How can you not love Ron Rivera, as a person? Not so much as a head coach, but a really good guy.

Hope he lands on his feet next season

I think Ron stays another year if they get the next 2 out of 3... Another off season is crucial for Cam's development and changing everything now probably wouldn't help much.

Well, if you subscribe to this notion, it's his first "true" win. He beat a top level team without a scrub QB and/or coach. All the while by not sabotaging our double digit lead.

Is it enough to save his job? Doubt it. Probably has to win out, including against the Saints in NOLA.

Meh, that Texans team won a playing game.....something this Falcon team won't. They were a better team, Atl just had a better QB.

If Carolina wouldve lost this one, Rivera's presser comments would already be up on the Observer. So would the team "grades". Why does the local media love it so much when the Panthers lose?

No issues with that here. That Texans win was big, especially as they still went somewhat deep into the playoffs with their "scrub" QB, Yates.

I just know that some people around here like to pin that ish on Rivera when he can't pull it out against top level teams with their franchise QB and coach.

You don't count the loss to KC as an embarassing meltdown?

i do, but the win today was a convincing one. convincing enough to give rivera another year.

in JR's eyes atleast.

I have put the blame for our struggles this season on coaching. And I am giving coaching credit for today's great victory. This is the best win we have had in 3-4 years, and against an 11-1 division rival. We pretty much dominated today. Props to both our coaches and players. Our players could have packed it in like the Bucs did last year, but they have not given up on our coaching staff apparently.

If our players have not given up on our coaching staff and we win out, then I am not going to give up on them either.

I don't give a damn what his emotions are. Bellicheck is as robotic as they come and he's arguably the greatest football coach of all time. My problem with Rivera simply boils down to his game decisions regarding personnel, scheme, playcalling and clock management. I actually think he's a good talent evaluator and knows how to get acceptable production and play out of complete scrubs.
