All I saw was 6-10 and keeping Rivera. Don't want.

Coaches make teams into Super Bowl champions. Ask Tampa bay and tony dungy. Defense was awesome but they couldn't make it over the hump. Enter Jon gruden.

Sure I'd keep him. As a co defensive coordinator with Sean McDermott. Hehe.

Say we have a top 3 defense, im talking about a D that resembles the steel curtain or 85 Bears D BUT we have say one of the worst offensive rankings in the league. Would you be ok if we kept Rivera ONLY if we went out and got a new OC? And no im not talking about some poo like promoting Ken Dorsey or some poo. I mean a real deal, legit OC. A Hue Jackson or Whisenhunt type.

I must say that what worries me greatly is our D will be so amazing but Shula might make us a sub .500 team, man how devastating would it be if we risk losing out on such a stout D by firing Rivera and starting all over again with a new HC. With all the pieces on D running like a well oiled machine under Rivera, it would really break my heart seeing that blown up.

Before the pitch forks come out, just think of this for a minute. Imagine for one minute if we had the 2011 offense to go along with this 2013 defense, EASILY a 12-4 team and that might be on the low end. Can you imagine how good this team would be with this defense and a Hue Jackson type OC?

Also one more thing. A similar situation happened with Kubiak. It took him 4-5 seasons before the Texans finally became legit under Kubiak and what kept his job safe year after year was the stout D he was building.

Shula's poor offenses of the past didn't prevent the Bucs from making the playoffs, going 6-10 with him at the helm with a top 3 defense means a total regression of the team.

Just say no to Rex. His mouth writes too many checks his fat ass can't cash.

I don't see any scenario where Rivera sticks around after a losing season. And if Rivera is gone, I'd also be surprised at an in-house replacement. More likely they hire from outside and let the new coach pick his staff.

In that event, there might be some holdovers (coach would likely be encouraged to keep Sam Mills III, possibly Ricky Proehl too) but I'd expect the majority of the staff to be replaced.

I wouldn't want to keep Rivera if we went 10-6, much less 6-10.  He's had over 2 years and has shown us what were getting.  The guy isn't cut out to be an NFL coach.  He's flustered under pressure, he's clueless in decision making.  Even if we win in spite of him, and it's very possible with the talent we have, he shouldn't be here next year.

Top 3 defense, and 6 wins. That means the offense and special teams would have to be historically bad. Clean house and keep McD. Bye Ron.
