The only reason Rivera still has a job is because we don't have anyone to take over for the rest of the season.

Ask yourself if you were Mr. Richardson would you let anyone else on this coaching staff take over your team?

JR knows this so he's going to wait until the end of the season, hire a new gm and let him do away with Rivera.

It's true. As fans, our frustrations are getting the best of our emotions. RR's stupid stoic face has become the symbol we relate to the poo product on the field. Just like Foxy chewing gum and clapping after Jake threw a fifth interception, it's just our frustration spilling out as group mentality hatred. That being said, FIRE THAT STOIC POS!!!

Thats my feeling on it. Why bring in an interim coach? The Panthers luck would probably turn around win 4 or 5 in a row and then we would be stuck with this person next year.

I agree that he should be fired. We just don't have anyone on the staff qualified to take over. That's why the saints looked so bad at the start of the season

I wanted Rivera before Fox was even gone.

Now it's clear that he just won't be a great head coach, without some major changes in himself. The Panthers can afford to wait that long.

Richardson doesn't like to fire a head coach mid season, which i normally agree with.
It wouldn't upset me to see him fired though.

You guys calling Rivera a "POS" and similar names need to get a life. I don't like the team's performance any more than the rest of you, and I agree that Ron should be fired at the end of the season absent some sort of miraculous turnaround. But Ron is a gentleman, has treated everyone in the organization--and I mean EVERYONE, top to bottom--with decency and respect, and has done nothing to bring shame on himself or the team. He may or may not be NFL head coach material--sometimes a different situation can be a new lease on life. But no one can deny that he's been a successful NFL coach, and that he's a good man who works his butt off and sincerely cares about his players. That won't be enough to save his job, but it ought to be enough to persuade you to take a respectful tone and understand that failure in business does not equate to moral or ethical lapse.

Listen here...don't tell me what to do...

I want a winner. We will respect someone who delivers a good product on the field. Until then...I will continue to use my current tone....who are you?

I agree with your overall statement about him being a good person, but he hasn't onced stood in front of the microphone and said hey I let this team down this loss is on me. He continuously deflects blame by screaming about execution. He needs to accept the blame the way our QB stood up and accepted blame even though we know he wasnt to blame

I believe that chud would be just fine for the rest of the season. At this point last season many thought he was the it coach and wouldnt be back this season . So why not find out if he is who we thought he was or has he truely been exsposed.

I couldn't agree more. People are getting so emotional about yesterday's loss that they can't see the big picture. This season is lost, putting an interim coach from this staff in place will do nothing for us. The best scenario is the same as the worst case scenario - which is that they start winning and potentially get Jerry to go cheap and back the interim coach as the new head coach next season. Half-ass rebuilding is part of the reason that we are where we are at this point (not getting rid of Hurney at the same time as Fox).

Ron Rivera?

He was turned down 9 times.............that's 9 seperate NFL teams for a head coaching position.............before they hired him here.

What does that tell you?????

This will be his last HC job..........he will spend the rest of his career in the NFL as a defensive coordinator for another team as bad as this one is now............

That is the truth....
