Do we keep McDermott...

The defense has improved a great deal this year despite key injuries.

Over the past 5 weeks they are a top 10 defense.

Do we want to completely break up that scheme and unit and risk having an awful defense again?

If we keep McDermott would that help keep some continuity on the defense?

Same thing said about chud at the end of last season. New coach will probably bring in his guys.

Why do we blow up a defense that has shown constant improvement since its inception even with key injuries?

Id rather keep RR - I think hes the brain behind this D

Seriously - our D sucked last year with R s hands off approach - how good was mcderp in philly?

He has the losing stench.

That stench must be exterminated throughout the franchise.

If a new GM hies a new coach there is no way they keep an old coordinator around. Especially one who's not been considered good

i'm torn between keeping him around and continuing the rapport he's developed with his defense vs. flushing the entire regime out and starting over. rivera and chud are clearly poison.

how much of the defense is actually run by mcdermott anyway? it seems like it was sort of implied that rivera took some control over it around the time we saw a sizable improvement. either way as touched on previously i think it's pretty much moot as a new GM is going to insist on his own guys.

How many games has our defense won for us? Who are the stars on this D?

Improvement from last year isnt saying much. We went from being doormats to solid occassionaly now we're the 85 bears?

They are playing like a top 10 defense currently.

Considering how long they have been on the field this year, one could argue they are the reason the Panthers have been in any games at all. Hell, the offense and special teams allowed nearly as many points as they did yesterday.

Why do you have it in for the defense? Aren't you happy they look like a legit NFL unit, unlike the offense?

Imposible to answer as we do not know how much of the improvment is RR.

Based only on how the defense is playing I say he is a keeper.
