One win does not erase all the frustration he's caused me on Sundays.

Jesus don't tell the huddle that.

he doesn't do it for the money.
His financial situation has nothing to do with hiw he coaches/does his job.

I know that's probably alien to you.


I hope that's sarcasm, but I'm not sure. Unless you are financially independent, then you're like every other swinging dick on this forum, and are in fact highly motivated by money. I bet if JR had offered him lifetime chicken, biscuits, and sweet tea, he'd have told him to go fug himself.

Rivera is a lousy game manager and fails to make in-game adjustments, but Carroll has those similar intangibles. The difference between the two, however, is that Pete is a risk taker (all or nothing) when the game is on the line.

 

Carroll, has no problem piling on the score as well. 

 

Rivera on the contrary, feels any 3-13 pt lead (no matter how early in the game) is worth sitting on, and running the clock out.  This is despite the fact, he's an awful game manager. 

 

It's not just Rivera's lack of 4th & 1 calls that's frustrating either. It's his offensive play calling and settling for small leads, which bring on too many 4th and 1 situations (and anemic offense), in the first place.

Kind of like every time a HC is fired.

Its a great win and im optimostic about this team this season, but those who claim ron has turned the corner may be jumpimg the gun.

Dont get me wrong he did a great job last sunday, but im not convinced ron has turned that corner until we start winning close games and managing those close games well on a consistant basis.

 

Bingo!!

 

How many times, Panthers fans (though not me), thought Ronnie "turned the corner" the past several seasons??   :phew:

 

Me personally; I would not invite him back under any circumstances, barring a  Super Bowl appearance. I just don't feel he's an NFL level HC. And even if the team made the playoffs, I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't make it again the next year, or several years in a row after/again. He's just not the answer.

 

Sorry.

Those wins we got at the end of last year had people saying Rivera finally figured it out and turned the corner. Then we started 2013 off going 0-2, with one being a signature "play not to lose" Ron Rivera loss to the fuging Bills.

He needs to consistently (key damn word here) play to win games like a man that has a pair of giant balls.

I want him to succeed here. He's a likable guy and all, and I don't want to have to start all over again. But if we have another devastating close loss because he went conservative, then he needs to go. There's no more excuses.

Again, I truly hope that he is finally getting it and changing his ways. We will certainly find out.

 

 

During his Giants Presser, When asked "why did you go for it on 4th down late in the game  vs let's say Buffalo"? Rivera said, "cause with this team, you could never put too many points on the board against them".

 

I almost spit out my food when he said that (amongst everyone's celebration of the Giants game with him).  So he was essentially saying, 'a 3-6 pt lead is okay against Buffalo. But a close game against the Giants (post Buffalo debacle) was not'??

 

That's Rivera's problem in a nutshell, right there. You play every game to win, regardless of the opponent. And not just after another debacle of a loss that he botched up again. Buffalo (as Tampa Bay, Atlanta, etc. proved last year), can march down the field with no TO's and beat you, like any one else, especially when you give them a chance to do so.  

 

Still don't trust him.

Bingo. Carroll isn't afraid to lose and is willing to pile it on to make damn certain the opposing side lays down. The Seahawks have a killer instinct as a result. Us? We're the Aflac Duck.

When actually wins games that count in September and October you can count me in. Until then color me skeptical.
