Hurney called Pep's bluff, and lost. It's that simple.

it was a no-win

it was either that fiasco or let him walk and people would probably be even more pissed than they were.

Our dumbass FO made it so we couldn't resign/extend Stew.

To do so would commit about 25 or more million per year to the offensive backfield, including Cam after he resigns, which will be during the 2013/2014 season offseason.

Pure silliness.

Sorry, I was wrong, the cap hit would most likely be well above 32 million for Cam, Stew, and DWill, during the 2014 season, maybe more.

It was not a no win. Peppers said many times he wanted out, Hurney wouldn't listen, Pep then started sabotaging the process. Hurney got played.

P.S. It is not Hurney's job to worry about what the fans think, his job is to field a championship level football team.

How would letting otah go not help?

how would it help? dude's barely making over 1mil this year. can't really see the benefit of letting him go without at least seeing how he can do through the offseason and if he can win his spot back from bell.

peppers sabotaged the process the moment he went public with it dude. that was also the last year of his contract and a trade wasn't going to happen unless he was franchised. yes it's true in retrospect that perhaps letting him walk in the first place or rescinding the tag after he refused to sign would have been the better idea but it sure as poo didn't look like the smart thing then.

there's no confirmed story about what was going on prior to peppers going public about it after the 2009 playoffs. we can assume stuff based on the contract he turned down after the 2007 season but none of the "connected" people even were talking about it that way then.

If Stewart wants to stay AND Hurney wants him here they will pay the man...we are talking about Marty Hurney. The guy has no problem paying for players that he wants to stick around. I wouldn't be surprised if we took the newly aquired cap space (7.5 million?) and tried to get a deal done soon.

Man that dwill deal happened last season, get over it. I was mad about it too, but it didn't change poo. Besides we needed him. We have stew this season atleast, which is why i feel we need to make it count.

The defense is a far bigger concern than our backfield.

Didn't CJ make something crazy like $34MM this year? That has to be front loaded money.
