lol at you calling them educated and wondering if it can ever be "rebuilt" or that it needs to be.

seems you give that BS as much credence as your "educated" people.

i don't think it was a consideration.

what i'm wondering is how much rivera thought it should be since he found it disheartening that no minorities were hired for HC jobs. if he thought it was a big enough deal then maybe he should have hired hue to be his OC, unless OC doesn't count. guy was certainly qualified enough.


It is ironic, isn't it?

Personally, I find it disheartening that Rivera is still our head coach.

Not sure if he meant the color of his skin or the fact he is a 6'6" 250 lb monster.

I don't get it...Rivera thinks we need to look at color when it comes to coaches but not to look at color when it comes to quarterbacks?

To be fair, Newton has indeed given people some ammo to use against him. He has displayed some immaturity, both in college and in his rookie season. Even his Panther teammates, and Newton himself, would testify to that. But then immaturity's not exactly something that any one race has a monopoly on, is it?

Now, as far as building a more positive image, I'd say he's made quite a bit of progress on that front. Enough that I'm satisfied, for certain. Mind you, there will always be some who never let anyone grow past the mistakes of their youth, and of course rival fans will rag on him for past mistakes forever (so what?)

Bottom Line: My hope is to see him continue the trend of improvement on field next year. I doubt he'll ever be one of those guys who always say the right thing to the media (he has a DavidCarr-ish propensity toward saying things that can be taken the wrong way) but the whole "face of the franchise" thing is secondary. What he does on the field comes first.

Another BB uninformative post, what a surprise.
