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



You should change your name to 'ObliviousPanther'.

Go a few pages back and read Mr. Scots replies, very informative.

I think the GM candidate thread is actually still on the front page at the moment.

Happy with the hire.. as long as we got either Gettleman or Ross, I was going to have hope for the future of our franchise.


If the new GM comes in a lets a lot of vet favorites go, I'll be ok with that - whatever is best for the team, especially if it brings in new, younger guys who are hungry for their spot on the roster. That's something that the end of this season should have shown all of us. When the starters went out and on IR, the new kids did a fair job of stepping up to the plate. To me, they seemed like they wanted it more, and that's always a good spark for the guys around them. So, if they release or trade Gamble, Gross, Beason... whomever, I'm good, provided we get some guys in here who want to play those spots. I believe Gettleman can do that.

If everyone seems to pass over Ross for GM, what do you guys think the chances of us wooing him away fro the Giants with an Assistant GM spot are? I'd be all for that, as eventual replacement for when G-man decides to hang up the cleats. Thoughts?

Were it up to me, I'd offer him a title like Director of Player Personnel or some such.

Word is the Jets are asking for a second interview (feel sorry for him if that's what he winds up with).

I'm thinking the Gmen is going to promote him to fill Gettleman's job

I like the hire. Now I'm ready to hear the man speak. Anyone heard if he will be having a PC tomorrow?

Most likely if he doesn't grab a GM spot. But, wouldn't it be great to nab both the guys we were considering? Would make for a possible seamless and friendly transition down the road.

It would be sick if we could hire Ross to sit in waiting until Gettleman is done then promote Ross to GM in a few years.

Haha, I know about all there is to know about my Panthers. I had just been following Ross and not Gettleman, so i was unaware of what his responsibilities were.

They were actually already grooming somebody for that (Ken Sternfeld).

I could see them promoting Ross to keep him around, it'd likely be to a different role than that one.

Mr. Scot you're someone I admire on here and respect. With the hiring of a new GM, does that mean we clean house with the old or current scouting department group?

Unknown, but I would expect some restructuring.

Gettleman stated that there are people he knows already working in the personnel department but didn't mention any names (probably among the scouts).

Thanks.
Even though we've struck gold in two consecutive years with Cam and Luke, I'd like to see some house cleaning. We have been pretty bad in the draft since 08''. The 09' draft was laughable and some of the recent later round picks are pretty bad (AE, Norwood, McClain, Fua, Hogan, Lawerence Wilson).

Very happy to hear this news, I look forward to seeing what he can do to get the roster ready for '13.
