Gettleman hired as Panthers GM

272 posts in this topic

Heck, even Bill Polian is saying this was a good hire.

Polian's having a good week as his front office tree just grew with Gettleman and Telesco getting jobs.

i think they aren't even formally introducing him until next week.

probably a lot more important stuff to do.

Yeah, and they may also be waiting on a couple more front office hires that Gettleman brings in.

i actually feel better if he's waiting to learn more about the organization before he talks publicly.

one thing i don't expect is for him to be as out in the public eye as hurney was.

that might bother some, but i've got no problem with it.

La Canfora is saying on his twitter feed that with this hiring of an older GM could mean that Beane is the GM heir apparent once the time is right.

He has his work cut out for him!

Be prepared fans for at least 2 years to recover/turn around the Cap mess the Panthers are in, in 2013!

Maaaaaan, all these weeks waiting on the news of our new GM and what do you know? We make the hire randomly the day Centurylink drops the ball and says my internet went out b/c there's a short 'in the box.'

I just found out b/c my friend mentioned it in passing and I immediately became pissed that I didn't already know.

Anyway, I'm excited with all of the reviews from former peers, but I definitely am concerned about his age. I also don't prefer Beane to be the heir to the job as I would rather hire another guy like Gettleman who has a proven track record of finding and allocating talent. But, that's not a concern right now... Overall, really excited about the hire.

NOTE: If there are any typos, I am typing this on a 'smart'phone.

I highly doubt it will take that long. First we need restructure a couple of our linebackers contracts, restructure Gross, and cut Gamble(cutting Gamble alone would almost get us under the cap). Then draft CB in the first, OL in the second, and sign a good safety in FA, we'd be set. Damn how I'd love to be in Gettleman's position.
