NFL.com - Potential HC/GM Pairing: Dave Gettleman (Front Runner For Giants GM) And Steve Wilks

Recommended Posts

Found this on my twitter timeline. Makes some sense in a way.

Have a look:

Panthers DC Steve Wilks and former Panthers GM Dave Gettleman: Wilks impressed in his interview last year with the Rams and has only enhanced his profile since replacing McDermott. Several wired-in people have told me Gettleman is the front-runner for his old team, the Giants, who are consulting his old boss, Ernie Accorsi -- just as Carolina did when it hired Gettleman.

It would make sense. Then again, we've never really seen Dave with his own preferred coaching staff, considering he was benevolent enough to keep Rivera around for a little while longer.

But even so, he'd likely be comfortable around Wilks. Considering Wilks' solid football knowledge and much better personnel to execute his aggressive scheme with the Giants, it's a match made in heaven.

What say you?

If this happens, that means two former panthers executives have gone on to become a GM for a team in NY and two former DCs head coaches for teams in NY in back to back years.

Wonder if something like that has ever happened before.

Screw that I don't wanna give up Wilks

I don't really want to either, considering if this defense had an averagely decent secondary we'd be scary good with Wilks. Then again, Wilks does have a problem trusting poor secondaries too much and giving them little help and too much responsibility.

He'd likely not have that big of a problem in the Big Apple. And the Giants defense would go back to being scary good.

i mean that means Wilks isn't our DC anymore, which is a pretty big deal

God bless the Giants trying to rehash an old flame, you would think they would have learn their lesson by now.

Gettleman will probably waste their top 3 pick on a DT and release all the current players just to prove a point.

Any evidence to back up your supposed “facts?”

I get lots of facts and info from my source.  You don't have to believe me.

Man, damn. If this goes down, that means the Panthers have produced two NFL HCs, a GM, and had a GM fired to go on to get another job immediately all the while producing ZERO Lombardis. 

You'd think we'd have a trophy case to rival the Pats' the way we've been bleeding talent out of this building.
