Is MH really just JR's puppet?


I think he is.

The posters in this thread that say MH should of been fired with Fox are right on the money.

As a fan, you have to accept the fact that you are going to have losing season and disappointing years. But after this season, it will be 5 straight years that the Panthers haven't made the playoffs and you could make a case that the Panthers have been one of the 2-3 worst teams in the NFL the past couple years.

What the hell happened to this rebuilding stage we were supposed to be going through after we cut Delhomme, Hoover, and let Peppers walk, etc?

Zod suggested in the "game grades" thread that Rivera could be fired during the season if they continue to lose and under perform. I'll be honest, and I hate to make a judgement this early into his HC career, but I'm not sure if Rivera is cut out to be a HC in the NFL. Still, it's early for him and deserves more time. A more accurate assessment of him can be made in a couple months.

Still - let's say RR is fired at the end of the year. Who would you guys want to replace him? Do we go after a young up and coming guy, or do we bring in an older, more authoritative guy that maybe didn't do so hot his first go around as a HC?

Do you think Mr.Richardson calls up Perry Fewell again?

Can John Gruden be persuaded to come out of the MNF booth? What about his brother, Jay?

Does Cam Cameron deserve another shot?

Again, I'm not trying to add an awful thread to the weekly over reaction Monday, just curious what your take is on RR and the coaching situation!

I want to be very clear about this: I'm not hoping for Rivera to be fired and I do think he deserves more time to implement his system and philosophies. I'd hate for our team to evolve into a franchise that is looking for a new HC every 2-3 years. Stability is an under appreciated ingredient to a winning forumla.



Cam Cameron sucks.
Fewell will be another Rivera.
No to both Grudens.

Mike Zimmer or my man "WADE PHILLIPS"!!!

WADE PHILLIPS DC, HOUSTON TEXANS

I used to hate this guy when he was at Dallas, but what he has done in Houston since last year is INCREDIBLE. Bring this guy to Charlotte!!!



Phillips taking a "demotion" from the Cowboys to the Texans ended up being a pretty good career move for him. I'm sure his name will get tossed around a lot after this season.

Would love him as a DC, but not a HC.

A little too laid back for me to give him the reins to this horse.

Wade Phillips.....hell and no. I'd rather bring back Dom Capers if that was the choice.

Didn't RR interview for numerous HC gigs before the Panthers? IIRC, he was always one of those guys for like a decade who was always getting interviews but never a job.

cant be as laid back as Rivera.
Wade is a defensive genius. Id love to see Phillips here with a 34 Defense.
Hes by far a better coach than Rivera.

Id love to have a guy like Mike Zimmer, but Id rather pay a guy like Phillips who has experience as a HC. Phillips is a guy who deserves the most to be another HC somewhere.

Sorta OT but what good would that do? I can't stand him either and I think he should have been fired..

If he's just going by what JR wants then it doesn't really matter what GM we have, right?

Honestly, we need a real D coordinator more so than a new HC.

That said, we need to start with Hurney.


Don't know about that....for example people think McD did a bad job against Atl.....which just isn't true.

McD needs talent. He has been trying to work around GLARING holes since he got here. Easiest fix seems to be just to give him some decent players

I see your point but the issue with Marty is his talent evaluation. He likes the expression "build through the draft" but how in the hell are we supposed to do that when only 1-2 of the players drafted are on the roster a couple seasons later?
