I ont think that 7 (8 so far) wins are good enough for CotY, but it is facsinating to me how many people love our defense and the players drafted under rivera and our physicality and everything our team has become over the past two years, but then turn around and want to fire Rivera and 'roll the dice' on some guy that could be a loser and set our franchise back5 or ten years.
We have just won a playoff game for the first time in 9 years. We have a francise QB, and elite defense, and a pretty good running game. We have an open window to win a superbowl... yet some people would throw it all away for a new coach who would dismantle our team and start us over.
Rivera has imroved every season he has been here in some way or another. Sure, he regressed from a 12-4 seaon as far as season wins, but yesterday we won a playoff game, which we didnt do last year.
I am starting to run on and on, but people only seem to focus on Rivera's mistakes instead of what he has done right for this team. When Rivera got here, Jimmy Classen was our QB and we had a 1-15 season and the media never even talked about us at all. Everything has changed for the better since then.
