Mr. Scot

First Impressions: Dave Gettleman

134 posts in this topic

Fun fact: a buddy on my softball team just text me and said he's gonna have to start rooting for the Panthers because Gettleman was his high school baseball and football coach. My buddy turns 50 in June so that was 33 years ago. Said he used to have a much thicker Boston accent. So Gettleman has already converted one more Panther fan. That's pretty cool I guess.

I lived how he made it a point to discuss why he took a step down from football last year. Said he was basically frustrate he never even got a sniff of a GM job. If you have been that successful in your career, and are frustrated enough in your lack of advancement that you take a yet off to reassess your professional life, you are HUNGRY.

He may be older, but he is every bit as eager to really make a mark as a young hot shot. Maybe even moreso. This man has accomplished more than most do in his career, and now wants to cement a legacy. JR and Danny gave him that opportunity when nobody else would.

If he fails as a GM, it will not be from lack of preparation, competence or hard work. He's gonna bust his ass to prove himself and I hope we'll all look back on today and say, best hire JR has ever made.

Like the fact that he thinks our size is an issue...I'd agree with him. I wouldn't be surprised if we cut Beason and try to get bigger along the front seven...the giants have a huge front seven. Obviously the OL needs to get bigger first.

I've been saying for years our lbs have been undersized

Luke fortunately has the frame to get bigger. Davis is alright for now at 240. As for the others, well let's just wait and see what he does

I love Bo

But flaunting that shitt at a press conference is JR being JR

Like the man is going to bring in a 'Mickey D's " cup with his holdings in BO's...haters going to find something to hate.

You flaunt a new car.

You flaunt a Louis Vuitton bag.

You flaunt some new Jordan's.

You don't flaunt sweet tea from a fast food joint. You carry it with you everywhere because you genuinely LOVE that poo.

He said in the presser that "Ron would tell you I'm pretty direct".

I get the definite impression he's given him a "here's where you stand" speech.

It seemed to work with Coughlin

    • Glad you can point to 1 off season to hang your hat on, when it comes to your opinion.  Doesn't give you much to stand on. What exactly are we crowning him anyways?   
    • I'm sure he's learned his lesson not to have a conversation with our fan base because of the way this way blown out of context. He didn't ask a question. He didn't imply anything. However, the same fans that only read headlines and then share posts on Facebook (without reading the article) decided to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions about this. So yeah....Bill should be more clear because we aren't very smart.  Edit: FYI...."if picked up" is not a question it's a statement. Should he have just assumed instead?
    • Nate Silver did an analysis on this, and not sure which party it would benefit more but what he did say was that it would likely hurt GOP more to pass it than for it to fail That is how unpopular this bill was
