Should we blame Richardson and not Hurney?

I'm not a Hurney fan and I have dedicated my share of posts to him that are full of vitriol. This however is not on him. This season and last he has filled positions fo need fairly well and drafted above average. This lackluster season hangs on the coaching staff and the players. You can regurgitate a "why draft Armanti" or "otah was a reach" thread all you want but nobody on this board that has any sense is buying it.

And really, we have so many noob/camfirst/localyokel fanzz in here that are already clueless enough. Stop confusing them with this garbage.

Who hired the coaches

and haha there's no way you can say he "filled positions of need fairly well". Dwan Edwards, Haruki Nakamura, and Josh Norman aren't what I would consider big upgrades.

I do remember them saying that they were going to pick a coach that fit THERE system and do things THERE way this time.

The writer of the article provides no meaningful proof of JRs involvement, just speculation. Hurney's public statements should be taken at face value until there is evidence to the contrary.

Either Hurney lacks the skill to develop a consistently competitive organization or he doesn't have the fortitude to tell JR to stop interfering. Regardless, he is failing miserably at his job and his 12 year track record suggests this organization stands no realistic chance of being successful until he is gone.

The team we love run by a stubborn old man and his elf. 4 winning seasons in 17 years... Just sad...

Hurney isn't the problem...you can replace him with Jesus, but Big Cat still runs the show.

Then you tell the owner he is destroying any chance of his team to be competitive and submit your resignation.

Anyone that values their employees and loves the game of football would not tolerate being part of this three ring circus.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
