You wanted a villian? You got one. The entire Panther Nation.

Yes, several.

The majority of our fanbase is anywhere but the stadium on gameday. It's hard to get tickets when the PSL owners price gouge and sell them all to fans of the opposing team.

idk if that's all he needs to work on, but it's certainly what he needs to work on the most.

It may turn out when it's all said and done that Rivera is a really good coach... just not a good HEAD coach.


My only point was if he hire a rookie head coach to turn around what was the worst team in the league you should give him a little time to learn. Third year is his year and our year!

Guy has done a few things well. He's had a good eye for talent, hasn't been overly partial to anybody, and has developed young players well.

 

Where he has failed is in his preparation and management. The team has started both seasons slow and flat under his watch. they start games the same way pretty regularly. He's made a number of coaching decision blunders that have cost us, and there have been some serious questions about his gameplan preperation while he's been here (though, if you wanted to, you could defend that.)

 

 

Make or break, Ron.

For Rivera the rating should be should be qualified with 'insufficient information'. This season will tell.

If you think that Ron deserves to be rated higher then you didn't watch very many games the past few years. Ron is a really nice guy but I still think that coaching is the biggest problem with this team.

Ron is going to have to go a long way to proving he isn't just a poor man's Denny Green, which is all he has amounted to at this point

I think one issue that could be fixed this year was how long it takes to get the plays in and called in the huddle.  Every snap it appeared Cam was struggling to get it off in time.  With Chud gone and the offense streamlined, our offense should appear more organized. One of the worst examples of poor coaching is bad time management, which the Panthers were practically known for over the last 2 seasons

This ranking is self inflicted, the only way it changes is for Rivera to get better at game management.

I hope Panther Nation is ready to keep any of these haters and ESPN from jumping on the bandwagon when Cam takes over the league. You wanted a villian? You got one. The entire Panther Nation.

Ron Rivera is arguably the best defensive coach in the entire NFL. Entering year three he has our defense in position to be dominant, just like his third year everywhere else he has coached. With two years experience as a HC he can now adjust and learn from his mistakes with game management and play calling.

Cam Newton is also entering his third season and I expect him to dominate and show a more complete, consistent package. Our team is healthy for the first time under Rivera. Getting a healthy Beason and Kalil is like adding two FA who are All-Pro and in their prime. What other team added that this offseason? Not to mention Star was the steal of the draft and has the makings of an All-Pro DT.

And personally I am really rooting for Ron to succeed here. He is very genuine and seems to be a man of exceptional character. Most people around here have some sort of witch hunt going on and want him fired. I hope he is the HC in Carolina for 20+ years because it means we have a stadium full of Lombardi trophies and an all-time great HC/QB.

sweet dreams

Let's just hope, if/when Rivera gets an early lead, he won't call off the dogs; usually allowing the opposition to "come back from behind", when the Panthers looked to win in a walk.
