I know your going to hate me for this one Mr. Scot, but with Rivera back, Beane's chances of keeping his job, just went up majorly.

Joe Person@josephperson

Panthers next will begin interviewing GM candidates on Monday. Acting GM Brandon Beane very much in the mix .

I kinda feel bad for Rivera. He is in a really shitty situation right now.

Jerry told him after Hurney was gone that the team better improve. The team went on the finish 6-4 after that talk. So, in way, it'd be a little messed up if JR let him go. However, if Rivera does stay he is going to have a very rough test. Why? Because the GM is going to come in a clear out all those stupid contracts Hurney fugged us with, leaving Rivera with less talent. This will inevitably lead to Rivera being let go and us finding a new coach next offseason.

I know what you're thinking, this sounds stupid. But just think about it. JR is clueless. Look at what happened last time we went through a transition. JR and Hurney laid low and didn't spend any money. They even cut some players to make more room. In other words, they started a rebuilding project. Well, this left Fox with a completely poop team and no chance of having a winning season. The following offseason, Fox was let go and Hurney went on a spending spree that has screwed this franchise over. A little over a year later, Hurney is fired but his mistakes will haunt the team for a couple more seasons.

Let's bring this all together.

Jerry does it all wrong. First, he puts coaches in crappy situations (first Fox and now, potentially, Rivera). Like I said above, if Rivera stays I expect next season to be a lot like Fox's final season. No hope. Second, when Fox was let go why didn't we just let Hurney go at the same time? Why didn't we start over completely? We fired Fox, who wasn't the problem, and kept Hurney, who obviously was the problem.

Jerry finally has a chance to start over with a clean slate. A new coaching staff and a new GM. But he won't. He will bring in a new GM will have no choice but to clean house (player-wise) and leave Rivera with very little to work with. Leading to another set back when we have to hire another coach next year.

Remember when Jerry said he had a plan 3 years ago? I think it's safe to say his plan sucked.

And please, put your home-team biases aside and accept the reality. We are screwed cap wise. The new GM is gonna have to make a lot of very unpopular moves.

Now that right there explains why Jerry Richardson is too old to be fu*k ing with football operations. The game is past him. I mean damn one day the fans, the city of Charlotte, NC, SC would love to see a superbowl champion. Thanks you hit that post on the head. Can we mail this to JR somehow?

Basically, now people are getting it. All over the local twitter channels.

Hurney didn't make decisions, JR did. Hurney just a fall guy, next guy is just a yes sir guy. JR still makes all the decisions here in Carolina. Accorsi's job was to find JR a solid candidate that would be a Yes sir type of guy.

Said it before, will continue to say it, keeping Rivera is a mistake. The man's 13-19, 2-12 in games decided by a TD. Good guy, overmatched.
