The odds that a new GM keeps the incumbent head coach is about 2%. If the new GM ends up keeping Rivera it's because he believes that the problems were something else, which would likely mean that there has been other stuff going on behind the scenes that we don't know about.

If Rivera stays you can pretty much bet on a coaching overhaul in every other aspect - Chud gone, McDermot gone, etc.

But, like I said, the odds are VERY slight that he's retained.

Regardless of what happens to Rivera, I have no interest in Gruden.

And there's no evidence that Gruden wants the Panthers' job. The Eagles, maybe.

Also keep in mind Rivera interviewed 9 previous times for a HC job the years when some of the teams one of our potential GMs work for were looking for a HC minus the Giants. There's a good chance we get a guy who knew before this season started Rivera isn't HC material.

Rivera is a great coach. We have been in every game but 1 this year. I want to see him here next year. Improve our o-line in the offseason, get a couple of good DB's and a WR and we are in the playoffs.

The biggest fear in my life is giving sugary treats to a horse named Buttercup, who not only turns out to be a police horse but has diabeetus & it dies & I wind up in jail while my pothead friends try to sell weed to get me out while I live in fear of getting the sensation of running backwards & naked through a cornfield....

What?...

hahaha funniest thing I've heard in a long time. I didn't know standing on the sidelines looking like you had a stick up your ass makes you a great coach.

As bad as we are, the Eagles are HORRID.

his game management has singlehandedly cost us what would have been winning points many, many times. he was a very good, perhaps even borderline great DC, but i don't think he has the mind for the big picture kind of decisions a head coach needs to be able to make instinctively.

Really, barely beating a bad team like the Eagles and people think we can possibly win 4 or 5 outta 6? This is certainly our soft part of the schedule but new GM's usually mean new HC's.

It isn't going to happen but if it did I will be happy for our team, players, and coaches for being able to hang in there through the tough times and stay focused. I will never hope for the Panthers to lose. If I did that I wouldn't even watch the games.

We wouldn't be having this discussing if Cam didnt fumble the first down in ATL or if Cam had made that pass on 4th and 1 against the Seahawks.

Rivera has learned a ton this year. I truly believe he is worth 1 more year.

I hate how people on here act like they know what goes on off of the field. Do you think that if Rivera was running around, screaming at his players, that THAT would make him a great coach?

we also wouldn't be having this discussion if rivera had left the offense on the field and asked cam, tolbert, stewart, or whoever to gain a single yard and ice it against the falcons. instead, he punted and we lost.

he had a chance to put up the biggest win for this team since 2009 and he blew it. of course cam shouldn't have fumbled but he also didn't willingly give the ball back to matt ryan, a guy who does almost nothing but lead clutch drives in the regular season. he's either complicit with or responsible for the terrible games chud has been calling on offense as well. there are other examples but ultimately the buck stops with him.

just watch any game where the panthers have the ball right before the half. terrible clock management, awful playcalling, and a preference for giving up instead of fighting for points.

no more "learning on the job". we've wasted two seasons of development for the young players on this team and also burned steve smith's candle down even further. bring in someone who can win on day one and begin the arduous, painful process of developing a winning culture in this franchise.
