07:09 AM ET 09.23 | That long sigh of relief might have been coming from Charlotte. Long before Carolina's victory against the New York Giants is official, a source tells me Ron Rivera never was in danger of losing his job. The source says Rivera would finish the season as head coach regardless of how the Panthers played Sunday against the Giants. After Carolina's 38-0 victory, I tell Rivera he probably won't be asked about job security this week. "You look at our guys and some of the things they do and the fact that they really want to win," Rivera says. ... Rivera doesn't talk about what the victory means to him. Will he show it?As the game winds down, Rivera moves between the 40- and 50-yard lines, wearing black headphones that match his black Panthers shirt.

One and two should not make a head coach feel secure.

Oh and three should make Big Blue feel, well, blue.

Does this mean that we will have to suffer through another Superbowl with countless shots of the Manning family looking lost and confused from their box seats while the talented brother is on the field?

I sure wouldn't concede anything to the Broncos just yet.

Like the Pats, the Jests have had an easy early schedule.
