseason. we added depth with veterans as compared to sixth round draft picks.

Well considering all of our FAs besides dwan are on 1 year deals and the report that we were only offering 1 year deals to all our assistant coaching candidates I would say that's a pretty obvious statement there OP

feldman9000 agreeing with you further illustrates my point.

G's magnificent offseason is being dramatically overblown....

We still have holes all over this roster and an oddly built offense around Cam

G is setting the table to burn the mofo down after this year...just like Gantt called. Rivera will be playing from a hole...just like the last 2 seasons. Rivera and Cam have come close to overcoming it the last 2 seasons....but no GM has put Rivera in an easy to win position

Gettleman is setting the table to burn the mofo down? Are you already stuck on your new hang-up? That Gettleman is a dinosaur that refuses to see the supposed new era of offense in the NFL?

The 1 year deals reportedly are a league wide thing. The cap has influenced that. Seems like it is not as not as defining here as it sounds.

I somewhat agree. My caveat is that I will more look at if he improved as a head coach. His main (glaring) weakness is game management/situational football. Far too many times he's made head scratching moves. He was either far too conservative and then sometime unnecessarily aggressive. Some personnel moves have been questionable as well.

He's a very good defensive coach though and I really value that, as I'm sure Gettleman and JR.

If this team stays healthy for the most part and we don't get to at least .500 and his decision making has not improved, then I'm all for firing him.

Rivera ain't going anywhere. You all should stop wasting time and energy playing that garbage.

I know but its the assistant coaching 1 year offers that really give the hint though IMO

Well, obviously he's on the short leash with a new GM and only two years left on the contract. Why would you sign assistants to longer deals if they may not be welcome if Rivera craps the bed?

That is the biggest bullshit I have read this entire offseason...I'm not gonna argue any further than that, because i know you like to have pages and pages of discussion. Pure bullshit.

While cap space limited what we could do, unless I'm missing something the only sure upgrade we have from last season is Ginn. I don't agree that Gettleman is preparing to burn it down, but I don't see how Rivera is in a much better position than he was last season from a roster standpoint.

Don't forget, HC's and 1st rd QB's are usually tied together. If we change regimes we may be looking at more than just a new coach. Food for thought.

What part?

The part where the GM will have a roster that he can easily clean house of after this year? Cam, Luke, Kalil, Johnson, Olsen....everyone else could be parted with....GM inherited Ron on a one year basis. Cam probably wouldn't be safe though. But a 180 degree roster overhaul is something the GM is also leaving open

Or that Rivera has been working from a hole with his stud QB since arriving? He has been running a modern offense with Fox left overs and holes all over his D.....
