Will 1-5 seal the deal?

Why is it so hard to put together a staff that knows what the hell is going on...?

Because the owner has put his trust in a man he believes is capable of doing that, but isn't.

When you add up all the different ways that this Rivera coached team has lost in his two seasons it becomes clear that what this team lacks more than anything is a staff that 1) can accurately anticipate what the other team is going to do and 2) can coach his players to execute a game plan that takes advantage of the opponent's weaknesses.

It seems like the best we get out of Rivera is a promise to return to fundamentals while sticking with failed strategies (like the read option). They don't make good adjustments during the game and clock management is atrocious. If you don't know how to coach on game day, you can't be a successful coach in this league. Rivera is not a good manager and not a good strategist. You need at least one of these skills to be successful. You need both to win the Super Bowl.

pretty much.

i think he knows things aren't working, but he has too much faith in his plan to deviate from it.

I wish but prob not.

People and even a lot of the media seems to think or believe that Rivera is a much better coach than his record. Dno but that's the case.

If the panthers some how mange to go under 6 wins they've got to strongly consider a coaching change.

Or his faith in a man that says "how high?" when JR says "jump"....,

I ask this to everyone: What has Rivera done to convince you he is a legitimate HC since arriving here?

Well, he has 21 games under his belt.....only 3 of which we didn't have a shot at winning late.

But...But...But... good teams win those type games, so we must not be any good. Right?

When the offense gets it back together. The wins should start. That won't stop all the complaining. But it should make hanging around here a poo ton more tolerable.
