FWIW there is some significant truth to that

Not to take away from Harbaugh being a great coach

when you consider how many close games we lost, we do have enough talent to win

We all have had expectations. As we should.

But I feel a lot of you expect a rookie hc to learn everything there is to learn about head coaching in a single season.

20 games a year, and that includes playoffs.

That doesn't seem like a lot of games that would cover tons of instances for a coach to learn from.

He admitted that not having a coach with head coaching experience hurt.

As pissed as I've been at him at points during this last season, I do know he's a heck of a coach that the players love.

He will continue to grow, as all coaches do.

I'm personally excited about next season. Guess that's cause I've put the past behind me already.

I just wish the off season wasn't so long.

we had the lead in most of those games. we had them won until we did dumb things to give them away.

the talent is there. the ability to finish hasn't been. that's on coaches and players, but mainly coaches. it's up to them to prepare players for those situations and then put forth a plan that will keep the team out in front on the scoreboard.

coaches that can win, do win.

those that can't make excuses.

until he's a proven winner, he's not.

Players that can win, do win.

Saying we have the talent to win is absurd to me......nobody believes that do they?

We have pieces. We have a weak OL, one aging receiver and no secondary. You cant win with those things. That is why Gettleman or however you spell it was brought in.

I have never been sold on Rivera but there are too many other issues to blame everything on him. He will get another year and we will find out. I for one will wish him success and not harp on every single word he says like it will make a difference one way or the other.

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.
