If we win tomorrow would it help make up for the disappointment we have put up with this season and will everyone love Rivera?

A huge step in the right direction for sure. Love? Maybe. Erection? Definitely.

A win tomorrow would make us 3-6.

That's about the only substantive thing that can definitively be said.

3-6 is definitely not indicative of everything being alright.

At this point, I'm hoping Rivera either gets his poo together and shows he's the guy to lead this franchise or we continue to tank, he gets shown the door and the new GM has a nice shiny high draft pick in his pocket. Worst case scenario IMO is the in between. We have mixed success down the stretch leaving Rivera's status in doubt and we win just enough games to take us out of the running of the true blue chip prospects in the draft.

in the short term? absolutely. it means we beat two teams in a row and have made marked progress as a team on offense and defense. it represents a getting-off of the monkey on the back that's been such a black cloud over the team since the beginning of the year. it gives guys the confidence to believe they just shut down the redskins and beat the broncos with peyton manning and now they can go on a tear and rip the eagles a new one.

if we beat the bronocs everything will be fuging fantastic.

Hmm, well right now Rivera's seat is about 105 degrees, a win tomm could cool off his seat and go below 90 degrees. In other words he would go from the hot seat to a "warm but not quite hot seat."

Too many wasted opportunities this year for me to say everything will be alright short of the team making the playoffs.

I will be very happy for the players, cause you know this year has sucked for them and turning it around and winning has got to feel good after so many disappointing losses.

However, wins at this point only reinforce my belief that the coaching staff's refusal to change their offensive scheme prior to game 6 doomed what could have been an outstanding season.

Absolutely NOT! A win would be nice - especially against Fox, but how can we accept 3-6 as worthy of "making everything right" unless our goal was to beat John Fox or win two in a row? Our goal WAS to be competitive enough to make the playoffs. Winning two in a row after losing 4 straight is improvement, but it doesn't make us competitive. Furthermore, having a 3-6 record doesn't give us an opportunity to make the playoffs either. Winning makes it better, but only a playoff appearance can "make everything right".

Besides, our tolerance for more coaching mistakes cannot be dismissed when those mistakes are the primary reason we have no chance at the playoffs this year.

fug the Fox homecoming story. Back to back wins is what matters. Denver is next up after a win, so be it. Would it make EVERYTHING right? No, but it would show that we are getting this ship back on course of being a competitive, respectable franchise.

Sadly, all Fox has done is proven the problem was with the Panthers, not him as a coach. He has his flaws, but he took a fuging The Golden Calf of Bristol QB'ed team to the playoffs last year, then won a playoff game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh with The Golden Calf of Bristol at QB. Looks like they're gonna make it back to back playoff seasons this year.

What have we done since getting rid of Fox? We're 8-16 in that time. He's 14-12 in that same time period, including 1-1 in the playoffs.

I certainly don't think a win today changes how this year has played out. It does however, give this team the opportunity to gain some much needed respect and confidence. Both of which are growing, but are still in a fragile state. Beating the horsey team would go a long way to making this team relevent again.

Whether finishing the year off strong helps Rivera keep his job or not is up for debate. But winning is the only way this team is going to take that next step. The future is still bright. Whether or not that future has already started, or is still on the horizon, will only be revealed when the season ends. By then, we should know pretty much what this team is made of.
