Look kid, when somebody predicts how you're going to respond, you can see that they predicted how you're going to respond, and yet you still respond that way anyway, you pretty much got owned.

But then that's not exactly new for you, is it? Have you found the audio channel on the All-22 film yet? :)

And you keep defending him, how much did you cry when that fossil got fired?

 

your still trying to switch the story around when you were adaent film had commentary LMAO, to the point I embarrassed you.

Same...I’ve never argued that Hurney is a better GM than Gettleman, I just find the double standards quite obnoxious and intellectually dishonest. If it seems like I’m more pro-Hurney, it’s cause he’s our GM and I’m rooting for his success. I couldn’t care less about the GM for another team. You can say “Oh I don’t have to fall in line and root for everything the team does”, which is fine, but to legitimately adopt the mindset that our franchise is doomed because of our GM and/or coach just sounds quite miserable tbh. If I ever felt like I was starting to perpetually harbor that kind of negativity, I would feel inclined to distance myself from the team indefinitely. Again, I’m not saying that this is how other people should feel, but I can’t personally conceptualize or rationalize that kind of behavior.

Hurney is actually a relevant topic given that, unfortunately, he still works here.

Gettleman isn't, yet some people still keep bringing him up. The "why," was explained earlier: because he hurt their little feelings and apparently they want to continue crying about it until the end of time.

At this point, we might as well be starting threads about Bill Polian.

Mr. Scot: I'm above the fray, kid. I'm not mad, you can tell by the :)

Another favorite, the :thinking: when there's nothing actually puzzling.

DG wasn't a bad GM, I'd say he was average, maybe slightly better than. He had his hits and misses in the draft. KB is the we'll never know of his tenure here. He could have been something special, but he just wasn't the same after his knee and the grief of loss. DGs arrogance and people skills were his glaring weakness, his strengths, the ability to put together a competitive team on a bargain budget and get us out of cap hell. He also wasn't a yes man to JR and Rivera. 

Hurney 1.0 had a gift in the first round of the draft, the rest, not so much. He spent recklessly and got owned in draft day trades. His trade with the Bears for Olsen was straight up theft. He left this team in cap hell and had 3 winning seasons in 11. I'd put his tenure at below average to just below. 

It's easy to say DG already had the core put together for him by Hurney and that's true. It's also true that he got Cam by building the worst team in the NFL and Luke was an early pick also. 

If we  could combine DG's ability to find late round and UDFAs, get bargain basement guys to fill in the holes, and manage the cap with Hurney's 1st round drafting ability, personel management, and in season trade robbery together, we'd have an above average to really good GM. 

It's too early to grade Hurney 2.0.

Amused is more like it, primarily because a lot of the anti-Gettleman stuff comes from some of our less than football savvy posters.

(many of the comments in this thread are no exception)

White nights like yourself can be amusing too, such as when you recently rode into a thread to chide me for so savagely pointing out that we were going to a 3-4 defense :)

I'd have a little higher opinion of Gettleman than "average" but this is a fair take.

As for Hurney, for me to have a higher opinion of him than his first go round, he's going to need to show me something that he hasn't shown me yet.

What brought him down to average for me was the ego, and spending 1st rounders on Butler and Shaq when there were glaring other needs, trading up to grab Funch in the 2nd when we already had KB who was very much the same type of receiver, and the albatross contract of Matt Kalil. I didn't have a problem bringing him in, but that kind of contract for a guy that just had a surgically repaired hip was asinine.

What exactly are these double standards you speak of that are quite obnoxious and intellectually dishonest? I’d like to see the list. And do you find comments about Hurney the same way?
