Ron Rivera: Norv Turner Clone?


Best Answer rscott94, 16 September 2013 - 08:26 PM

I think Rivera is more of a Mike Singletary.....

 

 

Now hopefully we can find our Jim Harbaugh

rivera isn't fit to whiff norv's jock strap.

 

 

Everyone forgets that Norv went to the AFC championship game, and also how stacked the AFC was at the top back then.

 

Pats, Baltimore, Indy, Pitt, you had to go through two all time great QB's and 2 all time great D's to get to the Super Bowl.

 

Norv beat the Peyton led Colts twice in the playoffs.

 

Norv should have been gone before last year, but let's not even compare the two coaches.

Guys might wanna keep in mind that any successes you cite for Turner from 2007 to 2010 occurred with Ron on his staff. That may affect the strength of your argument.

As to the thread premise, I'd compare Ron to a hybrid of Turner and Singletary.

Norv turned it around the last couple years, starting off well then crashing towards the end.  at least thats what my horrible memory is telling me.

Cmon man Norv coached multiple winning teams and almost made a Super Bowl. Once again, MUCH better coach. Ron Rivera is in a class all of his own.  There is no comp

 

Norv was dealt a dream hand and did nothing with it.  Again, he had the #1 Defense and the #1 offense in the NFL at the same time.  How do you not go to the super bowl?  How do you not win it?

 

Norv sucked.

Norv has forever been one of those 'great coordinator / lousy head coach' types. Singletary was too.

Sadly, I suspect that may be Rivera as well :(

Well at least Norv has actually had a winning season.

 

 

Something that  I can't see happening to a team with Rivera as HC....He may have a future as a DC in the NFL but I can't see him being HC again.

Looks to me like we need to hire Norv Turner. He's better than Rivera, at least at getting to the playoffs.

 

He inherited a team that was stacked.  Of course they went to the playoffs-they were in the AFC West when everyone else sucked.  Not winning a super bowl bid was a crime against the citizens of SD.

I don't think that you understand how hard it is to get to the Super Bowl, much less win it.

 

How talented was Denver last year?  And SF the year before?

 

The one year they lost in the AFC Championship game, Rivers had a torn ACL, and LT couldn't play.

 

Not really taking up for Norv here, as I don't think that he is a very good coach, but he is not nearly as bad as our very own Ron.
