Win, the other option would mean I would watch the game and not pull for the panthers, will never happen. That said, anything less than winning this poo division and wRong Rivera needs to be outta here.
I hate him far worse than I hated Fox. Fox had his ups and downs, but I've just grown absolute disdain for Rons garbage. Point was made on the radio, and a good one. Avant gets cut after his remarks about Rivera, a lot of things could have happened to allow Brown more playing time without having to Cut Avant, so, a point could be made that this is the organization is saying they are behind wRong Rivera. If thats the case, I need far more alcohol than Mecklenburg county possesses.
I don't think it's that extraordinary for aint's fans to convert.
God, you don't know how bad I'd love to have more convert taint fans. I grew up in a Saints household, in the heart of Saints country. In 02, I was a freshman in college, and 18 years old, and the Saints refused to even give Jake a chance to play and kept playing turd Aaron Brooks while injured down the stretch to missing the playoffs. in the offseason when Jake was a Free Agent, I said I'd follow whatever team he went to, and he went to Carolina. Little known fact, 105.1 KPEL in lafayette broadcasted the games on the radio during Jake Delhommes seasons in Carolina. I followed during the super bowl run, but I was still on the fence, then Katrina Happened. I gave up on the Saints for good then and it was simple logic..If I was a fan of a team due to their location, and Fatass Car Salesman Dickhead Tom Benson was willing to move a team to San Antionio, and continually go back to the state and force taxpayers to pay for things he clearly has the money to pay for, then I have no need to be a fan of his team. Since the 05 season, I've been die hard. I got my Smith Jersey in 07, and wore it proudly every year, even the abortion that was the 2010 season. I never knew that I'd be offered a job IN Charlotte 11 years after I became a Panthers fan, it's been a fun ride. I can't wait to go to the Bucs game (I know, its a bad game...but I have a family to support and a special needs child, so finances are quite short on my end) just so that for the first time I can really be around my people. I don't care where I sit, or how bad of a season, I'm just ecstatic that I get to be in BOA. Good or bad, they're my team and I can't wait.
Well, i was going to repress this story, but today's events kind of justify it. I was dropping my youngest off at daycare this morning. He was wearing his Panther coat like he does everyday its cold. We walk into the room and this little girl yells "Boo Panthers! We hate the Panthers!". He looked at me with the sads. The teacher said her parents are Packer fans.
I give you, the state of the franchise.
Well her moms cooch is is called lambeau field because the grass is dead, ground is frozen, and no man wants to play there 9 months out of the year.
Why were we playing avant and catch over brown? Simple, Rivera seems to believe in the fact you play who you pay, and more money is being spent on avant than philly. Show me an instance on the roster where a backup is making more than a starter who isn't on a rookie contract. That's why it took forever for them to cut Godfrey, why Cason was given a pass while white got benched, why Harper continues blocking cole and boston, and why brown was buried on the depth chart with avant and cotchery shitting the bed. This infuriates me, in fact, this was why I became a panthers fan when the saints did the same fuging thing to jake with Aaron brooks stinking up the starting qb spot. Our depth chart is based on bank account and not talent.
Offense, defense, special teams. All 3 parts of a football team fail. And that goes on the HC. Why? Cause he let his coordinators do all the work with no input. Why again? Cause he has no input to give. Which is why they just stand there like a fuging manikin
IMO the best head coaches have coaching experience on all phases. We need somebody at-least with offense and defense experience. Look at the current top consistent coaches and check their coaching resume. But one thing which we should NEVER ever again go with is, only defensive coaching and 0 HC coaching experience
Cam and Ron never matched.. Ron don't know how to develop a QB. You got Ken Dorsey as his QB coach, Mike Shula as his OC. Get this man out of here and start running a NFL franchise in 2014 times, not 1999 times
The play just before half shows EVERYTHING the panthers lack. 30 seconds, 6th round rookie under center, bomb for 80 yards TD. I watched that play and died a little on the inside. I seriously think Rivera might be the first Coach in history to call for a punt on 3rd down...
I thought the same thing. Atleast give Cam the option. Bootleg with cam out, give him 1 read, if it's not there, run. Best of both worlds, he only passes if it's a super high percentage chance completion, if not, he runs. THIS is what you have that other teams don't possess, the ability to have that play as a legitimate option...instead, charge stewart up the fuging gut, what's the worst that could happen. Rivera should have been fired on the spot.
1: it all depends on how much power Gettleman really truly has.
2: considering his track record this offseason, I'm worried about Gettleman too.
To me, the only way Rivera stays is if Gettleman gets to choose the offensive staff, but then he's almost a lame-duck coach.
And it's not like Gettleman hit for the fences with this year's ol....
If you fire and replace Shula with Ron on the hot seat next season, it's the same situation we're in now. Remember when we lost chud and everyone thought we had to promote Shula cuz no coach would want to come into this situation with Ron on the hot seat, same situation would happen next year and we'd get a lame duck OC. You either fire both or neither, and both need to go.
