That's 24 guys you listed with better records than Hurney. And that's not even counting guys who just recently took over as GM, like Reggie McKenzie who was director of player personnel for the Packers and won two Super Bowls with them before taking the head job for the Raiders this year.

And then there's this...



Cinci's GM is also the owner so he's not going to fire himself and Arizona is just retarded. In general teams don't let guys hang around as long as Hurney if they can't put together winning teams, especially when their results have been declining (try bringing up the winning % for the last 5 years).

Your post actually shows definitively that we SHOULD get a new GM, not the opposite.


Spielman and Allen are still in the nfl. their current win percentages are terrible with their new teams.11 of the ones you mentioned I already stated were better than Hurney based of record.

That leaves 9 that you need to look at in the proper context. Jones in Dallas and Peterson in Kansas were their for 20+ years and had rode some nice waves but recent history is not kind to them

Now we are down to 7 and in the proper context(length of employment, divison,etc.) they are not any better than Hurney or even still in the NFL

I tell you what, even Marty Hurney's momma would tell you there are better odds than that....

Flawed math. You calculated there is less than 1% chance of finding better.


Hurney is a decent GM....that is what his resume shows. What we don't know is how much JR has in all of this....

But the trouble some flaw at this point is unlike with Fox....Hurney doesn't seem to be building a roster that is ideal for what his current coaches are wanting to do. Maybe Hurney isn't so much a coaches GM....maybe he and Fox both believed in the same things


He had a top 5 offense last year. They improved the entire offense from last year. We had 1 bad game this year and all of a sudden his players dont fit?

The Defense had a ways to and has shown marked improvement with players returning from injury and new additions. 6 new starters in all and everyone appears to be an upgrade as well.

Since he has been here which of the 63 different gm's hired would you prefer? I named 4. Even if you somehow find a way to justify 10 more, thats still 22%. Elite GM's don't grow on trees. Hurney's not elite but he's above average and if he builds something here with Rivera his status can only go up from here.

While it sucks that we have 2 of the very best in our division, you can't use that as justification to hire a new one.That strategy has not worked for the Bucs so far. Also the Falcons had to go through some hardships themselves before they found Dimitroff.

Look at it this way out 63 different GM's in the last 10 years,Hurney has proven to be the 12th best at worst. This puts him inside of the top 20%.

In addition an argument can be made that Hurney has had the least talented coach of every GM ranked above him. While he is responsible for hiring the head coach, I don't think Fox can use lack of talent as his reason for his demise here. 2010 was a lame duck year(Jerrys decision, so if you credit Fox that year back then you must for Hurney as well).

Right now he gets a do over with Rivera. If this combo sucks then we have nothing to lose by parting ways with Hurney. If this combo comes out does well then we have quite a lot to lose. Lets give this combo 2 full seasons and then see where were at.

I just think if we replace Hurney things will get worse before they get better. I think this current roster is on the brink of something and no point in starting over with an unproven GM at this point.


even if he is 12th best, you are still outside the playoffs looking in. i just dont understand how anybody can defend some of his decisions that he has made for the last 5 years. if him and Rivera dont get it done, than im sure a clean house of FO and coaching staff will happen and should. how many GMs have hired 3 or coaches for the same team?

i dont think getting rid of Hurney will make us worse, i mean poo we have been rebuilding since 2009-2010. maybe a new GM will divide some of the areas that are rich in talent/ depth to bring in more talent at the positions that are not. i have been riding with Hurney but i no longer can after this last offseason.

In My op, I stated if Hurney does not make it with Rivera then its time to move on.

If you pay attention to this team, Hurney has fielded some damn good rosters. We made nfc championship twice, superbowl once. Things went downhill after our 08 playoff meltdown and we should have made a head coach change then. Unfortunately Richardson wanted to prep for them an entire season. that 2-14 record was the worst we have seen under hurney. If you throw it out then his win percentahe jumps up 6%. Don't forget all the years where we had unfortunate injury bugs that jades our record.

Either way he's the GM for now and I think we have very good team right now. If it turns out I am wrong and we lay an egg then I will jump on the hurney hate bandwagon.

How good do you think we are right now on paper??

Since going to the Vikings in '06

Spielman season record: 46-51 (47% winning percentage), 2 playoff appearances, 1 playoff win

Hurney during that same time period

season record 43-54 (44% winning percentage), 1 playoff appearance, zero playoff wins



Yup, Spielman has been terrible with his new team.... yet still better than Hurney.

panther4life,

you're starting to throw in your opinion with your facts...

I do agree that Hurney should go with Rivera if they both fail though

lol so now we completely turn the arguement around to whoever has the better roster is the GM we would want? If that's the case then there are a whole lot of rosters around the NFL in better shape than ours.

Remember, you are the one that said he had been terrible with his new team. But you want to keep Hurney who has been even worse over that same period?

A new GM isn't going to do much of anything to change the course of *this* season. They earn their money building the team during the offseason.

And honestly, if we followed the logic you are using in this thread we'd still have Fox and Delhomme.

He should have been let go along with Fox. If he can start stringing together a series of winning seasons and prove me wrong then great. If not then he needs to go, pretty simple.

I have tried reading that gobbledy-**** 3 times now and I still don't get where you came up with the fact Hurney is #12, why that's good enough, and why you failed to mention his winning percentage of 43% since 2007 which among the worst in the league.

Joseph Goebbels, Fox News, Baghdad Bob, Mike Rucker...none of these guys have anything on the misleading propaganda in the first post.
