Coaches like RR love their vets, and will play them over playing younger players like Bersin and Philly, especially if their job is on the line.


DG is taking control of that, in the only way he can.  He wants to see if the younger players can rise up to the occasion.


I am of the opinion that DG has never really loved RR, but they had a good relationship, and DG trusted RR's football knowledge....I don't think that's the case any longer.




RR will likely be working for the Chargers next season, and Shula will be flipping burgers.  DG is about to clean house.


interesting. i thought it would have been the opposite. Avant was speaking out against the HC and can't have a mutiny especially from a guy who is as likable as Avant in the locker room.


I guess i can see it both ways. A poster on here has mentioned that Shula has been good as gone since about 3 or 4 weeks ago from a source of his who called smitty and gross way before it was official.


I think you're right though. This offseason if nothing else will be exciting as hell.

Rivera said it has nothing to do what Avant said after the game.

I read he was cut because he questioned the play calling. I believe he did the same in Philly.

No he said he didn't fit what the Eagles were trying to do. He took that upon himself

He was known as one of the most friendly and team oriented guys in Philly.  They loved him.  


If Philly can love the guy...someone legit has to be going wrong for him to speak out.  




these were my initial thoughts and I said "are you fuging kidding me" out loud

im tired of ppl saying he could have spent that 13 million in other areas of drastic need when signing that type of talent would cost more than the 14 million guaranteed and future dead money once subpar talent on the market would have eventually been cut. Hardy was the gamble to keep this team competitive for one more transition year and give us back to back winning seasons.

Hardy is one of the most talented players in the league who still hadn't hit his ceiling and he fuged us majorly

Don't know that yet in reality.

Him being hired and told you have to straighten out x, y, and z is a job assignment. Not loving all Hurney guys doesn't mean he won't overly show love to his guys once they get established.

This was his first real offseason. You could easily argue what hurt us most was the front offices decision to "over invest " at one postion (DE) at a clear detriment to the rest of the team. Being against the Hardy tag can be viewed for the same reasons as being against signing 2 guys to featured RB money

He gave no long term money to hardy. 13 million is for one year.

Saying he could have invested in oline, special teams isn't entirely accurate. Maybe if he could have given one year contracts to those guys maybe. But all in all it would have been more than the 13 million to garner the talent that hardy would have been.

And Kenjon barner. I know that's a sixth round pick but....

Last year was such a complete and total success in almost all signings it set such an incredible expectation. There is only so much talent to go around in an offseason at a dumpster diving price.

One mistake I would say he made was not signing obviously athletic, hungry talent that was not I. The right system to succeed. A la ginn, Mitchell. And then we had an opportunity to sign a talent like mikell who was a top five safety statistically. Options like that weren't really available this offseason.

Say we signed Collins who went to tampa that was 15 million guaranteed compared to 13. And hardy is obviously the more talented player. So would you rather have that 5 mill a year for 5 with 15 gauranteed for a tackle that sucks balls (and was basically the cheapest or most reasonable option) or an elite talent that could mask an entire position groups deficiencies?

This season was lost because of hardys poo, cams surgery/injuries and Ron reverting back to his former self for the most part

This was very true back in the Hurney days. I remember the 49ers were super pissed after we signed DWill to his retarded contract because they were in the middle of trying to resign Gore and it jacked his asking price way up. Hell, we gave CJ $20-30 million more than the next team bidding on him could even afford. There wasn't even a negotiation, Hurney just plopped down that massive deal and CJ signed it immediately. Reportedly, "wow" was CJ's and his agents response seeing the money they offered.


With Gettleman I'm not really worried that kind of thing is going to happen, he's trying to set the team up for long term success and is very conscious of how contracts hit the cap in the future. I expect there will be quite a bit of back and forth with Cam (probably a lot more than many fans will like and a lot will freak out). But in the end the deal will get done at a more reasonable price.


god hurney was such a fuging dumbass.


i mean i've never been involved in anything sports related at a professional level and you just know that that is super, super fuging bad business.


i think hurney literally thought of these players as family.
