Ah yes, get rid of the their 2 best edge rushers then blame it on the DC. Yes they've been bad this season but that didn't help.

This is probably the 1st of many firings in Washington this season.

We run a 4-3 with no middle linebacker worth a damn, and always have our corners play 10 yards off the ball. Even with an all first rounder DL, you lose playing football like that.

The defense was pretty bad before we traded them. 
 

saw your edit after. Still this has been a long time coming.

So is Rivera Black Friday shopping now for new assistants? Or just going to not have a DC or DB coach for the rest of the seasons?

I'm convinced that Rivera hasn't been fired because Bienemy would probably be promoted "interim" and God forbid actually win a couple games ala Rich Biasaccia/Raiders messing up the draft.

Yeah, we were 31st in total defense with them. We had 6 first round picks on defense and they used our last two second round picks on defenders as well. Do you think Del Rio wasn’t given enough to work with?

Rivera hasn’t been fired because there’s probably no point. He’s done at the end of the year anyway and Harris probably doesn’t want to fire him mid season due to the respect he garners around the league.

Rivera is running the defense, and there is a separate coach for the safeties and corners who reported to the DBs coach……for whatever reasons.

I don't think for a second Harris cares what people think around the league. 

Its just a shame the NFCS Division exists or a full on tank the rest of the year would be in full effect.
