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.
