In Topic: One thing I fear. We beat the Raiders but lose to the Saints..

I actually wouldn't be opposed to Rivera staying, assuming we finish strong. I like what I have seen the second half of the season. I think a lot of people want to get another coach but that's shortsighted. This is only Rivera's second year as a head coach ANYWHERE. He is constantly learning and as long as the team is improving and he hasn't lost the players, why not give him a 3rd year. We could easily be an 8 or 9 win team right now if a few plays had gone differently ON THE FIELD in Chicago, Atlanta, and here at home against Seattle (Cam doesn't throws ball into turf at end), and Tampa to name a few. You can't put that all on Rivera. We go out now and get a different coach it is another 2+ years of new schemes and learning for this young team before we can be anything good. Unless its a well known PROVEN coach like a Cowher why not give Rivera one more chance.

And let the flaming ensue...

We have three veteran linebackers. Thomas Davis is back for real, as is Beason, and Anderson led the team last year in tackles. Why would we rush to start a rookie, even one as talented as Kuechly?

In Topic: Cam's first interception

You have to realize the situation we were in. It was 13-7 and we had GREAT field position from the Joe Adams return. We had been struggling all game up to this point, but had just gotten a score and seemed to be gaining some confidence. We only needed like 10-15 yards for field goal range. There is just no reason to try and force a pass into double/triple coverage given the point we were at in the game. Yes our defense stopped the bucs from scoring off of it but it completely changed the momentum of the game. I agree that great quarterbacks CAN and do throw into this type of coverage, but there was no NEED to do so.
