I believe JR is giving Rivera a chance to get his ducks in a row so when he meets with him he can lay out a plan to get the panthers to the playoffs next season. If JR does not like the plan and is not convinced, JR will fire Rivera.

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

Like Mick Mixon said on the radio today, Rivera could have been fired at any point this season after Hurney got canned and he knew it. Plus hes making about $4000 a day to not know. I dont feel sorry for Rivera - he made his own bed.

Feel sorry for us Panthers fans if you want to feel sorry for anyone.

My guess is that the reason for the delay on a Rivera decision is that JR wants to have Rivera explain what went wrong and what plans he has to fix the problems. And I do think he wants to give Rivera a genuine opportunity to present his best case, so gave him the week to prepare. After all, up until the finale, RR was focused on the season and not preparing for what is essentially a job interview. So, if this is actually the case, it is very fair to Rivera...albeit frustrating for the fans.

This is totally hypothetical, but given the Cowher rumors maybe JR is stalling while he waits for a decision from Cowher?

He may have given Cowher a deadline of midnight tonight to accept the job.

yeah no way this is true

Later today,

JR to Rivera: Nice knowing you but you're fire. There's the door. Don't let it hit you on your way out.

Not really, he shouldn't make the decision. If he wants to run the Panther's in a good way, then a GM should make the decision. Not the owner.

If only Jerry would look at what's happening to Jerruh over in Dallas.

Never mind, too much ego in both towns.

Until either the GM is hired or Rivera is fired there is nothing to talk about in regards to the panthers there just isn't. It will happen before the end of next week and I kinda figured it would take two weeks from the get go.

All of you wanting it done now and are crying about it taking so long are funny, the arguable best HC canidate as far as many are concerned just hit the market in Chip Kelly(I'm just Luke warm on him) so what do the panthers have to loose? Nothing

Kelly hit the market and was snatched up before JR was finished stirring his metamucil.

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."

So we are taking our time and evaluating both the HC and GM hires....hired a consultant to evaluate pissible GM candidates...not making a knee jerk decision...

And we are doing everything on a whim?

Ridiculous

Kelly is massively over rated and we were never interested in him.

Can he use aspects of his style and build a successful scheme? Maybe

But, the scheme is us running now will n
