There's obviously a lot of posters in their 50s/60s on here.

60 IS old. Especially for a guy that has never been a GM before.

Was hoping for Ross, but honestly I'm not mad about this hire at all... I think the plan is to have Gettleman groom Beane into GM material while taking care of the team. Overall I think this is a good hire (now it's time for me to shed a tear for the Ross bandwagon :'( )

Being rumored that Beane won't even be retained at all.

Have you seen his picture? He looks a healthy 61. I am pleased with this hire. Maybe he can change the organization even if he isn't here for 20 years.

There were morons on here that wanted us to bring Bill Polian back after he got fired by Indy. He's fuging 71 years old.

Age isn't an issue. He can, and very likely will, remain in the NFL for 10+ more years.

Also, there are folks wanting Arians as HC and he is 60...

Pat Y has analyzed, however I'm afraid he has analyzed a guy named "Gettelman?" Not sure who he means.

edit: Also referred to as "Gettelaman" once

Also someone named "Gettelaman".

I thought he did a decent job managing the team with Hurney's release.. What ever is best for the team maybe JUST MAYBE we can steal Ross :cool: lol

Part of me wonders if the buzz that Beane was a serious candidate might have been floated by Beane himself, or via his agent. That could be seen as a reason to drop him.

Marc Garafolo of USA Today said in the end the Panthers chose Gettleman over Ross according to a tweet from The Drive.

Matt Harris was just thrown out by the old Giants Beat guy on WFNZ.

Garofolo also says there's a guy named Matt Harris who works in the Giants FO that Gettleman might bring along as a possible "cap guy".

Edit: CPF96 beat me to it :lol:

Ross is officially the new Rivera. Always the bridesmaid.

He'll get his shot eventually.
