If we go 9-7 and miss the playoffs, Rivera should NOT be fired.

Recommended Posts

Then it's settled. Rivera IS just like Belichick. Now all he has to do is go someplace else so he can start winning. :D

Could happen....especially if he has a 9-7 type year and misses the playoffs. And JR and DG simply want to get away from a Hurney guy neither was ever high on

I can read perfectly, that's any you are resorting to personal attacks because you have nothing else to say.

 

No. Not at all. It's exactly what I said. 

 

You obviously want to believe/see what you want (and how you want), despite what's presented. So I'm not going to waste my time trying to discuss it otherwise. And that's fine/no biggie. 

 

I've been very clear in what I've said, and you choose to selective  (if you read and understood everything at all), while being circular in your discussion.   It its what it is. 

 

Weren't you the guy, that totally misread/misunderstood my response to one of your post, that you [sheepishly] admitted later,  you only had read the first line of my [multi paragraph] response to you. 

 

If so (and it's you); it figures, there's precedent to ignore If it's not you; oh well, I apologize in advance. Lol

What the hell is the Head Coach supposed to do then, anyway? If they have no impact on the success of a team, we should just dump Rivera and use the money we spend on him to hire better coordinators and position coaches.

I'm not even saying we should fire him. I just think that he's a mediocre coach, but I'm still really pulling for the Panthers and I really hope that he has a great year. Still, it's silly to think that you can judge him on his performance to date and put him in the same class as the all-time greats. I'm sure people can look for potential and find it, but you can do that with nearly anything. In sum, his performance has been lacking to date.

Here's to the future though, may it be filled with success for all :)

There primary job is to game plan and it's clear that either Rivera and Chud didn't see eye to eye or that Rivera's game plans didn't work... Either way, not expecting hardships from a coach that was in his first two years as an NFL head coach is ludicrous.

I'm also not convinced that he is a good coach, but I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt because at times he has shown that he can be a solid coach.

I get it.

Lol is this because you could find the quotes from Rivera or the fact that I called you out for speculating that Rivera didn't talk to Chud?

But then again, your "evidence" tells you he didn't...

Right?

You also failed to mention that he would have had to promote Dorsey to QB coach and then find a new scout to replace Dorsey... That's just too much to go through.

Lol really? You're gonna resort to that argument? Oh and the Panthers had to find a replacement for the Assistant Special Teams Coach last year when they promoted him to Special Teams Coach, how ever did we survive?!? Tell me what a QB Coach's job duties are that are of the utmost importance that Shula couldn't have still helped Cam with himself...since you seem to know everything about everything. And why would bringing in a new guy as a QB coach severely handicap Cam when his original QB coach is still on the team...the new QB coach isn't installing his own playbook...he's not gonna be contradicting things that Shula taught him as his original QB coach, and if he is, then Shula's right there to clear it up.

Not at all. 

 

I've already provided those quotes on the Huddle before. 

 

As I said, they were from an Albert Breer article on NFL.com. earlier this year. I'm well aware of them.  

 

Quite frankly, I don't think you're credible and logical enough to argue with anymore. You've shown that you will ignore all common sense, facts and logic, to hang on to your own point, and ignore and not concede anything. Here's one of the reasons why:

 

I've stated many times, 'that it doesn't matter, what Rivera may have or not said to Chud (that's your argument, not mine or the rest of the worlds)'. The fact is; Rivera admitted, that he was in on Chud's Offensive changes before the season started, wasn't directly involved enough in managing the team/coordinators, and took notice/made changes with [mainly after] the firing of the GM. There's nothing else to say. Doesn't matter what Rivera may or my not have done, behind the scenes (as your alluding to). The evidence, available facts, and events, suggest otherwise, or [at the least] his initial culpability, mistakes. 

 

And once again, weren't you the guy, that misread my response to your post, and belatedly admitted you had only read one line, of my multi-paragraph response, as an excuse cause you totally misreading/understand what I wrote?

They didn't hire a special teams assistant to replace Rogers until the offseason, so you would be wrong there...

And what do you mean really? You are having to promote/hire three people. You're underestimating how continuity and consistency affect Cam. You're acting like that Cam would be able to adjust mid season to two changes that directly affect him...

The OC is in charge of play calling and helping Rivera game plan for the next game, there is no way that Shula could have still run positional drills at practice and chart down practice information every single day while also meeting with Rivera every day to devise a game plan for for Sunday.

Gimme a break... another person that hasn't coached pretending like he knows it all.

Not that it matters; you will respond to anything else I said, or admit it was you the other day, doing what you're doing now. As I said, I'm done with you.  But here's the quote and link:

 

 

 

Rivera and his staff, for their part, adjusted as well. The second-year coach is willing to concede that Hurney's dismissal put everyone on notice -- "That kinda put it out there how it was gonna be, and now people here look at it and say, 'If things go wrong, if it can happen to Marty, it can happen to anyone,' " he said -- and helped ratchet up the urgency.

The coaches spent much of the summer trying to diversify their option package, in an effort to stay a step ahead. However, after that rough start, they decided to revert to what they'd done well in 2011 in those looks, which helped Newton play faster. By taking some things off of Newton's plate, offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and quarterbacks coach Mike Shula could focus on quickening Newton's decision-making and refining his footwork. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000109812/article/cam-newton-simply-misunderstood-panthers-coach-says

 

Nothing else needs to be said. 

 

Rivera was CLEARY aware/involved with Chud's offensive changes for the upcoming season, and took great notice when Hurney was fired, and responded accordingly. 

 

What else do you want. Someone to write it on your forehead?

 

PS: Notice, it was also in this article, where Rivera addressed, lessening the read option decision making for Cam (and going back to what he was doing well in 2011), which was totally misquoted by so many who disliked, and even liked Cam. SMH/LOL

Thanks for the quote...

But I don't see where Rivera said he was in on Chuds decision to abandon the run... (the entire reason I'm having this conversation with you is because of Williams' comments about them planning to run the ball but not ever doing it).

In fact I see a part in the article that says the coaches tried to diversify the read option. While that wasn't a great idea, it does show that they did plan to run the ball...

The only thing that I get out of this article is the fact that Chud and Rivera and possibly even Shula were responsible for the read option debacle...

This doesn't explain why Williams got less than eight carries per game.

Was Chud so inept that he couldn't adapt and call a simple draw play (when he saw that the read option wasn't working) instead of throwing the ball on fourth and two?

I sure hope not.

if we go 9-7 chances are 2 of those losses are purely from dumbass decisions that rivera makes. it will take a few years of success (playoffs) for me to consider rivera anything but an idiot.
