I'm told Jerry Richardson has yet to decide if Ron Rivera returns. They meet Saturday. Richardson, not the new GM, will make the call.

...so let me get this straight, we've sat on this decision until now???

Not fair to Rivera or the organization, IMO.

Wonder what would make JR wait almost a week to decide? Maybe we're waiting on word from another HC candidate we have our eye on, or maybe we were waiting for our desired GM candidate to weigh in on whether or not he'd take the job with the condition that Rivera get at least one more year?

IDK, but I'm shocked to hear that JR hasn't actually made a decision yet...

wow kind of feel bad for Ronnie here. That is a long time to not know if you will have a job or not.

Ive been thinking long and hard, i will admit i stick by my opinion that if we beat the Saints and went 7-9 Rivera should stay, but JR taking this long shows JR is not 100% convinced Rivera will take the Panthers to the next level and in my opinion, as a football club owner, you MUST be 110% confident you have the right guy as HC, the fact JR is "agonizing" over this and hasnt yet decided just hours before meeting with him tells me JR is not confident Rivera is the guy to lead this team.

JR making the decision is about the most disappointing thing the Panther's could have done minus keeping Beane as the GM. For the culture of this team to change, he needs to get the hell out of the way.

While I feel bad for him in having to wait, he did kind of bring this on himself. He changed an offense that was top five in 2011. You know that old saying, don't try to fix what's not broken.

there is literally nothing about this situation that i feel good about.

things should be happening faster. other teams are moving and we're sitting on our asses so we'll be forced to pick from the bottom.

awesome.

the panthers organization is jacked up.

it's almost as if everything is done at a whim's notice...no real direction or gameplan whatsoever.

"wait, what? the season's over?! rivera? ummm....uhhhh...errrr....give me a minute."

    • Was just thinking about that last night. MJ and Cho might have something up their sleeves. Dont count us out. Gordon signed his name on papers with us last time when we were far worse than now.  I dont think Boston is the clear choice for Hayward. 
    • And by terrific I mean awful.
    • Exactly. You'll gain weight even eating below 2,000 if all your calories come from carbs/fats. Dieting is about tailoring your proteins/carbs/healthy fats within a calorie requirement. There are min/max to all three of these. I keep it at 50/40/10 depending on how I'm working on my body at the moment. 50% protein, 40% carbs, 10% fat within a certain calorie intake. I'll raise he fat and lower the carbs to lose weight. People also look at that and say wow half my calories can be yummy carbs and fat! Those carbs are rice veggies and beans/quinoa and the fat is avacado peanut butter or fish though so not really. On a diet like IGO's, as long as fats are watched, it's almost unecesscary to count calories. This diet would never work for me because of my needed protein intake...beans and tofu only have so much to offer someone building muscle. However I eat read meat 2-3 times a month, and alternate between fish and chicken otherwise with the occasional bean/pea/tofu day.
