I don't mean to imply that those who prefer us lose out are bad fans. You're thinking about what benefits the team best long term. I get it. But as much as I want Rivera gone, what I wanted more was for Cam to come out in the second half today and brings up back for a victory. I want us to win.
I agree, in the moment fandom takes over and you really can't help root for your team to win. But to answer a question posed above, about whether or not rooting for your team to lose is being a good fan, I can only say I look at it as a tactical withdrawal to allow the team to regroup. If losing allows us a chance to acquire blue chip personnel, a coaching staff that knows how to use it, and to offer some glimmer of hope for a fan base that has been as abused as an NFL wife/girlfriend, then how can we help but root for the loss? When all hope is gone, there is only April to look forward to.
