#2512200 "Riverboat Ron" nickname does not have just to do with 4th downs

Posted by teeray on 24 November 2013 - 11:19 PM

Pretty sure there was a thread about this very subject last week.

But who cares? I'm down to re read stuff

 

If so, my bad.  I was out of town part of last week so I may not have read every thread that was created. 

 

Thanks for keeping everything straight and keeping us posters in our place homie .

#2511890 "Riverboat Ron" nickname does not have just to do with 4th downs

Everyone has talked about Riverboat Ron and his newfound willingness to go for it in fourth down situations.  But that is only part of the story.

 

I can't find the quote, but I remember Rivera had a quote after the Bears loss last year, (paraphrasing) "You have to make them drive down the field and beat you". and one of the beat writers writing "That is exactly what they did"

 

Time after time, we would get in these situations and we would run very basic coverage, just keep everything in front of you, just rush 3 or 4, drop 7 or 8, get really deep, etc.

 

But in these late game situations during this win streak, he has also gambled much more often on defense late in games, and it has paid off big time.  Against New England only up by 4 we dialed up a CB blitz on that final drive, against SF Kuechly blitzed one of their final drives and got a sack, if I recall Mitchell got a sack late in the game against the Rams.

 

No longer, late in games in crucial defensive positions are we just sitting back and hoping they make a mistake.  Riverboat Ron has gotten much more aggressive and has shown much more faith in the defense to make a play and cover with sending extra guys and being aggressive on the perimeter instead of just loose zones and being conservative. 

 

I think the change has also played as much of a part in our winning streak and ability to win close games as has his willingness to go for it on fourth down.




#2511788 DRAFT SPECULATION/NEWS THREAD

I hate Duke as much as the next UNC fan, but Parker is a flat out stud.  I like him the most out of these big 3.

 

Wiggins has all the potential in the world, but he is almost too ambivalent.  He doesn't have that killer take over instinct yet.

 

Doesn't mean he can't develop that.  I felt the same way about Lebron when he came out, and now he is as clutch as anyone, and is not afraid to just put the team on his back and will a team to victory.

Defense holds leads, Cam get 4QCs and GWDs.

Amazing how that works.

You are absolutely correct. He hit him in the chest.


#2511571 lololololol fans over on saintsreport have picked us to lose every single gam...

Posted by teeray on 24 November 2013 - 08:55 PM

No team I hate more than the Saints. They are the worst in every way.


#2511559 Alright guys, so what have you been doing to keep this win streak going?

Posted by teeray on 24 November 2013 - 08:52 PM

Seriously, every gameday I have eaten at Bojangles we have won. Every time I haven't we have lost.

Me and my wife got in an argument because her parents were coming into town for lunch today and didn't want Bojangles.

It donned on me early this morning that fug it I'll go for breakfast. So it all worked out. But I was seriously angry about getting my pregame routine messed with.

Brees in the dome is tough, as everyone knows.

People seem to forget that we swept the Saints

People use the excuse of "we didn't have our head coach" when by the end of the year, the Saints had everything figured out for the most part.


Yeah, well we didn't have Riverboat Ron either

The flag the refs picked up again in the end zone todau was the correct call.


#2511023 RIVERBOAT IS THE REAL DEAL

Ron Rivera is my least favorite coach in the NFL.

Riverboat Ron, however, is my favorite by a landslide.

That riverboating son of a bitch.
