Was This Weekend The Final Straw For Ron Rivera? Make The Case For The Panthers To Keep Him As Head Coach

When Rivera accepted the job of the Panthers, he was given more than just a job title. He was given a plate of awful contracts, players that couldn't play and a GM that hamstrung him. Not a soul in the NFL wins under those exact same conditions. I'm not sure we truly know what he offers as a coach, motivator and leader. One more year, with a new GM that may go after free agents and that can draft better, seems reasonable and fair.

Getting rid of the head coach now puts us back another 3 years.

It also costs us a few million to pay him out of his contract.

I say keep him one more year if he does have a winning record for the 2nd half of the year.

If not it's time to look for another coach.

The only way Ron Rivera stays is if the Panthers can rally to win 7 of their Final 9 Games which will not happen. A New General Manager usually means New Head Coach.

The only case I can make would be if the team finished by getting to .500 and I don't see that happening. He is not a head coach.
