4th and inches anywhere I would have a hard time punting. If you can stop me from getting inches you deserve to get the ball back.

Different game and circumstances....

for example, we got the ball back and were marching down the field. All the way down to the 10 and fumbled....that is the play the sticks out. Not an earlier punt

Nothing wrong with punting today.

The fumble was the dagger, I question the punt because it was such a short distance. And on the next drive, Seattle took a whole 2 plays to get back to where the conversion attempt would have been from.

But yes, if DWill doesn't fumble, this punt would be forgotten.

This is why rivera needs to take a hike and gettleman hire a coach with some damn balls.

 

this times

 

pissed me off the first time he did it. even more pissed off the second time. it was at that moment i realized that he is the same lame coach he's been the first couple years.

 

i don't care if the players like him. they aren't winning with him. he can't get the job done.

 

find someone that can. if he's got a losing record going into the bye, he needs to be gone.

 

no more excuses. just win. if the players don't want him gone, then they need to make up for his insufficiences.

We were 3 of 9 on 4th down conversions last year. That's 33%, or a 66% chance that Seattle gets the ball deep in Carolina territory.

 

Were those 4th and a matter of 2-3 inches though?  4th and 1 and 4th and 2 are a LOT different than 4th and a few inches, especially when you have Tolbert and Cam on your team.  This really doesn't apply here.

We had two opportunities on fourth and short, never went for it.  That being said, most coaches do not go for it.  Rivera played it by the book.  It is the book that is wrong.

What coach do you think is gonna come in week 4 and turn us into a winning team? The only thing that will happen with firing Rivera during the season is exploding the season and pissing off the players. Smith likely retires, and I doubt Cam sticks around to "rebuild" through his prime. Hardy probably signs with whichever team Rivera gets signed as d-coordinator.
