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
