Ron Rivera is the best defensive mind and/or DC in the NFL today. Regardless of what you think of him as a HC. The man is a phenomenal defensive coach.

Sean McDermott is a young, defensive coach prodigy and is quickly becoming one of the best DC's in the NFL. He may be a top 5 DC already. He was unfairly blamed for the mess in Philadelphia and spent his first few years here with major talent deficiencies at several positions. This year is the first time he's had the talent to show what he can do, and he is delivering.

Why people have been dead set on running this staff out of Carolina for almost 2 years is beyond me. Bring in a offensive minded guy and it may help Cam some, but the defense will suffer badly.

If Rivera is fired at the end of the year and we end up bringing in a new HC, I hope Sean stays as DC

With just a few exceptions, I've liked what McDermott has done with our defense since day 1.

 

Too many people here judged him unfairly because of how he left Philly. Then once our D began to come around last year, everyone wanted to give Rivera the credit. 

 

I think he has been severely underrated by many of our fans, and I'm glad he is getting a few accolades now.

I actually think McD would make the best HC of the guys currently employed here. He's a fiery guy the players respect.

I will really appreciate him when we stop giving up last minute drives.

I was one of the ones that hinted after year one that maybe we should look to make a change at DC, now like someone earlier said, if we change head coaches I kinda hope he gets a chance to remain DC.

To be fair, I think he has grown a lot himself as a coach the last two years.

Lol what was it we used to call him? Sean McDumbass? McDerp? I honestly can't even remember.

Defense has come a loooong way since 2011. Granted we had no LBers, no DTs, Hardy wasn't the Kraken yet, and no secondary outside of Gamble.


So what ! Those are just excuses. No seriously we could have retooled the defense and they still could be playing like crap. It shows he is a talented coordinator if given the tools.

I dont know how much is him, and how much is Rivera.

This is Rivera's defense, no doubt.

 

He has feilded #1 defenses for 2 different teams as a co-ordinator. Both Chicago and San Diego.

The real winner is the team that scopes up Rivera as a DC after he gets canned here.

So many accolades for our defense is a good thing.  But I would like to wait and see how we do against some of the better offenses in the league before I am convinced.  If the saints and patriots torch us, then its much ado about nothing. 

 

Excuse me, where is NE's offense
