Gettleman on 610am - Summary of Interview


Best Answer TANTRIC-NINJA, 02 May 2013 - 08:29 AM

To add to the last two bullet points: 4.3 speed wr he mentioned was Jacksonville State's James Shaw.

Said 2 days into OTA's shows Ginn has "good enough" hands and they feel good about him. Spoke about possible expanded role in the offense for Ginn taking the top off and acknowledged his incosistant hands. Also mentioned sometimes guys get penalized bc they were "overdrafted" and never lived up to their draft position while speaking on Ginn.

When asked about possibly adding TEs he reverted to his "the answer is sometimes on the roster" he spoke about Nelson Rosario being a big strong kid who can contribute... would lead one to speculate that he is going to get a major opportunity to get a job while they will evaluate FA talent at the position.

Asked about having the on paper toughest NFL schedule he answered, "They have to play us!" credited Rivera for that swag.

When asked about drafting secondary he said he felt the roster has guys that developed and improved : mentioned DJ Campbell specifically and J Thomas..then added "you don't know what a good pass rush does for a defense.." -love that.

I have to say Gettleman seems to have a direct plan, vision and stays disciplined and I am real comfortable with him running the show.

He seems like he will not be afraid to make tough calls to secure the long term future for the teams success.

Hurney managed the draft as if he was using a draft guide that was outdated so it had some picks we all loved with big names(Clausen, Jarrett, Everette Brown) bc most of us loved immediate post draft Hurney if your honest with yourself. Go to the full post

I know this counts for nothing, but I've met Nelson a few times and he's a good kid... easy to root for. I half-jokingly asked him if he could hook me up with a pair of those fancy vapor-jet gloves (with the logo in the palm) one day to save me from spending $100 on them in the team store, he said "sure, come with me" and I followed him down the path from the practice fields to the stadium. He went through the gate and came out a min later with a pair. I was so grateful that I asked him to sign them for me (he doesn't get asked to sign much).

 

EDIT: Here's a pic to satisfy the "pics or it didn't happen" contingency, LOL

I think that most of us saw the interest in KK and knew he woudl be in play at #44.  What surprised everyone was taking him there after they took Star.

 

Yea, agree. I think we all knew it in the back of our minds that it could possibly happen. We just didnt want to believe it.

I'm pretty sure a lot of people did.

 

Not really. Most people here including myself wasnt a big fan of Short before we drafted him.

We all wanted Cyprien or a receiver.

Psychologically, it was in the back of our minds.

I was thinking we would go DT at # 44 because Gettleman emphasized how deep the class was, I don't think Gettleman honestly expected Star to be there at # 14 and when he was there he was too good to pass up. 

 

When the Jets took Richardson and we took Star, I think Gettleman expected a run on DT's so I think he was pleasantly surprised when Short was still there at # 44 and again decided there was too much value to pass him up, even though we had already addressed the position at # 14.

I'm not saying anybody here babe Ruth called it but I think that most people saw the interest was genuine and felt he was quite possibly the guy

It's why I was pretty positive we weren't going DT unless Star fell and I'm certainly not the only one who felt that way.

Last year as a UDFA. Out of Ucla. He was a receiver in college. Tall kid with good hands they say.


Cat went to my high school, and we never have any NFL talent coming from El Camino in Oceanside. So I'm rooting for him.

I'm rooting for Rosario, Williams and Bryant to make the squad. If we were able to get something out of Kearse, Thomas and Dockery last year, then who knows?

On another note, I thought Shaw had 4.5 speed. He registered a 4.7 but claimed it was an error.

thanks for the recap.

barner will be williams replacement. i think that's probably the big news. kind of funny in a way that we'll be replacing a first rounder with a sixth rounder....but that's because the value of the position as changed so much as well as the reality of just how easy it is to get a good one.

dead horse.

i hope he's right about hixon. considering the amount of time he spent with him in new york I'm sure he knows what he got. one thing to remember, tho, is what he said about never having too many good players at one position...don't think that because we didn't draft a WR doesn't mean the interest wasn't there in the draft and that hes settled on the corps as is.


With hixon what matters with him is if he stays healthy, he's a very capable #3 but it's his health that's the concern. Dead horse.
