I was livid about that cheap shot he put on Foles that took away what could have been a safety. Luckily I think he got called to the sideline immediately afterward, where I hope he got an earful. This ain't the old NFL, those yellow flags will fly (unless your name is Jerome Boger, that is.) You want to smash someone with the ball, go for it. But be smart.
Was there some glaring problems with LaFell last night? No? Then perhaps people should be glad we have TWO young developing wideouts rather than dump on one to make the other stand out more despite being MIA for two years.
"I'm in the shower and the water is pouring over my head and suddenly I start thinking, 'You've got to be kidding me. We lost four games last year by one yard — one stinking yard.' Can you imagine that?" Rivera said.
That quote is actually quite encouraging to me. It shows that these things eat at him, and something eating at you long after they've happened means you'll remain focused on correcting them no matter what it takes. Rivera may have been out of his depth early on, but if he and the team pulls it together this season than getting rid of a coach right when he figures it out is a pretty stupid thing to do IMO.
