[quote]When former Giants G.M. Ernie Accorsi was hired to help the Panthers find a new G.M., the first name that popped up in league circles as the prime candidate was Giants executive Dave Gettleman, given his relationship and friendship with Accorsi. [B]And even though Gettleman wasn’t even interviewed for any of the other G.M. openings in the current hiring cycle, he won the dog-and-pony show in Charlotte.[/b][/quote]

People can criticize all they want though, I still think he was a great hire.

Hey look. We went with Rivera who had been passed over 10 times (or whatever it was). Why were we the ones to pull the trigger?

I think Gettleman looks great on paper and it will be 5 years before we can evaluate him.

I didn't see anything particularly negative in the piece. He's just rehashing old news.

His analysis on it suggested cronyism

Florio must have caught the clap at Myrtle Beach in his younger days. I can't figure out why this guy is so down on Carolina.

I refuse to click on the link. So I have to ask, does he even offer another possible GM hire in the article? It would be incredibly stupid to bash the hire and not provide what he thinks would have been a better hire.

Like I said, negativity is good for business in this type of media. Just look around.

5 years? This board will be calling for his head if we lose the first game next year.

One thing that has puzzled me about JR is that he has loved and admired the Giants organzation and wanted to model the Panthers after them. But he let Hurney do what Hurney had fone for the past five years. It makes no sense. Better late than never i guess, with the Gettleman hire/philosophy.

With the millions of sports analyst and reporters out there (at least it seems like millions) someone was bound to not like it. I guess we will see if he is right.

It's the Steelers, it's always been the Steelers. It's why we play them every fuging preseason since we got a team.

Plenty of people find jobs as a result of social networking. We don't live in a meritocracy. Maybe Gettleman has great talent and hasn't been getting interviews or opportunities because he doesn't know many people around the league that well.

I'll wait and see how he performs. If he's a great GM, I couldn't care less if he was hired because he knew someone or because he's white or because he went to Wake Forest.

At the end of the day we all just want people who will help the team win.

He very well might have mentioned how he admired the Giants, especially considering our recent GM hiring. He's said this about a lot of teams. But he's always said that the team that he wanted to emulate, or be modeled after, was the Steelers. It's been the same tune since 1993.
