Is this a rebuilding year?

No.. We are dealing with same issues of last year. Turnovers. Money has nothing to do with that. A WR would not of fixed our problems.


this is the only one I can really say is a bullshit answer.

whether we're winning or losing it's a rebuilding year, we're basically rebuilding a new core of the team. in '08 with the falcons it was a rebuilding year, and they were winning. rebuilding has more to do with personnel change than just losing most of your games

Cutting alot of veterans and going with a youth movement is pretty much the definition of rebuilding so yeah, I don't know wtf he's talking about but then again he's giving the typical PC answers and not saying all that much.

Reading this thread, makes it very clear how lil the majority of fans know of Jerry Richardson.
Maybe I'm spoiled cause I've been always been a fan.

Fact is, Richardson has never been the type of owner that tries to run the football side of the franchise. He actually let's the guys he hired to do that, take care of that.

Seems like so many fans want to blame the owner so badly, that they just discredit anything that is said by Hurney, or coach Fox.

Richardson will never be a puppeteer like some owners in the league.

Any other year I might agree with you but this year is different.

couldn't agree more, richardson has always let the football & business people do their thing, some people may not know but Hurney has been here since 1998 in some capacity with the front office(he & fox are not a pair)during the seifert era he didn't have much power(seifert was the defacto gm)but since jerry has elevated him, he has for the most part been solid. i do believe that JR is the reason we have gone cheap this year(lockout?new coach?rebuilding?)but Hurney more so than fox is driving the current roster(think fox would prefer some more veterans)

Exactly, I can't think of any other year even when we repllaced a coach and brought in a new one where we wholesale made so many changes and got rid of so many veterans and starters. There may have been a time where we picked up a number of veterans but never purged the team or made so many decisions based on financial reasons.THis was clearly was orchestrated by Richardson due to the CBA.

Yeah Hurney got to shop in the bargain basement and goodwill, but Richardson sent him there and told him how much he could spend.
