CMC has A/C joint separation in shoulder

The CMC extension came more than 3 months after the Rhule hiring.  Of course it was a collective decision between at least the GM, head coach, and owner...that shouldn't be a contentious statement.  You think Tepper gives Hurney unilateral authority to spend tens of millions of dollars from his pocket?  Maybe for small fish signings, but not for a $64 million extension.  Obviously Hurney, Rhule, and Tepper would have come together to decide if CMC is in their long-term plans.

But if common sense isn't enough, here's a quote from a Sports Illustrated article about Rhule's input on the CMC extension:

And if you think oh that's just coachspeak and Rhule sugarcoating an extension that he wasn't happy about and wasn't on board with, here's an excerpt from another article before the CMC extension:

https://catcrave.com/2020/04/10/matt-rhule-endorsement-christian-mccaffrey-contract/

You don't make a collective decision in three months. Rhule was still learning the team at that point and negotiations had already been done. Yes he might have been in the loop but that's about it. We should have left the deal the way it was and delt him. He's going to be wasted on a rebuilding team.

Tepper & Hurney hired Rhule.

Tepper & Hurney & Rhule made CMC decision together.

Tepper always retained final decision making authority. 

That's just how it works in Tepper's world.

PS...not making any apology for Hurney.  I'm as surprised as anyone he has stuck in Tepper's organization but folks need to understand he does not have traditional "GM" powers like a John Lynch or Brandon Beane for example.  Has the title, not the power.

Tepper has always said Hurney took over in hiring Rhule and he was along for the ride. 

Hurney made the decision to sign both Shaq and CMC and Tepper and Rhule were kept in the loop but that's it. 

This is what a GM does and it's why I will always distrust this process until we have a GM that doesn't have a track record for losing.

As I’ve said in another thread, I’ve suffered a grade 4 Ac joint separation and it’s freaking horrible. I’ve had one surgery and gonna need more by the looks of it. Hopefully his is just a grade 1 or 2. They need to just sit him for the rest of the year.

Complete nonsense.

Tepper never cedes that kind of control when his capital is at stake.
