Ron "learning from his mistakes" in Carolina


Recommended Posts

I’ll never forget Norwell sitting on the bench and not even given a chance until injury. Then went on to be the top paid guard in the NFL lol...that’s a serious issue IMO. Shouldn’t take a decade.

But hey, least he’s owning up to it. That, adjustments and time management were his biggest issues. If he is willing to learn and do better he could be a great coach.

I remember DJ in his rookie year looking far better than Funchess.. yeah he had some fumble issues but who cares, coach him up and let him take his lumps and he’d be good (as he is now). Every time he came in he made plays and didn’t get a real shot till Funchess had back issues. 
 

Pretty sure Burns didn’t start either his rookie year.. He came in mostly on obvious passing downs and always made plays/stood out. I’ve had a few occasions wondering why young players didn’t get the start or significantly more playing time when Rivera was here.

And yet see the example above. I don’t see him getting better when he starts a QB who was terrible and he almost cost his team a playoff berth. How you can start a QB in the playoff hunt only to release him the day after the loss is beyond me.

Is he really a slow learner, or does he do what he's empowered to do? 

He's really a slow learner.

The list entitled "things Ron Rivera learned too late" is a long one.
