Will we have the balls to cut Rivera midseason in 2013?

I say it's worth hanging onto him at this point mainly b/c the players support him and believe in him. Chud still needs to go this year, and i say bring in Norv. Norv can fully focus on offense, and can coach the QB position. Rivera and McDouchebag can focus on the D and making it a top 10 D. However, if we faulter out of the gate to say 1-5, he needs to be canned immediately to try and salvage the year. As a fan we've been down this road too many times to generate hype for the next year only to come out and lose to the Bills on opening weekend.

If he stays (and I hope he doesn't) I don't care if he stays the whole year, as long as we're watchable next year.

Winning went out the window when this guy came in, so yeah, just hoping we are watchable.

It's not about balls, that's just dumb.

Who becomes the interim then? If we commit to him another season, it will be just that.

If the GM decides to keep him (which I doubt)....Rivera will be on a very short leash. No way he will tolerate another start like we've had the past 2 seasons under Rivera

Time to shiza, or get off ze crapper

6-10, 7-9, 8-8?

anything less than stellar preformance by rivera in the first 25% of the season, at least 2-2 and that is all the time I would give him. I think JR will give him more like half or more of the season.

My vote is 3 games. If not 2-1 and impressive then move on.

No tears if he is gone in a week.

JR isn't going to fire anyone midseason. We need to hope he has the balls to fire him after this year. 7-9 gets it done around here after a previous 6-10 season? I really hope not. It's different to be between 7-9 and 9-7 when you are battling all season for a playoff spot. We were essentially eliminated from the playoffs after 10 games this year...

It begs the question that all sane Panther fans are asking themselves...Why expect anything different after two years of essentially the exact same season (suck at the beginning...turn it on for meaningless games at the end)? My answer is that there will be no difference. None. At. All.

All that JR needs to realize that Ron Rivera is in over his head. He is not a head coach. PERIOD.

You sure about that?

It took JR how many years to get rid of that clown?

Maybe I'm being too optimistic (especially considering our owner) but I really hope he doesn't think that a bunch of worthless wins over the Eagles, Raiders, Chargers, and Saints are worth keeping a coach. We beat two teams this year who are going to the playoffs. Maybe if his piss-poor coaching didn't crap away wins against the Bears, Bucs (TWICE), and Chiefs we'd be fighting for a wild card spot at 9-6 instead of winning meaningless games that are only costing us draft position.

So...really hoping that JR sees through this BS that is happening at this point in the season when it is too late.

Firing a GM midseason isn't so bad because most of his work is finished in the offseason.

Firing a head coach midseason is a pretty good indicator that your organization is a dumpster fire.

But at that point, if that happens its another season of Cam's & every other young player wasted in effect. Lets not let it get to that point
