Sounds like a winner but I like my GMs to be from networks... im hiring Michael Lombardi.

Curious real question... Will the next GM get a three year pass or will the huddle want to fire.com him after halftime of Game1 of preseason?

first draft day.

if he doesn't go by mel kipers draft board i say we fire him on the spot.

Dave Gettleman bio from the Giants site

http://www.giants.co...35-aecea77aa9cb


That's the short version. Click to get the expanded version and you'll find he started in the league as a college scout and continued in that capacity for 13 years or so. He's worked at both levels. No indication he's worked with the cap though (outside shot he brings Kevin Abrams with him).

Might take some effort to dig up more. Cursory web search on him didn't produce much outside his team bio.

Definitely worth a look, but with the source being Florio, also worth a grain of salt.

the more i think about it, the more i want us to bring in a personnel guy and a cap guy. of course i don't have to pay for two people to do what should be one man's job, either.

one thing is clear to me...if jerry wants this team to be a winner and to get him a lombardi before he dies, he's gonna have to open up that check book. that means hiring two people that are great at their job rather than one guy who is good (hopefully) at both.

that also applies to the HC job. gonna have to spend to get someone we can trust to get things turned around.

I'd agree. And I'd also look at replacing some of the entrenched people.

Will say this. Gettleman doesn't fit the "young guy" idea that Yasinskas floated, but he's been part of more success than Jerry Richardson has ever seen with the Panthers and has scouted at both the college and pro levels.

Interesting, to say the least.

Switched from my iPad to my PC and found search was way more productive.

One tidbit. Just this past year, the Giants cut down on his duties. He was also scouting opponents as well as personnel. They gave him a different title and asked him to focus on personnel only.

A GM with experience scouting opponents is intriguing.

Also of note: GM Jerry Reese refers to Gettleman as a mentor.

no sacred cows.

i have no problem with keeping effective people around.

and no, just being part of a losing culture doesn't mean one isn't good at his job, but it also makes it hard to distinguish the good from the bad.

i remember hearing that after the 2010 season, aside from don gregory the whole college scouting department was rebuilt. it was one of those "quiet" rebuilds. if that is the case, i would have no problem keeping that staff around just based on what they did this last year.

i think that could be a useful element.
