I know the Rams game was a couple weeks ago, but I keep hearing the knock from fans saying Rivera and Cam has proven they cant win a close game. Do we not forget that Rams game was a close game and a game we would have easily lost year? I forgot exactly when in the game, but remember, Bradford did lead a scoring drive and made it a 8 point game and that was nearing the end of the 3rd qtr, or maybe even in the 4th. How did we respond? We came right back on offense, scored a TD and the rest is history.

If that was the Cowboys playing the Rams, Rams would have came back and won. Oh, and for those that dont consider a 8 pt lead as a "close" game, you are forgetting the Bucs game last year in Charlotte, we had a 8 pt lead with 58 seconds left in the 4th, what do the Bucs do? Freeman to Vjax, touchdown, 2 pt conversion good. We lose in OT and the rest is history.

Now if you want to knock Rivera for not yet winning a game we were trailing, well thats a different conversation. Frankly though, I hope Ron is never put in that position to begin with because me personally, I love blowing teams out.

I have confidence this team can win a close one.

Hell, the Saints home game last year was a good example.

I'd consider the fact that he has two wins in that 2-14 close game record proof that at least knows how to win the occasional close game. It's a fluky as hell stat anyways and no one wins all of them.

It'd be great to get that trend reversed though.

That was one of their best "close wins" ever, but it's still not saying all that much. For instance, if you plugged Cam and Ron Rivera in for Stafford and Schwartz yesterday, do you think they manage to do what the Lions did in that final minute? I don't know want to knock either one because both have been doing so great lately, but I still haven't seen anything that tells me they would have won that.

To be fair, I hadn't seen much by Stafford or Schwartz before that to suggest they'd pull that one off either, SMF.  So... you never know.

Literally everything on the Lions would have been the same only with Cam instead of Stafford. I don't know, probably not, although that's not a fair comparison because that final drive was one of the best of the past few years by anyone.

There were two pretty great catches on that last drive, and two amazing passes.

I'm not sure Detroit could win that game more than once every twenty chances

close game to me; is tied late or trailing by 3 or 4... score a TD and win the game when its coin flip and in the final quarter. we don't win those. Buffalo was a close game. The Rams game really wasnt

People need to look up Aaron Rodgers' record in close and come-from-behind games.

 

(Let me give you a hint if you don't want to look it up, it's not good)

 

Then maybe they will shut up about this stat and realize that points count the same amount no matter how many points your opponent has or what quarter it is.

That Rams D is scary man, lol. Just keep the midget Wilson in the pocket, he will fold.

He's so overrated. The other QB I seen that dances around waiting for somebody to get open is Romo. If the seahawks defense wasn't so dominate you'll see the huge difference and huge criticism

I said this at the beginning of the season that he is not a pocket passer. He always looks to scramble, coverage breaks down and then boom he hits a pass. It's no coincidence that Pete Prisco confirmed it in an article just four days ago!
