Mike Lombardi has 'inside info' on why Hurney was fired

76 posts in this topic

- kinda may have bought time because if they fired 2 many fo guys at one time the team couldnt function (who reports to who and all that) so all huney did was buy time for em until they have a plan for the rest of management to react and run the team.

They all need to be fired...scouting, staff, GM etc...

New direction. New blood.

I'd be pissed too, if i spent 170+ million on players on two years and seeing them midshandled like they are, I'd fire everyone who was involved and start over from the ground up

The obvious topic of speculation will be 'who did he want gone?'

Probably the most obvious....I'd say Chud or Rivera.

Or

He wanted Cam to have help that suited our scheme and he wanted Hurney to part with some of his recently overpaid core

I got this feeling when watching the Rivera presser. I wonder what JR's goal for him is...Finish 8-8 and you can keep your job? That's not gonna happen...

Doesn't make since to me because if JR "wanted someone gone" he would have fired them right after firing Hurney right?

No, Hurney ending up being the "someone" after he bit the bullet.

You wonder if JR wanted a single backfield rather than rotating our 2 RB's, thats why they made this "Power running game" move after Hurney was gone.

Maybe Hurney didnt want to admit the contract he gave DWill was a mistake and that Stewart could handle all the snaps at RB

Jr wanted to have Chud fired and return to the Fox era power run game. Hurney wouldnt fire him. Hurney got the axe. Rivera tells JR that Chud can utilize the power run game. Rivera gets his second chance. If he fails, our next coach will be a power run game coach like fox.
