Panthers Hire Al Holcomb as LB Coach

49 posts in this topic

Yep, kinda surprised the OLine coach kept his job I guess it's just because he was working with scrubs because of injuries

Oline did a great job toward the end of the season with what he had to work with. Also the line seemed to improve after we stop running the option every two seconds.

Sounds like if Rivera fails, we have a new dc.

No way. This guy needs much more experience before he would be ready for DC for an NFL team.

The short story is that he has never been a position coach.

He spent 4 years as the Defensive QC Coach.

Breaking down film and running the practice squad.

He's got a 10 y/o son that thinks that you should play cover 2 against the Falcons.

he's been a position coach and DC at lower levels. Maybe you needed the longer story.

I get that it's not a sexy name, but like was already said earlier - guys that work their butts off to get ahead, not the worst thing in the world. I'm sure being a third tier assistant for the Giants isn't the sexiest thing in the world, but consider that the same tier of coach from Carolina received four promotions (two here, two with the Browns).

Is the only remaining position left to fill the OQC?

there were two assistants there, so hopefully they fill both. There's also Babich's job, and ST assistant, hopefully.

I still dont know why we fired out LB coach

Because somebody had to be fired (shrugs)... Wonder if we interviewed Sammy Mills III for the LB job he's the DLine assistant coach

this is a great hire

especially when around this time next year, when rivera's fired and gettleman's filling the coaching staff, he'll already have a linebackers coach to start off

    • With rivera thinking defense would win mentality..they thought Cam would be enough him and Smitty and double trouble...didn't work that way..this is a passing league and you have to adjust..front 7 is nice but if the team is getting ball out quick it negates it.Our offense in the SB was slow and line not good on the right side..After loosing Smity we had no true threat...Benjamin is good but is slow. Ginn and Brown weak and small..they are no smity ..If Steve were here we would have had a 2015 SB. Imagine Smitty in Browns place during SB...the organization took a turn for worst on offense should have gotten a  replacement benji was not it or was not enough.
    • So you answer a question with a question? Have no opinion?  Scared to guess?
    • correct. herbert spencer's concept (falsely attributed to darwin) was used heavily throughout the late 19th century to add a scientific justification for things like child labor and opposing evils such as regulations. some people were meant to be poor! it is a sure sign someone has no empathy and shouldn't be a viable voice in putting together a society that works for everyone because it is inherently anti-social.
