We need a rebrand to erase this losing culture. Hornets is available.

ULTIMATE cheapo move by JR. Dude is too cheap to fire Rivera and hire someone else...but also too cheap to give Rivera the best coordinators so he can succeed. Wow.

Shula is probably the best bet for Rivera to succeed on a one year time frame.

Once the decision was made to keep Rivera (which I think was the right call) would it make sense to offer anything other than a 1 year contract?

I think the funniest thing will be to see if Rivera strings out a playoff birth, keeps his job, and gets an extension. I think there's a big chunk of people who will have a hard to virtually impossible time convincing themselves Ron is good even if the team starts winning more and gets into the playoffs.

This will be an interesting season to say the least.

I take back everything I said about us keeping Rivera cause JR was afraid of eating 2 years of Ron's contract and that JR went with Shula cause he'd be easy to boot next year.

I was wrong, wrong, wrong.

don't offer up any logic or common sense. Panther fans don't care.

I'm not surprised by that...everyone knows Rivera is in a make or break year. The fact that no one wanted to come and rot in Carolina for one year is pretty self-explanatory. Hell we could see some of the same names surface next year when (but hopefully if) the entire coaching staff gets replaced.

...Riv is really handicapped at being able to get descent coaches...the odds are really stacked against him....

This is precisely why these ultimatum years are a bad idea. Nobody thinks you have a chance, except for the existing staff that has their own asses in the sling. So, we end up get what's left after Chud picked over this staff and we are supposed to make the playoffs with whats left. Perhaps 9-7 isn't too far fetched, not that it will be enough to save his job.

agreed.

i can understand giving him another year to prove himself, but it really makes a bad situation worse or at least more difficult.

it can pay off, but the odds, which were stacked in your favor, are much greater. there is no room for error at all. people without any options hang on for dear life while those with options understandably bail not wanting to go down with what is very likely a sinking ship.

It certainly tells you how much ownership believes in Ron Rivera.
