Interesting that the FA period has been almost all Defense....Rivera's calling card, and ultimately his strength. I'm sure he and Gettleman have spent loads of time talking about what needs to happen on that side of the ball....a lot of new faces to work with over there already. If Rivera can work hard on the game day side of the HC gig, he'll be fine. I already think his leadership, and talent with the X's and O's are right where they need to be. Get the weapons upgraded on offense? This team will be a brand new product this year.

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
