falcons loss- cam fumbles on 3rd n 2 n Naka gives up bomb. Bears loss- Steve falls in route resulting in a pick 6. I actually forgot which game Cam missed hartstock of barnidge on 4th and goal.... Point is we just didnt execute well enough in some games. Yes playcalling has been bad but it has certainly gotten better over the last 3 weeks

Who's the one who started Nakamura? Who called the passing play that lead to Steve falling and the ball being picked? (All we needed to do was run the clock out in the Bears game) Besides in those two games, we had a substantial lead and lost it. It's one thing for that to happen once or twice in a year, but to happen 6+ games?

So you are willing to forget all that, if we beat sorry teams like the Chargers, Raiders, and Saints? If we win at all, it's because of the guys on this team, and zero credit toward coaching. We have no business being out of the playoffs this year. The only thing I will credit the coaches on, is this miserable season.

My god yall. We won a game and all is right with the world again. Stop it..a win against ATL is always welcomed, but this season was a failure due to the inept coaching and a meaningless win here or there wont change that.

And lets not also forget Atlanta was coming back in the second half. If they would have gotten that two point conversion, I'm sure Rivera would have gone into his little corner to hide.

Good point...Defense was in choke mode in the second half :-)

We're 4-9. I like 50-50 chances of getting a great coach this time around. It's like the coin tosses actually. Because we have had terrible coaches, the odds are actually stacked in our favor statistically speaking. We're bound to strike a good coach soon, hopefully this offseason will be our year.

If Rivera gets the team to 7-9, he needs another year. End of discussion.

He didn't just make mistakes in the first part of the year and for most of the season, he willingly didn't do anything about it until Hurney got fired. Some of the moves he made were just plain ridiculous. You got two good running backs, and they barely touch the ball. You start Nakamura when he didn't deserve it. (Not that Sherrod showed great improvement in the pre-season, but he did play a little better than Haruki) He started Kuechly on the outside and only had him in the game for 20% or less on defense. Then he benched our best return man for most of the season. All these things contributed to our terrible record, not because we have a bad team.

Plus, they let Cam hang out to dry for most of the season, and failed to develop him fully as a throwing QB. (They encouraged him to use his athletics, because that was a main part of our offense. The one man show they wanted to implement.) They didn't let him audible. So I can deal with a young coach learning how to do things. What I refuse to put up with is a coach making dumb decisions, to the point of sabotaging.

The idea that a professional coach in his first stint would purposely sabotage the team whose record determines whether he goes or stays after all it took for him to get his first coaching job is beyond ridiculous. So lets just stop that whole garbage, you are beginning to sound like a conspiracy theorist. You assume that he didn't do anything until Hurney was gone as if that might be under his control. Did you consider that maybe Richardson finally gave him the ability to make his own fate by getting rid of Hurney? It makes just as much sense.

Secondly most of your premises are not rooted in any kind of fact. Did Rivera call any plays or does he even know enough to call the plays?? So who let Cam hang out to dry? Secondly, word in the organization was that Newton couldn't read defenses so they couldn't give him all the plays and variations until he was ready which appears to be happening now. He was not audiblizing (sp) because they didn't think he could do it very well. Lately he has gotten much better.

Martin was awful last year and everyone felt Nakamura was an upgrade. It wasn't until the Atlanta game and afterwards that we saw how bad he was in coverage and Martin hasn't been much better.

Secondly, Kuechly wasn't in all the time because they had to know that he knew where to be on all the plays and felt Beason was better early. As Kuechly grew and learned in practice, his role on the field expanded especially when Beason went down.

Adams didn't play in a game until he showed he wasn't going to fumble in practice, which he continued to do, well after the bye. Has he fumbled in a game since he got back in? Then maybe their formula worked.

Again we can't go back and forth all day with your loose speculations and my explanations about why they did what they did. In the end I am not going to change your mind so I won't waste any more time in that arena. But I don't agree at all with your baseless speculations and doubt most knowledgeable Panther fans will either. To assume that a coach would purposely keep star players out of the lineup or handicap players on purpose to somehow showcase a "one man show" is paranoid at best and delusional at worse.

New GM = New coach

Mostly, but not always.

GMs have been known to give coaches an 'audition' season.

Beating the falcunts was nice but let's not forget we made the Chiefs look like a playoff team.

No the NFL/officials made the Chiefs look like a playoff team. Don't be fooled.
