I've stated my opinion on this topic to the point of not wanting to again....if that makes sense. If we finish 7-9 and continue to show steady growth and improvement, not just from a performance standpoint, but from a coaching standpoint - ie not wasting fuging timeouts, because you can't get a goddamn play call in, like four times a game. Then I won't be necessarily upset if he's retained.

Does that mean that I want him to be kept? Not really, I think we can do better, but if we finish strong, like I said, I wouldn't be overly upset at the decision. It would be the new GM's first major decision and, if we are going to give him a chance, we will have to have faith in that initial decision.

Rivera should stay. IMO the record is meaningless...........we're rebuilding.

or recovering from 2010.

lets judge him on his next two years.

In all honesty- this last win was the only real notable one of his career- sorry but he just isn't cut out to be a head coach at the moment. Maybe next time he gets his shot (if he does) he will be better prepared

I firmly believe a coaching change this offseason would be warranted if the players gave up and this team implodes through the end of the year. I'm surprised they haven't shown any signs of giving up. Atlanta may have been a soft 11-1 team, but what I saw yesterday from a skeleton crew on D was pretty damn impressive. Rivera is slowly becoming someone who could lead this team. I think he's had a tough start, but not been given the time to settle in. I'd really hate to see a whole new staff next year. That will put us back for at least an entire additional year, if not two. Make the wrong decision on a new HC? You'll be staring at Cam's contract renewal with virtually no positive traction under his feet.

The guy has won 1 game against a good team...It took him over 20 games to do it. You really want him to continue to coach this team? He is terrible and has no clue what is going on.

The same guy who called a timeout to let the Saints kick a field goal with the clock running and 5 seconds left until half time? NO

I thought MAYBE if he could get the team to .500, it should be discussed. But the team has lost too many games they should have won. He's gone. He might even find success elsewhere as a coordinator, but it won't be in Carolina.

If he stays I won't scream bloody murder, but I don't want him back. His style is a mismatch with what I want to see from this team as a fan.

His team has gone 2-2 while his QB has protected the ball and made tons of plays.

I can't credit him for Cam's recent play. The game management is still terrible, Cam's just offsetting it. They use more idiot TOs than anyone. Just stupid mistakes. When you play close games, having all your TOs is an advantage. It's strategic. Good teams don't blow TOs often.

As for beating an 11-1 team, well Atlanta was on the field for what, 7 minutes in the first half? More so because of the offense staying on the field. I'm not bashing the defense, but was anyone extremely confident before the TD interception? They'd let up two scores and were being attacked again. Nice revenge that they held on, I'll give them that.

These "Rivera needs another year" threads only come after wins.
