And anyone who criticizes the punt against ATL can kick rocks because that decision played out perfectly, we just had abysmal defensive execution between the likes of Nakamura and Norman afterwards.

lol go kick rocks yourself.

that played out perfectly? it LOST THE GAME!!!! if that's perfection then they need to do something else. that was my point....its too easy to blow up. its a faulty strategy because of how easy it is for an offense to exploit and get the ball down the field in just a matter of seconds.

the defense was getting torched all day and all the falcons needed to do was get in field goal range. why should that situation be any different?

the only safe place for a ball to be is in your hands. the only way to protect a score is scoring more or not letting the other team touch the ball, and in that situation it entirely preventable.

rivera invited them to score by giving them the ball and they took him up on it.

Rayzor, there's a distinct difference between "everything is fine" and "FIRE EVERYONE!! RIVERA SUX! JR SHOULD DIE ALREADY!!!"

They're both unrealistic and separate from reality, but the latter is a hell of a lot more prominent of late and more annoying. Perhaps if people made statements like "Rivera struggled a lot this year, and he needs to show real improvement to merit his return" rather than "we're doomed to mediocrity because that asshat got another shot because JR is a cheap bastard" I wouldn't be blasting away at this bullshit.

I know you wanted a new head coach, but for God's sake, the man showed some growth this year, so give him a chance and stop being so downright negative.

you've been jumping to extremes more than me in your trying to defend rivera.

i've been consistent in saying that rivera has to get the team to the playoffs or at the very least a winning season next year to keep his job. i don't think he's nearly good enough for us, meaning a new GM, to not be allowed to look for other options.

and yes...i saw a little growth in some areas, but not enough in the biggest sticking points which is his late game management. i think it will cost us more games in the future than it already has.

i have a different opinion than you. it's a shame that you're so stuck in this tiny little world that says you know more than anyone and if someone has a different opinion than you then they're a moron.

some have higher standards and expectations than you. some are looking for things that you aren't. just because you get paid to analyze football (and don't make the mistake of saying you're the only one who does) doesn't mean you know more than anyone in here or that you are more of an expert than anyone.

it doesn't matter if i give him another chance or not. he's here for at least another year so all i can do is sit back and root for my team and hope that if rivera fails to get this team winning early and often next year, missing out on the playoffs that the new GM has the balls to say that's enough and we try to find someone that can make this team winning. based on what i've seen in the big picture, i just have no faith in his ability to do anything than make an effort at the end of the season to try and save his job. you don't agree with it? get over it.

when u see the same teams reach the playoffs year after year, exactly how much luck is playing a factor in that?

apparently the HC has very little to do with it.

Preseason - Hey I really feel we are on the cusp of something special this year


Post season - Hey I really feel we are on the cusp of something special next year

rinse repeat.

I've been a fan since 1995 and have done this way too often. Sorry if I don't "buy" into the same thing I always have as easily anymore.

you're being a bad/unrealistic fan.

drink the kool aid and start finding articles and metrics that say that everything is fine here.

wow. really good read. actually gives me more respect for the added rules. these guys don't know where to draw the line...they are blinded by the job. the rules don't just help protect the league from lawsuits, it helps protect the players from themselves.

should they need to be protected from themselves? doesn't really matter because they do need it.

its funny that people think its bad form for a player to rally their team.

that's what they're trying to do. its not a celebration...it's an effort to get their teammates fired up and rolling.

step out of your boring little boxes. showing emotion is ok.

not to forget he got into the playoffs last year with an 8-8 record in the weakest division in the league.

So you're saying that Rivera would have the same results as Harbaugh had he gone to SF?

Do you think that if Harbaugh had come to Carolina, he would have two losing seasons so far?

harbaugh would have done better in either place for 3 reasons.

1) he knew how to be a HC...rivera is still learning after 2 years.
2) he doesn't coach scared like rivera. he coaches to win games convincingly. he coaches to dominate the other team. rivera coaches to get a lead and then hope your defense can hang on to it. he coaches to not lose.
3) he had a more experienced coaching staff

we selected a coach who we hoped would one day know how to be a good head coach...and after two losing seasons we're still hoping for that. meanwhile the 49ers picked someone who was already good at it.

calling him overrated is almost as delusional as calling rivera a good coach. coaches that can win find a way to make their team win. coaches that can't make excuses.

Why would you have faith in a coach that has not produced?

I recommend only having faith in those that have been successful.

big head scratcher for me. 4 games out of two seasons, regardless of how good they were, is not enough to elicit confidence or faith for me. he's a losing HC until he proves otherwise.

its amazing the excuses made for rivera losing and harbaugh winning that get thrown around.

boils down to one guys knows what he's doing and the other is learning (i hope) and one guy having balls and the other doesn't.

Posted by rayzor on 13 January 2013 - 12:31 AM

Rivera's done more on the defensive side of the ball with much less talent. Rivera is also not an arrogant, deceitful piece of excrement. One thing no one will ever say about Harbaugh is that he is a good person.

Leaving Stanford didn't seem to hurt them any; makes you wonder how much he really did there.

you're delusional.
