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

16 posts in this topic

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.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
