Soo...Elephant in the room question?

I think the message is; I'm not going to put up with losing and everyone should worry.

Sometimes in an organization it's the best message to send.

Foxs lame duck season didn't do us any good either. I know, bad comparison with a gutted roster.

Wont happen - it makes NO sense to fire a coach mid season unless hes stealing vicodin or something like that.

To me it makes no sense to keep him. Who knows, maybe Shula or Mcderpmott would step in and lead us to the promised land. Probably not, but it would be better than a lame duck Rivera.

i think unless a coach is universally hated by the players and they want him gone, firing someone mid-season is just demoralizing to the whole team. I think it tells the players that management is done and has mailed the season in. If I were a player with only so many years to play I'd be furious to know one of mine was so blatantly being wasted. Not even having a real coach to play for.

Who is to blame for the slow start? There is only so much the coach can do to get grown men to do their job. Case in point; Redskins scheduled their homecoming game for the panthers, that pissed off the players and they went there and whooped ass. The only thing about Rivera was probably being too conservative.

 

Even with that, had Cam not fumbled against ATL and not thrown into the dirt against Seattle, we are talking about 3-2 by week 5 last season instead of 1-4.

I don't believe in firing a coach midseason unless there is a serious problem in the locker room. I don't believe it "sends a message"....

Oh it does, but the message it sends is "this team is a dumpster fire".
