#1971292 Potential Head Coaching candidates on display tonight.

Posted by ladypanther on 29 October 2012 - 07:40 PM

I want Rob Ryan or Rex Ryan (if he is fired).....

No Ryans please.

#1968519 Kuechly = better defense

Posted by ladypanther on 28 October 2012 - 04:50 PM

He led the team with 10 tackles. 1 for a loss.

#1968394 Major Changes.

Shula should know Cam better than anyone. Maybe he could set him up for success. He was the HC at Alabama...so he has been in the spotlight and has been under pressure. Couldn't be any worse.

#1968232 Let me get this straight

Posted by ladypanther on 28 October 2012 - 04:02 PM

Cam passer rating 57. Neither int was his fault. But 20 of 39 is not getting the job done, IMO.

#1968178 Major Changes.

If RR is fired, I think you promote Shula....he has experience as a head coach...college, but still. Would not give it to Chud or McD.

It would surprise me if Rivera is fired. But then Hurney after the last game surprised me.

#1967928 Major Changes.

I do not have a prob with not going for the 51 yd FG. Likely decision was made based on warmups. I do have a prob with the lack of pressure on Cutler in the 2nd half and not stopping the same play run over and over.

#1966276 Mort said Richardson did not want Rivera

Posted by ladypanther on 28 October 2012 - 10:08 AM

.....and said that is the reason Hurney was fired. He actual words were that Richardson had reservations about Rivera.

Wonder who JR liked?

Rivera will have to pull off a miracle to keep his job.

#1966010 I hope Chud is not watching Notre Dame right now!

Posted by ladypanther on 27 October 2012 - 09:18 PM

I am sure the expectations for Chud's game plan and play calling have be made very clear to him. He prolly isn't allowed to watch a college game for the rest of the season.

#1964847 D-Will on trading block?

Posted by ladypanther on 26 October 2012 - 07:00 PM

I am for getting a coach who knows how to use the Panthers backfield.

#1962216 Khan/Cowher a Package Deal?

Posted by ladypanther on 24 October 2012 - 10:15 PM

Not sure about Cowher either, but ask 100 Panthers fans if they would take the record described above and run with it, and 95 would say "hell yes" (I'd be one of them).

1 SB win in 15 years. 2 appearances. I think we want better than that. remember....did not even make the playoffs in year 15 after SB win.

I don't want the Panthers just to be better than the past.....I want them to be very good, sometimes great. I want a team who wins the SB and does not fall off the cliff the next year.

So, like I said....Cowher, based on his record is ok. I am hoping for better.

#1960572 Panthers expected to hire outside consultant to run GM search

Posted by ladypanther on 23 October 2012 - 10:17 PM

And I'm friendly as well. I was not pwned... Do you even know what that means? Or were you just excited that someone used a "hip" term and your name in the same sentence?

Wow. I am disappointed that you were so condescending. Thought you knew me better than that.

#1960534 Fair criticism of Cam.....but

Posted by ladypanther on 23 October 2012 - 09:54 PM

A few things to think about...

If you watched the whole presser, Cam's comments about the script came immediately after he talked about his play needing to improve and the losses from a play here or there. I did not get the sense that his comments were directed at Chud anymore than at himself.

Next, please consider that in the last 24 hours we have heard direct quotes from the ex-GM and our current head coach that they don't know what's wrong and aren't sure how to fix it. In spite of that, our 23 year old, 2nd year QB is supposed to go in front of the press and diplomatically tell them what's wrong while exhibiting perfect emotional control.

So no, I don't think the criticism is fair in any way.

Cam did talk about his failures. But, as much as I hate to admit it....when he loses...he is moping....and I am sorry, it almost seems like he feels like he is a victim. He also mentioned the coordinator in this presser......a big NONO. Cam is not a rookie anymore. He needs to man up. He comes across as self centered with his ridiculous Superman celebrations when he scores. His losing sulking is getting old. Someone needs to grow a pair and be straight with Cam. If I need to be the one...someone hook me up.

If you'd like to elaborate on what you don't understand about what I said, I'd be more than happy to explain it to you.

Seeking outside expert opinion does not mean that you have no idea what is going on. It means you are mature enough to get all the info and opinions you can to make the best possible decision.

#1960493 So.....my follow-up thoughts

Posted by ladypanther on 23 October 2012 - 09:30 PM

I said the Dallas game would be big and that I would reserve my opinion until after that game. So, what I saw.....................

The D looked better than I thought. They only had 1 bad drive. Not bad considering our secondary. I do wish they would have sacked Romo a few times.... And, the bend but don't break, gives me PTSD flashbacks.

Thomas Davis.....how amazing is he? How could he not be the comeback player of the year, even at this point?

Luke/Beason. We have a nice prob there. I believe Beason has been playing hurt all season. Can't judge his performance on that.....but.....he has got to get healthy. (It seems he hurt the team by playing injured....am sure what not he wanted). Hope the Panthers can find a way to get a healthy Beason and Keek in the game. That, with and amazing Davis......................

Offense....well there were some adjustments. To my liking, Cam seemed to get rid of the ball more quickly...the read option pass was nice. However, the other adjustment....to decide that the read option was not the problem, but that DWill was. I cannot imagine how they/someone came to that conclusion.

It is sadly amusing to remember how upset we were when Chud was getting HC interviews. I would be shocked if Rivera, a D coach, has been telling Chud what to run. My guess is that he trusted Chud, who seemed so successful last year. However, Rivera should have given orders to change this course before now. Was hoping the Dallas game would have been the change/revelation.

As a leader, I like what Rivera said early on. But I am wondering that he has not lead with the players where it is needed the most. It seems he has coddled Cam, who is utra talented but very self centered and immature. He needs direction rather than kid gloves. Rivera should have banned everyone from those ridiculous endzone celebrations. I think this team should have character...and when they score....be mature and act like they have been there before.

So, the Hurney firing. Shocking....considering how close he seemed to be to JR. But then, JR did fire his sons. JR trusted Hurney with his team, and he let him down. I do believe JR wants to see his team win a SB. Given his health history, there has got to be a sense of urgency. I also think he is sincerely disappointed he has not gotten this done, given his promise in the beginning. Despite what many here think.....I do not believe it is all about money.

Going forward. The Bears are not as good as their record. The Panthers could be better than their record with a decent plan. The coaches should have been in panic mode during the bye week. (Panic mode=quit being stupid) Did not see results. Hope JR told Rivera to stop that read option crap. If he did not...hope Rivera figured it out. If not, I doubt the firings ended with Hurney, rather, they just began.

Posted by ladypanther on 23 October 2012 - 08:33 PM

At least there's news on it now... I mean, to me it appears as though JR is serious about getting things turned around... But at the same time, it's almost an admission that he has no fuggin idea what's wrong with his own club...

This isn't good imo

I just cannot understand that kind of thinking.
