First impressions can be deceiving, but here were mine:

1) Gettleman has forgotten more about football than Hurney ever knew.
2) Jerry is aging quickly. He looks much more frail than say 2 years ago.
3) Back to Gettleman, overall I was impressed. I just hope he doesn't turn out to be too conservative or afraid to do something bold. I don't think he will, just saying it can be an issue with older managers.
4) His scouting experience should really help improve the bottom of our roster (depth).

I'm glad we made the change.

Was kinda hoping for a younger guy, but I love the scouting background.

Glad we got a football guy.

This year I don't think we will be able to change but so much, as far as getting some studs in, but maybe after the cap is cleared a bit he can really go to work.

Seems like a no-nonsense guy who can make the tough choices that lead to success.

His accent was amusing. The one thing that stuck with me is he didn't want to throw out the baby with the bath water. That is admirable but we aren't very happy with our scouting department. I was hoping he would come in a restructure things. Hopefully in time he will. However his head will probably be swimming this offseason.

Jerry looked terrible and was instantly rude.

If I had been sitting there in the front row and Jerry had asked, "did you miss me?" I would have replied, "That's condescending; the franchise has been a mess and the fans have been demanding answers and yet you've disappeared."

The reporters lobbed softballs and/or dumb questions.

The only solid question was about the salary cap situation. Gettleman punted, which says to me he knows it's a mess.

The transition from JR's slow southern drawl to Mr Gettlemans accent was funny.

I liked the hire, and I like the fact that he is a football guy. Hopefully, with the mention of "touchdown scorers", it means were going to go after another big time WR either through the draft or FA.

There's no way he could answer the salary cap question. It could cause panic and drama among players. Or he could honestly still be trying to evaluate the various scenarios.

Jerry did come off as shall we say...hawkish. I've heard he can be a real SOB to his employees if they aren't working their tails off. I think Jerry was trying to be funny but not really.

JR has always been a sarcastic smart ass.


Which relates to 114% of the board.
