Bama and Oregon. And that would have been more fun.
You guys are looking at the Playoff Committee poll, which wouldn't have existed in the BCS system. According to the AP Poll and USA Today poll, Alabama would have 1 and FSU would have been 2 after the conference championships and the BCS poll usually mimicked those rankings at the top. I doubt an undeafeated, deafending champion FSU would have gotten left out.
2011: Started 2-8, finished 4-2 to make season 6-10
2012: Started 2-8, finished 5-1 to end season at 7-9
2013: Started 0-2 and rumors about him being fired if he lost to the Giants began, went 12-2 and won division.
2014: Started 3-8-1, including 6 blow-outs, finished 4-0 and won a terrible division.
I'm not advocating it, but this is Rivera's yearly sctick and I'm getting tired of it. Obviously, him being let go isn't going to happen, but another year and I hope that is it (if this happens again).
This is what it boils down to on this board, I'm feeling.
He came in from day 1 saying it was going to take at least 3 years, and then had surprising success in his first year so people lost sight of the fact that we're currently in rebuilding. Combined with his short leash for being "different" and a "yankee," a lot of stupid fans are gonna be whining about him needlessly.
Absolutely, love him or hate him, Gettleman is getting at least 4 years to make this his roster.
Firing him prior to that, and we look like the Raiders. I'm by no means happy right now, but I'm holding out before I raise the pitchfork.
It gets on my nerves how everytime Cam has the inevitable bad game the every QB has, no matter how well he played the past couple of weeks, someone gotta make a thread about how concerned they are about it.
I don't think so, when he was hired he said that it was going to take two years before he has room to do much beside cap clearing and that it could be rough ride until then. We were a surprise team last year, I just think that he just stuck to his 2+ year idea rather than trying to re-sign a bunch of guys that wanted more money after one good year of play.
