As the Panthers steamroll the Chargers I think about Ron Rivera's record in games that count, games when you have a shot at the playoffs...
This year that record was 3-9. QB Matt Moore was 4-1 as a starter. The games meant nothing. This is the decision the owner needs to make
In terms of Ron Rivera's future with Panthers, I think today's game shows why a change is needed. This could have been happening long ago.
It baffles me that some of you guys feel like the Panthers have turned a new leaf or something. What we are watching this month is fools gold. which is completely what Rivera has demonstrated. We simply can't win when it matters. The first three months of the season tells the whole story on why Rivera shouldn't be retained. At best, Rivera team will be just mediocre just like Norv Turner team. I'm the type of guy that gives credit when credit is due and I think Rivera has done a good job with the defense. I just don't feel Rivera has showed me enough to believe that he should stay. The only way I would even consider him to stay is if we finish 7-9. Even then I would be very skeptical.
