Ron Rivera wants a new nickname

"Riverboat Ron" is too crazy.

Straight-laced Ron Rivera decided to let his hair down in 2013. Almost losing his job woke something in the third-year head coach, causing him to take risks on fourth-and-short. Now he's known as "Riverboat Ron," the gambling, fun-loving boat captain. Ron wants you to call him something else, however -- because, frankly it's all a bit childish.
