How long do we give Gettlemen to turn things around?

29 posts in this topic

It's been a really long time since this fan base has had to deal with a new General Manager and a new way of doing business. We are definitely going to see some big changes this summer, contracts will be terminated, and potentially a new philosophy during the draft (i.e. players that can play their positions). Hurney did some great things in the draft and brought in some decent free agents without breaking the bank. But his screw ups outside the first round of the draft as well as dealing future picks, huge contracts to aging stars, and the inability to find players at certain positions (Wide Receiver, Defensive Tackle) made us grow weary of his decision making. Despite Hurney's success, we quickly turned on him in the last few years, albeit warranted. My question is how long does Gettlemen get before we begin to question his ability to make us a winner?

What do you want accomplished? What will be considered a huge failure? How long is his grace period last? 1 year? Two years? Does he get a pass because he hasn't picked his own coach?

5 years, baring colossal failure.

I don't want to be too ambitious but I'm thinking around 35 years

That's a bit optimistic, especially considering he will be 96 years old.

Next year is a throwaway year- Rivera will continue to fail and Gettleman will get "his" coach. Then unless things are going absolutely terribly that's a certain 3 additional years there before the heat begins to rise.

Gettleman will have a minimum of 5 years and maybe more if Rivera (not his coach combined with massive cap trouble) struggles this season.

To get more time he'll have to have a couple playoff teams with at least 1 division championship.

I love all you negative people. NOT. This team is already heading in the right direction. I'm not one that believes Rivera will fail next year. As negative as some of you are I can't help but wonder how you get through a day without commiting suicide.
