If you want to focus just on 2010 and 2011 drafts, sure. But Hurney was excellent from 2002-2009 - even without many big-name free agents, we never were worse than 7-9.
lol "excellent" from 2002-2009? you sure about that?
you know that timeframe includes trading back into the first to draft jeff otah and sending a first round pick off for everette brown right? and the delhomme extension? and the peppers fiasco?
all of you who dogpile on dave gettleman for not drafting a starter in literally every round of every draft should take a hard look at some hurneymagic:
most of his drafts are seriously like one solid/perhaps even elite player + a bunch of crap that's not even good enough to stay on the team as depth. if gettleman drafts like that for the next decade then yes by all means fire his ass.
