The only way Rivera gets fired

29 posts in this topic

Is if they decide to revert back to their ways of the last two games. It's blatantly obvious that since maybe he realizes playing close games isn't to his strong suit, he went for the slitting of the throat today. That was felt with Ginn's last TD. I attended the game today. Giants fans were classy. i just really wish this happened to Atlanta, New Orleans, Tampa, Dallas, Pittsburgh or New England, rather than the Giants. It just sucks the momentum can't be carried over to next week. With our upcoming opponents, if we play like this, there's no reason we shouldn't win out up to the Atlanta game (then win that one b/c they suck).

Is it just me that can't stand that there were many members on here cringing with every TD we scored, wanting us to badly lose?

I don't see how today's game could be anything other than pure bliss....

 

I hope that Rivera has finally found his missing piece, that something internally has clicked and that he is going to lead us the Playoffs this year and many more..... but for now I'll just take this week's win.

I still feel this game was an anomaly. We've had a few of these before in the Rivera era and I think we'll be back to business as usual in two weeks (playing down to the level of the competition and making costly mistakes late in games).

 

I don't dislike Rivera, he seems sincere and hardworking but as a fan I want results. If this is a turning point for Rivera and the Panthers, great, but I'm highly skeptical.

 

Even in this game we had the muffed punt return and Cam's INT. I don't want to sound too harsh in a 38-0 win, but the defense also absolutely dominated Seattle early and the team let the game stay close and manageable. They did the same for much of the first half against the Giants. Luckily they had a TD called back and missed a FG.

 

This team just doesn't play tough or with a since of purpose. Nobody is perfect and you're not going to capitalize on exceptional defensive performances every time, but this team is the opposite, they always open the door for their opponents to come back.

 

It's disgusting to watch most weeks.

This sums up all my thoughts here. Great post

It's the close games that Rivera can't seem to win. Blowing out the Giants hasn't changed that.

if this game doesn't stand out as a statistical outlier when we look back from week 17 then yeah, he stays.

 

remember tom coughlin was piloting an 0-2 giants team in 2007 and widely considered to be on the verge of being fired before turning a corner with the team, both in the lockerroom and as a gameday manager, all of which was sparked by beating the redskins and starting on a red-hot tear fueled by a punishing defensive line and the elevated play of their much-maligned young quarterback.

 

you just never know

Oh, no doubt I am enjoying this. But i'm hoping he realized what everyone on this team is capable of today. Let cam be cam. If he makes his reads and there's nothing there, let his ass run.. Drayton Florence is the best shutdown corner to come off of a couch. Why he was cut and Fua resigned, i'll never know. What decent runs the Giants had in the second half is b/c they ran literally right at Fua. Also, Peyton had negative passing yards for most of the first half, and we actually had -11 in the first quarter. Shula adjusted his playcalling, which hasn't been done in the previous two games. Take the damn shackles off.

    • Jesus. A 3-4 OLB at #8? Two major off-field character concerns in the 2nd round? Another slow WR in the 3rd? Never. Gonna. Happen. There's at least a decent chance that his top three picks won't even be on our draft board. Gettleman has said numerous times in the past that guys who aren't scheme fits for us aren't on our draft board. There goes McKinley. Given our past with guys like Carruth and Hardy, there's zero chance that Mixon is on our board. Given Robinson's off-field issues involving a stolen gun, I'd say there's a better than average chance that he's not on our board either. You'd be hard pressed to come up with a more unrealistic mock draft for the Panthers if you set out to try to do just that.
    • I can't say that any one of those guys ends up a Panther.  I think if Cam is there at 40 (which I doubt), then we would likely pull the trigger.
    • The need by some Americans here and across the country to demonize only select individuals for rioting (ahem, minorities) speaks directly to the fact that we've really made little actual progress since witnessing unrest in our streets dating back to the civil rights era. Ask yourself truthfully, what has really changed when the first thing some white people can think of even today in 2017 when they see a black person "rioting" is, "why are these black people so angry?"? But then white people rioting over a sporting event or a pumpkin festival is viewed as harmless tomfoolery.  If you as not only an American but also a basic human being fail to see the difference in the dynamic at play here as it pertains to the response to these instances, you are part of the problem whether you realize it or not.
