Can Rivera change your mind about firing him...

If he does change it around, Hurney will prolly become the most hated person in Panther land for a long time

Rivera would have to make the playoffs or even win the superbowl before I change my mind. If he could change this thing around in ten games, why did it take someone getting fired before you did your job? He should have never tried to adapt a college offense to the league (we've seen the league shutdown the wildcat offense), but after the complete blowout at the hands of the Giants on national tv, that should have been enough to can those plays. Smitty, a beloved vet, said to throw the plays away and burn them. Rivera and Chud ignored all that, and kept on with it. To me that is borderline sabotaging the team. Then you let Cam incriminate himself week in and week out, by letting him get on the podium after losses. Throwing him to the wolves of the media, those who want to get a good story any way they can. So nope, I want a coach who knows what he's doing. We have excellent talent on this team, and it is all being wasted because we don't have guys who can come up with a decent strategy on gameday. Either that, or they just don't care.

Would the following things make you change your mind about axing Ron...
1) the team goes on an extended winning streak, finishes at .500
2)Ron shows more emotion on the sidelines, maybe accidentally spits on some players while screaming at them...
3)Ron shelves the ludicrous read option and our backs start earning those millions...
Just a few off the top of my head... am sure you guys can add some of your own
Maybe for #1. I'm going to no for #2 because I think that would never happen. #3 wouldn't make much of a difference to me. That would only increase Rivera from awful to mediocre in my mind, because that still doesn't mean what we would do instead would work. Coaches have to be good, not just not terrible.
