this fanbase should be about tired of losing..  any optimism should only show up when the team earns it.

I understand everyone wants to blame Rivera.  My question to you is this:  what do you REALISTICALLY expect him to say at a presser?   

I suck as a coach and deserve to be fired?

I made the wrong choice with offensive coordinator?


C`mon, that type of response will never happen and shouldn't but many of you are critical because I think you legitimately expect him to resign after Week 1.



EDIT:  My response to answer my own question would be to be direct and honest. We made mistakes that were critical in both coaching and execution.  We know where we need to improve and will work on it until it's fixed.  Offense needs to be more aggressive.  Play smarter on special teams.  Football is a team game, this was a team loss.  Not blamed on any 1 individual.  We will have a better plan in place for Buffalo and are moving on from this after learning from our mistakes.

I expect him to have a sense of urgency to win, every fuging presser is him rambling about how close we are as a team finishing games. Ron is all talk and no walk, just like Singletary as a head coach.

I think that is a reasonable response and definetly agree with you about the sense of urgency.  I am neither Pro or Anti Rivera.  I saw many bright spots yesterday and also many mind blowing, head scratching, maddening mistakes.  I haven't given up on him yet though.

Funny how motivated this team was when Ron was actually motivated as a coach to win the last four games to keep his fuging job. We are a reflection of his leadership and a motivator as a coach.

for starters, something with this spirit and attitude:

http://www.panthers.com/media-vault/videos/DeAngelo_Williams_Accepts_responsibility/73eb85db-e993-4b3b-87ec-7d01e2b79234

 

own your mistakes.

 

 

"i want to apologize to my team and our fans and those who bought tickets expecting to see the panthers at their best. i didn't have my team prepared enough. my staff and i didn't have the best plan going into the game and we didn't do well enough at adapting to what our opponents were doing. we weren't aggressive enough on offense and we didn't score enough points and we didn't get the win. i take full responsibility for what my team did today. losing is unacceptable and inexcusable and there is no excuse for us not getting better next week."

 

that is what i would like to see from rivera. instead all we get is what i posted earlier.
