The truth about Ron Rivera

32 posts in this topic

Posted

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.

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....

I was just thinking

There is a reason Rivera couldn't land a HC job, even though he is one of the best DCs in the league

On an unrelated note, there is a reason Harbaugh wanted nothing to do with us

I agree with Darin Gantt. Gantt said on Twitter last night that you really can't continue to put Rivera out there with a straight face. It's becoming ridiculous.

I don't know if it would help any, but I don't think he needs to be here right now.

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.

Dude really didn't have a chance but i'm not liking what im seeing... i was happy with the hire originally...but, you cant give his azz a volkswagon and tell him to go out an win the Daytona 500...

My biggest problem with Rivera is that he lied to us from day one. In his first press conference he spoke about being aggressive and attacking.

Fast Forward to now and you see there has been nothing Aggresive about the Carolina Panthers. Your a 2-7 football team your job security has vanished and you need 1 yard to win the game at home. You send your punt team on the field

Which is the opposite of who he said he was when he took the job.

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.

Well said.

However, you failed to realize that most posters on this board are either 12 yo or have the mental capacity of a 12 yo.

Calling people douchbags and pos's is all they can muster.

The only reason JR should logically fire Ruvera this point is if he thought there was a legit HC candidate on the staff....wanting to evaluate them.

Fact is that neither Chud nor McDermott nor Dhula are legit candidates. Therefore, let Ztuvera ride out the season and then send him packing us the intelligent and logical thing to do at this point.
