Hurney's performance has been enough to get him fired, however. I doubt JR is getting involved in the drafting of players. So, we spend all of our cap room re-signing the core and all we need is a few good drafts. Hurney knows that the draft is how he is evaluated (he used to be good with contracts), and he has not drafted players to compliment the veterans JR wanted re-signed.
Hurney knows that cutting Clausen, Edwards, etc. reflects poorly on him. He said Edwards is on a three-year plan and speaks as if he is progressing according to plan. Really? Fox HATED the Clausen and Edwards picks--he wanted a WR and DT.

Here is an excerpt: "Fans need somebody to blame. He's the obvious choice. I'd give him the rest of this season."
Anytime the fans need someone to blame, as they have in 7 of the past 8 years, it should be the general manager. I found this answer a bit tame considering his Interview was slanted criticism. He caught Hurney in a lie, quoted Hurney quoting his mother about toughness, and made him stick to his guns about paying Stewart and WIlliams a ton after quoting their statistics. He exposed Hurney as one who is unwilling to change or admit errors.
If we lose another three or four games before sniffing a win, Hurney will not be able to go out to dinner in North or South Carolina.

DeCosta would be my first choice, then maybe Hughes

He just needs a QB, and to not hire a tired old coach in Romeo.
