Rivera Monday presser

Recommended Posts

Cheap ass JR should have provided this team with an indoor practice facility, no question about it. Our team runs walk through practices in hotel banquet rooms during inclement weather situations, that’s fuggin absurd. But Ron should have never used that as an excuse.

I can only assume Tepper is smart enough to see through Ron's bullpoo already.

Like I wrote in another thread yesterday, unless your name is Kennedy or Rockefeller you don't become a damn billionaire without being smart enough to understand that (1) to achieve uncommon success, one has to take chances and risks and (2) to achieve uncommon success, one also has to be smart enough to know WHEN to take those chances and risks.

So there's not a snowball's chance in hell in my mind that Tepper is missing or overlooking Rivera's lack of courage and "sense" in this regard, in my opinion.

As far as the inclement weather comment, am I the only that sees that as a statement on the Hurricanes and other storms that have come through forcing them to practice in a ballroom (or wherever they practice inside now) many days over the last couple weeks? I'm not sure it is referring to the games as there really wasn't any inclement weather on game days that I am aware of.

LOL! You guys get so bent out of shape that an NFL coach doesn't apologize to you every week for not winning the game and making you sad about the Panthers. Plenty of coaches make mea culpas on the podium and continue to suck. Dirk Koetter can take the blame(and he should) all he wants, as vocally as he wants, they're still going to suck. 

Hilarious. 

I don't need his apology. I just need him to admit that he f***** up and tell us how he's going to fix it.   Ron, shouldn't you get back to game planning for the next game against the Eagles instead of trying to unsuccessfully  troll the fan base?

lol. Do you want him to break out the white board and draw you up some X's and O's? 

Jesus, you guys are easy to spin up.

I haven’t seen it mentioned since the gameday thread but what in the hell was that squib kick about to start the second half? That was just dumb.

Rivera on Curtis Samuel not playing much: "A little to do with scheme, a little with the (game) situation."

You heard the man....we were down by 17, why would we need our fleet footed WR on the field?

probably both, I saw plenty of poor angles and poor tackling, most notably Mike Adams

Our DE and our LB were getting run over and run thru

He's clueless and continuously gets out-coached.    The excuses and lack of ownership is out of control.    We're down.... so let's not play our fastest receiver that can get open..... brilliant.

I imagine the coaches must have seen something on tape, which it didn't exactly go as planned obviously. The best part is FOX showed a graphic how the Panthers were the best team in terms of limiting opponents field position on kickoffs. Whoops

I have always been a Rivera advocate and I remain so

but come on coach...those answers at your presser were just crap

your team was not prepared yesterday and you got your  ass handed to you by an inferior opponent and there is no excuse for the way your players played and you and the coaches coached

and we are all getting sick of it

What do you see on tape that makes you want to squib it? That’s a seriously question. Usually you’re just trying to catch the opponent off guard and maybe get a guy to mishandle and fumble. Rivera was just so weird that game. Don’t go for it on 4th and inches with a guy who has converted all but two 4th and 1s his entire career but then decide to squib kick to start the second half? Just really weird decisions from Rivera.

Andddd the Bucs just fired d coordinator so that's the good it does I think ours is next in line.

Firing your DC six weeks in isn't a sign of accountable leadership, it's a sign you're a shitty head coach and your team is a dumpster fire.

    • I think it will take a 3 year deal to entice him. But if you can keep the signing bonus to lets say 10 million and guarantee year 1 salary of 4 million he gets his 14 million out of the gate and we guaranteed all of it. If we guarantee his second year salary of 7 million we are guaranteeing 21 million of his 30 million which is a ton but honestly he has shown to be consistent and productive. With KK and Poe with him they would be productive.  Year three is still a manageable 9 million although his cap would be 12.  Three years from now that will be a huge bargain.  
    • Yeah it sounds like we could afford him. The thing that makes me wary of a deal is that we could go one of two ways: 1. Sign a 1 year deal for $11-12 million with no long term risk if his age catches up to him or he starts wearing down from his injuries. This only makes sense if we think we are a DT away from super bowl contention this year because then we lose him next year and still don't have a succession plan after we invariably cut Poe and get rid of Butler. 2. We give him a 3 year, 30 million deal, but then if he starts showing his age or perhaps isn't as effective in our system, we're saddled with a decent sized contract for at least a couple years. Now suddenly we're paying 3 defensive tackles way more than they're worth while having holes to fill elsewhere in the roster. I was hoping he was looking at something in the 7-8 million range, in which case I'd say go for it. Once $11 million was leaked as the going price, I'm thinking we should bow out of this one and go for a more affordable option like Bailey if we still think we need to shore up the position. 
    • There has been a bill in the Congress of the USA for decades asking for reparations. YC or AM didn't invent the idea. What I find funny is that only Democrats are being asked to take positions on Reparations. How many Republicans sponsored that bill? ZERO. And no, none of them is asked a single question about it. The reparations issue is not a presidential issue (alone). Before the bill even make it to the desk of any president, it needs to go through the normal process in Congress, which will require 100 sponsors to make it to the floor. But strangely, none of the people running for office, who will be discussing this are even asked about it. And you want to tell me ... this is NOT about re-electing a Russian Agent? I really hope you actually understand how politics works in the USA.
