So at 8-8 we'd be picking 20s instead of 15.
Whooptiefugingdoo.
we need better than that.


7+3 is 10...

Great. I can't wait to start next year 1-5 and finish off the season 7-9 again.

The GM should look at Rivera's time management, situational decisions, and personnel approach... If they evaluated that fairly, he wouldn't get another chance.

You could say Nakamura starting alone was worth several losses and at the least, it was the reason for the Atlanta loss. Yet, he refused to bench him immediately, instead, he made a gestural move to appease the masses by reducing his snaps, but kept him as a starter. SMH...

The numerous timeouts he's burned and wasted. The points he's left on the field as a result. His lack of involvement (perceived) on gameday.

His broken record pressers.

His numerous gaffes in the media admitting his horrible decisions - THINK "we wanted to make them systematically beat us."

Not to mention, CJ inferred that coaches were the problem when Hurney was fired and he was angry about the decision. But, now he supports Rivera? So, when we start off the season slumping again, is Rivera the problem AGAIN?

Another thing to keep in mind... Just because the players like a coach, it doesn't mean he's the right coach. It could mean they're comfortable in the culture, especially if we've grown accustomed to not being challenged by it. Not saying that is the case, but to question a coach halfway through the season, and then to say you fully support him after he accumulates several meaningless wins and maintains the status quo of mediocrity that has been set for our team... I just have reservations.

It was clear that he was the problem and now, magically, he's not.

But, it doesn't matter what we say... He WILL be the coach here next year. There are no mistakes on Panthers.com.

Well to be fair our QB threw a pick 6 on a screen pass today.


True.

But Romo's failures in crunch time are becoming legend.

Actually, I am pretty sure he meant the players. Judging from his tweets... "The players need play better" type of tweet, and then calling out guys saying that some weren't working as hard as others.

IIRC, he said the bit about players after a game.

If you can 8789, try to find the exact tweets and audio from CJ's interview the day Hurney was fired. I clearly remember him saying, "Last time I checked, GMs don't coach."

That exact quote gives me tons of questions when it comes to this support he's getting now. CJ wouldn't say that if it hadn't already been talked about.

It will be an interesting offseason.

He has actually orchestrated some very nice late game drives for leads.
That Rivera's defense gave right back.

He's also skipped passes to wide open WRs like in the Seattle game.(can't blame coach on that one)

No one is confusing Cam for clutch at this time.

Even in today's game he skipped a pass to a wide open Murphy and vs the Raiders he missed Murphy and Smith for wide open TDs.

I agree with you man. Rivera hasn't shown me anything that says he will be better next year then he was this year. If It wasn't for that shitty stretch against a couple of shitty teams that are in the same situation we are in the huddle would have a different mood. I hope like hell that he isn't retained but known my luck he will be back and we will be mediocre again next year.

Without getting into the argument of whether or not Cam is clutch, hopefully you do realize that all QB's miss receivers from time to time, just as all receivers drop easy balls from time to time (as they did on several occasions today).

When QB's start having completion % in the high 90's, then it's fair to complain about a missed pass here and there.

Another mediocre season that will leave us out of a high draft pick in 2013
