Ron Rivera Should be Given a 3rd Year

I know a lot of you like to do the popular thing and hop on the "fire Rivera" bandwagon but I have never heard of a coach being fired after just two seasons. To me, that is crazy. Every coach deserves at least three seasons in my opinion. We started out slow this season. I think that had more to do with assistant coaches trying to think to much and asking players to do things that are way too complicated or they were too obvious for opposing teams. We are finally clicking on offense now that the coaches figured out how to get the most out of our players. Our defense was pretty bad until Rivera took over primary control over it and put players like Hardy's butts on the line if they didn't step up their play. They clearly have responded. We have third stringers that are prepared and ready to be thrown into action at any given time and that says a lot about the coaching. We have to remember this is Rivera's first HC gig and it has taken him a while to figure that out. I think we coaches have finally figured out how to get the best of of this team and I would love to see that roll over into next season. We are right on the cusp of being a great team and hiring a new staff now could just set us back again. They will get rid of players and bring in new players. Also try to install a whole new system. Everyone is just getting comfortable with the system we got and it is really looking good on the field. It would be ridiculous.

Im suprised how so many of you are set in stone about Rivera not returning. Lets look at the facts. If we win out A. Its a one game improvement from last year. Just think. 2010; 2-14, 2011; 6-10 and 2012; 7-9. Why on earth would you chance screwing that up?

B.if we win out that means we would be 3-3 in our division versus 2-4 last season. Thats also a huge improvement. Fans on here act as though we are a playoff contender every year and Rivera has been with us for 10-15 years and hasnt won a SB yet. The fact is he has been here 2 years, his first year was a lockout year with a rookie QB. Also note that Rivera had a big role in drafting 2 home run players in Cam and Luke Kuechly. He is 2/2 in drafting first round studs.

C. The players are clearly playing hard for him and want him to stay and D. Cam is playing some of the best football of his young career, do you really want to risk disrupting that now? I have a strong feeling if we fire Rivera, come mid season we will all be saying how stupid we feel about letting him go.
