good stuff about the new GM on the panthers site...

"You can go to some people and talk about a player from another team, and they'll go to their computer, look at their notes and give you a good comprehensive report. Dave, you could say, ‘Tell me about the fifth corner in Denver.' He's got a report right off the top of his head."
Gettleman served as the Giants' pro personnel assistant in 1998. A year later, Rooney retired.
"We did not expect this. It stunned me," Accorsi said. "But I felt so confident about Dave, we promoted him to the directorship immediately. He was a natural.
"I saw his executive ability. I saw his ability to administrate and hire people. He was the entire package."
.
.
.
"Six Super Bowls, three winners and three runner-ups," Accorsi said. "He's a winner. He has a championship background."
Accorsi is quick to credit Gettleman for helping shape the rosters that produced Super Bowl titles for New York .
Gettleman was primarily responsible for evaluating NFL free agents, and when the Giants tested the free agent market they rarely missed.
"We drafted well to win those two Super Bowls, but we basically never made an error on a major free agent," Accorsi said. "Talking about unrestricted free agents, the guys you go out and pay pretty good money for. Whether it was (wide receiver) Plaxico Burress, (linebacker) Antonio Pierce, (offensive lineman) Kareem McKenzie, (offensive lineman) Shaun O'Hara – whoever it was, we hit on those guys."
But Gettleman's influence extended beyond the free agent market. Accorsi wanted his input on all personnel matters.
"When we talked about high draft choices, I had him scout those players because I wanted his opinion," Accorsi said. "I just grew to have so much faith in him."

Did you hear the interview the mac attack did on the Giants GM Reece? I'm feeling good about Gettleman. This just solidifies everything.

I can't wait for the draft.

He stutters a lot but he says some straight forward things about Gettleman.

I have to believe this single move just changed the culture of this Org. Teamed with Rivera, I have faith this team is finally returning to our roots. Hire good football people and go about your budness. Still need a cap guy I guess. But that shouldn't be a tough find.

There is no reason not to believe the bright future we all envisioned cannot be reached.

IMO, the only two mistakes JR has made are, Letting Polian go, and keeping Hurney too long. This is not a mistake. This is a franchise changing hire. Too bad some are missing out on the excitement with their fear of the past.

I wanted Tom Gamble from SF and I was never too big of a fan of Marc Ross of NYG. But if we didn't get Gamble, I'm more than satisfied with Gettle-Magic. amidoinitrite?
