The Senior Bowl is in 9 days. It'd sure be nice if Mr. Rivera would get his staff in place before that..

Wonder if they are waiting on someone still in the playoffs


Did a little digging on 49er QB Coach Geep Chryst and re-learned something I had forgotten.

Chryst was on the coaching staff (specifically, offensive quality control coach) of the Chicago Bears from 1991 through 1995. Ron Rivera's Bears career lasted through 1992. There's at least the possibility they're acquainted, though they wouldn't likely have worked together.

If the name sounds familiar to you, it should. Chryst was a member of John Fox's coaching staff in Carolina from 2006 to 2010 (quality control, tight ends).

Speculation is that Chryst will join former Panther colleague Mike McCoy as the OC in San Diego.

If we're waiting for anyone in the playoffs, I suppose it could be him. It's a bit of a stretch though.

Here's another remote connection from a playoff staff.

Ivan Fears, the Patriots receiver coach, was the Bears WR during the 97 and 98 seasons. Rivera was with the Bears as a defensive quality control guy. Fears is a 35 year coaching vet who's coached every facet of offense except tight ends but has never been an OC.

Again, it's a shoestring. I doubt he's a candidate.

Nobody else from a playoff staff seems like a very logical option (not that those two made all that much sense, honestly). There are some prospects but none with any Rivera connections.

I don't really think that's the hold up. Could be, but it doesn't make all that much sense.

Of the ones that have interviewed, I'd choose Hue Jackson, no question.

Worth remembering that the Panthers tend to keep everything quiet. thus, just because we aren't hearing anything doesn't mean nothing is happening.

i heard he wants to work on peyton's staff in denver.


John Fox wins close games, therefore, I'm sure the truth was Peyton came in a close 2nd on reasons to head to Denver..
