In your mind - and/or what will it take for Gettleman/Richardson not to give him the ax after the upcoming season ?

 

What if we were to sweep the NFC South but got hammered by our non division opponents?

9-7 or playoffs. if we go 9-7 and don't make the playoffs, i think he stays.

9-7 minimum.  Also not lose any games because of poor decisions.

I think there are multiple objectives:

 

1.  We have to make the playoffs.   I don't believe there is any flexibility in this one

2.  Cam must show growth/improvement of his already good play.  If Cam regresses but we still make the playoffs I don't think Rivera will be the coach unless we go really deep.  (scenario) Our defense carries us but Cam has a poor year and we go out in the first round.

3.  We must close out games.  I can't place blame on Rivera totally on this.  A fumble here, a drop pass there, a safety letting a ball fly over his head .. these things were all that stood between us and playoffs the last few years.  However if it happens again this year, Rivera will get the blame regardless.

10-6 and playoff's, it might actually take a division title for him to stay.

I agree 10-6 and playoffs. Rivera has to show dominance this year. I think he is capable of it. No more BS losses.

 

10-6 and no playoffs might actually happen because how tough the NFC is, in that case I he could stay as well.

Playoffs or bust.  Pretty simple in my mind.

I think he has to show he can get us off to a good start instead of catching wins at the end of the season. 9-7 or higher and/or playoffs is a lock

it needs to be playoffs, but i wouldn't be a bit surprised to see him stay if we get 8 wins. you know...because that's forward progress and all. i just hope that gettleman has higher standards and has the power to do something about it.

1. Playoffs or bust... i don't think there is a chance he stays if we do not make it in.

2  Better in game management (time management, end of game play calling) that does not negatively affect the game's outcome. (I think Rivera has hit his quota for these in his first 2 seasons... no more excuses)
