A Decade of Ron Rivera

Recommended Posts

This squad has been a team since '95.  

We've had:

1. Dom Capers

2. George Seifert

3. John Fox

4. Ron Rivera

Out of these 23-ish years, we will have had Rivera for 9 of them (maybe 10) with as much to show for it as Fox.  

This needs to be over.  We are wasting away.  What the hell are we even waiting for anymore? 

Capers=defense, Seifert=Walsh finisher, Fox=defense, Rivera=defense

We are perpetually focused on defense and suck on defense.  Weird season and weird coaching.  This team still hasn't figured out their identity.  

My primary point: We have a new owner and have had absolutely dull coaches who were guys "due" HC gigs.  It's time to hire ahead of the curve.  I see a lot of Tepper support but the guy has basically been playing it cool and safe, with cushy marketing and community stuff.  A lot are claiming they love him already and think he's all with it, but I'm saying: let's wait and see.  

Saxy out.

This is Ron’s 8th year, not sure where you get that we’ll have him for 9 or 10 years. He’s gone on black Monday.

i'm still baffled at the george seifert hiring. everyone knew he was a bill walsh understudy and dumbass richardson gave him a shot b/c he so happened to win a superbowl with the niners

i'll still never forget the 98 season though contending with the packers for that final wildcard spot in a point differential tiebreaker. we whooped the poo out of the saints but unfortunately the packers whooped the poo out of the cardinals clinching that final playoff spot by the thinnest of margins. 

i'll also never forget beating the vikings with chris weinke at the helm in 2001 starting the season 1-0 only to lose the next 15. lolll. if we think this 5 game losing streak is bad, imagine that year (although expectations were a lot lower) 

fug man. i still can't believe we're on the brink of missing the playoffs. this poo fuging sucks

I still believe that Foxy was and is a better HC than Ron. 

Fox was a good coach but the game ended up passing him by.

Ron is a coach that lucked out with the talent he was given.

Ron has had Cam and therefore the team has been the best Panther team under his helm. 

His luck has ran out however.

but damn if that 1-15 team didn't play their butts off.  didn't we have leads in the 4th in 8 or 9 of those games?  i liked that team better than i like this one.  they had a lot of heart and more to be proud of to me than our current team

Regardless this team will be in bebuild mode and 3 years away, at the least, from another playoff shot.

Lol it was 1999 and the packers didn’t end up making the playoffs either. Fun time but it wound up being all for naught
