Why Was Hurney Fired?

If I started this topic, it wouldve been up 5 minutes before some longtime Huddle boob told me to "go kill myself"

Go Kill Yourself

...but, not really.

JR was undoubtedly pissed about the 1 and 5 start, and probably would have been ready to fire Rivera had there been someone on staff capable of finishing out the year as an interim. Then to see DWill, with his big contract, run the ball just 2 times...well that was probably the straw that broke the camel's back. JR realized there was a major disconnect between how the FO was building the team and how the coaches were using them. Hurney was the guy that hired Rivera and the guy that built the team, so he became the 1st step in blowing up the FO/coaching staff.

I think JR would still fire RR tomorrow if he thought he could replace him with an effective interim, but that's just not an option right now.

Thought Joe Person's interview w/ Hurney was telling when Hurney said JR asked him after the Dallas loss "How did the Panthers get to 1-5, and what were they going to do to get better?" Hurney said he had a hard time answering that. Enough said.

When the head of football operations can't tell the guy that just spent zillion$$ to be a winner how such a dismal start to the season will improve, it's time for a change. I'm sure it was painful for both, but necessary.

I guess I was more portraying a non-football related issue that caused it.

Maybe if this season is shot and we start looking to next season he didn't want Hurney there with any input. Get a new guy to work on the draft and free agency now with all the recruiting trips and what not.

I believe you fire him now to eliminate Rivera's excuses. Now it's on Rivera to turn this team around without being able to blame Hurney. He's making the personnel decisions so if the team fails its all on him.

I swear I just read this thread

Sorry, I didn't see that thread from yesterday. But, mine is portraying the 'conspiracy' is not football related. Is there a possibility or was Jerry fed up at a random time in the season.
