These are the types of guys we are going to sign due to Hurney fuging us over. Gettleman is getting the best players that he can possibly get all within his restrictions. People bitching over this move know very little about football.

I am getting a little worried that we are starting to lean OL at 14.

Smith
LaFell
Hixon
Gettis
Ginn
Pilares
Adams
Edwards
Bryant
Shaw

Doesn't leave a lot of indication that WR would be high on the list of priorities.

Could also be a smokescreen, though.

Hixon is going into his 6th season and has played with a great QB....

King is right. Odds are this isn't the type move that makes you better


It adds depth and is an instant upgrade over Murphy at WR and on Special Teams. Good enough for me.

He had 1400 yards in 5 years....

Define better?


Two of which he was injured. By better, you have to watch the tape. His athleticism and ability to catch "tough" passes, seperate him from everyone but Smith and Lafell. We have a weird mix of receivers. Hixon makes us a better unit overall, believe it or not.

The funny thing about this off-season isn't that "Gettlemania" is amazing, it's that this is what GMs are SUPPOSED to do, lol. We've just never seen it before. Look for this type of off-season from here on out as long as he's here.

Are you classifying people as bitching....when they simply are telling people who are acting like a 6 yr player is finally going to breakout now that he is away from a future HOF QB...to come back to reality??

He is a body. I haven't heard anyone bitch about it.

I suprisingly agree 100%. Pie

Why be a dick? Why not let people be happy? We finally have a GM that knows what the hell he's doing, after a decade of stupid, and you can't let people be happy? What kind of self-righteous asshole are you?

Re Gettis:


I don't get it...


He has not gotten an opportunity under Rivera because he plays favorites and Gettis clearly isn't one of them.


I wonder if that was Rivera or Chud. Also, they might have not felt confident in his recovery.

‚ÄčI too like Gettis. This year will tell. One of the great things G'man has set up is a lot of competition. Except for Smitty...no one is set. Whoever is on the roster will have to earn it, and hopefully know they have to earn it every year....even every game.

Injury prone players who never produce....tend to remain that way. Never made us better in the past...

I'm fine with the move. A body. A hope for things to somehow be different...but that's about it.

Pretty sure I have no impact on if you are happy with a move or not.

I was simply pointing out....it isn't bitching to claim he most likely isn't going to breakout and be something he has never been before now that e finally is here a half decade into his career. We need new bodies and he was cheap, I am fine with the move.

Bottom line is if Armanti Edwards had been playing for another team and Gettlemen just signed him to a 1 yr deal....people would praise the move and applaud Gettlemen for "getting it" and being awesome. Just a tad over the top.

Absolutely not. You are a bit of a negative nancy. I value your opinion because there are partial truths to them sometimes. But this is an upgrade from what we have. The guy can make catches and plays that none of our wide outs besides Smitty and Lafell can make. Were happy because Gettleman made a move that makes us a better team overall.

lol at people thinking this would make us not draft Patterson or Allen at 14.

To all those praising Gettle, you know that's crazy right? He's been here three months and we have yet to see a single snap from a team he has put in place as a GM...in all of history (less he was once a GM long ago didn't think he was)?

There were better players available but I understand he is doing what he can with the situation JR has put him in (no cap room).

CRA is right, just bodies. Even Gettle knows that. It will take time for him to get going with FA. He has little to do with this season. I believe he has like 90% say on these draft picks though, with Rivera little to none, no way to really know just speculation as is 99.9% of the huddle.

He was a star pointing upwards until the New Meadowlands unsettled turf took his knee out. Came back and made a badass TD catch (New Meadowlands again), landed akwardly and tore it again. 2012 was pedestrian but I think his best is yet to come. He won't get a ton of TDs but he can move the sticks. Adept, savy 3rd receiver that can get the job done I would compare him to a more physical Jabar Gaffney. He gets to play on grass at least 10 games out of the season with the Panthers.
