Kuechly, Kalil, Davis, Olsen, Johnson, Hardy, Tolbert, Dwan Edwards, likely Brandon LaFell, probably others too.

This isn't Madden. In the real world, you can't just cut everybody.

My mistake it was not a tweet, appears it was a comment to a reporter on the morning of the firing.

"I didn’t know the GM coached,' Johnson said. "Whenever the GM start coaching and all that? If they’re blaming it on him then I guess he’ll just take the fall for it.

"It is what it is. I just thought it was bad timing."

Seems pretty cut and dry to me. Where does he mention players?


In those comments, he doesn't. Based on more recent comments though I'd say he's changed his tune.

Still haven't seen anything from an offensive player.

No the last two consecutive wins occured last year in December, against Houston and Tampa Bay.

Still embarrassing, nonetheless.

oh yeah...at the end of the season when it was just for a little bit of pride.

winning's better than losing, but couldn't we find a way to do it more and earlier in the season?

All the more reason to retain Rivera for another season right? Beane as GM would be the icing on the cake!

i can think of worse options than rivera, tho still not ideal imo. mike mccoy for starters.

i can't think of worse than bean.

this is getting depressing to ponder.

there is a decent chance a new GM is brought in and allowed to make the choice on whether to keep Rivera or not.

if rivera wins out, it would be hard for JR to fire him.
