Cardinals playoff game + following seasons continued meltdowns from Jake + following seasons 2-14 record + lockout and back to back 2-8 starts kinda suck the life out of a fan base. Not saying there can't be intelligent conversations, but for most why debate something intelligently when the team's likely not going to make a sound solid football decision. Rivera is now for all intents an purposes a lame duck coach with an even worse staff then last year. That sounds like a bad decision and looks like a disaster waiting to happen, ala 2010. Hopefully Cam and Rivera have grown a ton from last season, because if not Gettleman is looking for a new coach for a team with tons of ?, next offseason.

Yes, why be intelligent while the team sucks.

Glad us got an excuse for everything.

Whats gooing on that can be discussed intelligently? Rivera is a lame duck coach with staff members on a one year basis. His staff is diminished in quality from last years. It's a season coming up that Carolina will have to cut major talent from the team, high quality starters with nothing but ?'s behind them. Team is missing draft picks and is in cap hell. So there isn't going to be any major additions except for a few rookies. All of this for a team with major needs already at wr, ol, dt, cb and s.


Let's recap here.

Lame duck coaching stafff, cap hell, major subtractions from the talent of the team, no major additions or fixe from fa. Missing draft picks for a team with multiple major needs before the mass cuts begin. Minus Carolina actually having a qb, it starting to look a whole lot like 2010 all over again.

That pretty much sums it all up.

Some people just ride around on a high horse and think we are going to the SB every year despite major evidence to the contrary.

Then they try to make fun of other teams to make themselves feel better, which is sad because the teams they usually bring up actually have SB wins.

I think Gettleman will actually get Rivera a couple decent players, and help him out a ton. Things aren't going to be as bad as you think...

Some teams just need a good coach, others need a good QB, and then there are teams like the Panthers whose problem seem more deeper than a quick coach, and QB change. Here's hoping the shake-up will be the shot the team needed to get back into the game.
