Maybe it's just me but I got the feeling Dwill is on his way out and the read option is here to stay... Guess we'll have a better idea on that come sunday in Chicago

To me, and it's just my opinion... Rivera made a point to emphasize that all the decisions ended with him. The way he said it, the authority with which he said it... Just leads me to believe that this is "new" for him. Which leads me to believe that Marty probably had the final call. Not anymore


Ok interesting.

I really haven't thought about what a GM does day to day

What a bunch of softball lobbers.

Imagine if that press conference had taken place in New York.

The reporters who cover the Panthers are pathetic.

Couple things stand out to me:

The decisions stop with me......... ok buddy, show it or pack it in.

Things are gonna change.......ok, lets see if you were being held back.

Mentioned several times and he looked like he was "holding his tongue" more than normal. I think he got a fire lit in his a$$ at 8:30 am. Heck, he probably thought that call-in was his pick slip at first.

How so?

I'm clueless about how these things work. Did Marty have any day to day input?


When McDermott was asked a couple of weeks ago if Beason would be back in the middle he replied that would depend upon at least 4 people's opinion, including Hurney's. Why in the fug Marty's opinion on who started where or when on game-day is beyond me, but that is what he said.

Marty had more say so than most think.

After seeing that, something tells me that Rivera has been held back by Marty. We will get a chance to see what what RR has as a head coach with FC.

At the worst, he gets fired after the season... Which we all figured was the case this am after hearing the Hurney news.

At best, we might find that Rivera really is a great coach, being held back by his GM

Time will tell on this one...10 games is plenty to evaluate him and his staff...


How does Marty Hurney hold back Rivera's dumbass play calls?

Well being that Marty has already taken FULL responsibility for our record, and based off of RR's presser, and more stuff coming out of the woodwork about Sean McDermott not being in control with who he can even start... I'd say that ole Marty was the final say with a lot of things... Btw, the HC isn't in charge of play calling on the offensive side of the ball. That falls on Chud... And I'm pretty sure that IF* Marty was instructing this coaching staff to run those plays... Well then we're in for a world of change come Sunday

Also, I don't know of you missed the contempt RR had when referring to putting Gamble on IR... It's almost as if HE would have done that LAST week, but was unable to do so because he was handcuffed by Marty.

I think Jerry has to approve every question that is asked.
