If Ron Rivera is signed

24 posts in this topic

It will be the first Latino head coach hired since Tom Flores in 1994 with Seattle

i'm sure it means a lot to him, and given his resume, I'm thankful we have a reputable coach willing to come on board given this franchise hasn't been the greatest place to be in recent history

Interesting stat.

But if Ron gets hired, does that mean we will also quickly try to fill the assistant coach positions, or are we likely to take our time with those guys?

I would take some time with the coordinators. We got to evaluate people possible and make sure we don't screw up like we did with davidson.

I know he's not the first Hispanic person to do it, but would he be the first NFL head coach from Puerto Rico?

he's not from Puerto Rico, he's from California.

regardless, he was in fact the very first player with Puerto Rican heritage, so i would guess the same is true in coaching.

    • Yeah.... a single person of a religion encompassing over a billion people on the planet.  I don't see social media blowing up with the Muslim community in the western part of the world denouncing these attacks.  When Dillon Roof happened, there were a lot of Christians that denounced him immediately and repeatedly.  The point is that effective change for this extremism must come from within those communities.   The tide is turning, but people within those communities still feel fear of reprisal from within their culture for saying anything that could be construed as aligning with anti-Muslim stances.  Those dangers shouldn't be summarily dismissed for those that are brave enough to take this stand. I also stated that the media needs to do their part in accurately portraying these denouncements.  What I see instead is the media propping up ridiculous caricatures of people rather than your average person.  
    • The drive killing penalties he gets, lazy route running, and drops offset his potential upside. He is better suited as a tight end in this league
    • ..... the Panthers will usually tweet the most flattering videos.   (Pours gas on fire)
