If you have watched all 34 Rivera has coached....he isn't a NFL HC sadly.

Dang good DC. Very bad HC. I have been a huge Ton supporter bc I wanted him to turn a corner but he doesn't have it.

He is a good X's and O's guy and knows technically what you "should" call in a given scenario. Good coaches know you don't always follow the textbook

 

agree w/ this

 

I've tried to convince myself that Chico can be a successful NFL coach man but it just ain't gonna happen. At least not here in Charlotte.

Yeah I couldn't tell if he was trolling or being serious?

 

Cam's had his ups/downs here so far but I certainly feel that the team hasn't put #1 in the best situation to be successful.

i don't see how anyone could possibly have watched the past two seasons of panthers football capped by sunday's last-second debacle and not realize that coaching absolutely 100% IS the problem

who's job is it to come up with a game plan their players can win with?

who's job is it to make sure the players are capable of carrying out that gameplan?

who's job is it to make adjustments during the game when their plan isn't working out right?

who's job is it to prepare the players to handle clutch situations?

who's job is it to make sure that their players are in the right position to win?

who's job is it to make sure their players play disciplined football and avoid dumb mistakes?

who's job is it to look at game tape afterward, find out what works and didn't work...including decisions they made...and then change what they do?

who's job is it to look at what their players are failing to execute and make sure that they do better the next week or formulate a game plan that their player can execute?

who's job is it to make sure that they can win with the guys they have on the team?

 

Rayzor I am completely on the same wavelength.  Watching our first two games again something astounding jumped out at me.  We played fairly terrible in both games offensively, yet both games were still very winnable.  How is it that we can look at those performances, and know they're not even close to the output we can reach and still be in a position to win the games.  It's certainly not a talent issue.  How could a team with talent problems play poorly and still be in the game?  Obviously our defense is talented enough to play against any offense in the league.  The offense should be capable of imposing it's will against the best D's as well, hell they practice against one of the best.  The answer, coaching, or lack thereof, our coaching staff is getting the absolute minimum out of our talent.

While I too believe that it is definitely time to make a move away from Rivera, it is far from entirely his fault. 

 

2-14 in one score games is a daunting stat...and is an indictment against Rivera.  However, one could also make a case that it is an even bigger indictment against the players.  Rivera put the team in a position to win time and time again late in the game....to only see the execution and play on the field not deliver.

 

Take this Sunday for instance......

 

The defense handed the offense the ball inside Buffalo's 30 yard line twice, and all the offense could deliver was 2 FG's.  One drives stat line was.....7 plays for 7 yards and a FG.  That is pathetic and is as much (probably more) the fault of the offense (and yes Cam too) as it is the coaching staff's.

 

We crucify the coaching staff (rightfully so) while continuing to make excuses for Cam and the offense.

So its Cam and the offenses fault that they werent smart enough to know that Byron Bell couldnt block a blow up doll? Who gave him the starting position? Did they change the offense to this ineffective crap that we are seeing now? These issues that we see from the beginning of the game till the end not just certain situations.

Cam wasn't calling the plays, he never forced Rivera to run the ball six times in a row. Please, save it.
