Don't you wish sometimes commentators when they were trying to play up our read-option pre-games would have just been honest and called it for what it was...something that just wasn't going to work?

Not gonna lie, pretty shocked he got fired today. I know he wasnt the best GM and didnt make all the right moves but a part of me feels bad for him.

I see this as really more a long term philosophical and draft failure. Richardson is primarily responsible for some of the long-term contracts. He often makes decisions based on his heart, and rewards loyalty and work ethic to a fault. That's a business philosophy that helped him make a great deal of money. Don't criticize Hurney for DeAngelo's deal. That was Jerry. Criticize him for trading draft picks and then wasting the ones we kept. Contrary to what some have suggested, I don't think Rivera is in jeopardy unless we end up winning fewer than 5. I see this move, at least partly, as a vote in favor of your head coach over the guy who picked his players. For example, we've wasted a lot of draft value on two guys who were picked basically as return men, and Ron has made quite clear (through keeping both on the bench or inactive) that he has zero faith in both. DeAngelo isn't playing. They tried to send Otah packing in exchange for a ham sandwich. That's a big message to the front office, and I'm inclined to think Richardson is going to give Ron a chance to see what he can do. But the difficulty is that it takes a lot of time to unwind some of the garbage deals we've given out and to bring in enough guys to make a difference.

Also consider that some free agents may be reluctant to play for an owner who is seen as maybe the most Goodell-aligned owner in the league. Money talks, and Jerry has a decent reputation as being supportive of his players, but it doesn't help that Jerry was a jerk in the negotiations.

Well I guess that conversation before the draft really endeared JR to Cam, cause I never thought that this would happen.

Should of been done a long time ago. For him to put so much emphasis on drafted players and to consistently have poor drafts and gamble away future draft picks was inexcusable. Not to mentioned all the wasted money in free agency. He was horrible at the one thing he emphasized most.

JR might be controlling but he wants this team to win. The "Plain" is officially over.

Good observation.I agree that this is a pass for Rivera.JR once was quoted as saying there is no more important relationship than between owner and coach.I personally think that Rivera and Chud share much of the teams blame with the exception of some of the talent we are carrying.

Im truley sorry it has come to this - Marty Hurney seems like a nice guy - probably not cut out to be a gm, and hes taken the fall for a lot of crap that he had NO control over.
