Rivera is staying: Fix the Panthers

47 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

So NFL Network says the Panthers just announced that Ron Rivera is staying.

What needs to happen on his assistant coaching staff to turn things around?

McDermott, I'm good with staying, the D has plenty of blue sky going forward.

Chud on the other hand must go. The offense the first ten plus games of this season is simply unforgivable.
I hope Ron is on the phone with prospective OCs as we speak.

Thoughts?

I hope you're right, but fear you're wrong.

In the same vein, I'm hoping for Gettleman, but fearing it's going to be Beane.

Chud should go I agree and I hope JR made that clear to Rivera and made the decision for him.

First choice would be Ken Whzenhunt, OC/Assistant HC.

There are changes I'd like to see on staff (special teams coach, OL coach) but I'm not expecting anything.

Still believe Gettleman winds up GM.

I wouldn't shed a tear if Chud was let go, but I don't think there's any way that happens. I just hope Rivera keeps him on a short lease next year.

Gettleman or Ross at GM, and Norv Turner at OC or anywhere on the Offensive staff and we'll see a brighter future. If not, Rivera will be fire by week 5 of the new season.

We better[size=6] HIT[/size] big on our no.1 pick again. Hurney left us with Cam and Luke, we better hit another straight year. Rivera and GM better learn how to use the FA quickly also.

I'd be on board with Gettlemen.
I hope the first thing that happens is Gettlemen and Rivera are locked in a room together for a week.
There seemed to be a disconnect between what Hurney put on the roster and how Rivera or more precisely Chud utilized that talent.
We cant afford not to have a focused, common goal and a belief how to achieve it moving forward.

I'd almost bet Accorsi has had conversations with all the GM candidates to be sure they would be okay with RR staying.

Firing Chud means he needs someone from the Norv tree.

Oh what a tick....Norv is available. Also fixes the admitted mistake Rivera made about not having a former HC on staff.

If Richardson is serious about winning. Rivera, Norv, McD.

I expect a ST move. Hope for Norv at OC but am just dreaming.

i don't think chud will be let go but will be encouraged to look elsewhere if he chooses, i think Norv gets hired as the Ast Head Coach & maybe replaces Shula. if Chud leaves then Shula stays & Norv is also OC

Dave Toub would likely be the best choice at ST if he's available,. Other than that, Bobby April (assuming he doesn't join Andy Reid in KC).

I think the o line coach deserves a medal for the line doing as well as they did with what was available - you realize we ended the year with a back up backup center?

i hope that happens.

at this point, tho, i don't see any changes.

until something positive happens i'm expecting nothing more than the status quo.

As far as the GM hire goes, I think you all, like I did, should voice your opinions on the Panthers facebook page. at least let them know you won't settle for Beane Magic

Funny how the thinking was exactly opposite last year. Chud was awesome and McDermott sucked. We focused on the defense last year and fixed it. Now the offense is broken and McDermott is great. Maybe the solution is focus on the offense and fix it and Chud would be fine going forward. He is the same guy he was last year only hopefully much wiser.

I'd be OK with Norv but prefer Whizenhunt.

Any one see any tweets from the PLayers and their reactions to Rivera staying?

Interesting.

Jonathan Jones says on his Twitter that staff shakeup [b][i]is[/i][/b] a possibility.

If so, you could guess it'd be on offense or ST. Not much reason to change the defensive staff.

[/quote]for me to have any faith in this team going forward, there would have to be.

someone has to be held accountable. changes have to be made because i can't believe that this team is fine with the status quo.
