Mr. Scot

First Impressions: Dave Gettleman

One important factor to me: He stated that the evaluation and roster decision process has to be "unemotional" and "not sentimental".

Welcome words.

Goodbye Beason...

Another thing: Said after he arrived here yesterday he spent so much time working that he wound up never even saying hello to Jerry Richardson. This was because he wanted to "hit the ground running".

Gettleman felt like he owed Richardson an apology for that. If I were Richardson, I'd say "no problem".

This tells me he's more about doing the job he was hired to do than playing office politics or kissing the owner's ass.

I volunteer to be the team's translator for Gettleman's Boston accent. I've had to deal with my roommates for years.

Link for the video of the presser will likely be up in a little bit for those who couldn't see it live.

First question was asked by one of the "Drive" guys from WFNZ. He's been introduced to Charlotte media now (something significantly less scary than New York media).

I hope that's a Giants' championship ring on his finger. Should be a good motivator for all those around him.

First thing JR does is call out a reporter for saying Jerry did several things wrong.

Petty.

    • Im not quite following you. KB had a whole offseason after getting hurt. Then a whole season. And now another half-off-season. I'm not as impatient with his weight as other are being, but I still wish he would create good habits for himself while he's in his prime. He'll have a longer and more productive career that way.
    • I just discovered that I saved the roster as it was immediately post-draft last year on May 1.  We had 39 on Defense, 35 on Offense (74 total) and brought in 7 UDFAs (plus other try outs). It's DRAMATIC to see some of the changes in terms of relative numbers by offense & defense, and at a few position groups - notably OT (huge increase);  Here are the images: Offense:  May 1, 2016   Defense May 1 2016:   Special Teams May 1 2016   Position break down May 1, 2016:   I'll post a side-by-side comparison of the 2016 and 2017 roster by position totals in just a minute (obviously we don't know all the UDFAs for sure yet.)
