In Topic: Who are the best Panthers Defensive Ends All-Time?

Yes, Peppers is the best DE in team history. But he also was a below average DE for an entire season during what should have been his prime, and for reasons yet to be explained. That still gets to me.


In Topic: Rivera up for Coach of the Year Again

We got absolutely blown out 6 times this year, and Cam Newton is our quarterback. That's not a good season of coaching however you spin it.

In Topic: "The last 6 games"

13 January 2015 - 12:41 PM

I don't like Rivera's attitude on this, and I don't consider this a successful season. The fact is that in the regular season, we won 7 games and did not win 9 games, getting ABSOLUTELY SPANKED in 6 of them. Yes, we had 7 wins and 6 spankings. Had our division not sucked, we would all be going crazy about what a terrible season this was. I could actually understand having a losing season with all the holes we seemed to have on our roster, but 6 blowouts in unacceptable and should absolutely still be in the minds of coaching staff, management, players, etc. 

 

I don't want Rivera fired myself, if only because the grass ain't always greener, but let me say it clearly:

 

Coach Rivera, your team won this year only as often as you got blown off the freaking field. I'd rather you balance your attitude of "building on recent successes" with one of making darn sure nobody blows us out next year.

Oh no! What about their locker room chemistry? All the little boys who need hugs from their veteran teammates in addition to their millions of dollars to do their jobs???
