Who Said What?

Panthers/Chargers have mirror image frustrations

30 posts in this topic

Every year the Chargers do just enough to keep people who need to be fired from being fired. That's what scares me about Rivera's late season success. That the way our team is built makes us look sexy enough to keep people who need to lose their jobs from doing so.

Too little too late, RR and Co. slogan. He's a nice guy and all but he needs to go.

Norv Turner is a coordinator, not a coach. Same argument could be said regarding Rivera.

Turner is a coach who should have been fired at least two seasons ago. Will the same be said about Rivera?

This post is on the money. 100% accurate.

Most Charger fans have wanted their GM fired for longer than Norv. At least we had an owner who realized it was time to pull the plug.

We hired a staff that doesn't know how to win big games...what did JR expect? It was obvious about halfway through last year that Rivera didn't know what he was doing.

another good point. would have to agree with this as well.

McDermott has an outstanding pedigree, but none of these guys have ever been apart of a coaching staff that has accomplished much.

Yeah, you could make a valid point that the only reason Rivera HASN'T been fired is because we don't have our GM yet.

Hopefully, and I don't know if this is going to happen or not, Mr. Richardson will keep his hands off the team and let his GM do what he thinks is best to build a winning club. If not, we could bring Vince Lombardi here to be a GM and it won't matter.

Do any of y'all think that The Big Cat has made his mind up on Rivera already? They were talking on WFNZ that JR basically told Rivera a couple weeks ago that his fate next season depends on how the finish this season.

This worries me. What if we win out? or win 3 of the last 4? Is that good enough for JR? what if the GM wants to bring in a new guy?

This is certainly going to be a very, very interesting couple of days after our season ends in a couple weeks. Maybe the most interesting/busiest the Panthers have ever had.

Also, who would we make interim? I don't believe JR has confidence in any of these staff members. Someone said that JR didn't like the Rivera choice anyway. I think he intends to be a little more hands on this time. Rivera is done unless we win our last games by forty points or even then who knows.

If its one thing I have learned about this team its don't underestimate there losing potential. They have got there asses handed to them by some pretty shitty teams this year.
