More piling on Rivera--Prisco ranks the coaches

All he needs is to work on his game management, his defenses are always good. I feel like everyone is just jumping on the pile about Rivera.

 

Game management... no big deal or anything.

 

But I overall agree with you that with progress in this area he can make some real strides.  This year will be very telling.

The best thing about Rivera is his ability to teach.  He's always done a great job developing talent, and the assistant coaches he's hired all have that ability as well.  So the bright side in all this is that he either puts the game management together this year and wins big, or he's out and Gettleman can recruit the absolutely best X's and O's guy out there to take the talent Rivera's developed and do somethign with it.

 

I want to win now, but I have a lot of faith that we're going to start winning with regularity SOON.

 

BTW, it took the Falcons (.427 lifetime winning %) 44 years to post back to back winning seasons, and 33 years to make the Super Bowl.  It took the Saints (.433) 22 years to win back to back, and 43 years to make the Super Bowl.  It took the Bucs (.394) 25 years to win back to back, and 27 to make the Super Bowl.  The Panthers (.420) made the Super Bowl in their 9th year, and will very likely get back to back winning seasons in their 20th or 21st year.  For what it's worth and all...

Yes, several.

The majority of our fanbase is anywhere but the stadium on gameday. It's hard to get tickets when the PSL owners price gouge and sell them all to fans of the opposing team.

idk if that's all he needs to work on, but it's certainly what he needs to work on the most.

It may turn out when it's all said and done that Rivera is a really good coach... just not a good HEAD coach.

My only point was if he hire a rookie head coach to turn around what was the worst team in the league you should give him a little time to learn. Third year is his year and our year!

Guy has done a few things well. He's had a good eye for talent, hasn't been overly partial to anybody, and has developed young players well.

 

Where he has failed is in his preparation and management. The team has started both seasons slow and flat under his watch. they start games the same way pretty regularly. He's made a number of coaching decision blunders that have cost us, and there have been some serious questions about his gameplan preperation while he's been here (though, if you wanted to, you could defend that.)

 

 

Make or break, Ron.

For Rivera the rating should be should be qualified with 'insufficient information'. This season will tell.

If you think that Ron deserves to be rated higher then you didn't watch very many games the past few years. Ron is a really nice guy but I still think that coaching is the biggest problem with this team.

Ron is going to have to go a long way to proving he isn't just a poor man's Denny Green, which is all he has amounted to at this point
