Kelvin has been extremely lazy with his route running and doesn't even try to block when we're running. Most of his touchdowns/yards came during garbage time. Out of his 86 targets he's only caught 50ish.
Being white does have something to do with it, I mean, the Panthers are in the thick of Nascar country. I've seen Panthers fans question Cam's intelligence over and over again. They want Derek Anderson to START for Christ's sake.
Prior to this year, would anyone have believed Jerry Richardson would sign off on cutting Steve Smith?
I think Richardson trusts Gettleman way more in the area of football decisions than he did Hurney. The Smith release isn't the only evidence of that, but it's the biggest.
Mind you, there's also been some chatter that Richardson isn't that high on Rivera, but as far as I know it's unsubstantiated.
Nope, Gettleman just signed Rivera and the rest of his staff to an extension, not only would the Panthers have to pay out the rest of their contracts, but also pay another coach and his staff. Which will be very costly.
