Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports "hears" that Panthers head coach Ron Rivera is "safe" and will not be fired after the season.

Cole follows that up by saying that "there's more talk" that interim general manager Brandon Beane will get the full-time job. This report goes against what NFL Network's Michael Lombardi said earlier in the week when he said Rivera would "certainly" be fired on Monday, but we'd trust Cole's source more than Lombardi's personal opinion. Carolina enters Week 17 having won four-of-five games, and the team has a chance to finish at 7-9 should they beat the Saints on Sunday. Rivera has the Panthers defense sitting at No. 8 in the league, and after a slow start, Cam Newton has been stellar over the past month or two, getting the offense up to a respectable No. 17 in the NFL.

The part about Beane scares me more than anything. But I seriously doubt that it. Why bring in an outside source if you won't look outside, and why wait till the end of the season to hire Beane, when you could have already done it?

I predicted 6-10 this season and will anticipate nothing more next season if Rivera is retained and Beane is promoted.

But think of the exciting run we'll make once we're out of contention!

The Beane/Rivera combo would be absolutely disastrous. If we bring in a GM and he decides to give Rivera another shot to prove he hasn't wasted 2 years of this franchise's time, then so be it. I'll support Rivera for another year. But for God's sake we have to make a real attempt at a real, NFL experienced GM this time. Not some sportswriter, not some intern or whatever Beane was doing before halfway through this season.

I just pray Cole's "source" is Rivera or Beane's agent and there's nothing to it.

True dat! I can't wait for December 2013 and possibly winning 3 of 4 when it means nothing!

I can't believe this, why bring in Ernie if we are just going to promote Beane as GM. Isn't that like defeating the purpose of having a consultant. I just find it extremely hard to believe this article. That combo of Rivera and Beane will be a disaster.

Lombardi also said this morning that he is still hearing Rivera is not safe. Lombardi must have a inside source because he keep repeating that Andy, Norv, and Rivera will be let go.
