best analysis of rivera's history of close losses

75 posts in this topic

we had an 81% chance of that working. 19% chance of failure.

 

we've seen him use that strategy he used to lose this game how many games before? how often has his method of end of game management worked?

 

if he did something different that showed he had grown a set, even if it failed, i wouldn't be nearly as upset as i am now.

 

what has me pissed off isn't losing that game to buffalo. it was losing it the same damn way we've lost most of our games. by inviting the other team to beat us by giving them the ball.

 

it's stupid and we have a 2-14 record in games decided by seven points or fewer.

 

quoting barnwell again...

 

 

I understand, I do...  I read the piece...  I'm simply saying if it fails, and we lose, we're still upset...  At least I know I am...

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...

Not with our history.  The point was made that going up by 6 rather than staying at 3 puts the Bills in desperation mode, where they could have settled for a FG to tie if needed.  A 6 point lead with less than 3 minutes left is LESS valuable than a 3 point lead.  But alas, a defense coach put out a unit that has given up TD's time and time again at the end of games.  Yea, they are the better unit but not in crunch time.

yes, i'd still be upset, but i'd at least have hope that rivera understood he needed to do something differently to try and win.

 

right now i have no hope. no faith. no confidence.

 

and it's all due to rivera doing the same thing the same way and expecting different results.

 

our secondary is weak, even moreso yesterday. he puts this team constantly into situations that the other team relies to try and move their team quickly down the field.

 

guess what the other team is going to do?

 

it doesn't play to our strength. it plays to our weakness and i honestly, as an opposing team's coach, couldn't wish for a better situation at the end of the game than to have a chance to exploit the other team's weakest link.

You are wrong. They wouldn't have bitched about the decision they would have blamed it on the play call... no matter what it was.

That is true, but unlike Rivera I can use past history to make determinations based on similar circumstances.

Rivera is a coward of a coach. I think our scheme on both sides is fine. But the bottom line is that Rivera is a chicken.

Not a chance. Our secondary is PUTRID. And the numbers are in our favor, not to mention it has NEVER worked for us. Why keep doing the same thing over and over knowing that it never works for us?
