It's on the record that I've wanted Ron to succeed at Carolina. So, it's no secret that I am beyond ecstatic that he'll remain as head coach. However, I do hope he continues to grow as a coach because I'm not a fan of certain decisions.

Rivera needs to address the offense ASAP. We were much too sluggish on that side of the ball this year. I don't care if draft the next Megatron and Barry Sanders. We'll still have issues if Shula doesn't modify the playcalling and formations.

If the AFC had not been so awful this year I would agree with you. But how many great-to-elite teams were in the AFC? Broncos/Pats/.....maybe Bengals. Not exactly murderers row.

 

 

Belichick did it in the AFC East.

 

Rivera did it in the NFC South.

 

Even a weakened NFC South is better than that division at its best.
 

 

I dunno.  The W-L between the NFCS and AFCE were split down the middle.  I'd agree that the overall schedule was not nearly as daunting, but the question would end up being this for me:

 

What would other coaches do in Bellicheck's position if they lost their two star receiving TEs, their monster NT, another interior D-Lineman, key LB, key Safety, and rotational RB while ramping up the offense to be completely retooled towards the running game?

How many of those coaches have Brady(I hate Brady but he is a great qb)?

A great qb can mask a lot of problems.

Allow me to rephrase then. Take this year's patriots team and substitute any other coach. Does this year's team break 8-8 much less get to the AFC championship game?
