It's time for all the negativity, back-handed compliments (i.e., he is just a nice guy) and insults, and outright stupidity to stop. Rivera is our guy going into next season. He hasn't been all good, but he hasn't been as bad a coach as some of you are trying to make him out to be. Rivera got J-Rich's blessing, so deal with it! We missed the playoffs. Deal with it! Go have a drink! Jump on another bandwagon! Go worship Bob 3! Do something more productive than continuing to insult the coach.

I never believed in the power of negative thinking, and I still don't. If that's what floats your boat, then make sure you don't forget your life preservers. Once you get fished out of the sea of negativity a year from now, you can liken your experience to a baptism. It will be a baptism by Ron Rivera. Once we get you all dry and warmed up in front of the fire, top dawg will have a nice slow-cooked pot of crow stew waiting on the stove for you.

God bless the Panthers, and God bless Chico!

Criticizing Ron Rivera is a win for worldwide terrorism!

People crying about others complaining is always more annoying than people complaining.

Why do you think nobody likes brooklyn bully?

I was somewhat on the fence about keeping him but what I thought was the most convincing was the locker room support. Those guys had nothing to play for but it looked like everyone sacked up and played out the season. Maybe they didn't all play for Rivera but it is clear he has the ear of the locker room. Despite the emotion on the board, I think starting over would have been a set back.

Who was talking about him still? I mean, of course there's a little talk still going on but for the most part, I thought the talk of Rivera died down since yesterday.

I was as disappointed as anyone when we kept him. I was a high on Kelly as anyone. I really still do think keeping Rivera will turn out to be a bad idea.

But I know enough to know I'm not always right and I hope I'm wrong. I'm not going into the season spouting "Damnit I hope they lose every game just so I can tell people I was right". I'll give this team, and Rivera as the coach, as much support next season as I do every season. If he turns the corner and shows he has the goods this season I will be more than happy to eat mounds and mounds of crow. I certainly won't cheer for losses or mistakes.

If we secure a playoff berth next year I will fully support him remaining our coach. But if we fail to make the playoffs next year, barring cataclysmic event like Cam going down to season ending injury, I will be right back on my fire Rivera and hire someone worth a poo bandwagon the moment the last game of 2013 is over.

I don't think it's the right decision, but I hope Rivera proves me wrong.

Well, actually I am not crying about others complaining, I am telling them to shut the hell up. It's time to move on, plain and simple. Don't know brooklyn bully that well, but brooklyn bully is not top dawg. If you like me, that's fine. If you don't, that's fine also. I am just saying what needs to be said at the moment.

Critiquing any aspect of your team is a fans right. Everyone does it. Its how we go about expressing our beliefs that sets us apart. There are different levels of fandom. But ulitimately, we all root for the same team. Only having message boards like this just makes it more fun.
