True, John Fox isn't here any longer. But Rivera is the same type of coach in a lot of ways, at least this year he has been. Last year, we looked like anything but a John Fox-coached team. This year we do. It's been like watching 2010 all over again at times. I do have to give JR credit for getting rid of Jake in spite of us having to pay him salary even while he was with another team.

but paying jake all we did didn't effect the cap. he should never have been given that contract to begin with, esp. after that miserable excuse for a playoff game that still gives me nightmares and bad gas. the previous two seasons he missed a lot of time and i think he went on IR both years? either way...you don't give a guy a new contract like that at that stage in his career with those kind of results.

rivera does seem kind of foxlike in that the team is trying to play it safe. that HAS to change now if they have any hopes. they have to play like they've got nothing to lose and just lay it all out.

Only if we no-show like we did against Tampa, NY, and Seattle. That's unacceptable.

if rivera can get this team to 7-9 after a 1-4 or 1-5 start i will be wholly impressed

that would be typical Panther's fashion.

To me it depends on how we lose games. I don't know which is worse for a coach on the hotseat..getting blown out and not even being competitive or being in games and screwing up at the end with terrible management. Rivera hasn't really been blown out that much at all...it's just the consistent end of game screw ups that happen because he doesn't know what he's doing and so he can't relay what to do to Cam (who also doesn't know what the hell he's doing).

If you are purely looking at records then I think less than 7-9 gets him fired...which means that out of Dallas, @Chicago, @Washington, Denver, Tampa, @Philly, @KC, Atlanta, @SD, Oakland, @NO we have to win 6 games.

With how we have been playing recently there isn't a chance in hell we win 6 more games. IF we improve and get guys healthy then I think we can beat Dallas, Tampa, KC, Oakland and POSSIBLY New Orleans to end the year. Even in doing that we only have a record of 5-11. IMO that gets Rivera ousted and we go hunting for a new coach and a new GM.
