Predict this year's record!

John Fox was in the playoffs last season.

Sure the panthers have slightly improved but so has the rest of the NFC south.

this isn't the AFC west. 8-8 in this division and you're at home every season. the worst team to ever make the playoffs in the NFC south went 9-7.

the guy was done here. at odds with management, players had given up on him, fans were sick of it. "derp john fox was a good coach" is a pathetic meme. thankfully he's in a crappy division now and people with a childlike understanding of football can watch him carve up poo competition for the next few years and think he's chuck noll.

Rivera can only hope to duplicate JF's success here but we'll see.

absolutely. he's a hell of a defensive coordinator but keeping his hands off the offense is important for continued effectiveness as a team. his offenses require a very narrow set of personnel and a very stiff style that needs very specific circumstances to work properly.

denver is doing the smart thing here. they'll blow into the playoffs easily while we miss the playoffs and the manchildren here will cry for another year about the huge mistake we made.

Rivera can only hope to duplicate the first three seasons of john fox's career here but we'll see.

fixed

73-71 record as a head coach here. just barely above .500

edit: i have to say i liked the guy and was always a supporter of his even when things were at their worst. he had many great games against quality teams but also some amazingly fugly ones against total poo we could have beaten (bills in 2009, many others). it's just that he's the first "real" coach that actually stuck for this franchise so people put him on a pedestal like their first fug.

Hey Grits, is John Fox a better coach NOW than Mike Shanahan?
