Michael Lombardi said on 'Inside the NFL' he thinks Ron Rivera, along w/ Andy Reid and Norv Turner, 'certainly' will be gone on Monday.

Rivera was probably as good as gone when Hurney got canned. Rarely do you see a GM replaced and the coach retained. The new GM doesn't want any part of the coach whose failures played a large role in creating the job opening that he just filled.

I have to agree with Lombardi. I think Rivera sealed his fate a while back. I really do believe the Panthers will have a new coach for the 2013 season. I think JR has seen enough for the past two years to determine that Rivera is not the guy to lead this team and mostly to get us a championship.

Well if Vince Lombardi is saying this, we should listen.

we should tally up all the times mike lombardi's been right on something against all the times he's been wrong on something and calculate the probability of this happening.

Winning meaningless games at the end of the season doesn't impress me. I like Rivera and I think he might figure it out one day, but I've seen him lose virtually every close game we've been in. I've seen us lose some unthinkable games by going way conservative at the end allowing our opponent to pull off a miracle.

The bottom line is that there is way too much talent on this team for us to be playing for 7-9 and to have been out of the playoff picture weeks ago. We didn't start winning games until we were already playing for nothing.

Exactly people forget how bad a coach Rivera really is in late game situations.He doesn't know how to manage timeouts and he is the master of panic.He shows no emotion as a coach win or loss,I don't want him as our coach because he didn't stick up for our franchise qb during his early season struggle,instead he let Cam take all the blame in the media and stayed quiet.What kind of coach does that?

Ron Rivera can't win with him,can't play with him,can't do it.
