So let me see.... the Panthers have wins against 3 average teams, maybe we beat the Chiefs and Ron keeps his job?????

i think if he gets his record to at least 6 wins this year it becomes a scarce possibility. if he increases his record from last year and gets 7 or 8 wins, it's reasonable to think he'd be in consideration.

even at that, though, it would depend on the quality of those wins and if things were clicking really well the rest of the season.

i don't see that, though, and i just don't know that even then a new GM would want to retain him.

it would have to be some miraculous transformation the rest of the season.

I'm all for replacing Matsko. Juan Castillo is available, and Howard Mudd probably will be too.

As to Turner, he worked pretty well under Mike Singletary.

Singletary may have been a crappy head coach in SF, but he certainly would never be accused of being soft. I think Ron is soft. I don't think he has been tough enough with his coaches or with his players. I don't think he demands excellence, he just hopes for it.

I view Turner in much the same way. For that reason, it just doesn't seem like a good fit to me. Put Turner under someone like Mike Tomlin or Coughlin or either Harbaugh or even Pete Carrol and he'll shine again. Put him together with Rivera, and watch them stumble and bumble their way to 7 and 9 year after year.

I don't think he will be back. The late game collapses, time management and the special teams debacles will be his undoing.

While I'm glad our young players showed their stuff last night, I was honestly hoping we would lose the game. Two reasons. One, we need that first overall pick to trade away. There's no question that will help this franchise more so than just one guy in the first round. Two, Rivera needs to get up out of here. If this guy stay around for one more year, you can kiss Cam's career in Carolina goodbye.
