#3148766 How bad is Ron Rivera?

Posted by CarolinaPanthers8789 on Today, 02:45 AM

Will that help him have his team prepared after bye weeks? Will that help him start out quickly in a season? Will that help bring up the intensity in practice during training camp?

Ron Rivera isn't a good head coach. I'd say he's probably in the bottom half in the league. He has more than just one fault that will make him a good coach. In fact, he has a laundry list full of them.

Winning three games in a row has someone blinded people to the brutal blow outs we suffered seemingly every week, while Rivera called out random players like KB, and said that Cam and Luke have to be perfect.

Some of those things are on players.

Preparation is just as much on the players as it is on the coaches. Bill Belichek can have the best game plan drawn up but if the Patriots half-ass it, they're gonna lose.

Intensity is another thing that's on the players, Ron can try and pump up his players til he's blue in the face but if CJ would rather lolly gag the first half of the season, then that's what he's going to do.

Also those players are called out because they are held to a higher standard, they're leaders. When I was a semi-assistant (assistant to an assistant) for a year at a small program, we had a QB (that's now a WR in the NFL) that was constantly called out. Why? Because the staff knew he could be better. Sometimes there is no point in calling players out like Bell and Chandler because they truly are doing the best they can and that's not on Rivera, that's on G-Man for giving Rivera poo to work with.

Maybe, just maybe we have a team that doesn't take their poo seriously until their backs are against the wall. Notice how last year guys like Smitty and Hardy were fed up after week 5. This year, we didn't have a team show life until three weeks ago.

That's personnel, not coaching. These players need to be just as accountable as the coaches and it's time the fans understand that.

Does Ron have some things that he struggles with, sure. He's stubborn, his in-game decisions aren't exactly great, and he seems to struggle evaluating talent. However, those are things that can be fixed and to an extent are being fixed.

Just speaking from experience, getting on this revolving coaching carousel is not something you want to do when you have a coach that is loved by his players and has shown the ability to be a solid head coach.

Shula and Rodgers need to go, but that's where the buck stops with me.

I also think it's hilarious how people think that hiring a new head coach will just change things.

There's a reason that teams that are always on the coaching carousel suck, no continuity.

Continuity is just as important as coaching. For example, look at the poo storm that San Fran has become. Good coach, bad continuity, bad result.

In my honest opinion, I think jumping on the Fishin' Boat would be a bad idea.

I do however think that Shula and Rodgers need to be upgraded.


#3148627 Still Want Rivera Gone

Posted by CarolinaPanthers8789 on Today, 12:01 AM

The day a fan actually explains what a coaching job is all about is the day I gave a crap what they think about coaches.

It's not what people think it is.

 

This man.... gets it.

 

With that said, fire Shula.

Not in the slightest. Exercising the demons.

Might as well post the Kasay kick out of bounds in the SB since we'll be playing the Patriots in the SB again.

No team has won the division 2 years in a row.

 

Something has got to give next week!

 

So what you're saying is.....

 

 

History will be made.

This thread needs to be deleted, bad mojo going on up in here.




#3148431 Bengals/Steelers Favorite To Be Flexed for SNF

Posted by CarolinaPanthers8789 on Yesterday, 10:39 PM

Going to laugh when we lose a 1:00 start, like that really matters at this point if we are in primetime or not

 

That's a weird sense of humor you have.




#3148377 Ariona or Seattle? (GB and Detroit)

Posted by CarolinaPanthers8789 on Yesterday, 10:14 PM

Just messing around with the playoff machine...

 

We should be rooting for a Seattle win tonight, and a Carolina + Detroit + Seattle win next week.

 

That puts us at home against the 3rd string quarterback Cardinals. Following that game, we would head to Detroit to play the Lions. Then in the NFC Championship game we would most likely take on the Seahawks or Packers.

 

Then we win the Super Bowl.




#3147962 Most NFL media people are predicting Panthers/Falcons will be flexed to SNF

If a primetime game scares you, then the playoffs must be a nightmare.




#3147510 Cam calls Panther fans classless (Manziel injury)

Posted by CarolinaPanthers8789 on Yesterday, 05:41 PM

If he think's that is classless, he should try to spend an hour on the huddle.

 

But yeah, that was messed up.




#3147410 Harper Says TD Wasn't On Him

Posted by CarolinaPanthers8789 on Yesterday, 05:18 PM

Probably because everyone blames him for sh1t even if it wasn't his fault. Probably just defending himself.

 

Well up to this three game winning streak, he'd been utter garbage.

 

So when something bad happens and the guilty party is between you and the reigning DPOY, you're probably going to get called out.




#3147376 Harper Says TD Wasn't On Him

Posted by CarolinaPanthers8789 on Yesterday, 05:12 PM

Whether it was his fault or not, not something I want to hear before a huge game next Sunday.  Just call it a bad play by the defense and leave it at that.

 

This is another thing that I failed to point out.

 

Why say anything at all?

 

Either take credit for it or just say it was a mix-up as a whole.




#3147349 Harper Says TD Wasn't On Him

Posted by CarolinaPanthers8789 on Yesterday, 05:06 PM

Maybe that was his assignment

 

Could have been, but if it was a zone (which it looked like Luke was playing) then there is no way that's the case.

 

You don't play zone without a deep safety.

Joe Person ‏@josephperson
Harper says the TD wasn't on him. Didn't ID the guilty party.


Some solid veteran leadership right there....

 

Calling out the reigning DPOY? Great idea smh.
