Follow up video...

Panthers Insider

Craft says he took the time to meet every single member of the team's staff.

Rivera describes him as "very direct and forthright".

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.

I'll take a wait and see approach but I do like how he seems to have a chip on his shoulder, having had to wait years for this opportunity.

Oh and his Boston accent is amazing.

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.

Lotsa talk on FNZ about him not beringing along his own staff. Sounds like they didn't quite get the story he told about Marv Levy and why he wanted to get a look at the current staff first.

I think eventually he'll make some changes, but I don't really blame him for wanting to know who he's working with first.

Funny response from a PFT commenter on the comparisons to Hurney...

Hurney = Gettleman?

Sure! Just strip away the two Lombardi trophies and the useful 2nd-7th round draft picks and UDFAs that the Giants acquired with his help.

Seems like a we found a great guy to blame all of our future failures on.
I feel honored that we will someday have the privilege to hate this fine man.

Sounds just like Rivera.
