I think Atlanta and Carolina are in a rebuild for 2 years. For comparison, the next few seasons will be like ‘14-‘16 for us.
As for Tampa, they’ve been rebuilding since Gruden left.
True. But they also may find the next McVay and change their team's fortunes overnight. You just never know in the NFL.

Might be something to this rumor posted on the Panthers forum earlier.

Wow .. their owner might just be the tough guy (must win) people say he is. I figured Riverboat Ron had enough skins on the wall to at least make it to black Monday but guess not. Will be very interesting to see who they hire next. I heard yesterday, someone on TV, mentioned Rivera could go to the Cowboys next year. Hard to imagine him and Jerry Jones matching up but what do I know.

Uphill battle for the next HC. Their defense is old and lacking depth, OL is a wreck and then you have to figure out what to do at QB.

Makes little sense before the end of the season
It gives Carolina a head start in its coaching search. In their assessment, they will likely be competing with a number of teams seeking coaches at the conclusion of the season, and an early start can be an advantage. IMO it would indicate a larger shake up, ie. Allen is not the answer, Cam is gone, etc.

If Dennis Allen decided to leave for a head coaching job, I wouldn't mind having Rivera as a defensive coordinator. I'm sure he won't be out of a job for long, however.

Rivera brought a lot of success to that team during his tenure. I’m glad he’s out. Even though we had their number for years, they’ve always been a tough hard nosed team that won’t lie down or go away. I hope the new coach commits to Newton for another 5 years.

I think Rivera is a very good coach.

The panthers have been consistent even with an inconsistent quarterback.

I always think you should not fire someone until you know you have a better replacement. We will see....

Surprising move, to be honest, i think Rivera has done a fantastic job with that franchise, including this year, Cam Newton is what has held the Panthers back, not Rivera. I think Temper will regret this move.
