Everyone is talking nice right now but you know Gettlemen want his own staff. This is an evaluation year for this team.


Evaluate the team from last years tape.
Make a decison and pull the damned trigger.

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.


Jackson and Shurmur indicated they were ready to take 1 year deals from the Panthers?

Now when Browns and Raiders fans diss us we have no retort...

JR runs a pathetic organization, such a joke. One that has long since run dry.

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 think when Rivera starts winning games that matter those people myself included will be convinced he is good. At this point he has won a few more games then our worst coach in history.

I feel the same way. Not high enough expectations are set for this team.

This is what Gettlemen is supposed to be best at. Evaluate talent, and make decisions. Hopefully we have a guy that knows how get it right. Would be nice to be on the right track again.

Expectations were pretty high at the start of the year. Most of the frustration round here stems from those expectations not being met.

Going to be interesting to see the mood of this place after Gettlemen has made a few decisions on players.

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?


Maybe some Free Bojangles?
