On the Cheap...another wasted season brought to you courtesy of Richardson

Let's go back in time.... to the year 2010. I know it seems a long time ago but that is where our story begins. John Fox is not extended and the writing is on the wall. It seemed everyone knew Fox was done in Carolina but we kept him anyway. Jerry Richardson made the comments about obligation to stockholders and firing a coach and hiring another would affect his bottom line.

 

Fast forward to 2013.

Same scenario - An owner who has displayed a reluctance to make changes and fix mistakes that might cost him. We have to pay for his mistakes. Jerry is made of teflon. Great person. Smart Businessman. Worthless Owner.

 

So it's another wasted season because our owner doesn't want to have to pay a fired coach a salary. It's all about the bottom line...and that bottom line is not winning. That takes a back seat to profitability.We had to pay for a stadium renovation because this owner is so cheap he won't even fire lame duck/inept coaches.

We missed out on a lot of great coaches over the last several years by keeping guys around who shouldn't have been kept. First two names (of guys we missed) that come to mind would be Harbaugh (who we didn't even entertain....thanks Jerry!), and the coach who was tailor made for our Quarterback Chip Kelly....

Jerry Richardson is the boneless hot wing of owners?

He spends plenty of money, just on the wrong things.

 

Not cheap, just stupid buys

3 wasted seasons.

 

3 wasted seasons of Cams career. Smitty might as well retire this week.

 

Richardson will continue to hire defensive minded coaches and never really develope Cam. Really is a shame.

 

 

 

It's been over 15 years, but, can I go back to being a 49ers fan?

They got their ass kicked last night so you're screwed.

Harbaugh wouldn't have come here in a million years.

Kelly will be as successful as Spurrier was in the NFL.

Richardson isn't the problem.

On a day like today I don't want to make sweeping generalizations.  But this franchise has become a bottom feeder in the NFL.

 

That is the sad reality right now, as much as I don't want it to be.  And Richardson's decisions over the past 5 years are as responsible for this as anything else.

Are you kidding dude? JR's cheapness in 2010 directly correlates with where this franchise is at right now. His refusal to accept better than mediocrity last year and hire a GM who didn't demand a new HC is why we're in this place now. Another wasted season and it starts at the very top and trickles down man....
