What struck me about the interview is his involvement with the team. It sounds like Marty sought his ok prior to the Olsen deal. I always thought he was more hands-off.
Also given his comments to Clausen and Goodson, it's obvious that he doesn't pull any punches when talking with the players.
That was one of the best interviews I have ever read on Richardson...
Still blaming Fox.
Richardson has Seifert'd Fox! :lol:
Damn, not pulling any punches is he? Has to be the most candid interview I've ever read of his.
I also have seen this from Hurney as well and obviously from Rivera. It seems being more open is another way we're trying to distance ourselves from Fox.
Big cat is like that rich grandfather that always surprised you with something special on christmas
I enjoyed the interview. I dont take as much fox hate from it, as many do. There were issues, but this we knew last year.
I enjoyed reading about the olsen trade, his relationship with goodson, and once again, reading the passion he has for this team and franchise. How anybody can think this guy doesnt want a championship, is beyond me.
Richardson is sort of a dick calling Clausen Doughboy. That cant help with Jimmy's confidence. sort of funny though.
I enjoyed the interview. Thanks for posting.
Jerry did seem more candid in this interview, even if a lot of this was fluff.
Sounds like Jerry lectured Steve and straightened his butt out a little is what he was getting at with: "He talked for 5, I talked for 15." That is a level of insight that he is revealing to Observer readers that I think is admirable in JR.
Also very revealing about just how tense the situation was last year between JR and Fox (and Fox and the players). Jerry blames Fox for certain underperforming players.
Why did Sorenson not point out the irony that Jerry and Marty cut all the veteran leadership? Fox was blaming them for taking away all the players that bought into his style of coaching. Fox has a point.
So does Jerry. All I have to say is...I am ready to see some wins!
Its also ironic that Jerry claims he had no idea the season would get that bad and produce only 2 wins, yet we land the most athletic QB to come out of college in a generation, had plenty of cash to retain our high profile FA, and have labor peace for the next 10 years. WHile the situation has the appearance of an accident, it really seems like a calculated move on JR's part to burn down the castle and start over.
2-14 hurt, but Jerry is doing what he said he would do. I think we can win 6-7 games this year. Next year we need to get to the playoffs.
Bizarre interview and bizarre man.
Sorensen is almost completely useless at this point.
I think your adding to the preception that Clausen has no confidence if you feel the man who is paying him his salary feels he's a bit soft. If Clausen can't take that comment in stride, then he really doen't need to be a QB.;)
meh, Clausen laughs when you poke him in the belly. Means nothing.
