If this is a repost, well, in the immortal words of Herman ****ing Edwards, get over it.

He'd certainly be an upgrade, and snaking him from San Diego would definitely hurt them. I'd have no problem with it.

My thoughts on this.


Ron Rivera cut his teeth as a defensive player with the Bears in the 46 defense.
He coached LBs under Jim Johnson with an attacking 43 blitz scheme.
He was the DC for the Bears in a cover two, a defense that took that team to a SB.
He took over as DC midseason on a Chargers 34 defense that lost it's best player at the start of the season, and yet revitalized that defense after taking over.

This guy has shown he can get players to achieve, and has shown he has unmatched flexibility when it comes to scheme.

He might be my top choice next to Jim Shwartz.

Teams have to abide by the Rooney Rule and interview at least one minority candidate.

What if he interviews Herm before he fires him?

Great resume as a positional coach and coordinator, but it makes you wonder why he's been passed over countless times for head coach positions.

Every asshat reporter at ESPN has a different "source" feeding them bullshit.

Could be the same reason that Spagnuolo hasn't been hired by anyone yet.

He has the resume, but doesn't interview all that well.

Actually he is a 4-3 coach.

He just didn't change the team mid season to be a 4-3. If he stays hes going to have to stay coaching the 3-4, but Remember the Defense when he was on the Bears?

Not sure if they ran a 4-3 or a 46 though?

I really don't think the Chiefs are going to have a problem interviewing a black guy along the way of finding a new HC.

He ran a cover two in Chicago.

• It is expected around the league that new Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli will fire coach Herman Edwards. But the word in Kansas City is that the situation is still being mulled.
Edwards has a big fan in owner Clark Hunt.

Don't be surprised if Edwards attends Pioli's introductory news conference on Wednesday. Pioli is expected to meet with Kansas City coaches Thursday.

If Pioli does fire Edwards, don't be surprised if San Diego defensive coordinator Ron Rivera gets a look. Rivera interviews in Detroit on Wednesday for the Lions' head job.

No doubt forced upon him by Lovie. And there was definitely no love lost between the two of them.

That's what I've read about RR. His interviews' leave a lot to be desired.

No doubt.

However, I haven't looked it up to verify this, but it doesn't seem that the Bears defense has played at the same level it did when Rivera was running it.

That, I admit, is just speculation on my part.

Speaking of Al Saunders, is he staying in St Louis? Would you guys still take him over Gailey?

Doubtful, even if Haslett stays, from what I've been told.

Until we know what we are going to do on teh head coaching front, I'm not going to concern myself with coordinators.

A good HC is going to find good people to work under him.

As far as Saunders and Gailey are concerned, I am fairly ambivalent.

How about we let him interview his wife Dallas. She is a woman so that covers the minority thing, but in a different perspective. And she is Parcells daughter.

Not speculation - their defense has gone right in the shitter since Rivera left.
