The point isn't that kicking a field goal isn't the right call.  The point is that kicking the field goal when looking at the present state and past melt downs of recent shows that you don't have your finger on the pulse of this team.

 

If Rivera wants to keep his job and win agaisnt the G-men he needs to quickly learn who his team is this week... a destroyed secondary with a great front 7 and a poor O-line with a great backfield which includes a great mobile QB who needs to be released this week!

 

This week we need creativity... not going by the book!

Give it up. He's fired.

We still ran it on 3rd and 5 for no other reason than to force Buffalo to take with what amounts to an absolutely meaningless timeout given how much time there was left. We were playing for the FG before we even got to 4th down.

 

 

Rivera was scared.

David has sucked up to many gas fumes from covering Nascar.

 

 

When your asking a LB and RB can they play in the secondary then putting the game in the defenses hands might not be a good Idea.

He's right when playing by the book!  Do you really think we have a chance to win tomorrow if we play by the book?

I actually agreed with the decision but I am in the minority.

I'm sorry to many variables going against to make that a good decision.

Most coaches would make the same decision so firing Rivera would not likely be any different

And I am not defending Rivera as a coach, just that situation

yes, but honestly lets think about this?

Who would've have thought regardless of the score that our Defense would give up a game winning touchdown to EJ Manuel and the Bills? Sometimes we have to give credit where credit is due
