LOL if you think Shula/Rivera will ever go anywhere, mediocrity is rewarded in the NFL- Example Marvin Lewis

I still don't understand why people want Ron fired. There are ~20 other teams in the league who would scoop him up in a heartbeat. 

He needs to get rid of Shula though.

Ron says "we" have to do better because he considers himself a part of the team. He was part of the 85 bears I am sure he understands personal responsibility. You guys just want him to be overly humble I feel. Please name another coach that is available right now that can win the Panthers a super bowl. 

Rivera is very humble. Humility isn't an issue. Heck, Rivera might be the finest person we've ever had coaching this team.

But he's not a good enough head coach to win a Super Bowl.

As to who might be, just take a look at the names being interviewed by other teams (including Steve Wilks).

They're getting looked at because teams believe they could win them a Super Bowl.

I really don't mind being stuck with an 11-5 team headed to the playoffs. I'm not mad about having a team go to the playoffs four out of the last five years. I'm not mad at all with the fact we went to the Superb Owl two years ago and have at least a shot at it this year.

If you've got a coaching staff that can get 11-5 out of a team riddled with injuries to their starters (and we really need to throw Cam in there with his still recovering shoulder early on), an unprecedented turnover in management right at the beginning of training camp and then a massive scandal with ownership that is going to result in sale of the team. 

Heck -- Rivera, Shula and Wilks should get coaching staff of the year nods for getting those results out of this cast of walking wounded, JAGs, old timers, retreads, benchsitters and rookies. And somehow we've got the least penalized team in the league -- something that has surely helped offset our turnover differential and speaks miles to the idea that the team is at least well-controlled and coached.

Considering the basket of lemons the team was presented with this year, they've made a hell of a lot of lemonade.

Yep! We've got fairly pleasing results playing with house money.  I just can't complain. Looking at what we've had to deal with during Rivera's era, what we've achieved has been, well,  unbelievable from some perspectives.

But the narrative around here is still that RR and Shula suck, no matter what. Don't point to any evidence to the contrary. Don't even think about giving them any credit.

The Huddle is becoming that place where a few old drunks at the end of the bar just ruin it for everyone else. I'm hoping either they move on or eventually see the light, but it's looking more and more like it's time to find a new place to hang out. There are just too many trolls, curmudgeons and axe-grinders around here. Can't even enjoy a winning season anymore.
