Re: Marty Hurney Thread

I like the move, whether it be short or long term. All of these positions have been fluid over the last 20 years, and we need stability. The fastest way to do that is to bring in someone that is familiar with the "system", just like we did when our QB room was located in the rehab facility. Keeping Kyle on is important to me, but not as important as building quality into our processes for the long term.

The Panthers won a lot more games during RR's tenure than the WFT won during the same time period. I'll take Carolina North if it means winning a few more games each year and competing for the division on an annual basis.

You pretty much nailed it and ended the thread IMO.

We won't know much about how it's going before a couple of years, and with RR showing signs of turning this franchise around in year 1, I'll trust him on this one until I have a reason not to.

Not happy with this retread. Hope they give Kyle a new title don't want to lose him.

Oh well. Hopefully KS stays, but if I was betting money, I think he's gone.

Rivera is getting to build the franchise his way. We have already seen improvements, so I'll be patient with the move and optimistic he has a successful plan in place.

Re: Marty Hurney Thread

His track record is not that great but I will trust Ron's process until the process doesn't bear results.

I think this means Kyle moving on somewhere he's more appreciated while I secretly hope he gets along great with Hurney and they develop a great rapport. Hopefully in 3 years time we're not sitting back looking at Rivera with regret while Smith joins the list of non-players succeeding elsewhere.

You realize that after three years together in Carolina they were 15-1 and and in the Super Bowl right?

Re: Marty Hurney Thread

I didn't realize Hurney worked closely with Bobby Beathard in SD as his assistant GM

Who is Washington's reported new GM Marty Hurney?

Re: Marty Hurney Thread

Past performance is no guarantee of future results...

I'm not passing judgement on the hire, but I wouldn't rely on success from nearly a decade ago on another team to indicate where we're going now. On the other hand, even after he left, some of the roster he left behind went on to win the NFC in 2015.

I prefer to see how we look in camp before I start judging his capability.

Re: Marty Hurney Thread

Ultimately Ron is the shot caller, so I think a lot of this worry is for nothing anyway. Hurney will take some of the day to day stuff off Ron's plate and be a voice in the room for him, but it's clearly Ron's show.

Exactly. RR still calls the shots. I think that's the biggest takeaway from this hire.

RR was somewhat overwhelmed with responsibility this year, and it is amazing he did as well as he did considering his health issues. Hurney can immediately take some things off of Ron's plate, help organize the front office and mentor the young guys like Stokes & Smith, so RR can concentrate more on coaching.

It's not like Hurney is now taking everything over and making all the decisions.

Re: Marty Hurney Thread

#49ers VP of Player Personnel Martin Mayhew is headed to the Washington Football Team as a high-ranking executive with a title to be determined, source said. He’ll work with coach Ron Rivera and Marty Hurney as WFT restructures its organization.
