The best NFL gambling sites aren’t giving the Panthers as great odds as they would’ve circa 2015. However, any man with two hands has a fighting chance, as they say in the parlance of our times. On the other hand, a head coach’s offensive and defensive coordinators are like his right and left hands. In that sense, Ron Rivera was armless for a while. Former OC Mike Shula became the quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator of the New York Giants. And former DC Steve Wilks became head coach of the Arizona Cardinals. Rivera has had some time though to grow accustomed to his new prosthetics.

The Panthers hired Norv Shula as offensive coordinator in January. Turner has head coached the Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders, and San Diego Chargers. However, he has enjoyed greater success as an OC. In particular with the Dallas Cowboys. With whom he won consecutive Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993. Also, he has offensively coordinated the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns. Meanwhile, the virtually unknown Eric Washington was promoted from defensive line coach to defensive coordinator also in January. Change can be good. And perhaps this is the change the Panthers needed to return to their 2015 form. After all, there is no law that says a new OC has to underperform. We´re looking at you, Steve ‘Cutty Sark’ Sarkisian.
