Could be my imagination or optimism but it feels like we're being more thorough than usual. Really like Wisenhunt.

Yeah but if he's offered the chargers job he would be an idiot not to take it

Good news is that the Panthers did not automatically promote Shula. Not sayinghe would not be good...just have no idea. Options are being explored...looks like this will be a thourough, thoughtful decision. I think it is a very big one.

Think the Chargers would really offer him the job?

The Chargers have a lot of candidates, that job is very much up in the air. Biggest rumor I heard was that if Lovie gets the job, he'd want to bring on Wisenhunt as his OC. But as far as I know both are interviewing for HC.

I never understood the idea of "just promote Shula to keep the same offense." If it was that easy why not just promote the O line coach or any offensive coach for that matter if all we are looking for is a body to just call out the same plays?!. I heard Shula was never a great O coordinator anyway. I love how for once we are actually targeting the big fish like Jackson, Whis and a lesser extent Shurmur. Atleast we arent going about this the usual "avoid household name guys at all costs" Panther way and are looking to make a splash for once.

Why in the hell would Rivera want to bring in a guy who will be his replacement if the panthers start out 0-3 next season?

Rivera's seat is about as hot as it can get. Bringing in Whisenhunt would be pouring gasoline on top of it.

There's a lot to like about Whisenhunt.

For starters, his successful years as the head guy in Arizona really contrasts his succesful years as the Pittsburgh OC.

Says to me he can adapt, and do it successfully.

Not to mention it brings a guy with some HC experience aboard, something Rivera needs.

Rivera's seat is hot regardless of who he picks. If he's afraid of getting the boot in the middle of the season, why bother at all?

I would be very happy with either Ken or Hue. Both are quality choices.
