I was watching the "A Football Life" episode about Jimmy Johnson last night, and they mentioned in it how several coaches we now consider to be legends had really crappy seasons the first couple of years with their teams. Then they went on to build storied franchises that we still talk about today. I think we have become a people who demand instant gratification instead of being willing to have the patience and determination to build something truly unique and special. Given that every other Panthers coach has been afforded at least three years to get the job done, I am willing to extend RR the same courtesy. Keeping in mind that he's still learning how to be a head coach too, I look at what I see on the team now and I see progress. I think fairness dictates he get his third year.
