Guess who?

No surprise of course. Note a former Panthers coach is on the list.

 

I know its too early and hopefully we pound the Bills...but do we start making changes if we go into the bye week 0-3? Or do you think Rivera rides out the season for continuity no matter what.

 

Would Shula go first if our offense remains stagnant?

 

Callers were asking this on Busting loose just before noon so yell at them if you don't like the question

I think we won't get rid of Shula before Rivera for the same reason we got the only post Bear Bryant Alabama coach to have a losing season as offensive coordinator in the first place: Gettleman is not going to retool this coaching staff. Either this one succeeds as is, or he's getting a brand new one of his choosing.

On the bright side if it does come to that I trust gettleman to build a better one than hurney did

Actually two former Panthers coaches... McCoy in San Diego and Capers in GB

 

 

We're riding the Chico bus until the end of the season at least... if he makes it past that, I'll be shocked and happy, because it means we've put it together enough to make the playoffs.

He'll get the year.  If we go 0-3 to the bye, it looks bad for him.  Minus winning 10 games after that, I'd say he's probably gone.  Moral victories are nothing at this point.

If Rivera manages to go for 0-3 and have a slow, sluggish start to a new season with a record of 13-19 before this season, he definitely needs to be shown the door. It’s the same thing every year. I don’t see why any HC that bad would be given the opportunity to end the season.

 

Also, I would be confused to why Shula would be gone before Rivera. He’s not the one holding this team back the last two seasons. If that’s the case, Shula would clearly be used as the scapegoat.

BR or not, they write up some good pieces at times. I enjoy reading them.

In thought the same then CyberJag asked me "Who becomes HC for the rest of the season?".

Shula?
Mcderms?
Jim Skipper?

Result is likely the same either way.
So let Rivera finish it out, the season is a wash either way.

Or maybe MAYBE Gettleman already has someone in mind.

 

Jerry makes some pretty interesting decisions, but I think he knows he's putting a little too much stress on his fragile customer base if he shitcans yet another season by keeping on a lame duck.
