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.

LOL Dude for one the guy who doing the GM search is a long time friend of JR. I'm sure JR is going to listen his long time friend on who is best to hire. The guy has put together this current Giants team that is made up of Eli, Nicks Cruz, JPP, Tuck and so on. So if this guy tells JR that the new GM wants to get rid of Cam and draft a QB he likes. It's going to happen. JR trust this guy who is looking for a new GM. So face it Cam could be gone after this season along with other people as well. We never know what is going to happen. Plain and simple.

Whatever happens in the off-season, I'd say Chud has to be the first one fired.

How that man has a job still, I have no fuging idea.


I remember about 9 months ago when everyone on here thought Chud was the next great coaching mind.....that we should triple his salary to make sure that we kept him....that he should be HC instead of Rivera.

Oh, how fickle we ALL are as fans.

First of all if you are referring to Acorsi, he knows damn well not to just throw away a talented QB on a whim. He drafted Eli Manning like you said yourself, who at one point was pretty much a joke in the league. He never wavered and stuck with him. Seems like it paid off for him if you ask me, but hey what do I know.

So you are telling me he would be dumb enough to hire a GM who cannot be successful with our own talented young QB. Yet Richardson who has already been through health problems and publicly stated Cam was the last QB he will ever draft will just jump on board for another rebuild. Well.. I'm heading back to reality. That is laughable.

Yes because absolutely nothing has changed with Chud from last season to this season.

My answer to the OP's question--No, do not retain Ron Rivera...The new GM will probably (most certainly) pick a new HC and the new HC will chose his own staff. The question should be will the new HC retain any of our current position coaches?

For those that think it would be so shocking for rivera to be fired after this season (providing things continue on the path they are going) I have a experiment.
Go to your job tomorow morning and begin failing as badly as rivera has been, see if it takes longer than a year for your boss to fire you.

This team lacks something..... it is not talent.....

This team is weak in preparation, game plan, conditioning, and in confidence. These qualities are instilled by the coaching staff. This coaching staff has let the team down.

It is obvious if you watch the Panthers over the last 2 years. We have tons of talent! We have numerous individuals that should be in the pro-bowl every year. What we don't have is preparation and execution. That is on Rivera. I hope he finds a good D-coordinator job somewhere next year where he belongs. He is not head coaching material.

Rivera, for the better part of 2 seasons, has not shown one iota of good decision making when games are close

as it stands, worst winning percentage out of any Panthers coach, including Seifert.

Nobody was really clamoring to keep him around after 01, were they?

I agree... the sad thing is JR will NEVER hire a GM or HC that dosent fear him and know their place in the pecking order. Ive never seen a yes-man successfully lead men and command their respect. Our players are not well prepared to play... This combined with poor in-game decision making and the inability to make adjustments during the game is has killed us.

The bottom line is 1-11. I appreciate the fact that you made well thought out arguments and support for them and strongly stand by your view, but I just can't agree. I can make a great argument that we're way better than 2-8. That we're just as good as 6-5 teams in the league right now, easily. We have the talent and that may be all well and true. But we're 2-8... doesn't matter how good you argue or what points you provide, the end result is all that matters. We may very well be just as good and talented as 6-5 teams, but we don't have the record to show for it so the argument is void before it begins. 1-11 in games decided by 7 points or less. That's all I need to know. That all falls on the coaching. You honestly think Rivera isn't the problem? Imagine if a Harbaugh or BB was coaching this team. We would probably be a #1 seed right now.
