he took a good bit after the 2010 season. it's not like this is the first time people have called him out on things.
Glad to see that Mr.Richardson is finally taking some heat for this losing franchise. What took us so long?
granted the criticisms were different at that point, but i think he responded well to them and made a big effort to try and turn things around. he listened to what was being said and did something about it.
i think the same thing is probably going to happen this time around. i don't know how it will shake out, but i'm hoping that the result is a better GM that does a better job of getting good personnel in here without being narrow minded as to where they come from and that this GM does a better job of holding personnel accountable.
fwiw...the comments made by hurney in a couple interviews done early last week sounded like he intended to do a better job managing the coaching staff, realizing that they weren't using the well and the players themselves weren't carrying their weight. maybe hurney and richardson got ahead of this.
only way we can know for sure is how the team comes out of the bye and what they do with the rest of the weeks they have in the season.
