Pat Yasinska's article on firing (Must Read)

47 posts in this topic

The players (especially vets who hit the lottery with hurney) are biased. They also aren't running the business. Their opinions, while interesting, mean nothing as to whether this was the correct decision. I think any outsider can see it was time for hurney to go. The article mentioned a lot of bad things done by hurney and still left a lot out inclding mare and Nakamura. There is just way too much bad and it outweighs the good.

Right call and there wasn't really a wrong time.

Here's how I view the entire situation:

At first I was Happy (No more Hurney Magic)

Then I was unsure of the move

Then as player reactions came out I thought... Oh no, what have we done?

But now... After reading this article and applying some perspective...

Hurney was on his way out anyways... So the timing is irrelevant to me.

In the end, Marty owned it... Should we really be 1-5? Hell no in my opinion.

But when you are the GM, and your OC continues to run the read option... It's your Job and responsibility to correct what needs to be corrected! He failed to do that, and with a bye week to boot.

Do I think it's fair to axe Hurney? No, I don't. Especially with how the refs took that game from us. But this is the reality, and we have to move on, as does this team.

Again, I feel bad for Hurney. He wasn't great, especially since 09. But, prior to that, it could be argued that he was.

My problem with the move is that it serves no purpose for the time being. This was the wrong guy to fire if you wanted to make a statement. Most of the fans and the players don't believe in Rivera/Chud anymore, so why not can them instead. That will send a message more than firing the GM during the season when most likely, he wouldn't be doing anything that affected W/L records at this point.

People can say what they want, but this team does have ENOUGH talent to make it to the playoffs. Coaching is why we are 1-5. There is no reason we shouldn't be 3-3 right now with the team as-is. The coaching sucks. The players want the coaches gone, yet, they're not... And now we have 53 guys playing for a staff they hate.

Oh well... Another lost season.

I'm wondering if Cam is in jeopardy too maybe a year or so down the road

Anyone is in jeopardy if they don't produce. Its the NFL.

Glad to read the housecleaning is just beginning. This has become one of those dumpster fires where the GM/HC/OC/DC all need to be relieved of their duties in due time.

Good for JR!!

This reminds me off the presser after Atlanta had their asses handed to them by New York in the play-offs and Mr. Blank said 'There are no sacred cows, although there might be a few sacrificial lambs' He basically told every assistant coach and coordinator to hit the bricks. He then Hired Koetter and Nolan to run the offense and defense, to let Smitty focus on the team.

Low-and-behold he we are undefeated.

Yep. We really need to follow that blueprint. Christ I hope this staff rebuild is more successful than the last one.

JR said cam will be the last qb of his lifetime he isn't in any danger I'm sure whoever is brought in will be aware of that

No lol

We'd be undefeated too if we had our AFC West opponents on the schedule first.

I am one of the fans who is glad this happened now. My biggest concern was someone this team finished the season strong, everyone was brought back and they go 1-5 , 2-4, etc to start next season, and I have to sit throught this cr*p again waiting and hoping for a better next season.

At least we know that will not be the case, everyone is on notice and at least something is going to be done about this. Whether or not it translates to a turn around time will tell.
