Seriously doubt you can find the prior Draft press conferences online anymore, but just from what you can remember about the two prior years compared to today, did Ron Rivera seem happier sitting next to Dave Gettleman talking about the picks they made than he did with Marty Hurney?

He looked pretty happy in those pics in the Pro-Am, as well.

Star replacing Fua is enough to make the most depressed coach, happy.

No, I don't think he appeared happier, but he did appear more comfortable.  This bodes well for the season.

I felt like he was a few things I hadn't seen  him be.  I would call one of them happy, sure.  I also think he was a little more confident and certainly a little more content.  It's not like I see a lot of them together but from hearing Rivera and Gettleman speak I get the distinct impressing Rivera is more comfortable with Gettleman than he ever was with Hurney as well.

 

Maybe I'm just reading too much into things to make myself feel better though.

I definitely get the vibe Rivera is more comfortable with Gettleman above him. Gettleman is a football guy. He has lived and breathed football for the past two decades. Hurney was a fugging beat writer. He was Joe Person before Joe Person.

Saw him earlier off Woodlawn. Mentioned something about a massage.

if you were a coach and had two losing seasons in a row in your first two years of coaching and still managed to not get fired you'd be happy as well.
