I'm not sure what happened but the same players we tho were garbage now playing with fire and hunger and making plays all over the place... Tackling improved big time. I have not seen so much effort from the Panthers in over 4 years...

There is absolutley no quit to this team...
They have been playing hard all year...

The defense IS the story of this team...

This may be one one of the better defenses in the NFL right now....
I don't know how many teams have given up fewer yards over the last 4 weeks, but there can't be many...

This won't be a popular statement on this forum to say the least, but if they keep playing like this Rivera may keep his job after all.

I HATE TO SEE IT BUT THESE PLAYERS SEEM TO BE PLAYING HARD FOR THEIR COACH.

I guess these "who should be the next coach" threads should quit till next year.

I'm not gonna go that far, although he's the HC so so e of it goes to him.

I'd say Props to these players. 1-6 coming into today's match up, and they continue playing like they're trying to clinch home field advantage through out the playoffs. This team doesn't quit, I can tell you that, and as much as I hate to admit it, it's a reflection of the coaching.

I think defense improved big time... our offence is an issue. OL is terrible and we badly need another WR.

the players are learning and growing, the coaches are growing and learning.

It really is a beautiful thing to witness.

Players seem to think highly of Rivera & they always play hard for him. Rivera is a defensive mastermind & knows the game. He has struggled managing the game as a HC but you can see him learning & improving every week. Doesn't matter, though. Team could reel off 9 straight to finish 10-6 & people would still bash him.

The season is lost when that number in the loss column exceeds 7. Until then, I will keep on keeping on. What can it hurt?

Hater...

Blame the man when he did a bad job but also give him props when he did a good job. Rivera called a great game today and execution was almost perfect. I hope and wish Rivera will continue his success.

Thank JR, he's the one that put everybody in the organization on notice by firing his lapdog.

It helps Cam if we keep the same staff, regardless of scheme. What those staff memebers have to understand is how to develop the playbook and make it the most oppertunistic for what Cam and the rest of the players on offense can do. Moreover, they need to make sure they draft guys that are going to come in and contribute to that same style. I think we're on the right track. However, we still need to do a better job of closing out games. We gave them 2 extra possessions today on a serious lack of execution. In the past thats hurt us. Today thankfully, we had enough of a lead. Not there yet, but learning.

sad that we are only like 4 stupid coaching mistakes away from 6-2 (Falcons no man coverage with safety help over top and Sherrod Martin coming in, Seahawks cluster fug of mistakes, Cowboys full retard mode at end, and Chicago full retard mode at end)

:(

even if we take away the seahawks game and the cowboys game from the coaches the Chicago and Falcon games are inexcusable and a Madden 2002 player could have made better calls than that.

I'm not a hater! But just like any evaluation of work I look for the body. Truth is this guy losses the team three out of the five losses on him i mean 6! I'm sorry he's in dog house with...me... Just enjoy your high of the win like I'm doing but fug that guy because the strongest of swords are forged in the hot tests of fires and we had the lead the majority of the time

If RG3 wasn't so fast and athletic, the Dline woiuld have had 8-10 sacks IMO... The team is fired up... If the team has not given up, like the Bucs did to Morris last year, RR has to be doing something right....

Our defends has been playing better, we're still giving up to many completion's because of zone coverage, but we are better.

I'm not going to call his job saved after one game or even say I'm optimistic, but credit where it's due. This game was called well, planned well, and the players were prepared to play it. If they keep playing with some intensity every week and the playcalling doesn't regress he may earn himself a year under the new GM to see what he can do.

But don't you think for a moment that if a hot GM candidate agrees to come here on the condition that he be allowed to replace the coach this staff won't be shown the door....no matter what they do for the rest of the year.

The organization may be doing itself a disservice by not giving Rivera another year. The defense is obviously moving in the right direction. The D-line is playing with purpose, and the backfield is laying the wood. We effectively shut down Bob3 today, and limited the NFL's third leading rusher. Let's go!
