If we lose next week to the Seahawks, fire Rivera after the game.

JR would rather pay him to stand on the sidelines than stand at home. It is a principle issue with him.

Ron given time may grow into a very good coach. I think he will be around for the rest of his contract unless the Panthers get less than 6 wins, then all bets are off.

His coordinators are suspect, but as mentioned earlier they show flashes of brilliance.

This week was a drastic improvement in team performance and should give most fans reason for hope.

If the coordinators continue to evolve, Hurney likely won't make any changes to the staff during the off season.

When can we start talking about the draft?

I'm already looking at the safeties.

If were picking in the top 10 again(I hope not) we should finally address DT and grab johnathan Hankins...he's an animal and maybe well stop getting gashed for 8 yards a carry. Reid from lsu is good at safety

If we're firing any coaches, it should McDermott and/or Chud.

lol no.

The more I think about it, the more we might follow the Texans path with Gary Kubiak. First season 6-10, second season 8-8, third season 9-7, then a regression to 6-10 where the offense was elite (3rd in overall offense) but the defense was abysmal (32nd). After that season, they fired almost the entire defensive staff (DC, secondary coach, linebackers coaches) and hired Wade Phillips who implemented a defensive makeover. Went 10-6 last year with a rookie manning the QB position the 2nd half of the season and are 4-0 and arguably the best team in the league this season.

I just hope Rivera smartens up faster than Kubiak did and fires McDermott after this season.

you could very well be right here..............

but the folks on this board won't wait 4 games much less 4 yrs. for that improvement.

And they'll do what exactly? Be pissy, whine all the time, and demand the coach and GM be fired? Boy, won't that be terrible.

You should always be focused on the draft. If Hurney was more focused on the draft, he might learn how to draft well deep instead of bringing in scrub after scrub that can't return a punt.

LOL, so we're not even going to give Rivera a full 2nd season?

fug that. I wanted Harbaugh, but that ship has sailed. Firing Don Ron before his second season completes would be stupid in the least. If anyone needs to go, it's the guy who is responsible for the last 10 years of overpaying, draft trading that makes even Big Al in his grave go "WTF?", and continues to push for his failed draftees to stay on board because they "sell seats."

I say let Rivera stick around to see his system completely implemented, with guys who fit the style he's trying to establish, before we make a final judgment. I think he should show more input into the defensive playcalling, but I'm not even ready to fire McD before Hurlney.

If we don't win at least 8 games then house needs to be cleaned.

Didn't we already do that?

Coaches, like players, need a little time to develop as well. I agree he blew the clock management somewhat at the end of the first half (although I understand his thinking-- don't give the ball back to Ryan before the half).

Anywho, there's more to coaching than just play calling and clock management, and I think Rivera does pretty well on handling players. The jury is still out on developing talent (which is more of your assistants job anyway).

I'm not saying he's the next Lombardi, but it's too early to start firing head coaches.
