This is a big step back in my opinion. I was fine with Rivera staying but you can't downgrade our coaching staff across the board and expect improvement.

If Shula wasn't named Shula he would not be an NFL coach.

Here is a relevant question for people who wanted some other person at OC.

Has Jackson ever been an OC during a season that didn't end with the head coach being fired?

I didn't hate the retention of Rivera when it was announced. I preferred someone else, but I swallowed my bitterness over his mishandling of this team and I was willing to give him another shot. After this horseshit move though, I'm fuging done with him. We had a couple of vacancies to fill and we could have brought in proven, talented people to fill those vacancies but because of Rivera's insecurity of his job we promoted from within. We promoted part of the failures to continue the failing. I'll never give up on the Panthers but I have fuging given up on Rivera.

Everyone that saw Smith play knew he was going to be special. Not being given a chance and then succeeding when given the chance is not the same as sucking and then 13 years not sucking....that rarely happens.

idk how relevant his prior stint at OC is, but that's all we have to look at... So criticism based on that is legitimate to me.

I don't pretend to know how he's going to do... I hope he does well, but it doesn't seem like the right move for the team.

Exactly...when given a chance, he succeeded. Yeah Shula got a chance, but it was with who at qb? Shawn King? He had a better relationship with Cam (who is 3/4 of our offense), than chud did,,

We might as well hope for the best.

If the Panthers get a decent o-line, and gives Newton a little time, its not going to matter much.

If he fails, Rivera fails and the lot of them will be gone this time next year and we will most likely have a high draft pick.

If he succeeds, well, then we will have something winning NFL teams have, continuity.

Gettleman absolutely must fix those lines.

The Bucs had no QB that year. I mean seriously...Clausen is the equivalent to Shaun King.

Typical Panthers. Maybe this time will be different. We do have Cam, after all.
