Pretty safe to say that Dave accepted the Carolina job knowing things were a mess, and from what I can see he has done a pretty good job of not only getting our cap situation straight but finding players who "fly under the radar". What has been a weakness for years is now a strength(D-line), what we thought was going to be a weakness this year has turned out to be a bright spot(secondary) and our receiving corp has been up-graded. Give Dave a little more time and I believe we will have a team that can be playing for a SB every year... got to give the guy an A

A+, players he helped sign/draft have contributed early to our first winning record since 2008.

It is a cop out but I give him an incomplete.

This off season is going to be huge. Expiring contracts, extensions due, the next draft, a possible coaching search, a cap iceberg.

I like what he has done so far. I guess I would give him an A to this point. But we are going to see what he is really made of this off season

it's not a cop out..  I mean how is it that so many people have this burning question in their minds at this point?  

 

as if 5 threads (nevermind the very 1st one) asking this exact question hasn't been enough...

 

Here's your answer: It looks good so far.

I give him a B.  An A for cap management but a B for the draft.  He hit on the first and second round but the rest haven't done much of anything. He gets a B- for free agency given he brought in Ginn and Drayton but didn't bring in any upgrades to the 0 line despite the fact that we had plenty of money midway through camp. He gets no credit or blame for Rivera or Shula since he was stuck with them.

 

Truth is that Gettleman had to be delighted to get hired here given he had so many pieces in place already.  Most times  GMs come in and things are a real mess.  Here he came in and inherited a team that was 7-9 and already had a franchise quarterback and a good defense.

B+

 

That's only because he neglected Cam this off-season in the draft.

Solid A. He's had a no nonesense attitude that Hurney could have only dreamed of. I like his style.

B- for ignoring the oline and CB positions. Other than that, been great so far.

He signed white and Wharton. No way we have as many wins as we do if those two don't happen.

I give him an +S, its his 1st year as a GM.  Players take time to develop, FA take time to  gel and cleaning up Hurney's mess takes a couple of seasons.

A WHOLE PIE!

I see what people are saying--that Gettlemen did not support Cam---but we have 2 starting Guards that he found and signed.  We have a pretty dynamic #3 WR.  While not the best, reality has to enter the picture.  He was over the cap by $16 million.

 

A defense supports Cam..  It provides field position.  It does not require the QB to press to keep up with the scoring.  We have been in EVERY game, even when our offense was not getting it done.  With our defense, the offense only needs 2 TDs to win on average.

 

Players Gettlemen brought in that are upgrades:

Mitchell over Godfrey

Lester/Mykell over Nakamura

Ginn over Murphy

Blackburn over (injured) Beason

Scott over Hangartner

White over Norman

Star over Fua/Kearse

Cole over Fua

Short over Neblett

Florence over Dockery

Wharton over whoever would have played LG when Silotolu was injured

 

That is 11 players that were weaknesses last year he upgraded.  He did this while cleaning up Hurney's mess. 

While I agree that he has work to do, right now, how does he get anything less than an A+?
