Is getting rid of Chud actually a good thing?

The second half of the season was a mirage. His playcalling still sucked.

I just remember when everyone wanted henning gone and then we got davidson. I think chud is going in the right direction.
Fox wanted a yes man.
Rivera wants a dynamic offense.

Dallas game- heavy dose of the read option and we should have won that game if the defense didn't collapse in the 4th
Chicago game- traditional running game with Cam dropping back passing and only running when pressured. We should have won that game but the defense collapsed in the 4th again.
I HIGHLY suggest anyone who is serious about breaking down and understanding the Panthers positives and negatives must get NFL Rewind. I have watched every game 2 or 3 times. This Panthers team would be in the playoffs if Rivera could close out a 4th quarter on 5 games where we were winning. It comes down to poor coaching a very poor defense in the 4th. When a team can run the same slant play 5 times until they score....we have a problem. This happened in every 4th quarter loss. The defense did not adjust and gave up the same play calls several times.

Why is everyone pissed about the read option? Many teams are using it and it works for them. If you look at the game planning for EACH game, Chud actually game planned for each team differently. All you have to do is watch the Dallas and Chicago games
I so totally totally agree with this. Chud studied for games. Never gave Cam more than he could handle and always game planned to win the game. While letting Cam learn to read defenses and set protections and understand a teams' defensive tendencies so he could anticipate what they would do. However, poo does happen. Case in point: the Seattle game. Chud had them exactly where he wanted them at the end of the game and if not for a bounced pass ......
