Rivera on his job

Cam and co. lead us to a top 5 offense working with Chris Weinke during the lockout offseason. I think we will be just fine with whomever we bring in. The sky is not falling.

the other hard part is geting buy in from the guys, knowing this could be a one and done for the coaches.

its like the coaches are consultants on contract. they have input on day to day stuff but everybody in the break room is like pfft. whatev

we should have pulled the trigger.

it would have been painful, but it would have leveled things out.

JR made a mistake by not letting hurney go when he let fox go. he screwed up again by putting things out of balance again.

one step forward, one step back. that's our panthers.

What's the likelihood that JR turns the table back on Rivera and lets him go due to the loss of Chud? He could easily use the "continuity" angle as to why he fires Rivera and just goes after a new HC and Staff... would make sense if (big 'if') it were to happen

I'm not worried about how Cam will perform... but the offense as a whole has to all be on the same page. Whoever we get, best thing they can do is let Cam be Cam... don't try to force him into some system and nitpick his mechanics. Let him play.

The offense as a whole struggled because everything had to be run through Cam. If we are serious about letting him develop into a truly elite quarterback he can't do everything, and his mechanics have to improve. I don't ever want to take away Cam's ability to break off long runs, and the read option should stay as a wrinkle, but if he's going to take the next step it's going to be throwing the ball, utilizing his running backs to open up play action, and doing the things expected of a pass-first quarterback who just happens to be able to rush for 100 yards.

This would be the best thing for the long-term future of this franchise. I'd be shocked if it happened.

Zero. JR likes to do the nice thing, not the right thing.

You guys slay me. Most of you wanted Chud gone anyway. Now that he is gone you all act like the world is ending. LOL at this.

Or that we will be needing a new coaching staff next year anyway. This is not a fact of life. We very well could do well this year and in years to come. NO ONE knows what the future will bring. Well no one but the huddle experts.

There are quite a few offensive minded coaches out there. Just maybe we will hire one that can get us where we want to go. Ah who am I kidding, according to you folks that is impossible.

I just dont get it.

Half the Rtards complaining about Chud leaving are some of the same Rtards who complained all year about the playcalling.

Yeah, I'm not saying that the coaches shouldn't work on his basics and mechanics, I'm just saying don't go trying to "fix" everything. Cam is an instinctual, athletic QB... he gets it done how he does it. I think if a coach goes and tries to get him to start changing everything, he starts getting too mental and it hampers him.

Build the offense around Cam... don't forget that hey, we actually have some damn good RBs and throw most of that read-option crap out and only use it to keep the defenses on their heels, not as a base offense. Use all the weapons we have... Smitty, Olsen and the running game and get the ball to guys like Tolbert with screens and stuff in space. We didn't do that this season until the second half.

Not going to happen. The only people thinking the world is ending are the huddle masterminds.

Way too many huddlers feel that we cannot find an OC that can run this ship. Or that even if we find one he will only be here one year. This is false logic brought to you by the same folks who hate everything anyway.

Nothing is good enough for some of you. Boo f-ing hoo. I am willing to wait to see how this plays out before I go all balistic on here. Unlike some who go balistic at the drop of the hat.

Ah, the interwebz. You gotta love it.
