did hurney torpedo himself with teddy bridgewater?

very curious about the timing here. tepper's comments about having differences in approach - marty with a "traditional" approach and tepper more data-driven - make me wonder if bridgewater himself wasn't a fulcrum for hurney's future one way or another.

could data analytics have suggested bridgewater was going to be forgettable? plenty here will tell you so.

could hurney have chosen teddy as his hill to die on, betting the house on his approach and failing spectacularly?

a mid-season firing like this, as well as tepper's comments, suggest some kind of flash point. i can't help but think that flash point was teddy.

Likely, yes.  

 Especially with the timing.    Teddy has gotten worse each week and proven he is the same guy everybody thought he was.  

 

I wonder if there are GM candidates that Tepper wants that are already interviewing that he doesn't want to miss a chance on.

You could be right but my understanding was that Joe Brady was the driving force in getting Teddy brought in (i.e. Brady didn't want the job without Teddy).

Not arguing with the decision to move on from Hurney but I personally think it's completely unrelated to Teddy

If so he deserved it. If he kept Cam and got the sack you could at least pity the man who stuck by the QB he drafted till the end but this guy actually went out of his way to find one of the most mediocre QBs to bet his entire management career on. That is some grade A self destruction.

What I said as soon as I saw the news. Tepper could have waited until the Black Monday after the season ended and quietly escorted him out of the building while all the HCs getting fired would have been the distraction.

But, I have to imagine Teddy Take-A-Sack's performance is a major factor in the timing. It also suggests that Tepper showing his emotional investment, too, and he simply got pissed after Saturday night's game.

I don't know, Hurney strikes me as the type to want to make the big pick at QB, and he put a lot of looking into the QB prospects last draft

I still think Bridgewater was Brady and perhaps even tepper as well
