One thing I have to give Ron credit for..

I know he's got a ton of flack from all of us for various reasons, and for the most part deservedly so... But IMO, I think he's really developed a solid overall coaching staff regarding the positional department this year with Steve Wilks with the DBs (he's regarded as one of the best defensive back coaches around), Eric Washington with the DL(was great with the bears and is obviously having success here), Proehl with the emergence of Ginn, and Jim Skipper (who should have never left to begin with) + the special teams has shown tremendous improvement under Richard Rogers and the extremely underrated hire of Bruce Dehaven. And with the solid play of the linebackers plus the improvement in cam's decision making I think it's safe to say that ken Dorsey and the new linebackers coach who's name I've forgotten at the moment deserve credit as well. I also think matsko has done a solid job with the patchwork OL he's been given to work with so far.

Just giving credit to where credit's due.. Kudos to Rivera for hiring a solid staff this year, hopefully the winning continues and the staff continues to develop the solid group of core players that this team has.

All around the board we have quality coaches.   Maybe that is why he finally pulled his balls out of the closet and started using them.

 

You have so many quality coaches here that his decision making was holding the whole group back.

Yeah........all Rivera needed was time.  Unfortunately, patience doesn't exist in the lexicon of the average, raving, fan (atic).  Fans desire instant gratification.....like children.  It normally takes a little bit of time to build anything worth while.

We hired a rookie HC. I'm ready to say hes learned his lessons and found an identity that works. If we win this division he should at least be in the discussion for coach of the year.
