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:

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

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!

Wonder how long it'll be before the vitriol starts towards this man. God knows thats the only thing this fanbase is good at.

decisions don't age

I wonder why my phone would change tough to young.
Doesn't matter.

I have never been one to over react to GM decisions.

Cause I call out the majority on it, ragingbull takes it personal, and says I'm beatings the board.

Laughable poo from both of ya.

This from Ernie Accorsi (via Joe Person's Twitter)

"I am very happy for Dave. He is totally deserving and he's joining a good organization and a great owner."

In addition to making a great hire, JR and Morrison should be commended for trolling the hell out of the writers that cover the Panthers. They actually succeeded in convincing them that a guy with zero experience had a shot at the GM job.
