Laugh if you want but it is all true. JR is a dud of an owner who doesn't give a rat's ass about winning, just show me the money.
And again, people don't get it.
Everyone who has any experience actually working with Jerry Richardson would tell you he cares a great deal about winning. He's also hardly a miser given that he's about the only owner who didn't lay off a single person from his team's staff during the lockout. Lots of owners did just that to save costs, but Richardson chose instead to take care of his employees. The whole dumbass notion that he's just some Scrooge who doesn't care about winning is something only the uninformed hold on to. That's never been the problem.
The problem isn't motive. It's execution.
His biggest missteps have included giving his son Mark a prominent position on the team, Dom Capers full control, handing the reins to George Seifert, hiring a GM that wasn't a football guy, staying loyal to that GM even through consistently bad results (largely because that GM was loyal to him), disastrously bad PR during the lockout and coach hiring processes and fostering an 'inmates run the asylum' atmosphere by telling Jeff Davidson he wasn't even allowed to talk to Steve Smith.
Richardson absolutely wants to build a winner, but he's done a lousy job trying, generally by choosing the wrong people for their jobs.
Happily, I think he finally got it right with Dave Gettleman, and I believe if Gettleman has enough power (to which the cut of Steve Smith would testify affirmative) then he can right the ship.
Might take time and might hurt along the way, but it could happen.
