    RIVERA EXCITED

    Saying he had to “look at opportunities,” Ron Rivera nonetheless is pleased to remain the Chargers' defensive coordinator.

    “I'm excited to be coming back,” said Rivera, who interviewed Wednesday for the Lions' head coaching job that went to Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz the next day. “It's a good situation. I like what we have in terms of players, and I like the situation with Norv.”

    Rivera, under contract for two more years, is not talking with any other teams with head coaching vacancies.

    I like this a lot. I like that he gets the offseason and camp to be the man, to mold things the way he wants to.

    Good stuff!

    I think Norv giving him more control than he had with the Bears is key, Rivera is in charge of the defense he can bring in his guys, when he really couldn't with the Bears because of Lovie Smith wanted the defense a particular way.

    continuity at its finest, we needed desperately to see what type of defense he can drum up with a full offseason to prepare.

    Yep, I think that shows that Norv is allowing Rivera to bring in his guys, and as a coach that's something you'd want. Norv is basically treating him like the Head Coach of the Defense.

    Try not to let Pittsburgh score 35 on us next time Ron. And try to devise a way to get pressure on Ben when he's being blocked for by one of the worst offensive lines in football mmmkay? Also, the 28 sacks we had last year have to improved on mmkay?

    Dude we have two very good players on defense- Jammer and Williams. The rest of our guys cannot hit for ****. Our safety and corner blitzes are hilarious as that's all that Ron could do because when we rush four it's over.

    We need Merriman back and another couple of assasins in the middle of the field.

    Sounds good to me. I loved him as a player. In fact, I met him and he is a nice guy. Just too bad he couldn't learn his lesson after several alcohol related run ins with the law.
