Gettleman has been with 3 teams, all of them perennial Playoff teams with good solid drafting when he was there including Buffalo in the 80es/90es which included drafting Thurman Thomas, Denver where they drafted Terrell Davis and then the Giants where he became Pro Personnel Director and picked up free agents such as Kerry Collins (who led them to a Superbowl) Shaun O'Hara and Plaxico Burress..

I Approve and i hope he teaches his protege how to be like the Giants

I'm still thinking Gettleman is going to take Beane under his Wing and groom him to be the head burrito when Gettleman leaves.


I have my doubts.

Gettleman is a true "football guy". I'd expect that to be what he'd want in a successor.

so an "NFC South Afternoon Update" that didn't have anything about Gettleman just appeared and disappeared from yas' blog

i guess they're editing it with the news.

He'll probably report that Brandon Beane was the second choice.



Joe Person ended his article by saying that Beane was considered for the job. lol

Good Hire, was one of the two I wanted so glad to see it happen



And..... LMAO at all the people that got bent out of shape over Beane just being in the discussion, you amused me greatly.

come one you knew that last part was coming from me.


To be fair, the purposelessness in whatever you post amuses the rest of us

It's pretty clear that ol' Beanie was never in serious consideration for the job.

This is an excellent hire, Ross was the "sexy" candidate but the longer this process went and the more I read the more I wanted Gettleman - he seemed like the most qualified candidate by a long shot.

I've never thought the whole time that we would be going with Beane, as perviously stated: why would we bring someone in to do a GM search if we were just going to hire from within?

if it doesn't smell right, it probably isn't.

twas the reason I had my fun with it.

Very true. Very true.

We also don't know what was talked about behind closed doors, I'm only speculating but who knows.

It's a great Hire regardless. Who ever he picks will be our heir and if he learns form this man, we'll have a good to great GM. At least one that knows how to manage a Cap.

abrams?

not realistic, but i'd take an abrams protoge. apparently he's been grooming people to do what he does every year.


The scenario I pondered was whether the Giants might offer Marc Ross a promotion because of his getting so many interviews. If they made him the Assistant GM and moved Abrams out, then I'd happily take Abrams as our cap guy.
