"I will be honest with you, I feel as a first-year head coach, you're not getting the calls that you would like," Rivera said Monday.

Needs a little more responsibility on his shoulders to get this team disciplined.

It's so easy to blame the refs. No coach gets all the calls they want. Just sounds like excuses for a very undisciplined team at this point.

Context. He answered a question after he had already addressed it once: http://www.panthers....35-715eff1dd36b

That comment is taken way out of context. I love how the article makes it seem like that is his excuse for the penalties.

Or the OP not fully reading the article and skimming the write up to contextually fit his ignorant opinion.

It's absolutely true. Gross and Wharton and Smith didn't suddenly start holding more because of his coaching after a decade in the league. The refs are calling it more, simple as that.

John Lynch(retired player, Fox announcer) was at the Referee training seminars and said that the refs are being told this year "when in doubt, throw the flag". I think this would explain a lot because even if a guy is falling down or just being pushed down on a good block a flag is being called for holding or PI because the ref isn't seeing the penalty but is doubting it happened without one. Doesn't seem like the right way to go about it to me.

There's no right answer for media questions. If the team wins games, Rivera could come out and sing Christmas carols while ignoring the media and I'd be content.

I've seen some of the worst calls against the panthers this year in recent memory. the shockey OPI against the Bears was a joke and everyone knows it.

You should know that you can't pull up videos on your screen at the in&out burger.
