Anyone else relieved that Tepper has finally taken over?

Recommended Posts

I agree that the front office, especially Hurney, are on the hot seat because he would never get another job in the league in a million years of Sundays. Doesn't really feel that way with Ron since if we canned him he would probably have another HC job paying him even more in no time.  Its an apples to oranges comparison as far as hot seats are concerned.

This is kind of what I was saying. There’s a belief that contract years and hit seats can make people better. It may have an anecdotal effect but it’s usually not based in fact. People remember going for it and a big season in a contract year and ignore the failures/not going for it glossing over the reality of all the data points that it’s not better or worse than regular seasons.

I don't think stress màkes people better. More times than not it actually hinders performance. Does stress make you take more chances and assume more risk? I think it does. What I see from Ron is that he tends to be conservative and not take chances. When he does go for it on fourth down it is sometimes a calculated risk. Other times he goes with the hot hand and if he thinks we have momentum,  he will take a chance betting on the offense. But those who think that being on the hot seat is the main thing that motivates him isn't paying attention to the facts or the game just repeating what someone else complained about with no evidence.

Thank goodness. We need someone who actually knows what they are doing and has a plan. Right now we don't have a team president, our owner is brand new and we have new coordinators on both sides of the ball.  Hurney may not be the long term solution but right now he is the guy holding all of this together.

Your not serious right?

I watched when I lived in DC as all of us fans were excited about Snyder taking over.  That didn’t work out too well so I will reserve judgement.  So no, I’m not excited.

You are right about Ron he would be hired right off the bat. Hurney doesn't need the job and wasn't lobbying for it. He owns a radio station and is already set for life. Coming back was about redemption. I doubt he cares how hot it is.

Very happy that statue man is out and Tepper is in. I did not think highly of statue man as an owner before the SI expose. I loathed him afterward. But I like Tepper a lot.

Time will tell. Most folks talk partnership, cooperation and lots of great things in pressers. How it actually plays out could be very different. Most folks found out for example that the public perception of Richardson was very different from reality.  Reports on Tepper also said he has a terrible temper, throws things at employees and cusses like a sailor. All things that belie the partnership cooperative convo. Who going to argue with him when he is having a hissy fit.  Most folks have a perceived self image which is often different from the image other people have of them. Many folks in the hedgefund world of cutthroat finances are dicks, narcissists and ego maniacs. I hope he is the exception to the rule. Color me skeptical but hoping he is everything he claims to be. Why doesn't he have minority partners? Does he wants control and doesn't want to cede any power to others or he just hadn't met the right people he wants to work with.

This much I agree on. I work for a hedge fund administrator. The funds are our clients. Some managers are nice to work with. Many are not though, and will bitch you out over small things.

Glad it is over too.  New Chapter and hopefully he instills a bit more concern with winning.

Someone mentioned that he mentioned Rivera and Turner but not Hurney.

I would not be surprised if Hurney is gone after the pre-season (Or sooner).   I think he might bring in a new GM after the season starts to get a idea and grip on the direction of the team.   I wonder if losing Norwell irritated him.
