I wanted Rivera fired even after he won coach of the year last year, he is just terrible, he is not a championship caliber head coach
Even after all his "Riverboat Ron" stuff during last season (which in itself was crap as really, he was just making the smart decision most of the time, that any coach should make, he wasn't really "gambling") he totally reverted back to his gutless self in the playoff game.
He has proven without a shadow of a doubt to me that he is not a coach you can win a SB title with
And if that's the case, why keep him around when he's had 3 losing seasons out of 4?
Why delay the inevitable and push back getting a new coach/system in here for another full season (or two or three or four if he keeps having mediocre to good seasons to save his job and not GREAT ones)?
Just get rid of him, jump forward a few years in the evolution of this team and get the change going BEFORE Cam's prime years pass him by.
