The Buccaneers may not have the best history, but at least their recent success should propel them forward. The Panthers on the other hand…..

Black Monday came and the NFL world faced its first major shakeup of the season. Coaches fell in bunches, and it was nice for the Buccaneers to sit in a position of power during a time like this for the first time in a while.

As coaches fell, well-liked and otherwise, the discussion turned to why some coaches survived the cut and who the new head coaches across the league should be.

Joe Judge was the first major point of contention, as it was clear as day from his hiring that he wasn’t a fit, and making it through Black Monday came as a shock. In the end, the Giants made the right decision to part with Judge, and that turned the conversation to Carolina’s Matt Rhule.

Rhule has emerged as the weakest of the current head coaches after Judge fell, and the Panthers have made yet another terrible decision for their future in kicking the can down the road for another year.

This decision, coupled with paying Christian McCaffrey and trading for Sam Darnold rather than taking one of the talented rookies, should ensure that the Panthers sit at the bottom of the totem pole for several more years at least.

Not having a quality head coach or quarterback for the future is a cardinal sin in the NFL, and the Panthers will see this first-hand.

Rhule has stayed the executioner’s hand, but what more do the Panthers need to see? The past week has brought out a bevy of questionable comments and decisions from Rhule that the fanbase clearly hates, yet ownership is doing nothing to make the change that everyone knows is coming.

Staying in a bad relationship just to say you gave it a full chance works for no one. One more year of bad will only hurt even more, especially when you have so many other quality options this season in the head coaching market.

There is a reason why the Buccaneers will own the Panthers for years to come, and sticking with Matt Rhule is likely reason number one.
