Ron Rivera clearly isn’t looking at the same team I am on Sundays.
The Panthers are 3-8-1 and haven’t won a game since week 5 and the NFC doesn’t have a single team with a winning record, YET, Ron Rivera claims both are still good.
“I think New Orleans is a good football team, as I do Atlanta — and I think we’re still a good football team,” he said, via the Times-Picayune.
“Believe me, whichever team [from the NFC South] gets in the playoffs, there’s going to be no apologies for it,” Rivera said. “That’s all part of the game. You play the game, they fall the way they may. Look at the way New Orleans beat Pittsburgh — hey, there’s no apology needed. They played a very good football game against a good football team and they ended up winning.”
Sorry Ron, both the Panthers and the NFC South SUCK this season. Maybe he he’d come to that realization, he, his staff and the front office could work on making things better.
