From tweets by Joe Person...

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

 

Joe Person @josephperson 50m

"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.

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.

 

Team G

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.

without even waiting to see how the offense performs, you expect failure. Lol

Ramsdell will help spice up Shula's offense.

 

I cannot wait until G-man is out of this cap hell.   Soon he can bring in Top Tier free agents and make the Panthers a dynasty.
