First PFT thinks we're the 25th best team, and pretty much says it's because Rivera. Then Football Outsiders says that if we had a better coach, we would be a dark horse Super Bowl candidate. And now here's Pete, saying that the only coaches that Rivera is better than are Dennis Allen and all the guys who have never been a head coach in the NFL before (who he automatically moves to the back of the list).
25. Ron Rivera, Carolina Panthers: He is 13-19 in two seasons with the Panthers, so this is a big one for his career with the team coming up. The Panthers did improve by one game to 7-9 last season, but he might need a playoff berth to keep his job.
Here's hoping that RR is in for a hell of a "I told you so" season.
