Tidbits from the interview with Rivera

Recommended Posts

I don't think we have improved much.

Florence isn't a noteworthy improvement IMO. We also added talent in terms of a nickel CB.....but we had Capt there.

Where is the improvement at CB. Florence IMO is a Nakamura type addition. A body at this stage.


After a year under their belt some the young guys will be better but is that good enough? This is why Gettlemen gets paid the big bucks. We have the money to make a couple of moves.


At this point we need a cb ,ss, and OG so lets see..... what Rivera said we may make a couple of moves.

I assume you mean there is no way we win with 17 points against these teams.  These teams are all beatable.  Our team is good enough to beat them all.  I am actually looking forward to the Giant game.  Carolina is going to have this one marked on their calendar. 


Depends on whether we control the ball like we can.  If your running game is solid and you have 7,8 or 9 minute drives and you score TDs.  You keep the ball out of those guys hands.  They cannot score points sitting on the bench watching us.


I would take 20 and our defense being improved keeping ANYBODY under 20.



Not one team that averaged scoring 20 points made the playoffs. Our defense would have to be stacked at every position to even imagine that. We really need to average 7 additional points to make the playoffs. I view that as attainable if we can add another OG so we can run the ball more.


The interesting discussion is where will these 7 points come from.
