Seriously.. Does anyone think Rivera is just cursed?

17 posts in this topic

I remember a while back hearing that when Rivera was in San Diego they always suffered from injuries on the D, in particular the LB corps. But then look at all that has happened under him. We are 0-12 at coin tosses this year. We blew a 8 pt lead against the Bucs with 58 seconds left, how is that even possible? Injuries upon injuries, 1-11 in games decided by a TD or less. The cutting Kasay, the huge contract to Mare only to cut him months later. The Medlock debacle, the Nortman being the worst punter in the league, we replace Medlock for shanking just 2 LONG FGs, we replace him with a guy that missed a PAT.

I really think for some reason Ron Rivera is just cursed and brings nothing but bad luck. Why? Beats me. Maybe he tortured animals as a kid, maybe hes a druglord on the side, maybe he cheats on his wife with hookers. Who knows, but what I do know is despite what other terrible teams go through, I higly doubt they have gone through a debacle quite like this.

he's cursed in the same way i'd be cursed if i went in to work tomorrow, busted in to the server room, and then grabbed our exchange server and threw it down the stairwell and got fired.

which is to say, not really and a lot of it is self inflicted.

He cursed Merriman. Now he cursed Beason, but uncursed TD. Get him outta here before Kuechly goes down.

Yes I'm sure that's it. He's cursed.

Excellent analysis.

    • Steve Beuerlein's pointing about not holding on to the ball so long was interesting to me. Some of you who remember when Beuerlein was here will remember that he took a straight beating in '99 and '00 and he also had a tendency to hold onto the ball for too long. It might be smart for Cam to listen to someone who had 21 surgeries from football injuries because of this. I love me some Cam and I want to see him as the starting QB for the Panthers for a long time to come.
    • As an LSU fan, I've seen nearly all of Fournette's games and he is the real deal. He was the best running back on the team. It does not take a genius to run the read option running attack and most of the work is on the Qb. I wouldn't mind either but Fournette should be taken if he's available.      My pipedream is for us to trade next year's 1st and both 2's for us to get a Fournette and Howard combo. I think it would be worth it.
    • I'm surprised that people actually buy into this idea that our offense is going to look drastically different. I'd be shocked if it does. I hope I'm wrong, but a leopard doesn't change it's spots. If Shula had the ability to adapt he would've already done it. He is who he is and this offense is what it is. If you want real changes you make a change at OC. We didn't and we'll see an offense that looks far more familiar than different next season.
