You seem to be the only one thinking that.
I didn't realize that it was by popular opinion and not facts?
A lot of people don't want to give Rivera any credit because they are butt hurt over how the season has gone on, yourself included.
and I understand I've been there too.
I've just seen enough bad seasons that it doesn't bother me anymore, and you can say what you will about that but I don't get caught in the emotion of it anymore and I just take things for what they are, no more or less.
it's like the 1-12 argument.
reality is the argument is it's crap, but the wins and losses are fact. the biggest issues with this team has been know since week 1, O-line and DB's (mostly the DB's)and they are still the issue, when you go by the book situational play calling for both teams at the end of the game there is your answer.
now has Coaching been perfect? nope, but they haven't been horrible either.
I think overall the Coaches have done a Decent Job.
With all this said I'd be in Favor of replacing Rivera if a clear cut better option like Andy Reid is available and willing to come to Charlotte. but honesty if we are going to just get someone new and Unproven as a head coach in the NFL again I'd just rather give Rivera another year to work things out, because honestly outside of Reid there really isn't anyone that I find even remotely exciting.
