When former Giants G.M. Ernie Accorsi was hired to help the Panthers find a new G.M., the first name that popped up in league circles as the prime candidate was Giants executive Dave Gettleman, given his relationship and friendship with Accorsi. And even though Gettleman wasn’t even interviewed for any of the other G.M. openings in the current hiring cycle, he won the dog-and-pony show in Charlotte.


People can criticize all they want though, I still think he was a great hire.

florio makes some inflammatory remark about a franchise, large/active fan forum quotes it and links it back to him...florio gets what he wants. more traffic. more link juice power.

Hey look. We went with Rivera who had been passed over 10 times (or whatever it was). Why were we the ones to pull the trigger?

I think Gettleman looks great on paper and it will be 5 years before we can evaluate him.

I didn't see anything particularly negative in the piece. He's just rehashing old news.

His analysis on it suggested cronyism

Florio must have caught the clap at Myrtle Beach in his younger days. I can't figure out why this guy is so down on Carolina.

I refuse to click on the link. So I have to ask, does he even offer another possible GM hire in the article? It would be incredibly stupid to bash the hire and not provide what he thinks would have been a better hire.

Like I said, negativity is good for business in this type of media. Just look around.
