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

Gettleman isn't the type to toot his own horn.  Talking up aspects of the team at this point is to help build the excitement for 2013. he is also encouraging the players and showing he has confidence in the team.  That is what GMs do in June.  Gettlemen is a grinder and a hard worker not a glory hound.  If he thinks we have some holes watch for him to pick up some more players along the way.  He is not about looking good or being right, he is about building the team to be the best it can be.  He knows that once the season starts his success or failure will be self-evident. 

 

Actually Rivera did comment on the coaches in OTAs he just didn't include himself.  Much like Gettleman, they praise the team not themselves.

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?


You are the one that got me thinking about the relationship between Rivera and Gettlemen. Two football guys watching film and talking football. For some reason, I like that scenario. Thanks for that.

Rivera and Gettlemen are two peas in a pod. If all goes as planned, they just may be together for a long time. I can live with that.

There is no I in team. Well...unless you are RGknee. Oooh

It has always been WE in sports. Or am I somehow wrong about that?

Spinning it as though he was patting himself on the back is really reaching.

Blasphamy!!!!  Being positive on the forum is absolutely forbidden.  (sarcasm)

 

Well at least you would think so with the end of the world members we have.

 

I am with you Ladypanther.

 

Positive is far more exciting then being negative sky is falling mentality

I'm not liking our TE depth after Olsen. I really hope Gettleman picks someone up after training camp.

 Yes, no I in team, but there is an M and an E. So team could mean AT ME to someone like RGknee.

 

I'm not saying anything. I'm just saying...

He may be great but this is corporate boilerplate speak.

 

 

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.

 

Meh, I think he's pointing out the obvious, we did have some issues, they did get addressed.   You make it seem like he didn't get any of the coaches input on the player they decided to go after.  I'm glad he's confident in the direction that he's taken this team, and I am too.   We have cap space, we didn't blow up our roster, and we added talent.  if he's really looking for a pat on the back then I'll give him one.

I am not sold that our OL is competitive. We are certainly better at DT and the secondary is slightly upgraded but I am not sure how many games that will win us considering our schedule.Our OL is one injury from being in the same boat we were last year.

But there is an "M" and an "E".

 

Also theres many sports that teams arent involved in.  Track, tennis, golf...

Man... If I have to spell everyfugingthing out for everycottonpickinfugingnitpicker out there. I swear... I drink, and I occasionally win an argument with the with.

Ah hellz, you can't take much serially around here. It would drive you to drink. Maybe that is one of the reasons most Huddlerz post drunk more than twice a month.

Stress, you want stress. Try spending the first weekend of the month at the Hatfeilds, er, inlaws.
