Mr. Scot

First Impressions: Dave Gettleman

134 posts in this topic

I get the feeling that his age was a plus--he has the same sense of desperation JR has.

He mentioned the components of winning football games, (in addition to your "big men" quote): QB, TD makers, Pass rush.

Gettlemen said that we have pieces. That is right. Marty hoped these pieces would win for you if you paid them enough. Thank Marty for our situation at DE, QB, C, LB and TE. Blame him for problems at RB (cap), CB, DT, RG, WR and S (bad drafting or neglect).

Marty paid top dollar to reward our free agents and went bottom fishing for others. Gettlemen seems to have an expertise in free agency. He mentioned the flat cap and one-year contracts-no long term committments for quick fixes (see Hurney, 2010-2012). He seems to understand the market. He does not want to overpay. Marty thought he had to overpay to keep players here.

Rosters are liquid. You check the waiver wire and take players from other teams' practice squads. If you are not building a program from the bottom up, you are not building a program.

----Yes, he said that. Great to hear from a fan of a team with little depth and the biggest IR in the league for several years running.

Just think back to how the Giants handled Osi Unmenyuria. He begged for a big deal and they told him to play or watch JPP.

when he was talking about his mother in law's opinion of him and chocked up i swear when he said "what you see is what you get" i thought i was looking at robert deniro.

There is absolutely no way you could convince me the Bojangles thing is coincidental. The old man is trolling.

not trolling so much as clever product placement

Thanks man. That worked for me to. I wonder why tho. I've never had that problem on any other site.

Did I miss something during the presser ? On NFL.com they said Dave Gettleman laughed about our cap situation. I didn't see what that writer saw.

I haven't read through the thread, but has anyone gave it to JR yet for potshotting the media during the intro? Wow, low blow.
