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

Recommended Posts

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?

Some teams react differently to coaching techniques. It seems like the team is much more suited for a laid back coach. We have strong position coaches and at nearly every position we have, there is a veteran presence (Derek Anderson, DeAngelo Williams, Steve Smith, Greg Olsen, Thomas Davis, Jon Beason, Charles Johnson, Colin Cole, Jordan Gross, Ryan Kalil, Drayton Florence, Charles Godfrey).

One thing I've learned from my coaching classes and helping out with my college football team is that you have to get to know your personnel because not every team (and within every team player) reacts the same.

Blah blah blah. Why start the season talking about how, when, or why the coach should be fired? I'm banking on a stellar season.

Yeah well a 13-19 record and a 1-5 start and a 1-6 start back to back say otherwise.

Huh? That doesn't really make sense.

Rivera has never been a laid back coach until this year.. I guess we have different opinions of laid back... Some probably want to see Rivera rip into players on the sidelines like Bill Parcels when I'm under the impression that yelling at a grown man is not productive whatsoever. In my opinion, Rivera has made great strides this offseason and it started with him admitting his previous mistakes.

Also while I'm not defending all of Rivera's decisions, that 13-19 record is not totally on him. At the end of the day, the players make the plays...

Ugh people on here are still happy with being avg. Here's a thought let's win our division and not worry about being eliminated.

No one is happy with being average but a lot of people are being realistic...

We have an awful offensive line, a make shift secondary, a bunch of players coming off injuries, and an a relatively unknown wide receiver group other than Smith and LaFell.

If there's one thing that's worse than a pessimist is someone that's overly optimistic.

How so? The head coach is THE guy, and his teams win loss total is a direct reflection of his job performance. Players don't choose the plays, and they don't waste timeouts in moronic fashion, or punt on 4th and 1 either.

If a grown man who is paid millions or multiple millions can't take some yelling, they don't belong on the roster. Honestly though yelling isn't even a necessity, it's more of a cliche if anything. What do I want? Intensity.

Agreed...Rivera is gaining confidence with this being only his SECOND!!! Real offseason where he can assess progress and regression.

A first season with a front office that made a decent amount of quality moves...not like a Hurney-Nakamura signing and popping bubbley soon after satisfied with a terrible offseason with no direction.

Team assesment:Our QB needs WRs..

Hurney: .ok ill sign a pricey HB!! We will run less too!! Double win!!

The team had a top 10 defense last season with an uneven secondary and below avg run defense.

i really think Rivera can be special when constructing defensive schemes with McD...we just need that special teams to be somewhat...special.

Not exactly...

The head coach does not call the plays, the coach isn't in charge of positional meetings, and the head coach isn't the one out there on the field trying to make plays.

The head coaches primary job is to game plan. DeAngelo Williams said something recently that really convinced me that Chudzinski was the problem. Williams said that the team game planned to run the ball during the week but when they got to the games they completely ignored the game plan. It seems like Chud had his own idea on game day and tended to ignore the game plan that Rivera had set up. I think Shula and Rivera will be a much better match.

Rivera has intensity he just shows it in a different way, you can look at him and see that he wants to succeed. If you're looking for a coach that gets in players faces or try's to fire up his team by jumping around, you might want to switch teams.

 

Rivera will always be a mellow guy but you can tell by looking at him on game day that he has a passion to succeed.

Also let's be real, if you're smart you knew Rivera was going to make mistakes in his first two years. Did you really expect that a head coach with no experience was going to come in a take us to the Super Bowl in two years?
