Did anyone honestly think we would be going into another Lame Duck year after only 3 years?

I loathe a Lame Duck coaching situation. But I think the biggest difference with RR vs. JF is JF knew he wasn't coming back and he would land as a Head Coach somewhere. This is probably RRs only shot at Head Coach, so I think this will be his most motivating year! At least that it what I hope!

Rivera will get a job as a DC elsewhere if he can't be a HC here.

I think he is best suited to be a college coach, where he can focus on discipline and teaching young players. I have this feeling he will be the HC for CAL someday.

I dont think it's a lame duck sitation. I think JR is legitimately giving RR another shot. That's why he found a GM that would hang on to him. The fan base can't take another lame duck season and I don't think the players would either. They are trying to win for sure.

John Fox was also a no balls candyass who never adapted and wouldn't put the best players on the field. He can suck sh!t.

Rivera might get fired after this year if we don't have a winning record but given he still has 2 years left on his contract, he can't by definition be a lame duck coach. If the criteria for lame duck was that the coach had to win or face replacement, that would apply to most of the coaches in the league not newly hired or legends like Bellicheck .

I really would like to see Rivera gone. I wanted a rising OC or college head coach. But that's just me.........

I mean Panthers should have been 14-2, but nooooo Rivera does not know how to coach talent. I bet if Dungy had this team in his prime, they would went to the playoffs two years in a row.......well maybe not, Just can't stand Rivera...LOL

All he has to do is win. It\s pretty simple.

It sucks but it was inevitable. Too much money tied up in unproductive players. I was initially against bringing Rivera back, but after realizing we are going to be bad next year regardless of the coach I think it's smart to not force whoever our coach of the future is to start on such a bad note. Take our lumps, get the roster headed in the right direction, we will hopefully be able to give the next coach some more to work with. It sucks we are in a position where we have to think like this but hey, we've got to treat the world as it is, not as it should be.

When do you think the Panthers will have a realistic shot at having a true playoff run? Like a Nfc Championship type of playoff run? What year will that be to you?

Optimistically, maybe the 2015 season. That's if we hire the right coach next year, make above average draft choices and signings, and successfully develop most of our current young talent towards their "best case" scenarios. A lot will have to go right.
