If we go 7-9 or 6-10 how would you feel about keeping Rivera if..

77 posts in this topic

The only stat that matters in the NFL is the 'W'. 

 

Rivera has not shown to date that he knows how to consistently get one of those.

 

His team:

1.   has not shown the ability to pull an upset.

2.   appeared out coached and out maneuvered by better teams.

3.  shown zero ability to execute a winning drive when it matters.

4.   shown the ability to lose to lesser teams as well.  The loss last year to KC would have been enough for me to get rid of him.

5.   shows lack of intelligence and discipline, either by stupid penalties at the worst possible time or the inability to just finish  plays when it is a clutch play.

 

These are not the characteristics of a winning program no matter what justifications or excuses are given to him.

 

Winners just do it.  Losers find excuses.  HIs title is HC.  He is absolutely responsible for the DC and OC and ST Coach.  He signs off on the game plan and is responsible for all of it and that includes game time adjustments.  .

 

Nice guy.  Good DC. Head coach...I guess we'll see and for the time and money I invest in this team, I sincerely hope that I am wrong on everything I said.   8-8 will be nothing short of a miracle for him but it should not be enough to keep him.

That call should be from Dave Gettleman. If JR gets involved in who the coach should be, I'll be pissed.

 

Hire good people, and let them do their jobs.

Yep. One of those situations where you don't know who the real mastermind is. Same question applies to Greg Roman, honestly.

My personal opinion: I don't think McDermott's ready to be in charge of an entire program.

 

Looking back, he was actually my top choice along with Dennison for HC before we picked Rivera

If your owner's name is Jerry, that ain't happening.

Gettleman can do all of the hiring but you can believe that Richardson does the firing.

7-9 with a top 3 defense, is very telling. Either you need a new HC or a new QB.

It depends on who is available. I personally wouldn't mind giving Larry Fedora a look, barring how Philedelphias offense holds up. Fedora runs something similar that would be a benefit and he could lead any team out of mediocrity it seems.

I'm not familiar with any NFL assistants or head coaches. I'm sure Getts recruiting background will carry over to coaches.

    • Those generally aren't set until August or so. No way of really telling the games that will be worth being nationally televised beyond the basic rivalries that are big draws anyway (Pens vs Caps, for example) until after all the roster moves get settled and coverage of practices and preseason games start giving everybody an idea of where teams are talent wise. I expect us to get at least a few NBC games, because our division has too many big draws for us to get completely shut out of national games.
    • By the by, Einstein, Brexit alone caused 338m in debt for Manchester United. A 27.5% increase in one fiscal quarter. See, if you can muster enough brain cells, you'd know the weakened pound plays a factor. No billionaire is gonna change the economy. So your insane theory about EPL money being a game changer for attracting all the elite stars and prospects fails... tremendously. Especially since the top producer in your league is fugged 2-3 years from now.  You better hope Brexit doesn't collapse either. Your precious billionaires would press that escape button ASAP leaving the EPL in horrible shape even with the TV money.  Those 'broke ass' Real and Barca fans won't have to worry about that. :)
