If we go 9-7 and miss the playoffs, Rivera should NOT be fired.

Recommended Posts

That's cool. But no playoffs, he should get the door. It's been over 5 years, and he's been given 3 years to pull it off, much more than most ever get. So yeah, no playoffs, no return.

I see the logic but there are other factors.

1. Who do you replace him with

2. Is it a strong 9-7 or a rally 9-7. Rally caps at the end of the season are not the best indication of good coaching.

3. Injuries: Coach cant overcome this.

Basically you need to look at what he did and judge him based on what he had control of.

I'd agree. If we go 9-7, I think he should stay. But that's it. If we go 8-8 or worse, I say you have to make a change at head coach. Which is what's sad. I think that we have the positional coaches in place to be an awesome, awesome team. Washington is amazing, so is Skipper, etc. It just seems we're lacking a strong-willed head coach to bring it all together.

 

Someone with the intensity of Coughlin would really do wonders for our team.

I disagree. Plenty of teams have overcome injuries. Enough excuses. I'm tired of seeing us loading up our IR midseason. This is why teams have depth, and have drafts. The GM and the head coach are responsible for this.

Yes...bad/stupid losses coupled with either not-making the playoffs or barely making and losing early will determine Rivera's fate.

This team makes the playoffs, or he's done.

 

 

The past two seasons, " Oh, we looked hot at the end! give him another chance!" Bullshit. If we start off bad and look good at the end, he just doesn't have what it takes to win when it matters. There is no "how we look at 9-7". If we are 9-7, its either a third strike with a slow start or we caved at the end. 

 

That said, we will be a 10+ win team

Also, am I the only one bothered by players talking about how "laid back" Rivera is this year? He should be anything but at this point. Look at the Harbaugh brothers who were just in the superbowl. Are they laid back?

Chico goes 9 and 7 and he is going nowhere.  8 and 8 is where there will be debate and arguing.  We all know what happens if he has another losing season (gone like a freight train, gone like yesterday). 

 

We have to go 11 and 5 for Rivera to have a .500 career regular season record.

 

He knows what he has to do and he knows what is at stake.  Let's see what ya' got Ron.  We are all pulling for you.  KEEP POUNDING!!
