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.

Gettleman makes the most sense.
I like Castillo as an upgrade, but Matsko has been allright. I've been wondering if Dave Toub, who had a head coach interview or two, might not be the assistant head coach Rivera needs.


FWIW, unless JR requires it, Rivera won't fire Chudzinski. Don't get upset when it doesn't happen, those of you that are demanding it.

Interesting.

Jonathan Jones says on his Twitter that staff shakeup is a possibility.

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

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.

Pete Prisco's thoughts.

@PriscoCBS: I think the Panthers did the wise thing keeping Rivera. But they have get with the times with that offense. Cam is a passer.

Agreed. On the second part I mean.

Castillo's reportedly on his way to KC to join Reid.

I wouldn't change much from our 5-1 finish and see if the momentum continues.

Fix the panthers? The problem is at the top. The other problems can't be solved until we get improved ownership. Hopefully JR dies before Cam wastes too much of his youth.

1. Accountability? There has been none since the day JR led the lockout.
2. GM? Any candidate who wanted a say in who the head coach would be going forward is no longer a candidate.
3. 6-10 and 7-9 has been confirmed as perfectly acceptable performance.
4. I'll be watching a lot of other good football teams next season and pulling for them. I prefer to not be associated with mediocrity.

I wish the panthers were mediocre. We're a complete joke.

Yes the condascending, fug you JR attitude showed its face today as Rivera is retained and we have yet to hire a GM.
But this is no different than his attitude towards the Players during labor negotiations or his treatment of Panther fans.

I'd be OK with Norv but prefer Whizenhunt.

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


Norv still keeps Cam in the same base offense which is the only reason I like that move...

The main change I would like to see is a minor change in philosophy regarding the beginning if the season. I feel like the lackadaisical Norv Turneresque attitude contributes to a team that is not properly prepared or conditioned until week 8.
That, and fire Chud.

There are about a half a dozen teams interviewing for new GM's. And guess what......NONE OF THEM have hired anyone yet.

We are NOT behind the curve in the GM search.

Damn...we sure do have an impatient fan base.

You want news so bad that you would rather rush and hire someone.

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.


Chud did well last year, only to change what wasn't broken and wait 10 games or so to do anything about it... which I have to assume came from elsewhere.

Doesn't seem that surprising to me..
