well in that case then i'm with you. If we don't fix this poo they both need to go. Hurney hired Rivera and they have structured this team together, their success or failure moving forward needs to be tied together.
Ok, let me rephrase my problem with "coaches GM' phrase. I believe there is plenty of teamwork involved, between coach and GM. What I don't like to believe is that the GM does not get any accountability because he is a "coaches GM". Ahh Hurneys gets a free pass on his first 8 years don't count because he got whoever Fox wanted, he will be awesome now because he gets whoever Rivera wants.
What is the wisdom in building a defense around LBers?

Not being able to lock-up Pep or at LEAST get something other than a lousy compensatory 3rd pick KILLED us. No other GM wouldn't have let that player type of player leave without a fight.
Happens. peppers made it basically impossible to get anything for him with his antics. Be mad at his temper tantrum when he left.
Drafting to save jobs Fox/Hurney in 2009/2010 hurts tons more than pep leaving.
