The Shaq contract pretty much confirms Tepper is JR 2.0

Recommended Posts

Name one, just one team who has had success by deploying half measures.. You know what I’m talking about, the same crap we have been doing the last decade. HALF MEASURES. Keep the HC, fire the GM (Hurney) or fire the GM but keep the HC (Gettleman) HALF MEASURE. For the love of god can we just never have true fresh start. Why is it so hard to fire Hurney? Make no mistake, The new Shaq contract was Hurney way of saying he is safe and not going anywhere for the forseeable future. Why can’t we be the Bills? They brought in new HC/new GM at the same time and it’s worked wonders. But alas, we are the team of mediocrity and half measures.

I don't want to say it's so but it's looking that way. Keeping Hurney is like keep JR.

Half measures NEVER work in football nor in life for that matter. I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again, I do not care one bit Hurney can draft in the first round because he is so horrible in every other facet of the job that it far outweighs all the good he does in the first round anyway. So pretty much you keep a GM who will forever draft pro bowlers once a year but keep having losing records.

Because it’s what incompetent owners and football teams do. I would not be the least bit surprised if Fewell is our new DC and Shula our new OC. Firing Rivera was just a publicity stunt, this team will look exactly the same next year as Tepper hires a yes man HC, mark my words

Maybe Hurney is staying until the Steelers gm’s contract is up after the draft. Maybe Shaq is a 25 year old LB who fits in both a 3-4 and 4-3 that never has to leave the field, and is someone we want to build around.

Shaq is a role player, a dispensable one, he’s not a CMC or Luke Kuechly that you sign long term to a big contract. Can be easily replaced in the off season by a cheap FA 0n a one year deal. Should have let him walk. He’s good but not that good, he’s more like a AJ Klein type player.. Good but easily replaceable

Some of y’all may want to get comfy with the probability that Luke ain’t gonna be here after two years. And Shaq is the future and whoever else we draft here in the next couple of years to replace Luke. 
 

I don’t feel like this was just a straight up Hurney move. Tepper obviously signed off on it and you have to know they have started discussions about who the young core is going to be going forward.

So we gave above average but not elite guy top 10 money.  Is he a top 10 LB?  Did he earn this contract?  Tepper couldn’t have approved this or maybe he is all talk.

The simple fact Hurney is making future contract decisions during the season should tell you all you need to know about him. I like that we locked down Shaq, but during the season? That was basically Hurney saying I’m still in charge bitch.

We don't operate like a good NFL team is supposed to and rarely have since our first season.
