Both Rivera and Shula have stepped it up.

Shula has been calling great games as of Kate and Cam us executing them near perfection. They really seem to be on the same page.

Somewhere Zod us sitting in a dark room crying because Shula has not failed.

He still has to prove he can win against winning teams but I am pulling for him.

One thing you can give Rivera is he has been in the trenches (Unlike Schaino) and has the respect of his team.


I am happy for him and now I want to see what he does against coaches that have been more successful than him,  Smith, Harbaugh, Billicheat.

I don't know why folks think his changes are so huge.  I have been saying for years that he is a first time head coach and has plenty to learn.  He has been making changes along the way.  It isn't until we started winning early in the year that anyone notices.  This is what you have to deal with when you have a young team and a first time head coach.  It takes time and patience while they learn what to do.  Hopefully we can reap the benefits.  Our team has won 8 out of their last 11 games.


BTW: he will likely do some boneheaded things this year as well.  That is what you get, the good with the bad.

For everybody that says we're just beating sorry team's, well guess what, before now, we were losing to sorry teams, Buffalo anybody? They've found an identity and Cam has stopped forcing things and just taking what the D is giving him. Defense is bending but not breaking. Rivera is coaching much, much better, if you say otherwise, your blind.

Buffalo isn't a sorry team. They're dangerous, especially in buffalo. Don't want to hurt feelings but they're about like us, very comparable

Some people are never satisfied. All this "still not sold" $hit. If you can't see that RR and this team have changed and are winning then you need to go find another team to root for. In all of his do you ever stop to think that Gettleman is part of this change in attitude? RR is not going anywhere so you either get happy with it or find a new team until he is.

Nah, that was a topic during the chat last night...some wanting him to go for it on 4th and 4 late and up by more than enough.  RR's calling them just ballsy enough now, but not getting stupid.  I like it.

I loved seeing Ron being more emotional. I wonder if he crused out the ref in Spanish. And we have to make the playoffs after talking smack with bucs fans on my instagram they think it doesn't matter that we won because we are going to be watching the playoffs with them in December. Wanna prove them all wrong

I was astonished he went for it up 14-6, lol. I don't even know if that was a good call, I was yelling at my screen and I started laughing hysterically as Tolbert just ran over people

It was the wrong call. It was reckless.

Not apologizing for anything.


Still want him gone, still don't believe he can coach and still wondering why it took 3 losing seasons to finally wake up and smell the coffee.

I don't think there was any major revelation or anything of any significance that occurred to suddenly morph him from the statue on the sidelines to an iconic head coach you all want him to be.


You have to ask yourself, "Why the sudden change?" The last 2 seasons there were rumblings that Rivera was on the hot seat and that he may not survive. Why has it taken two different circumstances such as this to instill some kind of change?


I think Gettleman still wants some say into who coaches this team and and I don't think he's going to keep Rivera. I think he wants his guy regardless and 3 straight seasons with 1-3 starts speaks more to Rivera's coaching ability than a 3-game win streak against 2 winless teams and a .500 team.
