Let's see where the team ends up this season first. I still say if we poo the bed and miss the playoffs or have a bad first game then he gets fired. If the team keeps this up and puts up a good show then, yes.

 

Thats absurd to say that if we lose the first game he gets fired. Him and Mcdermott have turned a bunch of rejects, rookies and 2 stud LB's into an elite D. Cam has taken steps forward and bringing in a new staff would only set him back. The players respect him as well. No way he gets fired if we continue the course we are on.

In Rivera's defense,  he has gotten the team better and better every year.  The team has always improved and has never regressed.  6 wins to 7 wins,  to now,  at least 8 wins.     The guy has been learning also...and I fully believe with more time,  can be a solid coach to always have us in contention,  if we're patient.     Extend the man.

 

 

My exact same thoughts,I couldn't have summed it up better. Salute

It's a lead pipe chinch we don't want the Panthers to pattern themselves after the Texans, an organization that appears to be in total chaos.

If we make the playoffs you have to extend him

Bingo, if we make the playoffs,I would like to see Ron Rivera given an extension shortly after the Super Bowl. There is no way I want him to start the season with a lame duck status.That would certainly do nothing to instill confidence and stability in the present players or potential free agents we may be seeking.  Here is one persons positive thoughts about Ron Rivera.

 

("Ron Rivera has brought the same work ethic and dedication to head coaching as he did to playing, taking the Panthers in a positive direction over the last two years. Rivera inherited a team with a 2-14 record and has steadily guided Carolina from six wins in 2011 to seven in 2012 while building a foundation that includes back-to-back rookies of the year in quarterback Cam Newton and linebacker Luke Kuechly")

Unless we imploded from this position, it'll be Rivera's first season above 0.500 and with a handful of different plays could be 10-1 right now, I'd give an extension should we end up in the play offs

He deserves an extension if and when we make it to the playoffs.

Old Riverboat is a victim of the "instant success" trend in the NFL. He has exhibited all the qualities that we should want in a coach. He has taken our team through a couple of rough years yet he still never gave up and instead of being a static "my way or the highway" coach, he managed to reign over one of the most dynamic coaching staffs in the league. He does not have an incredible ego and truly appreciates his players.

Give the guy a break and extend for two years.

Gettleman is going to be in a tough place if he wanted his own guy. I say give him an extension,he is taking the franchise in the right direction.

This.........

 

so people forget that we drafted Cam with the FIRST pick 2 1/2 yrs ago.

 

Apparently some have forgotten why teams get the first pick in a draft.
