Should we keep Rivera for another Season?

Recommended Posts

So how would Rivera be able to turn us into a playoff team, even if we manage to get these players (O-line, WR, etc.) that we are missing?

This time around, will the Panthers pay the money required to bring in quality coaching talent?

If not, may as well keep Stone face.

It's pointless if they're going to go bargain basement shopping again.

here's the thing I agree, but argue why you think he should go or stay?

Well by last years end I would've said we found our coach. But at this point we have 18 losses and 8 wins under Rivera. 14 of those losses are by 7 points or less. It seems that this team is like a balloon filled to to point of bursting (potential), but the coach doesn't have the capasity to push it to the bursting point. IMO RR just doesn't have the ability to get the best from all his players and for that reason, he must go.

The only thing I like about Rivera is that he replaces players that don't perform. I hope the next coach does that also.

not only should we not keep rivera another season he should be fired effective 3 weeks ago.

His game management is terrible. The fact that he allowed chud to wait until the season was effectively scuttled to make even the most minor adjustments to the offense is offensive.The fact that he called a timeout that allowed another team to put points on the board that otherwise would not have been is unforgivable. The fact that he can't seem to shoulder any blame for the seasons issues to this point is poor leadership.

Its mind boggling to me that a team can beat us by running the same 6 times in a row, but we never repeat play calling that is successful. This coaching staff constantly out thinks itself. They seem to think they can gimmick themselves into a good team.

If John fox played not to lose Rivera is playing not to win. and you can quote me on that.

I think not. Keeping anything around from this season is probably a bad decision. The cancer of losing needs to be cut from charlotte and in this case taking the leg to make sure you get the bad toe is acceptable.

I would keep Luke, Greg, Cam, Norman, CJ, and Smitty.

Everyone else down to the concessions staff are expendable IMO. F-ck 'em all.

people believe that it won't happen, just like people believe there's no way in hell rivera stays another season.

i believe that all bets are off with a new gm.

nothing would surprise me.

Pretty sure one of the first questions in the gm interviews will be regarding our offense, and if Cam isn't in that plan I doubt they will even proceed. Richardson won't hear that noise.

Where are we going to find the cap room to sign a decent QB anyhow?

Unless you think Derek Anderson is the answer and if so well I am concerned for you.

It was pretty dumb of JR to fire all the coaching staff but keep on a GM that was a huge part of our downfall and now we are living with that GM's decisions on an incompetent coaching staff

I know its two different sports but all you have to do is look at the Charlotte Bobcats to know coaching plays a HUGE role in turning a team around. Mike Dunlap has a team of just two star potential players in Kidd-Gilchrist and Walker, the rest of the guys would be lucky to be back ups on better teams. Bobcats are 5-0 in games decided by 4 points or less. Polar opposite of the Panthers.. Why? Coaching!

If it were up to me I would have Rivera here in August 2013. I just like the 3 year chance for any coach.

If he got fired tomorrow I would be OK with it
