Inconvenient Truth GM Edition(Hurney vs Gettleman)

Some of you guys are missing the point of the thread. I love the Gettleman hire. I have high hopes that he will lead us to the promised land and I think Acorsi pointed JR in the direction with Getteman.

That being said I choose not to prematurely mentally ejaculate over it this soon.

It's okay to be excited but some of you act like a girl who had her heart broken from an abusive relationship and just because the new hasn't punched you yet after first date you think he's Prince Charming.

The main difference is that you see bargin free agents that come in with at least one or two great skills that are relevant to their position at a relevant cost. Ginn would have been signed for 3 million under Hurnery's pattern.

Ginn, far from perfect is elite speed and top 5 returner.

DJ Moore is a ball hawk and can offer great depth in zone cvg.

SS Mitchell has good speed size and hits well with actual film of his play..he is caught behind Tyvon Branch. Nakamura was a warm body who got quite a contract actually..crazy.

Needs are being met not signings of HBs at premium prices, Kickers like Mare getting a premium contract, Nakamura who you could just scout in his Madden attributes to know he offered very little(joke)

I will reserve a grade till I see a whole offseason but so far the trend is good.

What he has proven so far is that he places proper value on players, something Hurney has never done. That in and of itself makes him far superior to Hurney. While the players he has signed have to "prove" themselves, he has done a masterful job thus far in my opinion.

His Value on every free agent we re-signed this year is the same value Hurney put on them. Look it up.(same contract values or less when Hurney was here).

The other teams outside free agents, I have high hopes for because Gettleman's resume speaks for itself in terms of experience and being a part of highly successful teams. However is it not just a tad premature at this point to say he's done a masterful job on players that have never even been to a mini camp with us yet?

Excellent post. I guess one place where I differ from the masses is Hurney get's a huge pass on the 2009-11 free agency period from me becuase of JR. (He's still to blame for the Everette Brown,Armanti Edwards, Terrell Mcclain,and Clausen picks).

No every other player that Hurney signed as a free agent, that Gettleman re-signed.Contract values are the same.

I get it, you don't like my opinion on the matter. Thats fine. Bring some good research without stretching the truth or digging for some hole for a quick one liner to tell me how what I have said is so wrong?

I wanted to hear opposing views, hence the point of the thread. Granted you seem more interested in trying to land clever one liners for reasons unknown(some would suspect an appetitie for pie) vs discussing football.

Are you really comparing Hurney to a top tier in-house evaluator and tape guru who has six trips to the Superbowl and three Lombardi trophies under his belt with off-season moves? Holy ****.

Get back to me when Gettleman has actual room to work with. This is a poorly constructed argument if I ever saw one. Yes, Hurney signed Dwan, Nakamura and Tolbert but he also placed us in Cap hell (outrageous contracts) and drafted duds beyond the first round.

Its not an argument.It's me voicing my opinion on seeing several remarks exaggerating the genius of the moves that Gettleman has made thus far and the blind hate for Hurney becomes it seems like the cool thing to do. Who gives a fug about him now that he's gone, before this thread you rarely see me mention his name anymore.

I just wanted to have a conversation about it but I do blame myself somewhat for not knowing how to tactfully state that I disagree with others opinions on here without coming off as arrogant or what have you. I at least give in depth reasoning behind my thought's and basically that's all I want for others who care to participate in this thread.

Lol

Everything in a three year span of offseasons was JR's fault

Oh and Gettleman can't differentiate himself from Hurney to me even though he inherited a team 16 million over the cap

Funny how the so-called "inconvenient truth" is a pretty convenient perspective for Hurney homers

I agree with you on this..we are still recovering from 10-11 where if that did not happen the extensions and such would have been better spread out.

It probably even hindered/restricted the 09 focus as well which is when Hurney started to go pick trade crazy bc he probably only got permission to use the Draft to help the roster.

Add Corvey Irvin to that list..

I was too a Hurney apologist as I would have resigned the same players minus the Godfrey, James Anderson contracts. but again bc of the 10-11 seasons I think the only way Hurney could sign guys was to overpay and overestimate market value..it really did him a disservice.

Addressing need positions with 7th round picks in trades was a fatal flaw. He signed guys from nowhere where as Gettleman is signing guys with some measurable success and game film.

Chase Blackburn is better than James Anderson IMO and 5 times the lber Dan Conner was. He has a plan in case TD (who is still a major inj risk) or Beason go down. Also huge competition in the Cb position is nice.

We had too many mediocre players have guaranteed jobs bc no one was better.

Hurney had his shot man. This is Gettleman's first run and he brings a lot of excitement to the franchise. He doesn't have that much to work with and most of us know that. Of course Hurney would have have also been cheap, we had nothing to spend.

A masterful job of the cap, the way he resigned our own and restructured, and the veteran presences he has signed in our secondary. We were sixteen million dollars over the cap, he has done an amazing job thus far. You need to look at the entire scope of the offseason and not just the signings themselves.
