I don't think Rivera is the sexy hire at all. The young OC type or college guy like Rhule, Riley, or Day or something would be the attempt at a sexy big name hire imo. Rivera isn't what I expected for that reason. Especially if paired with promotions to our existing FO guys. That's the opposite of sexy imo.

I really don't get Urban Meyer as a GM. Sounds like too much of an experiment. I'm not even sure I really liked the idea of him as a HC after the Spurrier years. He'd probably retire in a year or two anyway. 

 

I can get behind Riverboat Ron. Certainly would be happier with him than Marvin. Hoping we hang onto KOC and promote some of our guys to the GM and various other FO roles.

Really, Rivera could do nothing with Newton, what’s he gonna do with Haskins?

Newton is a strange bird man. I dont think he takes to well to criticism. He is a Diva.  And if that is the case Rivera isnt a great fit for him. By all accounts Haskins is working hard. We'll see how it works out.

So the guy they’re likely naming the GM already knowing who he will want, and knowing he’s the guy he’ll hire, is the wrong way to do things? Isn’t that what people want....? 

 

Who is going to be the GM??  And why was he not named before hand and to at least give the outward appearance from a media standpoint that he was hiring the coach himself?  OH!  I know why,....because DAN IS DONIG THE HIRING!  

 

All the reports were that Dan had an "indepentent" group of "football people" advising him.  If Dan is, at some point, promoting someone within then why would I believe that that person (Kyle Smith???) was the one that picked Rivera?  

 

Bruce may be gone as a football decision maker,..but,..nothing much has changed .

And after all of that work he put in, it still didn’t stop him from committing false start penalties.

I mean, he got to a SB with Newton, that’s nothing now?

Brother I hope not. Petitbon was 4-12 as a head coach.

I don't buy that we hired Rivera already.

 

If true why the hell didn't our GM have a hand in the decision..... maybe he did. Heck we let Manusky sit on interviews to replace himself, and surprising no one liked none, and was somehow able to retain his job. Lets hope that is not the case this year.

It was the other way around, Moses was commenting on the consistent work O'Connell put in.

Rivera is not a bad choice, but this is classic Snyder trying to make the sexy, big name hire instead of going after a an up and coming young guy (Bieniemy)  IMO, he's tying to win the offseason and then we get what we normally do in the regular season

 

Not sure any retread can be considered "sexy". Big name? Sort of. But its a serious stretch to call this a "splash" move, for which Snyder is often accused of (many times erroneously). Is anyone really excited about this? Optimistic? Maybe. But in a sport where everyone wants the "next McVay", this is going 180 degrees the other way.

I’m going to keep saying this, the GM does not need to pick the coach.  If you want a coach to pick the GM., that’s fine.  

 

Presumably Eric Schaffer gets promoted to EVP or something over football ops, and he’s in on the hire.  

 

Ron will evaluate the Scouting department and then they’ll name a GM with roster control after the draft. 

 

The GM and the coach need to be a team.  One compliments the other.  There’s no reason to have the coach work for the GM.  At least not anymore.  Nor, in my opinion should the GM work for the coach.  They should be equal in authority.  With a higher up exec there to be a tiebreaker if necessary.  But the two should be working 100% together.

if it is rivera who would he bring in as DC?

Good question.  I haven’t heard any speculation about that yet.

Really because basically every team that gets to the playoffs including this year had a coach hired by the GM except NE who let Belichick have full control.  GM controls the daily operations and takes the heat for the staff and player personnel so yes he should be the one making the decision or atleast have a major say.

This sounds like something I'd post and I am a fan. Well said, good sir. A voice of... reason.

Incorrect. Buffalo had a HC before a GM. 

 

And, technically, Lynch was hired before Shanahan in SF, but Shanahan was basically the HC while coaching Atlanta's offense and Lynch was brought in after.
