yea but the prevailing sentiment always changes to avoid coming to grips with a few harsh realities

One of the most important qualities of a coach is to be able to objectively evaluate what is going on around him. I think Rivera not only can do that with the players but is candidly honest about himself. He admits he made mistakes and is learning the job. He doesn't make excuses for his problems but shoots from the hip.

Anybody think that Fox would have admitted he made mistakes?

I am confident that Rivera is going to come out of the chute like the Panthers will, fired up and ready to make the playoffs. The coaches and players are going to hungry for success and will be working hard. This is going to be 2005 all over again. I thought it was going to be last year but believe that 2013 will be our year.

Do not underestimate the week he had to squirm while awaiting his fate. That is pure reflection. I thought that JR was brilliant if that was intentional.

And that would be incredibly stupid. How would you know we will go 2-2 or better when you don't know who we are playing and whether it is home or away. We could have 3 or 4 incredibly difficult games to open the season and end up 1-3 without suggesting the season is over.

Has Gettleman ever expressed his commitment to Cam?

Did you listen to his interview. He said we can win with the folks we have now. Of course he is committed to Newton.

Not by name. But he did start off his interview saying below:

"This League revolves around the Quarterback".

"You need Quarterback, Touch Down Scorers and Big Men in this league".

And I heard him say at his press conference, that 'you need a QB in this league and we have one'.

Take it for what it's worth. But I don't think you have to worry about that (if you thought his allegiance to Cam was undeclared). Plus, doesn't he have to watch him play next year (and on tape from the previous year/s? He's got time. LOL

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
