Ron put faith in the defense to stop a rookie QB with no timeouts and a TD behind. I would've too. Still can't figure out how they marched on our defense that way. I really can't blame him for the FG.

It's just the way it all unfolded. They helped us get into FG range to begin with. You had to feel they were ready to throw this game away. But nooooooo.

And with Rivera being a defensive, pretty much by the book, minded coach, he truly thought he'd made the right call at the time.

Little did he know...it was a turning point in his career. He has gone from thinking he was aggressive, to actually being aggressive. And his team has bought in.

If all goes to plan. We are now in stage 2 in the building of Rome. 1st stage, play good solid physical football. 2nd stage, learn how to win and finish. We are close to the 3rd step, competing for Titles and Championships.

Rivera gots this. With help from Gettlemen. Our culture has gone from a clusterfug of WTF? moments, to things falling our way. Well...except for that pesky O-line situation.

Watching Ron Rivera this season is like watching an episode of family matters when Steve Urkel walks into the big fuging obnoxious machine and turns into Stefan

Holy poo, Rivera almost fuging died thinking about Buffalo.  Seems like he's seriously made a change and not just trying to say the right things.

 

That's gonna be our slogan if we make continue winning and make it to the playoffs...

 

"Remember Buffalo"

 

quick someone PM akpantherfan and tell him to make this into a banner

Thats a really good question. My guess is that if he goes for 4th-1 late in single possession game and we ultimately lose there will be a great many around here who cant get back on the "Fire Rivera" side quick enough.

No shame in going down fighting, unless it's some retarded play action with long developing routes on 4th and inches.

All we want him to do is to NOT coach scared. If we go for the jugular but fail, it's not on Ron.

Don´t think so. RR changed his coaching mind from "play not to lose" to "play to win". People (including me) wanted his head because of his "play not to lose" attitude. Since he got rid of it he earned a lot of credit back.

I'm liking Riverboat Ron much better than Chico. I'm to the point where I'm pulling for him. This is the first time since mid season last year. However, I'm trying yo stay grounded. We've beaten some bad teams and have two good teams in the next two weeks. This is where he needs to prove something. He's not off the hot seat yet and if we miss the playoffs, I'm calling for his head again. For now, I'm giving him a chance, pulling for him, and hopping on the bandwagon. Prove me wrong, Ron.
