Anyone else want to lose to the Giants?

Rivera is gone next year. We are not going to the playoffs with this sorry offense. I say lose, so we can trade back in the draft, give our new coach a bunch of picks to turn this thing around. For those of you who say losing will bring down the players, most of the players we have on this team will be gone when the new coach come in. Godfrey is gone, our whole secondary (what's left of it) is gone, Beason might be gone, Armanti Edwards/Brandon Lafell/every other guy we falsely built up to be among the greatest Panthers in history will be gone. Who cares about what they're feeling like in that locker room. We are starting over, and only the younger players will remain.
So let's talk a little bit about what it means to be a fan for a sec. Fan of course is short for fanatic. In short, if you are a fan, it means you are crazy for your team. Now, there are different ways to be crazy for a team. One, is to hope for your team to win, even if it ends up hurting the franchise overall. If not hurting, certainly not helping. Another way is to want to find the faster way for a bad regime to get out of town. In this case, hoping the Giants lay the smack down on Rivera's Panthers. If it meant forcing Jerry's hand to fire Rivera in the bye week, I'm for it. Again, we aren't going any where with this team. The Bills is one of the weakest teams we are going to face all season, and if it weren't for two turnovers and a couple of dumb penalties, they probably would have won by a comfortable margin.
Ultimately, wanting Rivera gone by week 4 of the NFL season is another way to show your true fandom.

At this point it's clear to me that this team is not going to make the playoffs.
If they turn things around, then fantastic I'll probably have a heart attack from the thrill of it all.
From this point onward losses don't bother me, and won't unless we get above .500. Losing to Seattle crushed my soul, and losing to the Bills stamped out whatever flicker of life was left. I'm done, and looking toward the future, which will include a new coaching staff and very high draft picks. The more we lose, the higher we draft and the quicker we're rid of RR.
I won't be going into any game this season hoping the Panthers lose. I'll just watch the game with dead lifeless eyes and wait for the near inevitable loss. We have too many players who are 'football stupid' to expect to beat any team this year imo.
Now when we get close to the end of the season and we're already eliminated from the payoffs, then I'll feel good about the Panthers losing the remaining games for higher picks. Winning at the end of one season doesn't carry over to the next season, and you need to look no further than our own team for evidence of that. High draft picks carry over, and usually make a huge difference the following season.

Have you seen Rivera coach?
You've really constructed a fantasy world where if they start to win it's only becuase the players have started coaching themselves?
And according to the stoic genius himself, we lost all of these games because of execution. Well, if we lost because of the players exclusively, if we win it should all be due to them as well.
