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

76 posts in this topic

He did not say that and I seriously doubt it is Rivera. If Richardson wanted the coach gone he'd simply be gone and he surely would not still be there now. Think about it.

I would assume it is player related.

The highest paid player on the team maybe?

The offensive captain?

Both?

Personel, coaching staff move, meh.

JR is sick of being a laughing stock of the NFL on par with the Cleveland and jacksonvilles of the world.

Let's all pray some competent people are brought in to reverse the train wreck this organization has been since the Arizona ass kicking 2008 Post Season.

Or maybe JR told Hurney that Rivera was out and Hurney told JR it was his fault for not having the right personnel?

Id like to have Lombardi as a talent evaluator... He was all over Kolb being a bust and not understanding the hype outta Philly...all over Gabberts shaky footwork and Pocket Panic..

All GMs have bad moments and the best hit 50% of their picks..Hurney was like at 45% (avg) in the last 7 years.. Yeah he was the Raiders GM but is that fair to any GM wile the crypt Keeper was alive?!

I would speculate that JR was not specific--does not micromanage that much, but he knew changes were needed. MH did not know what to do. He was fairly strapped, due to his shopping spree with Daddy's credit card a few years back. when he rewarded all of his draft picks that have not busted with contracts.

Did he really think that there was $24M+ on Dwill's tires? Made as much sense as the delhomme deal. Did he really need to pay Charles Johnson, a 1-hit wonder at the time, $76 million? Did he really think Godfrey was good enough to give him a big deal?

Marty's moves are as bad as Matt Millen's.

If you're going to spend a fortune on 2 RBs, then you should build a dominant run blocking O-line and run the ball a lot. We don't have a powerful run blocking O-line, so our RBs and all that money is going to waste. The loss of Otah is part of the problem, but we really should have used FA and the draft to add more than just one starter with very good run blocking ability. Campbell was known to have a learning disability, but we traded for him anyway. He hasn't even been activated all season, yet he started at OG for the Raiders. Why not start him at RG? Or RT? My guess is that our coaching staff has failed to teach him our offense. Well these failures and bad decisions, combined with unfocused players, has resulted in a total disaster of a season. Rivera is right in saying our O-line is getting beaten up front, and it's his fault. He knew Williams and Hangerter were weak in run blocking, and Kalil is undersized (although usually effective). He had every opportunity to pick up the offensive linemen we needed to have a dominant rushing attack. He failed to do so, and now his job is on the line.

That's some serious food for thought. I'm not sure if I want Rivera to get to .500 or if I want to see this team blown up and start anew. Which ever gets us to a SB and a SB victory I suppose.
