Starting the season.. I never would have thought we'd be at this point. With talks of Kalil guaranteeing a super bowl.. Cam coming into his second year.. all positive things. No a dose of reality. We are 1-5, fired our GM, and thoughts of starting over again with a whole new regime. Just can't believe it. Things can change so fast in the NFL.

Yeah, I was wrong about JR being the final word on hires...

BUT, I was right about him not wanting Rivera and that's why Hurney was fired.

Another two seasons down the toilet. fug Ron Rivera.

We know Harbaugh wasn't the guy JR wanted.

Right, all of you are now saying that JR isn't making the big decisions, but guess who's making the big decision in the other thread that's hot right now about D-Will getting traded?

JR didn't want Rivera, but he's still here. JR doesn't make the final decisions, but other teams are contacting the Panthers about D-Will?

Right....sorry, not buying it.

Not necessarily. The reports from Gantt at the time indicated that we did in fact contact Harbaugh and he basically blew us off.

That's what was behind JR's snippy comment about not knowing Harbaugh.

"It gives me comfort that he's a former player -- a much better player than I ever was," said Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, a former Baltimore Colts receiver. "But the fact that he was a former player and I was a former player, it seemed to be a pretty quick bonding with us."
"Since we've been in business we've had four head coaches," Richardson said, referring to Fox, George Seifert and Dom Capers. "His approach, his demeanor, his style, his experience, the fact that he's been a former player, seemed to me to be perfect for us at this particular point in time."


5]"He brings an approach and resume that we believe lends itself to success," Richardson said.


So needless to say I call bullshit.

Mort will just say anything. I'll believe it when/if Ron is canned.

I would take this serious if it wasn't from Mort, who is the villiage idiot of reporters.
