I think we win 1 more game and get the #1 draft pick.

Not a bad season at all.

Eh, all 3 NFCS guys get pretty intense and on players in game fairly consistant......and on refs.


Oh yea. I want my head coach yelling at everyone all game. That is just as bad as being a statue. Getting on the refs, sure. Being intense, sure. I want my head coach to coach the game, not spend his time do other things.

You cannot have it both ways. A head coach has too much on his plate to spend too much time getting on his players.

The original post was for a head coach that is a physical, grab the facemask, kind of coach. Those days are over.

No, but Gholston from MSU can. Not sure why a DE is such a high priortiy? Although I am all for getting talented players. You can't go wrong with talent. Well, if they don't all play the same position that is.

Probably bc DL play is as important as ever. Plus multiple DEs start and can play every down.

But DT, CB, and most importantly S rank ahead. WR probably does to. We probably need a more diverse TE as well. G too. We have lots of needs

I don't want my HC yelling all game or wearing his emotions on his sleeve.....

This is what I am talking about. Is this how fans act nowadays? Who hopes for losses?

Apparently I do if they continue running read option, zone coverage bullsht. Call me what you want to.

It all depends on which team shows up on game days... Good panthers or bad panthers.

My guess is that we'll win a game or two we "should" lose and lose a game or two we "should" win.

I'll also say that if the offense that played against the Giants and Seahawks shows up the rest of the season, we will finish 1-15.

Don't take things so literally. Or put words in my mouth either. Although around here it is almost expected.

We have needs sure. Someone mentioned Clowney, so I said Gholston. I never said we only need one more DE to be scary. We both know we have more holes to fill, but talent is talent. It ususally comes down to who has the most talent. Talent wins.

We have talent. Just not enough as of now. I see Norman as a young talent, but we could use another young stud. S, yes. TE, yes. DTs are fine for now, but it needs an infusion of young talent. And I agree a starting caliber G would be helpfull.

I see plenty of talent on this team. So, if it is not the talent. What is the problem? Mistakes, coaching, and Cam are the three main reasons we are where we are.

IMO. We are closer than most think where it comes to talent.

Pointing out we have Stewart, Williams, Tolbert in a list....doesn't actually tilt the talent scale like many suggests.

We are thin or weak at multiple key areas.

And if a guy like Clowney was available you draft him no matter who your DEs are.

DTs? We have bandaids at DT.

Animated, yes. Grab a facemask and yell, not so much. That kind of stuff just doesn't happen anymore in todays NFL.

Personally, I think Rivera is still trying to find his footing. He may turn out to be a great coach, or he may never figure it out. There is just no way to tell after 20 games. Or at least that is how I see it. Some folks can't wait for Rivera to figure it out cuz they want their victories now. I am wlling to give him some time, but I know I am in the minority.


The problem with this is while Rivera is figuring things out, while we're waiting to see whether he becomes a good coach or never figures it out, Cam's career is going down the drain. By the time Rivera figure things out, Cam will be a draft bust because he didn't get the right kind of support. In which case, we will have to go on another search to find a franchise QB. Steve Smith will be retired. D-Will will be on another team as the back up to a back up. J-Stew's running ability will be going out of it's prime. And Kuechly will be barely keeping things together on the defensive side of the ball.

I could see if we had an experienced QB, who is matured in running an offense. Yet this guy is still learning, and as many have said, this current offense seems to have stalled his development. (You can't begin your career running a 75% pro offense, and then the next year revert to the more comfortable college system. That's like entering you're sophmore year in high school, and the teacher begins teaching on the alphabet.) So my biggest problem is even if Rivera finally figures it out a couple of years from now, Cam will be ruined and we will have to start all over again looking for a QB.

Now, I'm a pretty patient guy, I understand this is Rivera's second year as a head coach. Yet my thing is he has seriously regressed from last year. I'm crazy about this team, and hope we go 19-0 every year no matter how many mediocre free agent talent we have start for us going into the season. Yet even I know there will be bumps in the road for this young coach, and I'm willing to go through them. However as I said, Rivera has seriously regressed. It goes beyond bumps in the road. It comes down to you don't know what you're doing at this point. You don't know how to fire your team up for a primetime game, to you don't know how to rebound after a tough loss. Your players can't half tackle, and you aren't feeding your billion dollar running backs. This tells me Rivera is way in over his head.

So unless I see some significant change when we play the cowboys (Rivera has two weeks to prepare for this one), if he can't fire his team up after all the criticism it is receiving and losing the guy who said we are winning the superbowl, if we come out flatter than day old soda, I'm sorry but Rivera got to go.
