Should we blame Richardson and not Hurney?

50 posts in this topic

We should blame Rivera. All this anti-Hurney poo is pissing me off. Two months ago we were all talking about how talented this team was and how we had one of the most talented offenses in football and how this year's draft class was going to be the best in franchise history.

Now, after the coaching staff screws the pooch, all of a sudden Hurney is the bad guy? I realize Hurney had a big hand in hiring Rivera, but who here wasn't sold on Rivera after that first press conference?

The writer makes some good points here, but all of this is taken from what little press clippings that Jerry has. This is why he should be more vocal with the direction of the team and come out and set the record straight.

I heard a good point on the radio this morning. What if Marty Hurney's only job is to take the heat for Richardson and manage the cap?

Maybe Richardson is just a closet Jerry Jones and doesnt want to stick his neck out. Let me paint a scenario for you....

JR deep in the bowels of BOA sitting behind a large desk in front of a fireplace slowly stroking his cat. With the press of a button Hurney rushes in to nurture JR's every need.

JR tells Hurney to draft that little QB from that mountain school that everyone is talking about. Hurney protests politely but gives in knowing that as long as he takes the brunt of the punishment his "contract" will never expire.

Sound Legit?

Most of the people upset with Hurney aren't screaming for his head because of the crap team we've fielded this season alone. There's his drafting record recently, the stupidity of overpaying not one, but two fuging running backs, his allergy to bolstering obvious holes in talent in FA (and when he did actually try to grab someone of note.. we grabbed a fuging RB/FB hybrid), prioritizing the RB/LB position with our top tier picks, trading away high draft picks (and all the cascading fun it brings in future drafts), a terrible overall record during his tenure, etc. etc.

Saying "omg stupd overacting fanz wants Hurney gon loll" is disingenuous at best.

The "fire Hurney" issue is hardly new.

The fact that it has intensified recently is a result of yet another season wasted.

Hurney is the ultimate decision maker within the organizaton that doesn't have the last name of Richardson.

He has had 12 years to demonstrate his abilities and provide a viable product for public consumption and he has failed miserably.

Time for a change.

It's mostly Hurney. Colin makes sense, but are we supposed to believe that Richardson had a direct hand in drafting past the first round ever except for possibly Armanti? If you asked him today who Jeff Byers is, do you think he would have any clue?

I think JR has more of a say in football operations than we think he does because he's not the Jerry Jones type that just comes out and says "I run poo bitch". I don't think he's iron fisted over the organization but I also believe he has a higher than average level of influence.

Probably, but Byers was drafted by the Broncos.
