Game Grades: Panthers at Bears

If we had an A + team poor coaching wouldnt make us lose.

Yet terrible coaching would.

But with only a field goal needed to win, why was there such a concern with a big touchdown play? Had the Bears completed one all game long? The one attempt was intercepted by Josh Norman.

Exactly. This was why major beef with that soft coverage. I thought an interception by Cutler was way more likely than a TD.

I like Ron Rivera but he has got to go.

On Rivera I thought the team was prepared but I question three specific coaching decisions.The first was the decision not to attempt the field goal with a few seconds left.I know there was wind.but what did we really have to lose with the exception of having it blocked and returned?.I was also not impressed with the kickoff decisions that gave the Bears excellent field position . The most obvious was the soft defense at the end of the game.

Pretty much dead on... Rivera just doesn't have the chops to make the right calls in tight spots... he's a poor game and clock manager and (as has been the trend for the Panthers pretty much forever) plays not to lose...

We have the talent on this team that a good coaching staff could mold into a championship team. This staff ain't it.

Team: A+

Coaching: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFd245777abca64ece2d5d7ca0d19fddb6.png (And that is grading on a curve)

the staff came in with a great game plan and the players excuted it.

we took away their biggest weapon....Hester.

this game came down to a couple plays that didn't go our way.

if there is no shanked punt or a smitty slip........... we arn't even having this discussion.

And McDermott too. I wouldn't mind keeping Chud if he continues to progress with his play calling.

They all must go. This team needs an enema.

Those things don't happen if this coaching staff wasn't scared stiff. We aren't shanking punts if we weren't so afraid of Hester. Even if Smitty didn't slip, we probably weren't going to score, and the Bears would have gotten the ball back and scored. Rivera played scared, and this was evident from the beginning of the game.

The players are the only reason we had a lead. The coaches lost it.

well, if playing scared let's us whip teams like the bears on the road..........

then I'm all in for "playing scared"

ps.....the coaching staff had nothing to do with the shanked punt or smitty slipping.
