    https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/28110486/panthers-owner-david-tepper-frustrated-latest-loss-says-accept-long-term-mediocrity
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper would not address the future of coach Ron Rivera and general manager Marty Hurney during a Monday meeting with Charlotte-based reporters, but he made it clear that he will not accept long-term mediocrity.
    Tepper also made it clear that no decision has been made on the future of quarterback Cam Newton, saying that can't happen until the first pick of the 2011 draft is completely healthy.
    Newton, who has one year left on his contract, recently was placed on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury that sidelined him after an 0-2 start.
    Tepper's meeting with reporters was held 24 hours after the Panthers fell to 5-5 with a 29-3 loss to Atlanta that put a big dent in their playoff aspirations.
    Tepper said he didn't sleep well after the Atlanta loss, which marked the second time in four games that the Panthers were blown out by an opponent. They were beaten 51-13 at San Francisco on Oct. 27.
    "Every time we have a loss, my mood is s---ty,'' said Tepper, adding that he never accepted losing on the business side, where he accumulated a $12 billion net worth as a hedge fund manager.
    The Panthers have a 13-14 record since Tepper purchased the organization for an NFL-record $2.275 billion from former owner Jerry Richardson in 2018. If the team posts a losing record this season, it will be the second in a row and third in the past four seasons since the Panthers reached the Super Bowl in 2015.
    Carolina's record against NFC South opponents since 2015 is 7-14, compared to 14-4 in the three previous seasons.
    Tepper's frustration over losing was evident, as he continually said long-term mediocrity would not be accepted. He also said fans, many of whom left the stadium early Sunday, were smart enough to recognize long-term mediocrity.
    Rivera, who this year surpassed John Fox as the winningest coach in team history, has an overall record of 76-61-1. The Panthers have a record of 195-198-1 since becoming a franchise in 1995.
    Tepper made wholesale changes to the business side after purchasing the team from Richardson, who put the team up for sale amid allegations of sexual and racial workplace misconduct. The NFL fined Richardson $2.75 million after a lengthy investigation.
    Tepper did not make changes to the football staff last season after a 7-9 record following a 6-2 start because Newton's sore right shoulder played a factor in a seven-game losing streak.
    Newton's shoulder healed after offseason surgery, but he suffered a Lisfranc injury in the third preseason game and reaggravated it in the second game this season. Tepper said that ideally Newton, 30, will recover fully from the injury and one day lead the Panthers to a Super Bowl victory.
    Tepper said Newton has done a lot of good for the team and Charlotte, calling him one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
    Going South
    Here are the Panthers' regular-season records against NFC South teams in the past four seasons and the past nine seasons, dating to when Ron Rivera became head coach in 2011.
    Tepper also made it clear that he likes Newton's replacement, Kyle Allen, suggesting the second-year, undrafted quarterback has played above expectations despite throwing four interceptions against Atlanta and nine in the past four games.
    The Panthers are 5-3 under Allen this season and 6-3 overall with Allen, dating to a victory in last season's finale at New Orleans, where the Panthers play Sunday. Allen started his career with a 5-0 record, making him the seventh quarterback in NFL history to get off to such a start.
    Tepper defended the organization's decision not to go to Colin Kaepernick's workout in Atlanta on Saturday, saying the team has a young quarterback in Allen, a third-round pick in Will Grier and Newton, so there was no interest in signing a veteran quarterback.
    Tepper also said he has video of Kaepernick's workout, so attending the session wasn't necessary.
    Neither Rivera nor Hurney was part of Tepper's meeting. Earlier in the day, Rivera expressed hope that the Panthers still could make a playoff run. He said they control their destiny with two games left against the Saints (8-2), a rematch against Atlanta (3-7) and contests against Washington (1-9), Indianapolis (6-4) and Seattle (8-2).
    "Probably the biggest thing is we control it,'' Rivera said of the team's playoff hopes, even though the Panthers stand ninth in the NFC playoff hunt. "It's one game at a time. It's one focus at a time. That's probably the biggest thing we have to do is focus in on the next opponent.
    "That's just getting ready for New Orleans."
    Tepper's focus, with future plans to move the team headquarters to a state-of-the-art facility in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and get a new stadium in Charlotte to host the Panthers and an MLS team, is to give fans hope and end the long-term mediocrity.
    Although he didn't mention Rivera or Hurney, he appeared to be putting them on notice.
    As Tepper indicated the day he was hired, his first priority is winning.
     
    Hates mediocrity, loves Kyle Allen. Nothing worse than a confused billionaire.

    There you go handing out assignments again. This time I'll oblige son. Just off the top:
    Ryan - throwing inexcusable rookie level picks Free - coughing up the ball on crucial drives Mack - getting beat then adding stupid as penalties on top Bloodline - getting handled from the first play of the season til deep into the schedule McGary - gotten his as handed to him at least 10 times. Maybe 15 Carpenter - stealing checks  Jamon - getting Jamonned Hoop - shutting down the edge run on TFLs in the backfield with whiff blocks Crawford - falling off a 1000' cliff Beasley - going ghost the first eight weeks while depositing $6.4M in his account Takk - not being able to get the Mtfkg QB on the ground for his grand mama Devondre - losing coverage on a regular basis Oliver - looking lost without GPS or a road map Ice Bryant - turning into Jason ELeft Vecchio - going Giorgio Armani on us There's at least six for you bro. Now go back and watch them dam tapes. Plenty players were in position and wet the bed worse than Ledbetter. Rooks, sophomores and vets. And yall blame that on Quinn? OK

    Because we will never have a decent O-Line with TD as our GM.
  9. Pacific_Falcon liked a post in a topic by Sun Tzu 7 in If DQ stays what about TD?   
    These last 2 games it sure looks like this is a talented team.
    Why would you fire the GM when the 1-7 record was due to ****** coaching?
  10. Pacific_Falcon liked a post in a topic by Falcanuck in If DQ stays what about TD?   
    TD isn’t being fired and was never in jeopardy of being fired.

    Pretty sure we are talking about cross seasonal momentum. Which is as fictitious as Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, tooth fairy and Michael Turner saying no to a burger.

    Off-season momentum?
    You mean that thing where a team wins games towards the end of the season.  Takes several months off.  Changes are made in personnel and possibly coaching staff, making it a different team,  and then "hits the ground running" like it did at the end of the previous season?
    Like last season?  They finished with off-season momentum, made changes in personnel and staff, and promptly started the season 1-7.
    Are we talking about the same thing?

    Oh let's not start with the 'offseason momentum' thing again.
    I thought the start to this  season proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that doesn't exist.

    1-8, 4-9 starts. Jordan Richards trade for 6th, Vic Bustley, Trufant, 5-2 Defense, turning Takk into an OLB tells me he doesn't know defense as well as you think he does. I am ready to move on.

    I did say repeatedly that our problem was not talent on the field. It was horrible coaching. I said repeatedly that Cowardly Clueless Quinn was the problem.
    Not the players.
    Not TD.
    These two games have proven  me right.
  16. Pacific_Falcon liked a post in a topic by brewman in Quinn and the bigger picture   
    In his 5 seasons with the Falcons DQ's teams have had too many extended losing streaks.  Time to go. (Edit - fixed 2019 stats)
    2015 - 7-9.  6 game losing streak, and 7 losses in 8 games
    2016 - 11-5. Superbowl season.  2 game losing streak
    2017 - 10-6. 3 game losing streak, and 4 losses in 5 games
    2018 - 7-9.  5 game and 3 game losing streaks.
    2019 - To Date:  3-7 with 6 game losing streak.

    I think all you need to put things in perspective is ask yourself what if Quinn stays but Ulbrich and Morris leave?
  18. Pacific_Falcon liked a post in a topic by Sun Tzu 7 in If we could just convince Falcons the record is 1-9 before season starts   
    Because it’s the most Falcon thing to do.
    Look great when it no longer matters.

    We've still had 20 pass attempts to just 9 rush attempts. Seems standard Dirk to me.

    You always wanna see your favorite team play good but it pisses me off to deep extremes to see them playing like they should have been playing all season long this late into the season.

    Really? Care to substantiate this claim? There's a lot more than you think. Even the ones who don't have significant influence over play-calling. Quinn doesn't.
    Bill, for example, will often step in and override his DC. He isn't the 'play-caller', but he is the mastermind of every Pats D.

    You were talking about a defensive backs coach giving a halftime speech. I assume you think that nobody gives Quinn credit. He deserves credit, but also criticism. He's the reason for the decline. When you've fired two DCs, for your defensive failure, and thought you could do better. HCs has to make smart decisions. We were 1-7, with 3 of those games winnable.

    The defense guru can't build or call a defense, but let's mock the people that lamented that because once he stopped calling plays, we won 2 games in a row. Genius.

    Quinn is a great cheerleader. Not playcaller.
