panthers were offering coaching candidates 1 year deals...

I don't think JR is a cheap owner, he is just cheap...at first but his spending isn't an issue to me. I also think keeping Rivera was the wrong move for this very reason. Gettleman wants his own coaching staff. But the simple reason I can't stand JR is he fails to put the right poeple in place and is now failing at letting Gettleman do his job properly. JR is a meddling owner, maybe not as outright as some but I find it extremeley hard to believe Gettleman wants Rivera and co. as his coaching staff. Why give them another year? Too see if he can do it? To keep stability, stability in what exactly? How is offering one year contracts to work with Rivera and hiring within out of no choice a sign of stability? I understand the one year contracts totally, it would be stupid to give a coach a longer contract when this is a make or break year for Rivera and the FO not having any faith in him. My thing is I think I have seen all I need to of Rivera, and I feel the norm of this FO holding on too long will once again take place. JR is failing at putting this team in a position to win.

JR's decision to keep Rivera hampered our chances of getting a good OC. That's the whole point and yes I agree that this organization is pathetic. Keeping Rivera only made our situation worse.

I don't see why it makes JR cheap for not throwing out 3 year deals to people that may not be here after one year.

JR, once again, is hedging his bets rather than going all in to win.

Wonder why we keep getting coaches that punt with two minutes left to go down by 6? Cause that's what their owner wants.

Maybe we'll finally have a playoff caliber team by the time Cam's 35

It doesn't. Given the situation, it's not that shocking.

Worth remembering that both Hue Jackson and Pat Shurmur were willing to take those offers.

Toub? Don't think we had a realistic shot at him. Reid was a bigger draw.

The only guy I wonder about really being bothered by it is Bobby April.

lol welcome to another throw away season panther fans.

next year we'll hear the rebuilding excuse, followed by the "rome wasnt built in a day" excuse.

this organization is laughable. Rivera should have been fired or committed to. not some ridiculous half attempt to do something.

I love how well Richardson strategically purchases excuses. Heck, the man is even wise enough for invest in excuses for future seasons. Imagine if he put that same effort into building a winning program.

I'm not ready to buy the "throwaway season" notion without seeing how the roster gets tweaked first.

The notion that Jerry Richardson doesn't care about winning is one of the silliest ideas that gets batted around on this board. Anyone that works with him would tell you that.

I have zero questions about his desire to produce a winning team. I have several when it comes to whether he really knows how.

LOL, wish I could be a fly on the wall in those interviews...

JR: So, what are your plans for 2014? Your expectations?

Candidate: You mean 2013, well, I -

JR: No son, I said 2014.

Candidate: 2013?

JR: SON, I SAYID TWO-THOUSAND, FOURTEEEEEEEN. Do you need a graphical representation?

Candidate: Umm, no sir. But, what about 2013?

JR: What about it? I ain't got no 2013 on my calendar here. Do you?

Candidate: I don't understand.

JR: Betcha like black helmets and redesigned jerseys too. You willing to work on an internship basis?

Candidate: Absolutely not sir, I'm highly qualified for this job and I -

JR: NEXT! (screamed into Bojangles microphone)
