8-8 is pretty impressive given his qb situation last year.

if we're strictly talking records, then firing the staff seems more obvious. However, we have seen considerable growth in the defense and in Cam. As long as we finish out playing like this, I'd like to see what he can do in a 3rd year. I'll bet we make the playoffs and everyone will start talking about how this year was the big turnaround.

We never saw the same kind of growth/development with Fox's teams. It's great to see our team get better and the young players develop into studs.

At the end of the day it's all up to the New GM to keep Rivera or not.

I don't see why people hate Chud so much. I really don't get it. I actually like what he's been doing with this offense lately

And that's the whole problem.

they did give up on the read option, though, and our offense is back to what it was last year. That's great to see. A full season of this offense, without trying to get cute, and our team is bad ass. I'd love to see that next season.

They tried something that didn't work, so they canned it and went back to what did.

Adjustments. Works for me.

For my part, I think overall Chudzinski is a better play designer than play caller. But again, lately, he's doing okay at both.

I may be one of the few, but I agree with Scot on this one.

I sense a lot of people want to win right away, well there is more of a chance of that happening with a returning Rivera than it would with an entirely new staff, system, etc...

This very likely could be a three year process where Rivera and the Panthers finally get it right in the third year.

However, if the Panthers new GM decides to hire a completely new coaching staff that runs an entirely new system (pretty much everyone except Chip Kelly, Chip's offense is somewhat similar to our current one), then we are in another rebuilding mode, a.k.a another two more seasons before we are going to be a playoff team.

Give Rivera one more go at if the season starts off poorly (0-3, 0-4 etc...) just can him early.
