I want to see the sentiment on this one. Of course everyone know my answer is a resounding no.

no, unless the new GM decides he's exactly who he wants to lead the team (and that the problems he faced were primarily due to horrific roster-building by hurney's mismanagement.)

It was reported recently that many GM prospects think highly of Rivera and mentioned he needs "the right people around him"

I was the first person on here to make the suggestion that he may not be gone, I stated then and I'll say it again if you look at how the Panthers have been loosing games and what our personnel issues are. based on the by the book play calling of situation it's easy too see the Panthers biggest issue this season has been the players not the coaching.

Rivera has to work with what he's given. I think if he goes 7-9 it should be good enough to get at least 1 more season

not as simple as that.

it depends on how they win. what the team is doing. if they've bought in. if the coaching staff is making much better game time decisions. is his staff making better decisions. are the players making less mistakes.

too many things to factor into just the record.

if those things are all positive then he probably should get more consideration from the incoming GM.

not sure any of it matters, though. new GM will probably want to bring in his own HC. unless he and his staff and the team has really turned the corner and he pretty much nails it the rest of the season, his overall job here isn't going to be respectable enough to keep around.

i will say, though, that it's in the best interest of the team that they have some stability at HC. it's not good for the team to be going through another shake up so soon after the last one. rivera not working out isn't the best thing for the panthers.

not buying that at all.

too many questionable calls.

the problem has been the players AND the coaching staff, but even then it falls squarely on the coaching staff for not having the team/players prepared, for personnel decisions, and for trying to "protect" a short lead and give the other team too much room to make a comeback.

he has struggled with game management. i'm not sure how that isn't clear to anyone.

who would that be? the "right" people?

kind of like fox has the "right" people around him and all he has to do is show up, clap his hands, chew his bubble gum, and watch his team win?

sorry...just kind of funny to me.

I look at the QB position. This year, I didn't like what Rivera was doing with Cam. As a result, people willingly forgot what Cam did in his rookie year, and said he couldn't quarterback in this league. Another thing I didn't like was Cam not necessarily being vocal about wanting to improve in dissecting defenses with his arm. I want a coach who will get that out of Cam, because that is what we need. Cam has all the tools to be able to dissect defenses. It would be a crying shame if that skill isn't developed. I see Rivera holding this team back.

No.

That would prove back to back seasons that it takes him two many weeks to master his game plan.

He fails to prepare his team when it matters most.

Ron belongs at the University of California Berkely coaching smart young men his ways.

i am torn in this scenario. the team has clearly not given up and playing 100% still right now. that has to count for something. he has to prove to the new GM though that he has learned from his mistakes and will be buying into what the new GM has to sell.
