chud and norv both chose to go to cleveland instead of being here.

not sure how that's them taking our rejects.


To be fair though, Chud's choice to leave was a promotion.

Yeah, even though I wanted Chud canned, it probably would not have happened. I still don't see it as a rejection of the Panthers as much as accepting a promotion. Who in their right mind would turn down a promotion based on a really sh!tty recent history.

agreed. but as it stands, they aren't taking our rejects. they are taking people who chose cleveland over us.

were we happy chud left? maybe, we'll see how mike "plan 'c'" shula does.

were we happy we missed out on turner? nope.

Chud and Norv have been talking and planning that all season that's why the offense sputtered until the plan was worked out.

I don't believe for one second chud didn't know he had a hc job lined up.


Would also explain Anderson's comment about going back.

lol i'm only saying that because someone said they were taking our rejects. you can't reject someone who is leaving on their own for a better situation.

doesn't matter.

he left on his own. he wasn't asked to. they weren't planning on it. they weren't expecting it. they were caught completely off gaurd.

the sad truth is, we didn't reject him. he rejected us and norv did as well.

naivety

Rivera again a step slower and behind, just like on Sundays.

i wish he would make decisions as fast and as decisively as he talked yesterday.

seemed like a totally different guy than had been here these last two years.

lol, might be just the refuse to believe in coincidences or you might be right. Sad thing is we will never know.

When will Rivera ever learn?? He just bragged on the radio yesterday, that he learned to stop being passive after the 8th game.


Then why was he so conservative when it came time to go for it on fourth and one in the tenth game?

All this constant negativity has the Huddle falling down my lists of place to visit. If I wanted to hate the Panthers I couldn't do better than hanging around here.

I'll see you all in the preseason.

Man, you guys are really something. Did it ever occur to you that by the time Rivera knew he needed an OC, Norv, Chud had already offered him the job? How was Rivera supposed to get Norv when he basically already had a job?

Being disgruntled doesn't necessarily mean you need to go off your rocker with these sad scenarios. Something displeases you, blame Rivera. OK, why not?

Yeah, I didn't mean for this thread to devolve into a Rivera bashfest. I was pissed when the Shula promotion was first announced, but I've come to terms with it. My point in posting this thread was that it feels like Chud sort of back channeled Norv before he had even gotten a second interview (hell, the minute he was requested to interview for the first time, he may have called Norv and asked him to be his OC in case he gets the job). Obviously, that left us out in the cold with the best possible replacement for Chud going to work for Chud instead.

Anyway, our coaching staff is in place for at least this season, and it doesn't really do any good to be all doom and gloom about them. If they don't perform, they'll be out, but at this point, there's nothing we can do.
