I think Hurney's biggest mistake was viewing players as idols, friends, and family. He wasn't giving a beat up MLB a new deal. He was giving THE Jon Beason a new deal. He had a fan's loyalty to his players. Good GMs need to view players as a commodity, not a person. The good organizations aren't afraid to toss out a star player like moldy bologna.

Hurney was a well respected writer, Joe is just a tool.

 

and yet Darrin Gannt was fired and replaced by him. Makes me wonder if his daddy was in a fraternity with somebody important.

I wonder who Hurney passed the "go on wfnz and talk apologetically after horrible/pathetic week one losses" torch to when Jerry Magoo fired him

Maybe it's gonna be Danny Morrison!

Hurney was taken into the Redskins front office by Bobby Beathard, one of the best GMs of his day. He started in the PR department, but eventually made it into football operations via the salary cap management angle.

Now, had he continued being just an accountant, that might have been for the best. Unfortunately, Richardson put him in a role that required player evaluation skills, something with which he had no real experience.

And here we are...

I do wish someone could give me the reasons why the Panthers can hire a coach and have immediate success. Thereafter it's a diminishing return. Check our history out. They start good to excellent and then dive to nothing. Siefert did it in two years, the record. Rivera I will admit is not starting off with a bang but we'll still have to see if these first years are not his best. I hope DG turns this poo around.

Yeah but John Fox/Hurney made 7-9 a bad season. There was a time when we hoped and prayed for 7 wins in the late 90s.

Do you think he has tried to put a good team on the field? or do you think he has tried to swindle money from the fans? Lets get to brass tax here and quit hiding what you really want to say.

 

Just speak your emotions loud and clear. Tell me how Richardson is a Megavillain due to be in the next Bond film. Im betting they over play the accent but they'll have to give him some scars or something to look meaner. The whole glove on the hand and kitty thing has already been used.

 

Look who's emotional.

 

JERRY'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMMIT

 

I've said exactly what I wanted to say. 4 winning season in 18 years and it's not looking stellar this year due to his unwillingness to eat a contract.

:P

 

 

Mmmhmm. . .  like I asked before,

 

 

 

Is Richardson trying to swindle people out of their money or has he been trying to put a good team on the field?

 

 

 

Lets see if you can answer it rationally instead of projecting your emotional weaknesses on me.
