Would Mike Holmgren be an upgrade from Ron Rivera?

No - because I don't feel like a retread head coach is the way we need to go.

We need an up and coming coach who has their head in the current state of the game...not in the way it was.

I don't want to see a rehire unless they steal a legendary coach that is CURRENTLY coaching a successful team.

Maybe so, but it seems that a team as young as the Panthers would benefit from a veteran head coach. Not a knock on Chico because I know these things take time but, this team doesn't look very discipline. I just have a hard time believing that a hard nosed head coach would allow Steve Smith to keep doing the nonsense he's been doing as of late.

Better formula for a young team IMO:

Get a young up and coming head coach who has his head in the current game and surround him with coordinators who have some head coaching experience if you can. Find former HCs (or very long time coordinators) and let them do what their specialty is...but have a guy with some vision guiding the ship.

This obviously relies on also having a GM who shares a modern vision with the coach, but it lets you have vision and stay current while still having some hardasses on the staff that can provide discipline. Not to mention they can be there to help guide the young coach through some of the troubles of BEING a young coach.

YES, honestly it would be. Not to mention the fact that he is notoriously friendly with his QB! (Brett Favre)

Might allow Cam to actually make checks and call audibles!

Honestly I think he recused himself of being a GM because he wants to be a HC again. Kind of a conflict of interest if in his heart, he's already checked out as a GM. Would be Shocked if he's not on somebody's sideline next year

I want to see Chico given more than just cursory opportunity.

I don't know, but the infographic in this article on Holmgren leaving made me pretty depressed: http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8511711/mike-holmgren-retire-cleveland-browns-sale-official.

The only team with a worse record since 2010 than the BROWNS? Yep, you guessed it. The Panthers.

Would the west coast offense fit Cam?
