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.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
