Right. Rivera's job was saved by winning meaningless games late in the season after any post-season hopes were crushed.

Why can't DeAngelo Williams keep his job after tearing it up in a meaningless game at the end of the season after any post-season hopes were crushed?

Maybe RR would have had an easier time winning games that mattered.....if highly paid players weren't watching from the sideline and instead that money was used on a guy playing every down at a weakness.

I can't understand people still wanting this pointless clusterfluck in our backfield. Not about them as individuals it is about what having highly paid cheerleaders prevents us from doing

I dont think Joe Adams in the dog house is Rivera specific.
Any HC taking over this roster would be hesitant.
I believe he had a total of 24 touches this year and 4 fumbles.

You simply cant put a player on the field who performs like that.
He better get it fixed yesterday or he'll be selling phones in the Mall next year.

For comparison DWill has somewhere in the neighborhodd of 1400 touches and 8 career fumbles.

Gettis sadly won't be retained... And then he'll go to somebody else in the Division and become The perennial Pro Bowler that we all know he will be.

Just like everybody else who leaves the Panthers. Stevie Brown and Dairus Butler are two people just to name a few.

You know I've been too lazy to put this for a while but I suppose I'll do it now

Rivera said early in the season that the reason Adams was in the doghouse wasn't the drops. It's because he wanted the safer north/south guy out there returning punts over Adams and his explosive but east/west tendency.

Just thought is throw that in.

Any player that will give the Panthers + cap space = player in danger. (Outside a few)

I never understood Deangelo getting benched in the first place, we saw him do great things long before Rivera and Chud got here. They didnt know how to use him, its their fault for trying to run that stupid offense and not actually putting him in a system to succeed. Everything single thing has revolved around Cam when it shouldnt have.

Adams' earned his benching. Rivera finally gives him a second chance and he blew it. IMO, he has one offseason to break this habit. The next time Rivera sees him drop something, The only field he will see will be at practice.

Rivera is building his team. And some of Fox and Hurney guys are still a part of this team. I just believe he deserves another year to build his team.

I don't know what's overrated about seeing a rookie make the plays he did... There is proof he CAN play. Again, Simms said during our CBS broadcast this year that Gettis was explosive and would be a big contributor to our offense for years to come. Yet, Rivera publicly argued with him and he never saw the active list again thereafter.

You can't teach his size/speed combo, and he can get behind a defense. People want to downplay what he did as a rookie and compare him to Drew Carter... Well, Carter never made the type of plays Gettis did. EVER.

yes, I believe he will be a contributor for years to come but,

the only time Simms saw Gettis this year was at a Friday walk-thru...........in shorts.
