So on a great Sunday afternoon, a day where the Carolina Panthers could possibly salvage what has turned out to be an awful season. Ron Rivera coached like a desperate man truly afraid of losing his job. Ron Rivera called plays much like a 15 year old would call plays on Madden. The first half Ron Rivera played ballsy....then he got SCARED.

Ron Rivera made it painfully obvious that he was terrified of Devin Hester's kick returning prowess and invented a new onside squib kick (if you can call it that). Ron Rivera in the fourth quarter was terrified of a big play giving plenty of space to a Brandon Marshall and Earl Bennett.

Rivera's scared coaching trickled down to the players. Captain Munnerlyn was terrified of even fair catching a punt. Brad Nortman so focused on kicking out of bounds kicks it out of bounds for a great length of six yards. DeAngelo Williams so focused on not fumbling trips over his own guards feet. This team was SCARED.

Agreed. Ron is a big fat puss and I can't wait until he's out of Carolina and his vagina is somewhere else.

Why was we so afraid of them scoring a TD if all they needed was a FG? He should have focused on stopping the little plays considering that's all the Bears needed to win the game. He has so much to learn that we might as well start with a new coach.

And if Hester returned a punt or kickoff Rivera would be an idiot for kicking to him! I didn't mind that kickoff stuff, the Defense wasn't giving up much. But the last drive was horrible play calling. They had success pressuring cutler and pressing receivers all game then they went back into Atl. mode and handed them the game! Thats what pissed me off

Listen I can understand it but kicking it to their 40 every single drive, even with the defense playing amazing, you were putting a ton of pressure on both sides of the ball for us. How many Carolina drives started within their 20? This score could have been much worse. At some point as the head coach you have to say "I believe in the team that I coach". Frankly, to have such little faith in his special team is shocking to me. I can understand the punt call but at some point you have to take a shot.

Its pretty pathetic but the lack of confidence is a reality. In regards to the kickoffs, as long as it was working, regardless of how ugly or stupid it may seem RR was going to stick with it and as hot as his seat is, I cant say that I blame him! lol!

I don't blame him for the decision, but do we really want to go forward in games with a coach that has a complete lack of faith in his own personnel! That's embarrassing.

kicking and punting the way we did was great strategy.

Dont forget that he was scared to kick a field goal at the end of the half because of the "swirling wind." Instead, he opted for the much more successful hail mary.

i saw someone point out yesterday that no one has even attempted a hail mary in that situation since '02.
