Thoughts on Tom Clements?


Tom Clements looks awesome. He'd probably be my first pick out of anyone that hasn't been a head coach before. But after going through what we've gone through with Rivera, I'd prefer to see someone who's been a head coach at some level.

But, out of everyone, David Shaw is honestly my #1 favorite right now.

HC - Mike McCoy
OC - Norv Turner
DC - Rex Ryan

I'm not sure what to make of Mike McCoy but all the NFL insiders have been pumping him up for bigger and better jobs since he was the QB coach here in Carolina.

Norv Turner was a bad head coach but is a great offensive mind.

Yes, Rex Ryan has always ran a 3-4 defense. But Rivera had always ran a 4-3 before going to San Deigo where he adapted his philosophy to match the 3-4 personnel that was already in place. Who's to say Rex can't do the same?

3-4 guys are not gonna want to play a 4-3. the 3-4 is more versatile and you are able to disguise coverages and bring heat better.

Ryan would switch us atleast by season 2 if not season 1 with a few FA signings and some draft picks.

Mike Mocoy Broncos OC

Bruce Arians Colts OC

Kevin Gilbright Giants OC



Add Kyle Shanahan from DC and maybe Perry Fewel from the Giants too and this is what I'd like.

No to Perry Fewel. He's interviewed for as many HC positions as Ron Rivera. I do not want to go that road again.

A lot of names. Some thoughts.

Based on Jerry's executive hiring decisions, why should we have any faith in anyone he directly hires? And if we do get a good coach, why should we believe that Jerry will treat that person well? Ditto with a general manager.

I have ZERO faith in Jerry's ability to make the two most important decisions: the hiring of a head coach and the hiring of a general manager.

The best coaches gravitate toward the best owners and organizations. They pick and choose the destination that will work for them; it's just like any other business: the top candidates are not interested in going to a bad company.

Word gets around among coaches about the 'corporate culture' and I believe that Jerry's reputation among coaches is poor. PLUS...Jerry has a reputation for being cheap when it comes to coaches. Word also gets around among the agents representing coaches.

Organizations with major, major problems call in a consultant. It would shock me if Jerry actually does what Ernie tells him.

So we can speculate about coaches but with the organization in disarray and the presence of several genuine passengers on the roster PLUS salary cap problems, the top candidates will steer well clear of Charlotte. Sad but true but I hope I'm proven wrong.

A new coach will arrive. He will say all the right things. Jerry will send PSL owners a letter at the end of the season telling us he's proud of us and that things will be better but there's no reason for optimism while Jerry is the owner.

Rooney plays a large part in that.

Jason La Canfora disagrees with you, so, thanks for knowing more than a guy that covers football for a living!

Thanks for being a douche!



I want a coach that will run a PRO offense with Cam Newton. Period. If you want to add some wriggles fine. But for the love of God, he can run a Pro offense.

I actually like the Brett Bilema idea someone threw out in another thread. He's a coach who has made living winning 10+ games a year and isn't hauling in the top 5 class every year just banking on talent. Solid coach that I think could do the job here.

Who do I want ?

Does it really fuging matter right now ?


We are fuged in the cap.
Our OC is trying to get out QB murdered.
Our Head coach doesn't know what day it is.
Our DC is a fuging Ginger .
Our previous GM resigned a bunch of players comfortable with losing.
Our locker room culture is that of the bad news bears.
Our owner is so out of touch he thinks its great he has minorities playing no doubt.
and our fan base is so fuging dipshitted that we are talking about McCoy, Scott Leinahand, and Gene ABOUTTOBEfugINGFIREDFROMAUBURN Chizic as Head Coaching prospects.

So no, I don't think I will join in this hope and dreams and forum circle jerk of who will come win us a SuperBowl in their first season.

You guys whine and fuging cry when I don't insta ban the smartasses on this board when they tell you how fuging stupid you sounding.
Then people make posts like I see after a loss.
The only hope for many of you is that someone will use the English language to bash you in the fuging skull in literary fashion until you either stop posting and hurting my eyes OR educate yourselves so you don't sound like a fuging 13 year oldtrying to talk to grown ups about your adult experiences.


.
Dont be afraid, if you want Rivera to stay just tell us.

.
Or tell us dipshitted fan base who is going to save the Panthers.

Thoughts on Tom Clements?


Limited experience as an OC. Has been a QB coach pretty much his entire career. I know Reid went from QB Coach to head coach, but I'm not a big fan of 'skipping a grade'. And I have to imagine it'd be an even harder sell to Richardson.

I wouldn't scream, but not my first choice.
