I haven't concluded that Rivera needs to be fired.
i want to see how he responds to struggles and failures like what is going on this year. if he comes out on top, or at least us finishing better than last year, then i'll be cool with him staying. main thing for me is growth and i look at the whole season, not just parts of it.
if i see no ability to recover and make things better from here out, and if the team doesn't improve...esp. if there is a regression then we should move on. i'm not gonna decide one way or the other though until the end of the season.
i am really curious to see what this team looks like personnel-wise at the end of the season with him having more control.

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.
