Mr. Scot

More changes to come? Possible

Recommended Posts

Well we should've kept the same people, but they were supposed to change who they are & what they do...

But, but, but, isn't that Rivera's job. To make not only the players better, but the coaches as well?

I am sure that if Rivera didn't believe he could upgrade the staff he would have kept who he had. I love what is going on. We are not the same Org. we were. We are trying to improve. We just may get better, and not necessarily worse as some would have you believe.

You mean the annual job fair?

This is truer than you know. You wouldn't believe how many coaches who are out of the game I've seen kissing butt with coaches they know they might have an opportunity with over the years.

Jim Haslett comes to mind as the most pitiful.

Yeah, although we do have the advantage of the HC in place with all these secondary coaching positions open (or may yet open if Chud raids our staff), teams that dont have a HC yet are gonna get the leftovers assuming Rivera's apparent lame Duck status doesn't keep quality assistants away from Carolina.

Funny that many on here call RR a lame duck coach.

It is not his last year under contract and JR has said nothing to say next year is ER's last here.

Many on here consider Rivera to have a one year window to work with and impress Gettleman as Rivera was interviewed and retained by JR before the new GM was in place.

Nothing funny about it really.

I seriously doubt we're going to allow any of our D coaches to interview with them. Not worried at all.

Neither Eric Washington nor Sam Mills III (good a job as they've done) have enough experience to merit a DC job. And Belin, obviously, is gone. Would be no shock if Chudzinski picked him up (ditto Graves and Settle).

Wilks is another story. He was reportedly Rivera's first choice for DC but he couldn't get permission from the Chargers. Then McDermott unexpectedly came available and the rest was history.

On the defensive side, he's the one I'd worry about. Though in truth, there are more experienced candidates out there (Mel Tucker, for example).

He isnt a lame duck unless we lose .What GM will fire a coach that gets you a 10-6 season except Chicago.

Defensive coaches may be safe.

Word from Adam Schefter that Chudzinski is targeting John Pagano of the Chargers for his DC.
