Who is possibly better than the starters for the...

Dolphins, Seahawks, Niners, Vikings, Bills, Jets, Chiefs, Raiders, Cardinals, Browns, Jaguars, Titans, and MAYBE even the Rams, Bengals, and Eagles.

part of a rebuild, imo, is having to bring in a new system for the players to learn.

i'm just not a fan of so much change in so little time. some players in house may not fit the new coaching staff's system so new ones might have to be brought in. more turnover.

if it can be avoided, it needs to be.

best thing for this team is for this system to work with this coaching staff largely intact.

I'm sure Richardson feels the same since he's on borrowed time.

thats why we'll either stay with who we have or, if this staff doesn't get things turned around, we'll go with an experienced HC rather than some OC or DC that will have to learn how to manage a team as an HC.

can't afford to let some guy learn on the job anymore. he's gonna have to hit the ground running.

one thing that is gonna have to happen is JR is going to have to open up his checkbook. the new GM staff is going to have to make cap room.

I really want to keep our current staff for one more year. Last year we saw what Chud can do, now the D is shining and the ST's, if nothing else, aren't losing us games. Chud didn't just forget how to run an offense and they all need to learn how to go for the jugular and finish out games.

I still think this team needs an attitude infusion, someone nasty on the field like we have on D with Beason, Luke, Hardy, Munneryln, Godfrey, etc. O is a collection of nice guys- I want nasty. Not dirty, but nasty.

Nasty belongs on the oline. Free agent right guard, first round lt if its a five star guy. Give gross his release. Silly has a bit of a mean streak kalil isnt going any where and bell is great for the money.

I think that Rivera can be a good HC but we need a great HC, now! Not someeone that needs to develope. It further concerns me that Rivera wasted the 1st half of the season starring from the sidelines instead of coaching.

I would like to see Rivera having a conversation with Cam on the sideline at least once. I would assume that relationship is strained to say the least.

How do you allow a 2nd year QB in his early 20's to play the game without any coaches. I would have my coaches all over game every second of the game. While the defense is on the field, Cam should be getting coached up, the fact that he is sitting by himself with that towel over his head is exactly why I think we have bad coaching

I agree he just does not seemed to be engaged especially with Cam.

So I was reading the weekly NFC south chat on ESPN. For those not familiar with it, its basicially where fans of NFCS teams ask Pat Yasinskas questions. Usually there isnt anything very intresting but this one caught my attention.

Question; Would you give Ron Rivera a zero percent chance of returning next year?

Pat Y's answer; No, I think there's a slight chance he could stay. One guy I've talked to that is interested in the GM job (but has yet to have any contact with the Panthers) said he thinks Rivera can become a good coach and he'd consider keeping him if he got the job.

Well thats rather intresting. A. Wonder who is intrested in the GM spot and B. Maybe we are all wrong about Rivera and he just needs a good solid year with a new GM thats willing to bring in new players.

Here is a link to the chat, its at the bottom. http://espn.go.com/s...h-pat-yasinskas

Speak for yourself.

PS.....I liked your post by accident while tring to qupote it.

Nope! RR seemed to think he had an unlimited amout of time to start having success until Marty was fired. His unwillingness to make adjustments until his ass was on the hot seat concerns me. If Marty were still here we would be watching the same BS saw back during the first few weeks of the season.
