I think the anachronistic moments add depth and texture to the story. I think this season is fantastic so far. The clown is awesome

Well they impressed me at times against the Bengals at least. And I wouldn't say they lost us the Packers game.

To a point.

I wouldn't have kept any of those guys for the salary they got paid elsewhere even if we didn't have cap issues, but we did have issues, major ones. And the big reason we have them is because the last GM was willing to overpay.

And yes, we had interest in some free agents. What we didn't have was money. Nor did any of the top tackles fall to us in the draft.

There are definitely front office decisions I disagree with from this past offseason, but I think most of them trace to Rivera's belief that guys who try really really hard are better than they truly are.

Like I said, world class game planner, not so hot as a roster builder.


I agree that most were overpaid. But it does show that Rivera wasn't as comfortable with the guys he had, but was forced to roll with them because of the cap implications. It's a good thing we have been hitting on some players in the draft or we would be in deep poo.

So how about firing Matsko, promoting Ray Brown, and sending a message to the other coaches that heads are going to start rolling if the players keep making mental mistakes?


I'd fire the secondary coach before offensive line. Offensive line has been ok the past two weeks and that is saying something with the group we put on the field.

Rivera is in charge of setting the depth chart, deciding who starts and who sits on gameday, etc.

Gettleman has also said that roster decisions - and even draft and free agent decisions - are a collaborative effort. He believes in an 'inclusive' approach and takes input from Rivera before making any decision.

This, I believe, is a big reason why we rolled with Byron Bell and Nate Chandler. Also why Charles Godfrey is still on the team.


Collaborative*** As long as it's low cost free agents, he can pick a guy. We had interest in Anthony Collins and Eugene Monroe. We wanted to keep Mike Mitchell, Captain Munnerlyn, and Ted Ginn. None of those things happened. At that point it isn't a coaching failure, it's the front office crippling the coaches.
