gettleman can negotiate contracts a hell of a lot better than hurney thats for sure
Take a look at this year alone.
he would have re-signed Edwards and Munnerlyn to ridiculous deals, not allowing them to hit the market. The money Gettlemen saved by allowing them to go fishing, and by not jumping into free agency with a fistful of dollars, allowed for some quality players to be signed at a bargain price.
Let's not discount the draft. I know it is too early, but solidifying the middle of the Defense should pay off in a big way. When was the last time Marty drafted a good DT? Um, never, I think. But what he did at the bottom of the draft with the fifth and sixth picks told me that he is a visionary. People were outraged when we signed a RB. Now Stewart is banged up again and DWill is 30. I can see both players off the roster in 2014.
If Gettlemen does this again next year, we will be one of the most feared teams in the league. We might be now.
