Fox Sports Carolinas:
The Carolina Panthers must win four of their final six games to equal a 6-10 mark last season that generated some excitement in the Queen City.
But repeating last years record isnt on anyones mind around the franchise.
Rumors swirling on radio shows and elsewhere suggest many of the Panthers are playing for their jobs because the team will be blown up after the season and Carolina will start from scratch, again.
That, of course would mean a regime change. With former general manager of 11 years Marty Hurney canned last month, that may not bode well for second-year head coach Ron Rivera.
Im not concerned about me, Im really not, Rivera said following Sundays home loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. No matter what happens, Ill be OK. Whether Im here next year or not, I will be A-OK.
But Riveras face has increasingly told a different tale. You can see the stress, and he doesnt wear it well. Hes not a rah-rah coach, so theres no camouflaging it there. He isnt a demonstratively dic...
BEST OF MAXIM
Ron Rivera says based on recent conversations with team owner Jerry Richardson he doesn't know if he'll remain the Carolina Panthers head coach beyond this season.
Rivera says ''I know that nothing is going to happen until after the season.''
Rivera's coaching seat got a little hotter after the Panthers (2-8) surrendered yet another fourth quarter lead...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers made yet another change at kicker.
The Panthers on Tuesday waived the slumping Justin Medlock and replaced him with Graham Gano.
Carolina (2-8) signed Gano, a free agent, to a two-year deal after Medlock missed his last three field goals.
Gano spent 2009-11 with the Washington Redskins, playing in 36 games and converting 59 of 80 field...

Reid was asked whether his own leadership has been rendered ineffective in trying to motivate...
You’re Fired! Even though I unclear as to the reason why…
A strange story out of the Novacare seems to point to a Philadelphia Eagles organization that, both on and off the field, simply doesn’t have a clue.
News of a firing by the Eagles broke overnight. If you’re wondering why there’s no hubbub over it, it’s because it was of someone who has nothing to do with the mess...
Tampa Bay made enough plays to lose Sunday’s game against Carolina. But as this teams has shown time and time again, they will not stop until the final whistle blows. The Bucs would finally gets things together at the end of regulation to force overtime and pull out the victory over the Panthers 27-21. With a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman would...
Going into yesterday’s Panthers game, it was easy to be a little overconfident.
The Bucs had a 5-4 record, and had won four of their last five games. Running back Doug Martin was all over national sportscasts, with talking heads who usually seem to forget the Bucs exist (“Wait, you mean that team with the orange uniforms? Vinny Testeverde’s team?”) proclaiming the newbie...
TAMPA BAY (27) d CAROLINA (21)
The Headline: Buccaneers cap amazing comeback with an overtime win
It just goes from bad to worse for the Carolina Panthers, having played well for 57 minutes and looking on course to win their third game of the year (while keeping their already minute playoff hopes alive) the Panthers got an ugly punch in the guts from their division rival...
CHARLOTTE, NC -- What more can the Carolina Panthers endure?
Once again, a defense that was panned a year ago came up big for 54 minutes Sunday and allowed a struggling offense to do enough to notch a victory. But it didn't exactly work out that way in the 27-21 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Call them what you want -- snake bit, unlucky, just not good enough and...
