Ron Rivera on his job security...

Recommended Posts

"I don't want to go there" isn't really the quote and doesn't really give the full spirit.

He said "Joe, I'm not going there. I have no concern about that."

In the actual presser it sounded more like he was confident in his job security than he was scared to address it.

Are you trying to tell me that Joe Person presented something out of it's proper context? :unsure:

I feel bad for the guy, but almost every word out of his mouth this week has given anyone in position to fire him reason enough to know it must happen.

My biggest problem with Ron is his lack of urgency

It could just simply mean that he doesn't want it to become a distraction... he's been asked about his job security several times this week, what else is there for him to say at this point?

I don't feel bad for him. He made millions of dollars coaching a good amount of talent into a losing record.

 

Cry me a friggin river.

What do you expect him to say? "Yeah, JR told me if we don't win, I'm going to lose my job..."

Nope. I don't expect a coach to have to convince me every week why he deserves his job. I'm just curious to, as others have put it, his lack of urgency. It's like he doesn't have much worry as to whether he's here or not or if they win or lose. It's really getting old.

Lot of people have that- aside from the obvious joke about having depends and anti bladder spasm drugs and such -  a lot of people are on SSRI s  - anti depressives- they take the lows out but they also remove the highs - makes you sort of an auo maton type personality - at least quite a few folks prescribed them become such - Ron may be one of them.  I do like Rivera- your coach - you want to like the guy - hes likeable - but I think hes not head coach material in todays NFL- what you need is  someone younger  - half nuts and not afraid of being so.

 

I dont think youll get a guy like that with your current owner.  Your current gm is testament to that.

news flash...........they talk every day.

 

News flash...no they don't. Rivera has stated on numerous occasions that he typically meets with JR weekly.

 

I'm sure if they pass in the hallway they might say something like "Hey, how's the family?" but that's probably about the extent of it.

Love Ron. He seems like the nicest guy around but good god man... he's a spineless, incompetent head coach. I wish him the best in his future endeavors

Thats why I don't feel sorry for him. If he chooses to he'll be on someone's defensive staff next year. Making more money

I hope he doesn't stay in the division cause he's really good at keeping our offense from scoring.

this and the fact that he's had strategies fail on him multiple times and does nothing to chance them.  ex. prevent defense, failing to let cam try to win the game on fourth and shorts, etc

Being a defensive coordinator is not the worst thing that could happen to Ron so I feel no sympathy at all. His defense so far is not exactly something to brag about. Lovie Smith had a top 5 defense, went 10-6 and still got fired. They're all millionaires anyway.

Exactly there is actually an article on the observer's site that talks about the team not actually allowing Cam to be a franchise qb. For better or worse you need to allow him to make the plays that win or lose the game.
