Gettleman hired as Panthers GM

272 posts in this topic

It's pretty clear that ol' Beanie was never in serious consideration for the job.

This is an excellent hire, Ross was the "sexy" candidate but the longer this process went and the more I read the more I wanted Gettleman - he seemed like the most qualified candidate by a long shot.

He'll probably report that Brandon Beane was the second choice.

I've never thought the whole time that we would be going with Beane, as perviously stated: why would we bring someone in to do a GM search if we were just going to hire from within?

if it doesn't smell right, it probably isn't.

twas the reason I had my fun with it.

I have my doubts.

Gettleman is a true "football guy". I'd expect that to be what he'd want in a successor.

Very true. Very true.

We also don't know what was talked about behind closed doors, I'm only speculating but who knows.

It's a great Hire regardless. Who ever he picks will be our heir and if he learns form this man, we'll have a good to great GM. At least one that knows how to manage a Cap.

abrams?

not realistic, but i'd take an abrams protoge. apparently he's been grooming people to do what he does every year.

The scenario I pondered was whether the Giants might offer Marc Ross a promotion because of his getting so many interviews. If they made him the Assistant GM and moved Abrams out, then I'd happily take Abrams as our cap guy.

I've pretty much wanted either Ross or Gettleman the entire time, and either one was going to be a win for us so yeah

The more I learned about him the more he definitely seemed like the best man for the job.

I'm very pleased. LOL still with the Beane knob polishing. Get over it!

Doesn't matter at all. The guy is barely over 60.

What are you, 12?

We've got a General Manager. And what looks to be a damn good one at that. Hooray!!!

Now all he's got to do is restrucuture some if our stars, cut Nakamura, get us under the cap, draft well, and then we'll be golden.
