  1. Sitting down with Turner, Olsen and Davis to smooth things over and restart contract talks.
  2. I don't think it's the Players and the contracts themselves that had anything to do with it directly, but the way Gettleman handled players. Williams, Smith, Norman, TD, Olsen... ext.. Then with Beane leaving, there wasn't anyone to smooth over Gettlemans unpeople like approach to handling players and contracts.
  3. He came back on the 12th for an interview about the MLB all star, last time he was on as far as I know.
  4. I think it's clearly his job to loose, I don't think he would have ever left if it wasn't for him being friends with JR and public perception. They simply needed a scale goat at the time and him leaving was best case for the franchise.
  5. Why is Gettleman not here anymore? He didn't do what JR asked him to do. This basically stems from Norman not getting a long term deal, that was the falling out between JR and Gettleman. Gettleman like all of the coaches and Front office personale was given more rope to hang themselves with and TD plus Olsen was the knot in the noose if you will. Point with those three players is all were extremely close with JR. He didn't like how they were treated and it's basically the direct reason he isn't here any more. Hurney is close with JR, so he did what his Boss told him to do and it gave him a long leash and job security. Most people do that unless they are the boss. Gettleman didn't do that and he got fired... which would you do if your boss asked you to do something work related? Just saying
  6. If you compare first four seasons 37-27 with two NFC championship game and one super bowl appearance To 40-23-1 with one NFC championship game and one Super bowl appearance. Which is better?
  7. First four years 37-27 two NFC championship game appearances and 1 super bowl appearance. 40-23-1 One NFC championship and one super bowl appearance. Just saying, don't use record against one when they are basically the same but one had more post season success despite getting there 1 less time over the first four years. As far as the cap mess, if many remember the new spending floor came out and the Panthers had to spend money and it was a huge rumor that JR pushed Hurney to give those particular contracts out at the time. So not sure you can 100% blame him for the contracts because of what was going on at the time. Also can't blame him for the 2-14 season with John Fox as a lame duck coach, his hands were clearly tied behind his back by JR and not being allowed to either fire or extend Fox.

  8. Said he wanted to be paid like a top NFL TE, look at the major TE contracts. 10m average yearly, 4 year plus deals. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.
  9. Greg wants to be the highest paid TE in the NFL. That's a big fat contract if you ask me. Lol Talking about over 10m a season and 3-4 years. So something like a 3 year extension worth 10.5m per season with 45% guaranteed. Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app
  10. 7-9 before, now..... poo show dumpster fire so that the whole coaching staff gets fired and the team starts over with a new GM and a new coach next season. Lol Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app
  11. They had a dysfunctional relationship with each other and had two differing management styles that was causing problems. Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app
  12. Never thought about it but what if they asked Beane and he turned them down and then went and looked and got the Buffalo job. Hmmmmm Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app
  13. It was done over the TD and Olsen situation but JR started wanting Gettleman out after he refused to give Norman a deal. JR was close to Norman and thought he was worth the contract. Rumors are saying that was the beginning of the end. Which begs the question, why not fire him and let Beane take over. I'm still confused about that. Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app
  14. Some rumors saying this started with letting Norman go and JR didn't like it, add to that the things with TD and Olsen and JR stepped in and fired him. Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app
  15. It does have quite a bit to do with this but also he wasn't a people person. Beane did most of the day to day work, was doing more and more in the draft room, scouting and so forth. But make no mistake, beane made this ship run when he left it just compounded the problems gettleman has in this type of organization. Jerry likes the TD and Olsens to be taken care of and Gettleman wasn't going to play ball was the last straw if you will. That's what I've gathered so far.
