Re: Ron Rivera Thread

The way I see it is simple ... treat everyone with respect .. become color blind cause we are all the same .. the culture you grow up in has a lot to do with a persons attitude .. most people are kind and when injustice is being done we need each otherís back .. I understand the cop deal I really do .. major reform is needed !! What I canít wrap my mind around is the Anti American attitude and the whole everything offends me attitude (redskin name for example) .. is it ever gonna end ?

Re: Ron Rivera Thread

I'm excited about Ron Rivera as our HC!!!

I'll talk about my real opinion in a non Redskins post.

Not calling anyone out because I just did the same thing recently. I'm as guilty as anyone else of this.

Let's get back to strictly football talk here.

Re: Ron Rivera Thread

Heard Al Galdi commenting on some recent RR quotes. I caught the tail end of it on the radio but Galdi's gist was RR was basically saying the Skins can be patient year 1, they didnt have to make big splashes in FA and dont view year 1 under RR as a win now mode.

It makes perfect sense. Use year 1 to set up year 2, when we can have expectations.

I'm fine with those expectations but the closer we get to football season with no progress on coronavirus the more I worry about postpones/cancellations.

Yeah ... it could go many different ways at this point. Not to always be posting "I heard galdi say on the radio .. " but he and doc we talking the restart. I, like always, got in the car half way though so I dont know the report/context but a couple of things ..

- Teams may travel on game day if it allows. So skins would travel to Philly, Pitts, NY etc on game day. To avoid the hassle of trying to secure and clean hotel rooms.

- They mentioned possibly pushing kickoff back from 1 pm to allow teams to pull this off better ... if there are no fans in stands.

- Steelers for some reason they said may have fans in stands even if other teams wouldnt. I do not know the context for that comment. I guess its hot spots vs cold spots. I think there will need to be a uniform policy league wide though. Competitive balance.

----------

NHL was looking at Florida or Vegas as the 2 hub cities for their games ... but now are looking to Canada, given Florida and Vegas being hot spots. That doesnt give them much time. I wonder if the NHL timeline may be pushed back.

--------------

MLS is currently playing in the bubble in Florida that the NBA is set to use.



^^ they say this costs $65 per meal ... NBA players are not having that. Literally and figuratively.

Re: Ron Rivera Thread

Well they did try to make a big splash with Cooper. That said year 1 definitely isn't win now mode but I'm sure everyone would like to see big improvements.

Yeah they did. I wonder if they mean like not adding pricey vets who would help in 2020 but are not long term pieces vs a young player like Cooper who would be a long term piece.

A la Earl Thomas. Good god, that contract is looking bad.

Ron Rivera Thread

I think youíll see Ron Rivera make some changes from how he did things with the Panthers. This is the second half of his coaching career. I believe he had an honest review of his time as the Panthers coach - what he did right and wrong. He will look at successful strategies and new tactics from other coaches.

BL - Rivera will be a different HC than he was before. He didnít win a SB with his last team and now he must change to get one.
