#2070188 John Kilgo thinks Carolina Huddle posters are idiots

Posted by rayzor on 31 December 2012 - 12:15 PM

not disagreeing, but does anyone have the context? or are we too idiotic to think that context is beneficial to understanding?


#2069834 Saintsreport cracks me up.

Posted by rayzor on 31 December 2012 - 10:26 AM

they had no head coach, the worst defense in the league....ever, and got swept by us and we still finished with the same record.

this bothers me.

low expectations.

going from 6-10 to 7-9 is solid progress.

meh....


#2069756 What has Rivera really proven?

Posted by rayzor on 31 December 2012 - 09:34 AM

What Rivera has shown is that he can adapt and learn as well as get his players to buy into his system and play inspired. Rivera never used the injuries as an excuse for struggling but stressed the positives and the next man stepping up. He has done a great job the past few games and has shown he is definitely worthy of keeping for another year.

i hope so because i really don't see him leaving.

i'll somehow turn into superhomer again heading into training camp, but i don't like his game management at the end of games. when the game is on the line and we have the lead (which has become common) he starts trying to protect the lead by allowing the opposing team to get the ball so that his defense can stop them. the only problem is that the rules have made it easy for big chunks of yardage to be given up in a very short amount of time through the air and teams have over and over found a way to do this against us.

the only safe place for the ball to be is in our offenses hands. a lead is not safe unless the clock strikes 00:00. you either keep putting points on the board or keep the ball in your hands. we've had too many close losses happen when we had the lead because our defense couldn't contain the other offense. yes, the defense should have stopped them. that's their job. the problem was that they shouldn't have been in that situation to begin with. but he's a defensive coach. it's his nature to trust defenses more. it's historically been a safe way to manage games. i just don't think it is effective game management anymore and i don't have faith that he'll get that.


#2069558 What has Rivera really proven?

These coaches your posting each had at least 3 years to prove themselves.
What coach has got fired in their 2nd year with an improve in their record?

Can't wait to see the Rivera haters when a thread about him officially coming back is made.

he'll have to do a whole lot more than just manage to keep from getting fired for any "haters" to look foolish.

he needs to do something other than have a losing season. did he improve the teams record? yes, and at this pace we may end up with a winning record...in 2014. maybe even a playoff spot in 2015.

good times. weeeeeeee..........


#2066061 Interesting Chip Kelly Story

Posted by rayzor on 29 December 2012 - 09:23 PM

I've heard McCoy has an actual shot.

yas is the only one saying that and i don't really consider him to be one that has good enough sources to even tell his arse from his elbow.

mccoy shouldn't be seriously considered. i don't understand why anyone would consider him a viable candidate for a HC job. i don't even consider him an OC. never have. he was barely a QB coach when he was here. "hey jake! throw that ball into that trash can.........ok, close enough. lets go grab a burger."

when mckid was HC for the broncos, mccoy's job was essentially a microphone for the guy actually running the offense. when The Golden Calf of Bristol was QB, mccoy said, "timmy, the boss....no, not fox, the REAL boss mr. elway, said to just let you do your thing so....i don't know what it is that you do, but just go ahead and do it...and put in a good word for me with the guy upstairs. thanks."

and now peyton is there running the offense and mccoy just kind of has to sit there and watch the master do his thing.

not even sure why that guy is even in the league.


#2065930 Interesting Chip Kelly Story

Posted by rayzor on 29 December 2012 - 07:36 PM

I am far from fully sold on Kelly, and would be surprised if JR bought into him.

But I gotta say, bringing him into the fold with his brusque manner and his rep, added to Cam's swag and reputation around the league...well, let's just say it would be fun to watch. We would officially become the bad boys of the NFL, especially if we started winning big.

You think we get roasted in the press now? Ha, you haven't seen anything yet!

thats just one of many draws for me.

i want this team awesome and hated.


#2065775 Interesting Chip Kelly Story

Posted by rayzor on 29 December 2012 - 03:43 PM

Hopefully Chip can coach at the NFL level because there is 0 evidence that he can. I don't see what he does in college being successful at all in the NFL but maybe he's smart enough to come up with good NFL playbook/gameplan. One thing for sure is that I know he will not be the Carolina Panther's head coach so I don't care that much.

there was just as much evidence that rivera or any assistant jumping to a HC job could perform there.

kelly has more experience than rivera at managing a team and a game and has more success. his transition to the pros isn't going to be as difficult as people make it out to be, of course that's given that he's smart enough to surround himself with NFL experienced coaches, and i have no doubt he is. it's not a transition any old joe can pull off, but if you've actually tried to educate yourself on what he does then you'd figure that out.

btw, we got swept this year by a coach with essentially no relevant experience in the NFL.


#2065334 So let's say Ross gets the GM job...

Posted by rayzor on 28 December 2012 - 11:23 PM

What kind of HC doesn't want to interfere with the personnel department?

The GM and the HC should work very closely together. It should be a symbiotic relationship - the GM is trying to draft players that fit the systems the HC is running after all.

This is why I think Rivera's gone. What GM wants to work with the last guy's HC choice? Especially one that has failed.

agreed.

and if ross's first action is to hire a giants assistant that has been turned down for as many jobs as rivera leading to this one, we've made the wrong hire.

#2062905 silatolu goes to IR and panthers tie a record

Posted by rayzor on 26 December 2012 - 05:13 PM

2011 Ron Rivera: "We led the league in players on the IR and we won 4 of our last 6 games."
2012 Ron Rivera: "We led the league in players on the IR and we won 4 of our last 6 games."

that's what we in panther land like to consider "trending up".


#2062803 Cam Newton #1 Scrooge in the NFL

Posted by rayzor on 26 December 2012 - 02:52 PM

i swear i don't know why people keep on posting comments from him, peter king, and skip bayless.

all morons trying to get you guys riled up.


#2062721 Why you think Ron Rivera should stay (or go)? --POLL--

Posted by rayzor on 26 December 2012 - 12:51 PM

I'm worried about Cam in a new system.


i'm not.i'm more worried about him being stuck with a coaching staff that holds the team back and can't get into the playoffs.
