What a rocky start to the Gettleman era.


We're not in the gettleman era yet

We will still be in the Hurney apocalypse for another season or two due to him going full retard in the draft and with the huge guaranteed contracts

How many times do you think Gettleman really said WTF when he got into the specifics of the numbers?

I can agree to that, but it's hard to make chicken salad with chicken poo. But why add more poo?

No complaints from me, I'm just glad we signed someone.

If we are expecting this guy to be a major contributor we are in for a long season.

If it is a non-guaranteed, low signing bonus move....it's basically a risk free signing. Playing with house money. For potential depth, not finding a really bad side to this. It's not like anyone in the building on Mint St. thinks this guy is in any way capable of being a competent replacement for Gamble. They may make some lip service to that fact and laud them as the greatest things since sliced bread because that's what FO guys usually do after a signing, but everyone knows it's a red herring.


But feel free to continue freaking out like my 8 year old.

It isn't his fault. Hurney left us in a terrible position. Gettleman has to do a lot of responsible cleaning up before we can do anything that will excite the fans. At least he is being smart even though it sucks we can't go after any big names. We were in the worst cap shape of any team in the NFL and by 2014 we are going to have a lot of free money to spend. That's the goal and he is on the way to getting us there. 2013 may suck though, but hey maybe we'll get Clowney.

I thought 2014 is supposed to suck even worse than this year cap-wise...

Cheap veteran presence.
I wouldve went after Marcus Trufant, but guess Rivera wanted his Chargers guy.


This was more of a Gettleman idea than Ron's. Dave has done his homework and apparently feels Drayton can help us.
