Given. But if we're being objective, not all of his bad throws were attributable to poor protection.
A WCO wouldn't be entirely devoid of deep throws but would be less dependent on them than a Coryell system.
I don't dispute that Rivera is a good person, but I'd stop short of saying I'm pulling for him. I'd add that some of the things he says and does as a coach aren't necessarily"good person" things.
Mind you, a good coach does often have to do things that a good person might find reprehensible, but some of Rivera's post firing comments are a tad distasteful to me.
