Carolina Panthers @Panthers
When asked if team is evaluating free safety position, Rivera said team is evaluating all positions. "Still too early to consider changes"


Carolina Panthers @Panthers
Rivera says Sherrod Martin will get more reps at FS during practice this week. Told media Sherrod had a great camp.


Either he's really dumb, or this is eerily similar to his comments regarding Joe Adams' standing last week.

He said the exact same thing regarding Joe Adams last week. I expect Nakamura to see lots of pine this week.

Rivera said he'd prefer to be 6 games back of the division leader before he decides to change, 3 is not enough.

Maybe he doesn't want to scapegoat Nak because he acknowledges that the fail is on him and his staff moreso than the players.

Coaches would rather not appear impulsive in the media. Rivera made his decision to bench Naka on Sunday night. No need to tell everyone about it.
