At this point I think half the Huddle would root against the Panthers in the Super Bowl if we got to it, because they hate Rivera so much.
They don't care. They want to sacrifice success for a slightly higher draft pick.
If by some miracle this team got to the SB, everyone would be on board. That said, there are some of us here that fear winning a couple of meaningless games at the end of the year against weaker opponents would mean another year of Ron Rivera. It's not that we hate him, we just don't believe this team will ever amount to anything with him as head coach.
As for the whole draft pick thing, except in the most extreme circumstances, I would never want to see us lose to get a better draft pick.
Getting effective and intelligent leadership for this team going forward may be worth a couple more losses this year. It's kind of like folding when you are playing poker. Of course you want to win, but there comes a point when it's more important to face reality.
