The only way Rivera gets fired

Ron came out like he was pissed off for the first time ever.  We could be a very tough team if we have that mindset every game, but i would be a sucker to assume or expect we will at this point in life.

Steve Smith said on FNZ today that if you think RR's demeanor on the sidelines is not confrontational enough with players who screw up (weren't his exact words, but that's the gist of it), think again.  He doesn't buy into singling out guys in front of everyone on the sideline in game, but in the locker room, he can be a very different person when need be.  Smith said RR's done plenty of "dog cussing" when deserved.  FWIW.

I dont see why people dont think the momentum will carry over to 2 weeks from and will only last until next week. That doesnt make sense

I still feel this game was an anomaly. We've had a few of these before in the Rivera era and I think we'll be back to business as usual in two weeks (playing down to the level of the competition and making costly mistakes late in games).

 

I don't dislike Rivera, he seems sincere and hardworking but as a fan I want results. If this is a turning point for Rivera and the Panthers, great, but I'm highly skeptical.

 

Even in this game we had the muffed punt return and Cam's INT. I don't want to sound too harsh in a 38-0 win, but the defense also absolutely dominated Seattle early and the team let the game stay close and manageable. They did the same for much of the first half against the Giants. Luckily they had a TD called back and missed a FG.

 

This team just doesn't play tough or with a since of purpose. Nobody is perfect and you're not going to capitalize on exceptional defensive performances every time, but this team is the opposite, they always open the door for their opponents to come back.

 

It's disgusting to watch most weeks.

 

 

Int's happen no one is immune. Rodgers, Brees, Brady all had interceptions on sunday. As long as Cam's tds to int ratios stays high like sunday 3 to 1 and the panthers win the game then it's not that important.

I think how we look after the bye will say a lot about where Rivera is as a coach.

People here just can't be content and happy in the moment.  They are so afraid that if they believe they will be disappointed down the road and be seen as gullible or a  homer.  Instead they take a contrarian approach to protect their fragile egos. Others like you and I simply enjoy the moment and revel in the present.  If we suck down the road, so be it.  Until then I will be happy for yesterday and  remain optimistic until given reason not to.

As far as I'm concerned Rivera's job should be on the line until the panthers are 2-3 games above .500.

Absolutely. I just meant in the short term. Yeah, this win was great, but I think it's just a blip on the radar, sadly.

I was wanting Rivera gone yesteryear.  After those two losses to start the season this year, I was fired up at the thought of being able to go ahead and get rid of him during the bye week.  Yet after that shalacking on the Giants, Rivera has made me a believer.  I still think he needs to improve on his knowledge of our offensive game, but man, he has built an elite defense here already.  This is the kind of defense that will allow you to win every game you play.  Once our offense truly hits it's stride, man!

Wouldn't surprise me to see them lay an egg in Arizona in two weeks.

It was a great performance and certainly justifies exuberance among the Panther faithful.

That said, blowout wins and losses don't always tell you a lot about the team. One team happened to play their best on the same day their opponent played their worst. That doesn't often happen in the NFL.

We should all savor the moment, but keep in mind that we haven't arrived yet. There are going to be more ups and downs in the weeks ahead.

But 1 and 2 at least gives us hope. 0 and 3 would have been a tough pill to swallow.

Something clicked and at least this team knows how to win big. Just need to not revert back to old habits.
