Rivera fate rests with JR?

27 posts in this topic

I would think the owner would have a lot of say in the HC being fired or not, with or without a GM

I'm so torn as to whether he should go or not

Not really, all it means is JR will tell the prospective GM the first thing he needs to do is bring along a head coach, because the previous will be gone by the time he gets here.

I've said this before: new GM != new coaching staffs. The Giants and Eagles both changes GMs without changing coaches.

Also the Bears hired a new GM (Phil Emery) last offseason, but retained Lovie Smith (although given a second consecutive season-ending slide, Lovie might be canned after this year).

We still don't know who the new GM will be so there's no guarantees on how he will determine Rivera's fate, especially if he wins out the rest of the season.

Wasn't it JR that said he needed to see an upward trend from Rivera? Sounds like the HC evaluation will be up to him in the end all.

I still think Rivera is done. Too many mistakes he has made. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if we gave him one more shot. The guy has had some terrible luck these first two seasons, and the team has not quit on him.

What if we brought in Lovie Smith as DC and Norv Turner as OC and kept Rivera. Superbwls?

That would be hilarious. Rivera's last two superiors now his subordinates. That would be interesting...

This quote just sums up everything for me about Rivera.

I love the Panthers. I wish they had played well early on. But, here's the truth. It happens in any sport. When the pressure is off everyone plays better. And then everyone also says, "see, this is really what we're capable of." Well, of course you are. But, the reason you didn't play like that the first part of the season is the pressure. You blew it. You dropped passes. Couldn't get first downs. Actually, Ron, you didn't go for it on 4th down on numerous occasions. Now, all of a sudden you're going for it. The reason: no pressure. What do you have to lose? The problem is you didn't play like that early enough. And in January. You'll be on your couch just like last year. Please do not use these final games Mr. Richardson as the measuring stick for who your future coach will be. It's easy to coach and make decisions when they don't matter.

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
