ALL IN


Best Answer ladypanther, 17 September 2013 - 06:09 PM

So...2 games...2 heartbreaking losses.  We all know the Panthers could be 2-0.  I blamed the first game more on player mistakes.  The 2nd game, IMO is all on RR.

 

Several years ago I was one of the first to believe Foxy was the problem with his playing not to lose approach (and I took a lot of grief for that) [Foxy lost a playoff game last year with the Broncos with that approach...made me smile.] I was among those who believed that Rivera should be replaced after last year.  Since he was not, and we have a new GM who is a football guy,  I was behind him 100%.  No one wanted Ron to succeed more than me.  I really hoped he had evolved as a coach and was among those that Gettlemen was going to help be better. Ron certainly said all the right things and seemed humble. He also seems like a quality human being. I wanted this to be his year.

 

I do not care that RR is stoic on the sidelines. What I care about is his decision making.  The Buffalo game magnified the fact that nothing has changed. 

 

Ron has one more game. I am ready to give up on him but circumstances dictate 1 more chance.  If he has any ability to adjust it has to happen now.  The Giants are a desperate team, known for slow starts and somehow pulling it together.  Rivera's team needs to play to win for 4 quarters.  Period. Otherwise, IMO the Panthers need to move on. 

 

Gettlemen has 1 film study to make a head coach out of Ron.  

 

Let's go....no fear.  Leave nothing on the field. Play the damn game to win.

A WHOLE PIE!

I have recently been inspired by 2 players....Jake and Smitty.  Nice duo, eh?

 

If you have not read the recent thread on Jake or the one today on the Smitty interview you should...and give pie to the OP's.

 

Jake....he was all about heart...he contributed so much to this team.  Smitty...so much heart too, and he had to mature...he seems to have accomplished that.

 

Smitty is an expert on this team....liked what he had to say.

 

So....my mantra for this year is ALL IN.

 

Smitty seems to believe....good enough for me.  He has not taken out an ad, but it sounds like he believes.

 

I think this team will surprise some people.

 

I will be at as many home games as possible.

 

Even though I have been critical in the past.....I hope Rivera is our coach for a long time.

 

I hope Shula has found his time and place.

 

The Boston Boss seems to be our man.

 

In other words...I am ALL IN. Be there or ....why are you here?

I'm expecting no less than a playoff win.  No reason we can't do it but I've been with this team since day one and you also have to prepare to be let down.

Yeah I usually only fly out to one game a year. But this year ill be doing the Minnesota game for sure, checking out the worlds largest homeless shelter December 8th and possibly one other depending on how the seasons going.

I was one of those screaming for rivera's head last year but after watching a lot of his interviews and seeing how he interacts with the players I think he's a good fit for this team. He needs to make better decisions though and work on his clock management. He seems like a good guy and these guys don't want to be the reason why he loses his job.

Realistically I see us around 8-8, possibly 9-7. The fan in me see's us going 10-6. But I feel good about the direction we are heading. I think we may still be a piece or two away from seriously contending.

IMO week 1 against Seattle is a huge game. It's just one game but it's important for this group to start off fast and carry momentum throughout the year. They need to start off the season with a win so that they don't start thinking 'here we go again'.

9-7.....is a fear projection, but I understand.  I believe we will be better than that.

It's a reasonable projection.  Not fear, because we have to temper our expectations for this team.  Four winning seasons will do that to you.

things seem different this year, but i can't go all in yet. i need to see it in real games. the buggest concerns I've had were with rivera and shula and their in game management and decision making. I've got to see it to believe it. i need to see the changes in live action when it really matters to be all in.
