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

Personally I am more concerned how the players play.I hate to agree with Bill Polian but so much will be riding on how Cam plays this year.

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 also think the one year deals are giving Gettlemen the opportunity to clean house next year if he fires Rivera.I think he is being smart about it though.

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


Many assistants around the league work on 1 year deals. There is nothing unusual or telling in that.

Well, I think we should have fired Ron last year because playoff are a long shot. Are team is weaker than last year playing the league toughest schedule.

You're probably right, I'm just going off of what I saw in that report from awhile back, plus if you look at gantt's most recent tweets he suggests the same thing regarding the possible "short-termness" of this team.

What if the team goes 10-6 but miss the playoffs like the Bears did?

One year decides if someone is a good coach? Ron already is horrible a winning season might put him at average, he'll be 1 for 3. But even winning won't say much. Postseason coaching says much more, have to get there first. Still not a fan of Rivera.

I think that some of you just refuse to look at the totality of the situation. Now if he makes the same mistakes this year as he did last year, then, like the OP said, let the horrible talk begin. But no need to keep harping on his old mistakes. Let's just hope that he has grown and matured as an HC.
