Tidbits from the interview with Rivera

39 posts in this topic

he should be taking the blame...it's his team. it's his fault that they allowed chud to change so much at the beginning of the year and it's his fault that they waited so long to change.

 

To some extent yes, it's all on him. However when it's believed you have some stud offensive coordinator you don't tell them what to do with their offense early in a season. Not when you are a defensive coach.In hindsight sure, but at the time that just doesn't seem like a realistic thing to happen.

To me Cam is the X factor on offense this year. Rivera tried to take the blame for Cams slump and I partially concur but Cam needs to work on his foot work and some of his decision making. No doubt Cam has an arm he just needs to improve the accuracy in the short and intermediate passes. We really need to score between 26 and 30 points per game to be a contender.

 

Why 26-20 points per game? If our front 7 plays well this year. We only need to score maybe 14-17 a game. Maybe  26-30 in certain games. But it will all come down how our D plays this year.

There are quite a few games on our schedule that if we scored 17 points would be us getting blown out.  No matter our defence I do not see that beating the Saints, Giants, Pats, 49ers or Falcons.

we should never EVER believe that. not in this era, regardless of how confident we are in the defense.

 

to be consistently competive, you HAVE to put a ton of points on the board. we have to be able to do it week in and week out and this team has to be expecting to be in a shoot out every week.

 

we have to be putting 25+ points on the board every week. we can't get by with less. that has to be the mindset.

 

screw winning games with defense. outscore the other team. put up more points than the other team is capable of putting up if they figure out your defense, which is going to happen.

Rivera did not fumble on 3-1, did not throw the ball in the dirt in the endzone.  Just those 2 things give us a winning record.  I do not understand the hate, let the guy learn a little.

Completely agree.  I am not saying that I blame Cam for those losses by any stretch, the team lost the game and it never should have come down to those plays if the team was playing well. I always give Cam a break, especially the way Chud expected him to be the team and put too much on him too early.
