Uh, no.

Remember week 17 last year? There wasn't a next week when there could have been.

That type of attitude won't get us post season play.

that quote seemed uncharacteristic of rivera. unless he wasn't saying it matter-of-factly, but sort of as a quip. i haven't seen the actual presser so i'm unsure of the context

I thought the exact same thing.

"There is always next week" is the sound of someone defeated. Rivera doesn't seem like that guy.

Agreed, but in that vein, any early word on Saints** injuries? It's never too early to be looking ahead to next Sunday after that goat fug yesterday.

But there is a next week. We play the Saints**.

He's right. The world doesnt end because the Panthers dropped their first game, even though 98% of the ppl here think it does. Even in week 17, theres a next week, a next week to train and get better(or worse). Take this loss and use it to get better. This team can do just that. They can look at their s**t performance from Sunday and get better.

My sentiments exactly regarding all of the apologists' remarks throughout the forum. It's just one game, the first game, and there's always next week typify a loser's mentality. However, it is true that when you get knocked down, the important thing is what you do when you get back up. In that respect, the rest of season CAN be different from that opening fiasco.

Wow, how nonchalantly uncaring of Ron Rivera to say. Your team just got outcoached by a fuging rookie college coach.

So Rivera should tell everyone that the sky has fallen? He should rage to the media to show everyone that he was upset over the loss? We should cry about this game instead of worrying about our next opponent? Instead of studying the Saints** tape in preparation for this Sunday, we should have a pow-wow on how that loss hurt our feelings. That will prepare us for next week. Rivera doesn't give up on the season because of one loss. You guys should try getting over it too. You all think you would make better coaches, but your vaginas would get in the way.

I don't get the vibe that people are mad about the loss, or simply losing. This team will lose plenty of times, but it's how they're losing and Rivera's responses to the losing that generates the negativity about him.

Coming out and simply not caring is God awful.

I don't see how not yelling at reporters and talking poo about his team to the public proves that he doesn't care. You make it seem as if better coaches can't wait until they're interviewed after a loss so they can cry to everyone about how awful they looked. Why does Rivera need to prove to you or me that he cares anyways?

That didn't work with singleterry or green very well. Who cares as long as he addresses it in the locker room?

Oh man I don't know maybe because we fans saw a team that flatout hardly cared when the ball was kicked off yesterday.

I'm sure he is pissed. Behind closed doors they got an earful of Rivera.


Why do people forget about how he raged at practice and made them all do it all over again, how he basically barked at the players for not giving effort?

Do people forget these things quickly or is it selective memory? You only choose to remember what you want to remember?
