Taylor has worked as a broadcaster all across the fruited plain, starting as a sports reporter for WEAR TV in Pensacola, Fla., in 2000-01. From there he went on to host the Morning Show for Sports Radio 560 in Nashville, Tenn., for a year, before returning home to Mobile where he served as the Program Director and Afternoon Host for Sports Radio 105.5 until 2004.
He first came to North Carolina in June of 2004, serving as Program Director and Morning Host for Triangle Sports Talk 1490/1090 in Raleigh/Durham until the summer of 2006. Before coming to 680 WPTF, Taylor hosted the pre and post game shows for football and men’s basketball for the Tar Heel Sports Network in addition to being the play-by-play voice of Carolina’s women’s basketball team.
Unfortunately I have reached this conclusion: Ron Rivera is not a head coach. He’s 1-10 in games decided by 7 points or less, he has no idea how to manage end of half scenarios (see the Atlanta game or the Bears game), he signs off on a play to lose defensive schemes, and most importantly, his record is 7-16.
What a mess. The Carolina Panthers are void of talent on defense, on their offensive line, at head coach, and in their front office. They have a locker room full of nice guys, but hardly anyone willing to step up and be a leader.
There is one word that Carolina Panthers fans should be looking for in their team’s final eleven games: FIRE. Okay, let’s use a few more: passion, intensity, anger, and maybe most important, pride.
There’s simply too much for the Panthers to overcome to right the ship this season. Cam Newton is struggling, DeAngelo Williams can’t find holes, Jonathan Stewart is banged up, and injuries on defense, namely Jon Beason, are starting to add up. And most importantly, the Carolina Panthers don’t have enough talent on the defensive side of the ball.

Is it fair to start wondering about Ron Rivera as an NFL head coach? He’s only been at the helm in Charlotte for 20 games, but his record is 7-13 and his team has consistently blown 4th quarter leads. He shows his inexperience in quality control situations, the most recent example coming in Atlanta with how his team mismanaged the end of the first half.
During Week #4 of the NFL Season, Cam Newton talked to reporters today in the locker room after practice about a wide range of topics, one was the fallout from the Thursday night game against the NY Giants on NFL Network.
Many people say “as long as you’re watching it doesn’t matter how bad the officiating is.” Well, that might be true but the integrity of the NFL has been totally compromised.
I firmly believe the Panthers win over the Saints was one the team had to have. Many of you disagreed on air but my feelings were backed up in that locker room. Jordan Gross called it “a must win” because you cannot start 0-2 overall or 0-2 in your division and make the playoffs in 2012
If the Panthers would’ve turned it over a bunch, fumbled a couple of times, committed a lot of penalties, etc I don’t think I would be nearly as alarmed. But after watching them get whipped at the line of scrimmage for four quarters by the lowly Buccaneers I’m concerned.
