Coaching

We know Rivera is on his way out the door.It's a great time for Cowher to take over. Cowher wants to be both GM and HC, got an up and coming star at Qb, and alot of good pieces to work with. However, could we see Andy Reid as HC next year?

Re: Coaching

They will not get rid of reid. He is a great coach, best in the league BUT no ring. I don't see them, as ruthless as they are, getting rid of him. They have been in the playoffs almost every year so he probably stays. I didn't like the cowher talk 2 years ago but now look at it more from a desperation stance in that we need someone who wants to win. I question Rivera's intensity and drive. Cowher can spit with the best of them. Never thought it was a sexy choice since he only won one super bowl and missed the playoffs many years. But I'm willing to try him out now. Don't like gruden; and dungy, while a great man IMO, is as intense as a mouse. Sounds like we need to blow it up again and start over. This is getting annoying...

I get why u say that...but intensity and commanding the respect of a team as well as a proven plan to get things done are not the simple measure of how much a person is jumping around on the sideline. I base my support for a guy like Dungy based off of the number(s) of former players who swear by the guy and his ability to lead a team. I do think The Chin would be much much better than a fellow like A Reid however.

Re: Coaching

It blows me away that the organization would hire a HC who must go thru the process of figuring out how to be a HC (what in the hedoublehockeysticks are these day long+ interviews all about?) But it is apparent that in as much as Rivera has always talked about this team being in process of developing---he was subconsciously talking about himself as a HC!!!! If Rivera really take charge of this team and puts a stamp of physical play as the cornerstone of his coaching philosophy on this team over the next 9 games...and the club Wins 5 of the next 9....I would be in favor of giving him one more season....rather than starting all over again!

I like, many of us like the person of Rivera and want to see him become a Winner...but he has to show he has figured some stuff out over the next 9...The way the Chicago games ended turned a step in the right direction into yet another reason to remove him as the HC...

For now I am all for Rivera finding his vibe as a HC...time and the next 9 games will tell...
