Gettleman pleased as Carolina Panthers wrap up minicamp

Recommended Posts

Lots of good stuff here.  I am going to trust Gettlemen as a talent evaluator until he proves otherwise....his resume suggests he is good.  Like hearing what he has to say.

 

We feel we’re really strong in some spots, important spots. I feel really good about where we are,” Gettleman said. “Cam’s had a really good spring in all facets of the game. Really at the end of the day, I think this is a club that understands when it’s time to go to work. And they’ve really had a heck of a spring.


 

 

Sounds like high praise from Gettlemen. The rest of the article worth reading if you are a fan.

He may be great but this is corporate boilerplate speak.

 

 

“I thought we had a real solid offseason. We obviously had issues early on. We addressed them. I think we’ve come through the other side pretty well,” Gettleman said Thursday.
 
“I feel good about the way we’re positioned right now. Obviously, you’re not going to know until training camp when the pads go on. Like everybody else, you don’t know.”

 

 

Our off-season was all Gettleman's actions.The "issues" were addressed by him. He did the "positioning."
 
He is praising himself. Typical GM speak.

Mmmmh. 

 

These quotes sound good:

 

 

 

Franchise rushing leader DeAngelo Williams, who restructured his contract during the offseason, got plenty of reps this spring, as did fullback Mike Tolbert. The Panthers did not run a lot of zone read during OTAs, and it appears the option package will be de-emphasized under first-year offensive coordinator Mike Shula.

In the passing game, Newton demonstrated great timing with tight end Greg Olsen throughout the spring. 

 

 

 

As Gettlemen would say: 'Let's see how it plays out during the season'?

The good thing is, he could be right.  Nice to have hope anyway.  

 

I think that because Gettlemen has so much more real football experience than his predecessor, he might be able to make a difference in several areas.  Why not be positive?

Agreeed. 

 

Gettleman can probably assist, give Rivera some good advice and suggestions regarding various facets of the team (and not just drafting and contracts), unlike his dubious predecessor.

Apparently HP will not be participating in the annual offseason circle jerk.

If you can't be positive in June then when? Skeptics say they will be if we are successful during the early part of the season. But they won't, because they will still be the cautionary maven warning us that things can change with one injury to a key position undoing everything in a heartbeat.  Skeptics will remain so even in the face of success.  It is their nature. They get spurned once or twice and start withholding  their emotional commitment. The problem is that only those people who fully commit themselves by putting everything on the line can really enjoy the full emotional spectrum of the rollercoaster ride that is an NFL campaign. If you have no skin in the game you can't be all in. I encourage everyone to jump on.  Feel free to wait until you are convinced things are going well before making a commitment, but remember that the longer you wait to jump aboard, the shorter the ride. Why miss some of the ride when it could be a good one. After all, if we start off slow again, you can always jump off and let us all know you predicted it. Until then, take a chance; Jump on board. That way you can play both sides against the middle. What do you have to lose????

No and I didn't imply that.

 

A similar press conference tomorrow would be Rivera commenting on how well the team was coached during OTAs
