Florio criticizes Gettleman hire, calls it "dog and pony show"

76 posts in this topic

Hmm... i would show you a link but im on my phone. But he more than likely said both.

He very well might have mentioned how he admired the Giants, especially considering our recent GM hiring. He's said this about a lot of teams. But he's always said that the team that he wanted to emulate, or be modeled after, was the Steelers. It's been the same tune since 1993.

He's always had an old guy crush on the Rooneys and Maras.

I wonder if he has a heart attack when he thinks about Rooney Mara.

Gentlemen was right about one thing and that is something Florio ingnored....his age. It factors in to why he didn't get other looks. Florio is suggesting no other interviews means he isn't as qualified

I dont think so. Ive heard him say on different occasions the Giants.

nah...the giants maybe recently, but for years it was the steelers.

this was in '08 but i could probably find more.

As to the substance of his postseason meeting with Fox and Hurney, Richardson said their goals were simple. Since he's come into the league, he's long expressed admiration for the Rooney family, which owns the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He said he wants to run his stadium the way they do, his organization the way they do, so it follows he wants his team to look like theirs.

"We want to be a physical team," Richardson said. "And we want to be able to run the ball, stop the run, and if you do those two things, you're likely going to have opportunities to exploit the passing game, specifically with Steve (Smith). We always want to be good on special teams.

"You know how I feel about the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Rooney family. I would like for the Carolina Panthers and our team and the way we operate our team to emulate the Pittsburgh Steelers, and John and Marty know that. That's the best example I can give them."

agreed. his age and his lack of self promotion.

he works. that's pretty much all he does. there's quite a few people in the corporate world who are the more quailified for upper management positions that get bypassed because others are better at marketing themselves.

in fact that can be said about any rank in most organizations.

Plus, in most industries...people tend not to look at the dinosaurs. Gentlemen was right about that...he needed a team willing to open up his age bracket as potential hires

I thought NBC lost credibility when they hired him. Just a little man with a big mouth. I bet his younger sister had to protect him at school.

the millions of stupid ass comments left on every article he publishes are infinitely worse than anything he has to say. dare i say they've even worse than the comments you see on pat's NFC south blog.

I love how he is lingering on the first half of cam's season like all of his critics and isn't willing to mention how much he actually matured in the last half(not saying he doesn't have more room to grow, obviously)... Another guy who is just digging out the negatives and ignoring the positives
