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.

"Panthers PR spokesman Charlie Dayton has said Ron Rivera is staying and preparing for next season."

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 HIT 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.
