Some of those things are on players.
Will that help him have his team prepared after bye weeks? Will that help him start out quickly in a season? Will that help bring up the intensity in practice during training camp?
Ron Rivera isn't a good head coach. I'd say he's probably in the bottom half in the league. He has more than just one fault that will make him a good coach. In fact, he has a laundry list full of them.
Winning three games in a row has someone blinded people to the brutal blow outs we suffered seemingly every week, while Rivera called out random players like KB, and said that Cam and Luke have to be perfect.
Preparation is just as much on the players as it is on the coaches. Bill Belichek can have the best game plan drawn up but if the Patriots half-ass it, they're gonna lose.
Intensity is another thing that's on the players, Ron can try and pump up his players til he's blue in the face but if CJ would rather lolly gag the first half of the season, then that's what he's going to do.
Also those players are called out because they are held to a higher standard, they're leaders. When I was a semi-assistant (assistant to an assistant) for a year at a small program, we had a QB (that's now a WR in the NFL) that was constantly called out. Why? Because the staff knew he could be better. Sometimes there is no point in calling players out like Bell and Chandler because they truly are doing the best they can and that's not on Rivera, that's on G-Man for giving Rivera poo to work with.
Maybe, just maybe we have a team that doesn't take their poo seriously until their backs are against the wall. Notice how last year guys like Smitty and Hardy were fed up after week 5. This year, we didn't have a team show life until three weeks ago.
That's personnel, not coaching. These players need to be just as accountable as the coaches and it's time the fans understand that.
Does Ron have some things that he struggles with, sure. He's stubborn, his in-game decisions aren't exactly great, and he seems to struggle evaluating talent. However, those are things that can be fixed and to an extent are being fixed.
Just speaking from experience, getting on this revolving coaching carousel is not something you want to do when you have a coach that is loved by his players and has shown the ability to be a solid head coach.
Shula and Rodgers need to go, but that's where the buck stops with me.
