Really I am not surprise at all, many of you said that what coach would want to come to a staff in a lame duck situation all I can do is hope that RR gets it right this year and hopefully we are pleasantly surprise this time next year. I am not even really mad.

If you don't think JR has a say in the type of toilet paper they use in the stadium ....you'd be wrong. This guy is involved in everything.

hopefully Shula can add a little pep to the offense

have you ever looked at what he did in tampa?

not exactly what i would call "pep".

he adds nothing.

it's a step backward if anything.

Gettleman's words from his press conference keeping playing in my head..."If we do this thing right RR, JR and me will be lifting the trophy" I really, really want to believe........

I think the reasoning is that they want continuity for Cam and ST. Also I don't think Gettleman would want to hire some people and then can them a year later if he decides to clean house.

Ron Rivera says Jerry Richardson gave him no directives in terms of staff changes, philosophy, etc, when he decided to retain him.

For those asking, Pat Shurmur and Hue Jackson wanted the job. Panthers went w/ continuity and someone who's worked well with Cam.

so. fuging. depressing.

Not really happy with it but kinda feel better for Hue. He would have been on a "perform or your gone" year anyway. So if Rivera and his piece of poo staff dont get it done next year he wont have to be a part of that house cleaning. We might be able to get him next year on the new coaching staff, who knows.

I'm just as upset about Rodgers being promoted as I am Shula. Bobby April was a slam dunk hire who would instantly help our special teams. Continuity isn't nearly as big in that area, because there is a lot of turnover on the bottom half of the roster, which is usually where special teams players are pulled from.

The good news is that we'll get a fresh staff next year after Rivera gets himself and this crew fired.

Once again failing to hire a former head coach as the OC is a huge mistake. He desperately needed someone with that experience on his staff, and he STILL didn't do it, even when he had the clear opportunity.

I'm heartbroken by both of these moves, and have completely lost what little faith I had left in Ron Rivera. 7-9, here we come...again.
