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.
