ONN – Ron Rivera Fired By Carolina Panthers, But Took Them To Super Bowl 50
Ron Rivera was fired as Carolina Panthers Head Coach, but leaves behind a great legacy and a winning record: .546 or 74 wins, 63 losses, and 1 tie.
One of his 63 losses could have just as easily been one of his what would have been 75 wins and 62 losses: his Carolina Panthers loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.
There’s no reason for the Carolina Panthers to have lost to the Denver Broncos, save one reason: an offensive game plan that was so inflexible it did not take advantage of a Denver Defense that was giving up the outside fly pattern. The Carolina Panthers had fleet receivers like Ted Ginn, Jr., but never once tested the Broncos Defense in that way.
The Ron Rivera Carolina Panthers Head Coach epitaph will go like this: “His Offense didn’t employ its star players well.”
Cam Newton was tops in that area; a quarterback with an arm who can run, Ron Rivera seemed to see him as a quarterback with legs who could throw. A classic error.
Ron Rivera is a good man and a Cal Alumn who will emerge with an NFL job, and very soon.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
