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

aside from gettleman, cam, kuechly, and a couple other guys...the negativity is deserved.

the team can't win. gettleman is gonna fix that. florio is talking out of his ass.

One thing that has puzzled me about JR is that he has loved and admired the Giants organzation and wanted to model the Panthers after them. But he let Hurney do what Hurney had fone for the past five years. It makes no sense. Better late than never i guess, with the Gettleman hire/philosophy.

You're thinking of the Steelers.

With the millions of sports analyst and reporters out there (at least it seems like millions) someone was bound to not like it. I guess we will see if he is right.

It's the Steelers, it's always been the Steelers. It's why we play them every fuging preseason since we got a team.

Plenty of people find jobs as a result of social networking. We don't live in a meritocracy. Maybe Gettleman has great talent and hasn't been getting interviews or opportunities because he doesn't know many people around the league that well.

I'll wait and see how he performs. If he's a great GM, I couldn't care less if he was hired because he knew someone or because he's white or because he went to Wake Forest.

At the end of the day we all just want people who will help the team win.

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

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."
