I watched this implosion live. Buffalo fans were LEAVINg the damn stadium during that drive. Shows they had no faith in their team, meanwhile me and my dad had a deep feeling that the td would happen... I drove 10 hours to watch rivera shit the bed.

The sad thing is fans universally recognize this but yet this fucking idiot can't seem to get a grip on it.

I'm sure its a great read Rayzor, but i aint trying to read that. I dont need to read that article to understand what Rivera puts me through on a weekly basis!

 

 

 

 

This sucks, but i honestly feel like this is an opportunity to truly fix this team. I knew trying to tape over Hurney's broken foundations wasn't going to work. I was hopeful, and supported Rivera's regime, but its clear as day now that he does not know how to win games.

 

 

JR put the control of this team in a genuine football guy, who is very passionate about his job and proving his worth in this league. If we do flop this year, he now have full opportunity to get rid of Hurney's aftermath.

 

Patient and Hopefull. Whatever it takes to get a ring. Time, Money, Effort, ill do my part.

Rivera also had no intention of even going for a TD on that last drive. He was simply trying to run down the clock, while simultaneously handicapping his offense. 

 

That's why he didn't go for. He never had any intention to (despite his horrendous defense). 

 

The guy is just one of the all time worst coaches in the NFL. And I been saying this from his first year. 

 

The players are a reflection of their Head Coach. And this is why, the Panthers can play well for most of a game, then piss it away towards the end. It's because if their HC is scared and confused in the closing minutes, why wouldn't they be as well?

 

It only makes sense.

from grantland....screw espn and nfl and SI....grantland/bill barnwell is what you should be reading.

 

excerpt:

rivera, at the end of games, puts this team in a situation that is a proven losing strategy...at least here it is. he sets them up to lose. to fail.

 

and then he blames execution.

 

screw you rivera.

 

It's like he forgets who our personnel are when it matters most. He doesn't get ebb and flows of the game.

 

if i'm Rivera I tell Shula, put the ball in Cam's hands, he is the leader of our team and he is our best player. It's on him. And Cam wants it that way. 16 of 18 conversions. This is absolute madness.

I had NO doubt in my mind Buffalo was going to come back and win after we didn't go for it.  NO DOUBT.  I laughed when I heard Bills fans were leaving.  Obviously they didn't do their homework on this team lol.  That is the saddest thing, that I have 0% faith in this team to close a game, I know in my heart we're going to lose, and I'm not even surprised to give up a lead.

In fairness, if Rivera goes for it on 4th and 1, and the team fails to move the chains.....................  The majority would be saying he should be fired for not taking the points...

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm just as fed up as everyone else, but, it's much easier for us to coach a game Monday morning, than it is to coach one on Sunday afternoon...

oh...and for anyone who pulls out the usual "lol, people sitting on their couches complaining about decisions made by people who do this for a living r dumb."

 

i'm not a mechanic, but i can sure tell when a mechanic does a bad job.

 

i'm not a plumber, but i can sure tell when a plumber does a bad job.

 

i'm not an accountant, but i can sure tell when an accountant does a bad job.

 

i'm not a coach, but i can sure tell when a coach does a bad job.

 

the evidence for all of it is in the finished product.

Why? Because the game may have went to overtime?
