Bill Polian, who hired Panthers GM Dave Gettleman as a scout in Buffalo, said Gettleman's always been a terrific talent evaluator.

"He's been through this drill many times before. He will not panic. He will not be swayed by outside noise," -- Polian on Dave Gettleman.

 

Person doesn't say where these quotes are coming from but you can infer from another tweet that they're from a pre-draft conference call.  He also says Polian is high on UNC QB Bryn Renner.

 

Worth remembering that it was Polian who gave Gettleman his first NFL job (with the Bills).  He's said before of Gettleman that he was the type to spend hours locked in his office just watching tape, trying to find the right players.

 

I'd guess that Person will probably do a writeup on this later.

This is actually Person's report on the Gettleman hiring.

Zing.

It would be interesting to follow a GM around for a day & see just how much information they get & sift through that we fans don't get to see.

"Overall, Gettleman has been a part of eight Super Bowl teams, including three winners."

 

I want it to say nine Super Bowl teams, including six winners.

Does G Man have a contract?  Id hate to lose him to another team.

That's exactly why I'm not worried (not that I was worried when Hurney was GM either).  With one draft G-man has proven that he knows what he's doing with these college kids.  As for FA and dealing with team chemistry, I will reserve judgement at least for another year.  I like what I am seeing for the most part though.

Gettleman is putting the pieces in place with the strain of our salary cap. If our record isn't what it should be I won't be blaming him or our players because I trust what he is doing (he has earned that so far).  I'm going to start pointing fingers at the Offensive Coordiantor.

My guess would be...a lot.

No way to predict how things will go wrong, if they do.

 

If we wind up with a poor season, we won't know the cause until we see it play out.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
