After Dallas was defeated, coach Ron Rivera wanted to see how his team would respond. He barely mentioned the playoffs-only admitted that his team’s hopes are still slim. Instead, he publicly wanted to know whether his players would learn from a major loss. If they don’t, “it will be a waste of time,” he said.
Although Rivera’s comments can be interpreted as a challenge to a defense that gave up 56 points, it is also likely to be a challenge to Hynek-he only completed 38% of his passes against Dallas and was very struggle. When Rivera said substitute Kyle Allen “may” participate in part of the team’s last two games, he also caused a small controversy. Rivera said to let Allen play, it depends on the scene.
In the game against the Hawks, Hynek appeared determined not to lose his job when he played. The quarterback is very precise-hitting his first 11 goals before throwing an unfinished one. Completion comes from a variety of throws, from tilt and deep throws to game action launches.
