    There is more to winning in the NFL than just the head coach. Cowher was fortunate to have inherited a situation in Pittsburg with a long tradition of success, and excellent ownership and front office management. With that behind him, he was able to make the playoffs two-thirds of the time. Could he do that with the Panthers? Nobody can tell. Could he even win consistently at NC State?

    Reputation wise, as a coach he would have nowhere to go but down. He now has a great job, and a great life. Why trade that for the torture chamber that is NFL coaching?

    He won't take the job. My research and conversations with State fans has proven beyond a doubt that he is just waiting for the right time to coach State.

    Retread coaches in the NFL aren't always as successful in their second go round. I cite Bill Parcels, Joe Gibbs, to name a couple. Be careful what you wish for. Bill Cowher maybe the Panther's answer for a good head coach IF he brings the same intensity and commitment to excellence he had with the Steelers. Everything currently points to the fact that he is very content not to be an NFL head coach, so not sure what his level of enthusiasm would be for a return.

    yes i think bill is the man for the job period! he will turn things around in a hurry he will get the players to believe in themselves again and play even harder than they play now.

    I think Cowher would be a good fit given the fact he makes his home in Raleigh and he is a great motivator. The Panthers have appeared at times as if they lack motivation. Cowher also will use some gadget plays, but he's mainly a conservative guy who seems to favor smash-mouth football. I was calling for Riveras head much of the season, but I think he will get 1 more year to prove himself ........ especially if they finish 7-9 w/a win in New Orleans. Hurney was the guy who pushed hard for giving Rivera a chance and he's gone so I will say I WOULD NOT be surprised if River is let go after the season is over.

    Can you as a fan sit through another Rivera led season? With the talent we have, there is no way we should have a mediocre season, let alone losing seasons. Its really sad, our fan base gets excited about a winning streak at the end of a losing season. That is not acceptable to me. I expect ten win seasons every year and be mentioned as a Superbowl contender on ESPN. All this talk about Rivera may have saved his job by winning some games, well, a losing season in my book, is a losing season and when is that acceptable to anybody? Are we as a franchise settling for an atmosphere of 6-10 or 7-9 seasons as a success or a springboard for better seasons to come.....well, I don't buy into that reasoning at all. I want to win now and I want to go to the playoffs now and I want to win the Superbowl now. How does Cincy, Indy, Seattle and Washington for God's Sake go to the playoffs in one year's time after horrible stinking seasons and we continue to have the same mediocre seasons. They made changes and we all saw changes in progress for the better for those teams. We made changes but it wasn't for the better.....we regressed for the worse and our talent level played to our coach's level.....subpar.....I am drained as a fan and psl holder. To praise this winning streak the panthers are on just shows how far this franchise has fallen from our winning ways, when winning streaks were the norm. Its so upsetting that these guys on the team actually feel good about themselves because they think they have accomplished something when in reality they are nothing but a big letdown to our entire fan base. They should be pushing themselves to get better because every member on this team is a loser in my book for making us go through another losing season again.

    Fire Rivera and staff. Mr Jerry Richardson, its time to bring in Coach Bill Cowhler. He is living in the state of North Carolina. His family lives here. We all know he has that itch back to coach again. Give him full power. Make him General Manager too. Just get him here !!! He is a proven winner. Our franchise has more of a losing than winning history. Bring Coach Cowhler To Charlotte to turn our proud franchise around. The fans are drained from all these losing seasons. We don't want no up and comer or the next best thing, etc. We want the man who we have had our eyes on for years and its time for you to pull out the checkbook and give him the power to bring us that superbowl championship team you promised us back in 1993. We need Bill Cowhler. Make it happen !!!!!
