There are no amazing coaches out there that would instantly make us better. Ron has proven that he's a pretty decent coach so it's worth it to keep him one more year and not have to go through a regime change where for all we know the guy could be worse than Ron.

That's the thought process of every great franchise. We can't possibly give up the tremendous progress that our 13-19 coach has made, so we better stick with him so that we don't fug it up even worse. That's a chicken poo way to approach things, but unfortunately, it's exactly the way the Panthers do approach things.

I sincerely hope I'm wrong. I hope Rivera wins 5 Super Bowls and whoever the new GM is formulates the blueprint for teams to follow going forward. However, I think that has about the same chance of happening as me pulling off a threesome with Kate Upton and Mila Kunis tonight.

Actually, I do, whether we win or lose, there's always something to talk about. Bad or good. But it seems people focus on the bad most of the time and cling on to it like a rabid pitbull and won't let go. Denying them the ability to see the good things on the team.

Haven't you noticed the huddlers that love to bash the team only come out and say things when the team is doing bad? Yet they don't praise any accomplishments, even if they are small. Eh, must be hard to be bitter like that all the time. Personally I can't wait to start winning so they shut the fug up.

where is the positive? other than pit bulls and their gentle behavior... :)

I thought the same thing all along as well, but when someone in his position confirms it it seems worth mentioning.

Certainly worth mentioning.....now don't come back on Monday and tell us it's gonna be Beane...please?

With the choice on the head coach already being made by JR, I don't see a GM candidate with other options coming to Carolina. Why are you going to come to a franchise where the owner is already making your decisions for you?

AKA, Beane Magic.

Again, I hope I'm wrong, but JR making the call on Rivera confirms my worst fears. I'm afraid that JR is following right along in the footsteps of Al Davis and Jerry Jones. He's simply exerting too much control over the football side of operations. At least he knows to stay the fug out of the media... for now.

Well, as pointed out before, only two open GM positions don't have coaches staying or in place if Kelly goes to Cleveland, so there will be a few openings where exactly that has happened....I also keep thinking that since Accorsi was hired, it wasn't to green light an in house promotion of Beane. Maybe JR really wants to get out of the Football decision business, but the only one who knows just how involved he was/is (Hurney) probably won't ever talk about it.

Making the decision on the head coach before a GM was hired doesn't point to JR trying to get out of the football decision making business.

i must say that Rivera coming back is the most underwhelming, unexciting news I've read all week.

Just letting you all know ahead of time.

    • You are wonderful at reacting, but not so much thinking about what you are reacting to. Note the ultra progressive remarks in this article, drink a couple beers, take a nap, then read the article again, my question again, and then "react".  Thanks for your time. http://rense.com/general93/nato.htm

You can build cars for the United States, but for every car that comes to the USA, you will pay 35 percent tax,” he said. “I would tell BMW that if you are building a factory in Mexico and plan to sell cars to the USA, without a 35 percent tax, then you can forget that.” Trump’s new comments impugning the Germans for exporting cars were made in a meeting with the European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, and the European Council president, Donald Tusk. Juncker, Der Spiegel reports, supported the Germans. Another German newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung, reported that E.U. representatives felt their U.S. counterparts did not understand that the E.U. negotiates trade agreements as a single entity, rather than on a country-to-country basis. That is, the U.S. can negotiate trade deals with the E.U. as a whole, but not individually with the separate members of the E.U. Der Spiegel reported that Gary Cohn, the director of Trump’s National Economic Council, appeared to believe that the U.S. could negotiate different trade deals with Germany and Belgium.   This is not the first time this basic misunderstanding has cropped up. When German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the White House in March, she had to explain how E.U. trade deals were negotiated almost a dozen times, a senior German official told the Times of London. “Ten times Trump asked [Merkel] if he could negotiate a trade deal with Germany. Every time she replied, ‘You can’t do a trade deal with Germany, only the EU,’” the official said. “On the eleventh refusal, Trump finally got the message, ‘Oh, we’ll do a deal with Europe then.’”
