Only one, though. Your choices are...

- Head Coach Ron Rivera
- General Manager Marty Hurney
- Director of College Scouting Don Gregory

Who stays? Who goes? And why?

As a follow up, who has the greater chance of actually being fired in the real world?

And no, firing Jerry Richardson is not an option. I am, however, open to alternate suggestions like Chudzinski, McDermott, etc.

Marty Hurney gets the boot for me. He is the reason we have made so many bad draft picks and trades over the last several years.

fire hurney and the new GM would likely gut the staff. so he's the guy.

despite the questionable crop of players, the team still has the talent and ability to be competitive. rivera has failed to make to make it happen.

I would have replaced Hurney 5 years ago.

No coach could sustain any success with an endless stream of roster building blunders.

We've seen 6 + years of failures by the GM, he's not going to change. At least there is some hope that Rivera can learn to manage a game.

not convinced at all that hurney should continue in his job. i fear what could follow in his footsteps, but with the right or at least a better GM, things should improve all across the board.

for coaching staff, i want to see the rest of the season to see what they do to turn things around...if anything.

whichever coordinator doesn't help get things right should be fired before rivera. murphy would be on top of my list to get the axe. probably mcdermott as well. the D has been playing too soft and loose. i'm less than thrilled with chud's ability to game plan and adjust.

it's just too early to make a call for me. i'm not happy with the hole they've dug. i expect mistakes and failures to happen. what is going to be the deal maker for me is how they respond to this failure of a season so far. if they fail to respond in a positive way, they get the axe at the end of the season.

Rivera. The team has enough talent to compete, they just don't. Hurney's not drawing up the game plan, he's not making halftime adjustments, and he's not motivating the squad to play at their peak level. Rivera could also tell Chud to call more running plays, or get Olsen more involved, etc...
