Went over to a few Giant fan forums to see what fans were saying. Mostly well-wishes, a lot of "sad to see him go", others who didn't know what to think.

Had to laugh at one fan reaction though. He posted "Damn you Ernie" :lol:

Somebody explain to me why this is a good hire(not saying it isn't). I just know nothing about the man.

What we're his responsibilities with the other teams and how does that qualify him to be a GM?

Actually part of six teams that went to the Super Bowl. Three won, three lost.

He basically took the giants from sub par to being a really good team in the NFC east

Mostly GM's have to work out

Contracts

Free Agency

Scouting for the Draft

Hiring and Firing Personal

Stadium

He's main goal is Building a championship team To Carolina.

He will fix our cap 17+ million over.

I think this is a great hire. The guy brings tons of experience and comes from a great organization. A lot of the candidates actually sounded great, but I think Jerry did something good here. Can't wait to see what the Gettlemeister does with this team.

Interesting notes from Gantt on his Twitter.

Scouts are a notoriously clubby, clique-ish lot. Very few personnel men rip Dave Gettleman. RT @jamos14: Whats your opinion on the hire?

Gettleman's known in the business as a grinder. Not a politician. Not a talker. From a personality standpoint, that's not unlike Hurney.

Hurney reference aside, good stuff to hear.

Relieved it wasn't Beane. Still anticipate hearing his name tossed around some this off season in some capacity.

Also this tweet from Pat Hanlon, Giants Senior Vice President of Communications

A lot of people do great work in relative anonymity in NFL. I"m glad people know Dave Gettleman's name today!
