I will never forgive Ron Rivera for two things.

I'll forgive him for everything if we win the Super Bowl. Heck, if he slept with my wife I would forgive him if we win the Super Bowl (although I would settle for free season tickets. Actually I would settle for free tickets to one game)

So what was Coughlins excuse last season? I'll take my answer off the air thanks..

 

He had an average year, which for him is only 9 wins.  I think that Giants fans forgive him though, as he's been to the playoffs 5 times there and won two Super Bowls.

IMO, you would be hard pressed to find many Panther fans that truly believe Rivera is a great coach at this time.

However, there are plenty of us who do believe he is getting better. This team played well at the end of the year. It played damm good football. On every level. And we are even better this year.

He took a team that was bereft of talent, and has made it into a team that many believe is ready to challenge the rest of the league. That is all that really matters. Where we are now. Not what we were, but where we are going.

I don't think any of you will complain if we have a great year. But I do know a poo ton of you will complain if we don't. Expectations are high for a reason. Like it or not. We just may be as good as we all believe we are.

Some will harp and complain no matter what. But hey, this is the interwebz. You have to take the good with the ridiculous. Us optimists are ready for the good times. The rest of you will miss out waiting for the perfect storm. Fans, you gotta love em'.

All that talent from a 1-15 team?  Rivera actually inherited more pro-bowlers.  If you're arguing for Rivera over Fox, you should try and avoid comparing their first two years and maybe focus on how much info they give out in pressers. :)

 

 

Actually, I thought of that when I posted it, knowing that someone would pick up on that.   But we lacked a qb and a dependable rb--look at the young talent he had:

 

Steve Smith

Julius Peppers

Mike Minter

Ken Rucker

Dan Morgan

Brenson Buckner

John Kasay

Mark Fields

Will WItherspoon

Brad Hoover

Mushin Muhammad

Deon Grant

 

Add a few free agents like Stephen Davis, Ricky Proehl, and Jake Delhomme--not high end talent at that time--and draft picks Jordan Gross and Ricky Manning Jr etc. and the rest is history.

He means Mike Rucker.  And he forgot Kris Jenkins.

 

Peppers was a rookie, FWIW.  And how many of those guys had made the pro bowl before Fox got here?

 

Contrast that with Beason, Gross, a Veteran Smith, LaFell (who's stats are identical to Moose's), Kalil, Gamble, Williams, Stewart, Johnson, Hardy, etc...

 

Bottom line is, neither coach had a bare cupboard to work with.  Fox just did more with his early.

Actually I would take the 2003 team over the 2012 team without a doubt. Newton may end up being a much better talent but Jake in 2003 was magic. The whole defense was better than the 2012 defense across the board with the exception of Luke. Special teams with Smitty and Kasay and Sauerbrun versus Gano Adams and Norman no comparison. Do you really want to stack up Smith Moose and Proehl and say Smiity now and LaFell and whoever else were even close? You could make a case the running game was about the same. The roided up offensive line in 2003 was much better than the patchwork line of 2012. You could argue that the DEs were equal but the DTs were not and give the TE nod to Olsen. But Fox had a lot more talent than Rivera did in year 2 and Fox didnt have the injuries. No you would have to say that Fox in year 2 had more talent than Rivera did in year 2.
