Would you? What if your employer specifically wanted you to produce the results largely how you have?
Hurney is doing literally exactly what JR wanted him to. Now, in the next couple years if we don't get results, then I think Hurney's job is in jeopardy, because Hurney picked this coach, this quarterback, and this entire team pretty much, and if it fails to produce it's on him.
But JR basically gave him a free pass for the last few years. Having actually talked to JR about the subject of personnel moves when he responded to an email, I would be absolutely astonished if Hurney lost his job any time in the next two years, because going into 2009 JR decided to give Fox "one last chance." After that, they exploded the roster so they knew some of what they had for the next coach in terms of youth.
I agree with what Happy Panther said, this all starts at the top.
edit: Also, I don't know the validity of it, but some have claimed that JR himself was calling the shots on the Armanti trade. I have not seen evidence of this and if anyone does I'd like to see it, but that was a common rumor around here the last couple years.
Owners are not talent evaluators, at least for the most part, so I would hope that JR had nothing to do with the AE mudhole.
