Wish I could see the expression on the new Cap Guy's face when he digs into the books and sees what Hurney has done.

Gettleman quotes...

"I am honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to work in the Panthers organization. It is similar to the Giants organization in which I have had the privilege of working the last 15 years and has a lot of pieces in place for success. I am excited about getting started."

"There are a lot of great things in place here. You've got great ownership, a great young quarterback, a solid young head coach and plenty of other things to go along with it. I know some of the people in the personnel department that I’m excited to work with. It’s a good nucleus to begin with."

"You take a look at the teams in the playoffs – you have to have a quarterback. If you don't have a quarterback, you don't have a chance," Gettleman said. "You look at the teams that have had to make changes over the last few years, by and large they probably don't have a quarterback. There's one here."

Nice, everyone else on there went back to what they were before Hurney was fired. lol Beane is still listed as well at his old Operations job.

Dave is extremely qualified to be the general manager of the Panthers and will do a terrific job,.I'm thankful for all of his hard work and friendship while here with the Giants. The Panthers interviewed two of the top personnel executives in the NFL in Dave Gettleman and Marc Ross, and couldn't go wrong either way, in my humble opinion

More than one person one here was sure that the Panthers were taking things too slowly. But as of right now, three other fanbases (Chiefs, Browns and Jets) are still waiting to hear who their new GM will be. And the Chargers only completed their search earlier today.

KC seems to have a guy they're centered on. Not sure if the Browns have even conducted any interviews yet (focused on the head coaching search at the moment, which seems ass backward to me). And the Jets? They seem to be scaring off potential candidates.

So in the end, their timing didn't turn out to be all that bad. And even more important, I think they got the right guy, something a bunch of folks were dead certain wouldn't happen.

Kudos to the team.

He could really be a guy Gettleman brings in. Phillips is an UFA and he's currently injured. NYG still has Rolle and Stevie Brown, so I can see Phillips testing the market.
