Darin Gantt@daringantt
Just from the guys fired today, the Panthers could find upgrades. I'd be interested in Lovie Smith and Ken Whisenhunt if I'm JJR.



Darin Gantt@daringantt
Both Whisenhunt and Lovie have NFL experience, went to Super Bowls. Whiz with a QB, Lovie without.



Darin Gantt@daringantt
In fact, you could say that Ken Whisenhunt was the winning coach in the last meaningful game in Bank of America Stadium (2008 playoffs).



Darin Gantt@daringantt
Then you'd be wrong. Has that Pittsburgh link the old man digs, too. RT @UNCrules2187: Ken Whisenhunt? Bleh. I’d keep Rivera over him.



This is a very interesting idea. On the one hand, Ken Whisenhunt has been an awesome OC/HC in the past and has done the best with the very little he has been given at the QB position. On the other hand, he has reportedly been involved in the QB debacle that has happened there, being in on the Kolb trade, etc.

Not that high on Whisenhunt as a head coach. As an OC maybe, but that's only likely if Rivera's gone.

Guys who leave the Steeler system often don't succeed as much outside of it.

Funny, just yesterday I was about to make a post about what people thought of Whis. I wouldnt mind it one bit. Whis was undermined by crappy QBs after Warner, would definately be ok with Whis

I'm all for getting rid of Ron as long as we hire a clear upgrade. Wisenhunt and Lovie don't fit that bill.

Ummm well. LMFAO!! Are you kidding me. Is this guy smoking something before typing that. LOL The Cards suck. Don't want someone like that. Saints thoughts former Rams HC and now current Saints DC Spags was going to make their D better, but it didn't happen this year. Spags failed and so would these guys. Sorry no thanks. Move on.

How is Whis not a upgrade? He has tons of HC experience and went to the SB recently

meh, what JR really needs to do is this.

Keep Rivera.

Throw a some cash at Norv. Let Norv be our OC b/c # 1 he is much better than Chud and #2 gives Ron a former HC on staff (which he admitted he poo'd up not having.

Ron is worth having pending he can get a good OC. Chud cost us this season. Rivera doesn't have tons of D talent and turned them into a top 10 D. He can do a lot more with talent.

This is kind of the way I feel about it. Sure, he is probably a better coach than Rivera, but is he so much better that we scrap what we've done for two years to get him? No, I don't think he is.

However, if Rivera was to be let go, and I were the GM, I would definitely interview Whisenhunt.

an upgrade potential as a HC in terms of game management. He can't do what Rivera did with out D.

Biggest factor is we need to be consistant around Cam. That alone probably is worth not doing anything this year with our coaches. Cam stability in the short term likely pays bigger gains for us big picture.
