This is a good point because as starving fans we just want that 9-7 but realistically we need to chose a coach who has the potential to win the Super Bowl. I don't see it.

The more I reflect on this entire season the harder it is to imagine jr wanting to bring Rivera back.

This coaching staff has let Cam Newton step on his own dick too many times this season and has not done well developing and playing up our talents elsewhere. If we retain them we will have nothing but mediocrity for years to come. We need to hire a gm and head coach/staff who can get the best/most out of our most valuable players, not the best/most out of a bunch of 2nd and 3rd string scrubs. Thats what we have now, and its why we suck and can only inconsistantly beat other suck hole teams.

I think the more interesting issue is the coordinators. Both seem to have improved and both have shown promise. I mean our whole coaching staff were rookies really. Chudinski had that year with the browns and Sean had that one year with the eagles. What will happen there

I think RR is gone. If one game was going to seal his fate, it was the KC game but actually think it is the overall record. The poor record in close games, the embarrassing 2 min drills, poor clock management, the lack of a running game with all the talent, lack of consistency, etc, have already factored in. I do not think that JR will think another losing season is trending up.

Best news of the season,I hope it's true.

Bill Cowher is a leader of man.

While I would like to have Bill as HC here. But the question becomes is how much does he have in the tank left to be the HC in NFL. He has not coach in 5 years. Does he still have it or can he even get players to perform for him like he use to for the Steelers. It's a big question right now if he could do the job or not. Really I would whether go with Chip Kelly at this point then Cowher. Just been honest.

I don't know about Panthers specific, but he has a very good track record. He called Pioli to the Chiefs, Tony Gonzalez to the Falcons, Favre to the Jets. He's a former (and future) NFL exec, so he absolutely has good sources.

The tricky thing is knowing whether he's using sources or giving his opinion here.


I went back to the show and he said he is certain that Reid, Turner, and Rivera will be done on Monday. We will see soon enough if he is right.

I completely agree. As I stated in this thread before I believe Rivera sealed his fate earlier in the season with the losses to KC, Denver, and Tampa Bay. Over the past two year Rivera has not been that good of a coach. He hasn't had any game that says yeah he can eventually get us to the Super Bowl. His wins the past two years only come out at the end of the season. He is 2-8 before the month of December. I think he is done Monday morning.

I will wait till JR says it himself. He said hes looking for progress right?

I think he is now,” Rivera said. “I think early on this year we were doing a lot of things and trying to find certain things. He’s really grasped a lot of the concepts we have now and I think that signifies his development.

Don't care about the late season rallies. Should have seen more early on. I hope Rivera is canned ASAP.

I'm glad Lombardi offered his opinion, but I'm still waiting to see what NJPanther has to say.

I think if he'd gone 8-8 and won any one of those close games that we lost jaw-dropping at the last second he'd be here in 2013, especially with defensive improvements.

I'd be shocked if he was here Monday.
