I know I will catch some flak for this but I have to be perfectly honest, after watching his presser, im not so sure im sold on Gettleman. First of all, he seems to have the same "avoid high end FAs, only build through the draft" philosphy Hurney had. I was hoping we would have a GM that signs good FAs. We all saw how well "keeping our own worked." We could have signed Vincent Jackson instead of Stewart and solidified a 1-2 punch WR tandem in Smitty and VJax.

I also dont like the idea he plans on keeping a bulk of our front office intact instead of bringing in his own guys, this also concerns me. He also didnt come across as willing to make wholesale changes that this team needs a lot of. Im not so sure he will make the tough decisions when it comes to guys like Gamble, Gross, Beason, DWill etc.

I also dont like the fact he seems to be behind Rivera, I wouldnt be shocked even if we miss the playoffs that Gettleman will fire Rivera. The way he talked about Rivera, it didnt seem like he was in a rush to part ways with him, even if he screws up next season.

All in all, I really cant diatinguish how Gettleman differs from Hurney in any meaningful way. Im sorry, ive learned the hardway with Rivera that actions speak louder than words.

Im just wondering.. Does anybody really care what this guy thinks? Especially after reading a few of his posts already? Here's something to start understanding first.. It's been a few days.. You've seen nothing and know less about the man.. Yet you're going off assumptions based off of one presser... Really? C'mon.

Gettleman's biggest strength is his personnel knowledge. 25 years worth of grading players on teams, FA's, and college players. I think that is why he is ok with our scouting department "As is" right now. He even said when in doubt he will be in a room with the clicker watching film and evaluating. Clearly he trusts his own judgement to make the right final decisions on players. That's because he has actual experience grading players unlike Hurney. He also said we would move forward and evaluate as he goes, he never said every dumbass in this office is safe. At this point how many staff members do you think he's actually had time to speak with? How are you gonna fault the guy for deciding to get to know the current staff first before deciding who needs to go?

Here's an idea how about we actually wait and see what kind of moves he makes before labeling him Hurney 2.0 off of his press conference.

Also PantherTrain this might help with your Panthers frustration...

Step 1: Place hands on either side of your ass

Step 2: Push until your head pops free

Step 3: Wash head, brush teeth

Step 4: Buy 1 way ticket to St Louis

i don't think he's a troll. i mean he may say he is at one point, but i honestly believe that he believes everything he posts. i think he really is just....well...i'll just say his driveway doesn't quite meet the road.

Wow.

Just.....wow.

I said this exact quote to someone else in another thread lol

On topic though... this guy has long time NFL experience as an evaluator for Super Bowl teams. That makes him an upgrade over Hurney's beat writing experience. What else is there to discuss on this comparison?

Don't forget that the Giants traded for Plaxico. It's not typical FA, but still big. I don't think that a team that has a pretty good core can sign big free agents. Tampa can because they don't have a lot of talent and lot of players in their first 3 years (cheap players). If you have a good mixture of vets, the middle and young talent, you can't sign big name FA. Look at the Eagles, won the Free agency and accomplished nothing.

I swore to the lord that I would stop poking fun at PT if Chud left, so all I'll say is, "Hi, PT!"

No manager with any competency is going to come into an existing organization and publicly deride the staff. You have to get them all working with you right off the bat in spite of what may happen in the future. For all we know, he may hate Rivera and our whole coaching staff.

That's your free tip of the day, PT, just in case you ever work your way up to a management position.
