That one play could have changed our entire season. I truly believe that.


As do I.

I'm still pissed.

One of Ron Rivera's worst moments of many this year.

In fairness, the Panthers were surprisingly less successful during 4th downs in 2012 than compared to 3rd down. Nonetheless, Barnwell, kinda cobbled the numbers together to make his argument stronger by including 3rd dwn conversions that the Panthers were very successful at. He didn't have to. You play to win, not to lose. You don't have to make apologies or skew the numbers for that (unless your team is just plain bad at 4th down conversions). It was still a bad decision by Rivera. It was only inches.

I actually thought the article was going to be about the "Worst Coach" In The NFL. And I wouldn't have been surprised if I saw Ron Rivera on or leading that list. LOL.

Pretty sure Chud called the play... Although Rivera should've stepped up and said "Chud you're going full retard" I still blame Ol' Chud

Rivera could have stayed at home and it wouid have been less damaging to his team's chances of victory.

Chud doesn't make the call to punt. That's all on the Head Coach. Had Ron decided to go for it, it would have then been up to Chud to decide what play to run.

Surprise, Surprise another Grantland article bashing the Panthers. The worst coaching decision this year was John Fox deciding to stay conservative (in a playoff game) and run the ball on 3rd and 7 to ice the game against the Ravens. You've got Peyton Manning as your QB and you run the ball to ice the game?!?!? Everyone knew it was coming, it's John fugn Fox.

Bill Barnwell is a fat looking assclown why anyone posts his poo is beyond me.
