Quality analysis, and I completely agree.

I think some have forgotten just how dreadful Rivera has been at in game decision making.

Ron must have made a hell of a pitch to stay on board, being that Jerry never wanted him originally.

I saw Rivera getting better late last year. He was willing to go for it on more fourth downs. However, I am hoping he does not over-compensate with the gutsy calls. Also, if we start out slow, his azz best be gone. No point in losing when it matters and winning when it does not!

At this point I'd rather him be gutsy and go for the jugular even if we fail, versus being a pussy and laying down. Like wasting 3 timeouts and 2 minutes with the ball before halftime and not even getting a field goal.

I think that Rivera is a very good coach, he's just an awful, AWFUL, game manager. 

 

 

For all the advanced statistical studies we’ve completed, it’s still impossible to separate the performance of a coach from that of his players. After all, in games decided by more than eight points, Rivera’s Panthers are 7-6. Those successes speak more to what Rivera is able to do developing players in practice, either during training camp or between games in the season. The close games reflect Rivera’s weaknesses as a gameday coach.

 

 

And yes, I agree.

I like Rivera but I've been worried that he's holding this team back for a while now...

I've only ever wanted him to focus on fixing the defense, and hire somebody with a strong offensive mind to help him on the offense side.

 

 

 

Until that happens, I've kept my expectations rather conservative.

Rivera is definitely my biggest fear as well. Great article.

He probably said "I'll take a pay cut."

I think that's a much better way of viewing it. He seems to be a strong leader and he knows his X's and O's very well. But game mangement is down.

People got to realize that Rivera has been a HC for only 2 years. The first two years where growing years but we improved each year and got the experience on games. Plus it doesn't hurt that we drafted 2 DT & FA that makes our front 7 one of the best and going back to more traditional game.
