How long do we give Gettlemen to turn things around?

29 posts in this topic

I'm giving him 3 yrs.

I wanna see a 1st rounder who can make instant impact on this team like a Cam and Luke. I don't want someone that we draft that we'll have to wait and see him on situational plays only. The draft should be taken through carefully. Trading down should be an option and a no brainer.

Fix the cap, cut the aging player with big contracts (Gamble) and restructure the rest. Learn how to bring in FA guys that can be an added piece to this team and not off the street guys. We, Hurney passed up on no brainer guys like Carlos Rogers recently who wouldve fill a needy position. I dnt want to see anymore of that bullshit.

And to the OP, "we" don't give him any time. That's up to Jerry. Just sayin.

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

we will have anti-aging medication by then.

You're hired.

Now, let's discuss contract buyouts.

If we aren't somewhat consistently good in five years we need to think about moving on.

This isn't college basketball where you groom a bunch of kids. This isn't Little League. This isn't college football with red shirts. This is the NFL. You play to win from the moment you start. He gets one season to improve. If he fails, does that mean he should be fired? Nope. But he doesn't get time to build something. That's not how it works anymore.

This will be a joke next year. All the avalanche needs is a little push.

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.

You see, Aggie Lean, this is the kind of statement that I was talking about.

On the Huddle?

A couple of winning seasons off the bat= 5 years.

A couple of playoff berths off the bat= 7 years.

A Super Bowl win in the first 3 years= as long as he wants & a statue.

Multiple Super Bowls in the first 5 years= Renaming BoA to Gettlemen Field.

0-3 out of the gate next year = Late Oct of 2013.
