This loss falls entirely on the coaching staff. 4 weeks into the season with our only win coming against a terrible JAX team. The same problems persist that were evident in the preseason, a porous run defense, constant mistakes, penalties. Stupid things, but what hurts most is the coaching staff's direct impact on this loss.

Failure to prepare for Devin Hester is incomprehensible.
Rivera openly admitting at the half that he is "surprised" that the Bear's are running so much. Well duh. Our run defense is next to last. Not everyone strays away from the run game when it is successful like we do and start forcing balls down the field.

Continuing to force players on the field who obviously just aren't fit to play in this league. Legedu Naanee is arguably the worst starting Receiver in Panther's history. He get's no seperation, he get's no height on jump balls, he's too good to block in the run game, he drops passes. He is a JOAT at doing everything wrong, meanwhile LaFell sits on the bench and no other Receiver on the roster is given an opportunity to show what he has. Jordan Pugh was placed in the endzone today to return kicks. Why? Goodson? Armanti? Kealoha? What is the commitment to get this kid on the field? He has yet to do anything even admirably and yet Rivera keeps searching for ways to get him out there. I just don't understand where the commitment to certain players is coming from. It's like the Fox era all over again.

Lastly, the red zone play calling is atrocious. To go into the spread offense every single time we get down there, abandoning our running game which was dominating. We left numerous on the field-again-due to the coaching staff pissing away golden opportunities.

Through the first 4 games of the season, the coaching staff get's a C-.
The positional coaches have done well enough, but the guys in charge just don't seem to have a firm grasp on things. A lackadaisical training camp has resulted in an undisciplined squad, further hindered by the top guys' ability to manage the basics.
Passing up great opportunities for FG through the first 3 weeks, poor clock management, it's just rather apparent Rivera is a first time head coach. I keep hoping he'll learn from his mistakes, but so far he hasn't. Shame. Coaching staff just pissed away the offense's best game yet.

So, at 1-3, and about to take on some good teams, a C-.

Sadly, no crying in football.

Coaches can't play for them, can given the way the d and STs look, maybe they should.

The ability to stop the Run is totally all the coaching staffs fault.

Why aren't we undefeated? Half of our team is on IR, we're starting a rookie QB, and our head coach is in his first season. WHAT THE fug IS WRONG?

eh, McDermott learned from one set of mistakes in the first game (all out blitzing) but I'm not sure how much of today's inability to stop Forte is on coaching. Might just be lack of experienced DTs. Chud's had some questionable playcalls (any call where Naanee is the main target) but the way our offense is producing, you can't call it poor coaching. No qualms about Rivera. If anything, our STs is the worst coached unit.

lol at trying to pin this on the players.
Run D tightened up after the first half. Special Teams is a coaching thing. You don't need superstars on special teams. kicking to devin hester is a coaching decision. Making boneheaded play calls in the red zone is a coaching decision, and now we have a losing record and are down from .500 by two games because of it.

That is what's tragic.

With the hand Rivera and staff has been dealt, I'm not too upset with the coaching staff and it's results.

However, Murphey or whatever the special team's guy name is HAS GOT TO GO. We are still terrible on that side of the ball. Which is embarrassing.

Chud needs to find some sort of balance with his playcalling, or Rivera needs to tighten the reigns on Chuds' total control on offensive playcalling, because the guy is going way too pass happy with our rookie QB.

AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE FIX THAT REDZONE PLAYCALLING. SH*T!

Mcdermott is meh, given the hand he's been dealt with 2 allpro starting LBs out for the year. A revolving door at #1 CB every other week, 2 rookies at DT (one who can't stay on the LOS during run plays) He's doing alright..

This is a rookie staff.. we've got to realize that and lower our expectations.
