He's a lot of fun to listen to. He knows exactly what he's doing. Let's see what he does a week from today..

good write up, but it's 'dimes', not 'times'.

also, i'd go so far as to say that he was glowing about norman's progress. he came back different. now he has talent.

I fully expect Norman and Alexander to be the two most improved guys on D.

Ok beleve or not i still get confused, so can someone please clarify.. "Trading up" does that mean like if we are pick 14 and want to move into the top 5, is that "trading up" or "trading down" in the draft?

Moving to a higher pick is "trading up".

it gets confusing.

not going to make it worse.

he was saying that if you are sitting on 14 and you want to trade that for a later pick and pick up another later pick or two that you might be exchanging a dollar for three dimes or basically giving up a really talented player for 2-3 players who could be ok and you might lose out on someone special. better to get a great player who will be around and starting for a long time rather than a couple guys who might contribute a little bit for a couple years.

agreed. i think that alexander will be starting in the next couple years. he'll be replacing CJ or hardy on the roster.

Funny how people are still aspergers about trading down after clamoring for it the last two drafts and seeing the players we've ended up taking and how phenomenal they've been

I'm glad he emphasized losing close games as being a red herring that people irrationally latch on to. Winning close games is not a coaching ability, it's randomness, doesn't matter if you're Belichick or Singletary. You want to win a lot of games? Score a lot more often than the opponent, the end.

The man seems to know how to run a damn football team so far, and exudes confidence. He makes me want to have complete faith. However, I have learned my lessons with this team. I will support them 100% but I'm not calling anything higher than 8-8 until I see something. Something in particular.

SOME GOD DAMN RESULTS

Did he mention Alexander specifically or are you guys just making predictions? And what exactly was said about Norman? That he came back from the offseason a different man?

Mr. Scott, given the press conference what kind of draft implications can you infer after listening to what Gettlemen had to say?

And I agree with everyone. Gettlemen really seems to know what he is doing and if nothing else I like that he takes an active approach to scouting these guys. He's a talent evaluator and hopefully that shows in the near future through draft picks and free agents. Kinda wonder if he expects more from Colin Cole than we do considering he said there are no glaring holes.
