Indy's interim HC Arians already has a win more impressive in his first week and he's coached 1 game? Rivera's had 21.
There's a good reason Arians got a game ball along with Pagano, and it goes well beyond the fact it was Arians' first victory as an NFL head coach. Simply, he did a masterful job managing his team's emotions, guiding them through the lows of last week's news of Pagano's leukemia diagnosis and shepherding them to the inspiring highs of Sunday afternoon.
They overcame so much more adversity than the Panthers have even seen.

I can go more. Want me to?
Obviously Newbies doesn't know history or facts
To add to the list: Sean Payton made it to the NFC championship, Rex Ryan did the same in the AFC twice in his first years.
Nobody expects a superbowl in two years. They expect a competitive team capable of playing through adversity and closing out games. Not one that shits the bed in the fourth quarter.
