If the Panthers end up a top five defense......

Agreed. Anything better than 6-10 and I say we keep Rivera and co for another year.

He's saying they fire RR and bring him back as the DC.....

Oh, never mind then. I was saying keep Rivera ass the HC if we make it to 7-9, or 8-8 (10-6?!?!?!). Anything above 6-10 is after all improvement. Yeah, RR should have had a sit down with Chud about the read option about 3 weeks sooner, but as long as our record is heading in the right direction, I think it'd be pretty hard to let Rivera and his staff go.

I'm not saying they should do that. I'm saying its not out of the realm of possibilities if he ends up with a better record than last year and the players want him. Really all depends on who we get at GM. I'm not endorsing the idea.

Sorry should of worded it differently...but he thought you meant to keep him as the HC, with that record and that's not what you were eluding too.

    • Times change and things evolve. Have you noticed that this year's draft class is the best in many years in the secondary? While the rules may be changing, have you noticed how defenses and players have changed as well? A guy like Fournette could be the thing we need to take advantage of the fact that this year and last year, CBs are being drafted once every 6 players and this year safeties are going to be drafted a ton as well. I think it was Linville and I who were thinking the same thing, that if you really want to get ahead of the current NFL, you do something no one else is building their teams to stop. I'd love to see us get into a real power running game, not a great running game because your QB gets as many yards as your lead back, but a running game that forces the D to not have extra DBs on the field causing play actions to be unstoppable. Maybe I am wrong, but it seems like NFL defenses are trending towards not being able to stop a great running game.

    • New details on Stewarts extension: http://www.espn.com/blog/carolina-panthers/post/_/id/25117/source-jonathan-stewarts-deal-worth-8-million-in-base-value "The deal, which has a base value of $8 million, included $1.1 million fully guaranteed at signing, with another $2.5 million coming Stewart’s way Tuesday in the form of a roster bonus. The team created $2.075 million in cap space for 2017 with the deal, as his cap number dropped from $8.25 million to $6.175 million... In sum, the base value of the deal is $4.25 million in 2017 and $3.75 million in 2018."
