It wouldn’t be the same as Snyder. Snyder hired the coaches he fired. He was an absolutely impatient imbecile. This wouldn’t be the same.

Harris isn’t firing anyone until after the season. It just feels good to say fire them now. Lol.
I wouldn’t say there’s nothing to lose… first year as owner and you fire your HC during the season? Doesn’t really reflect well. It’s a total Snyder move, the kind of stench we’re trying to get rid of. And you’re sending a bad message to the locker room.

The grown up move is to clean house once the season is over.

I think you might be right but a bit off on positioning. we will see Harris wait till end of season to hire a GM but we will be behind other teams that already had FO in place in HC hiring so will ride with Ron as HC for one more year.

People forget what a badass Darrell Green was. He beat olympians (Herschel, Willie Gault, Rod Woodson, etc.)

I disagree with the bad reflection if Harris fires Ron in year 1.

It may be Harris´ first year as the owner - yet it is definately not Ron´s first year as a proven loser.

I´d say fire him if you have a prospect replacement available, don´t fire him if you don´t.

This makes sense but it also would strike me as really hard to believe that the locker room already hasn't lost faith in at the minimum JDR and RR. It's plain as day how inept at least the two of them are. Some could see it as an itchy trigger finger, some could see it as years of poor on field product that won't be tolerated any longer. It's not like it's their first year here. It's overdue and everyone knows it. I just don't see it painting Harris in a bad light at all and I'd be willing to bet the majority of ppl paying attention to the situation would view it the same. Maybe that includes the layers maybe it doesn't.

I just find it hard to believe the locker room would take it as a bad message. Everyone respects Ron the person. Ron the coach, talent evaluator, GM and the like? Needs to be fired.

Even if JDR goes first. It would be SOMETHING. I'll be satisfied personally when just something.... is done.

What exactly is there to gain by firing him now? We saw Snyder fire coaches during the season, when did it ever work out for the positive?

I think it just ends up being a bad look for ownership.
I agree.

It would be one thing if Ron has lost the locker room, but I haven't seen any indication of that yet.

We're a poorly coached team but guys are still saying all the right things.

The year is wasted anyways, I see no harm in letting him stay until the end of the year. Doing it now is basically just to satisfy our thirst for blood.

In the meantime Harris can use this team to figure out how he wants to build the next front office. GM has final say over everything? Assemble his list of top GM candidates, etc.

It's funny how fans are basically asking Harris to do things that Snyder did.

That's a bit of an over exaggeration given this regime, mostly, has had years, not one year, to figure it out.

First you come in here and suggest we have no shot of losing to your miserable team, and now you further try to ruin our good time by suggesting Ron fuckin Rivera gets some sort of reward for righting the ship. The whole notion that Ron bought stability is a joke. He just happened to be the only person desperate enough for another job that would work for Snyder. Just happened to be here when Snyders bs finally caught up with him. Damn you G-1. Lol.

oops! my bad.

The way that play unfolds I'd say it was on one of the LBs (Davis?) and Curl sees it too late to make a difference.

Agree

We have literally decades of poor LB play in coverage
