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+?

Kat, you have to remember the mess Hurney left--

OL:  Wharton, Kugbila (IR) Scott, Chandler (moved to OL from DL)

CB:  Munnerlyn, Florence, Moore, White

 

While there were no big money moves, these have served us well in the Cap hell Marty left us in.  I do not think we could have done better with no money.

B+

 

The next Draft or Head Coach search could easily turn that into an A+.

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


Disagree. Incomplete is a legit option.

Bleys is right.

He's done a commendable job cleaning up our salary cap. Though some of it was only pushed back to later years. Still concern there.

I'm obviously happy with Star and Short, but the Kugbila pick is still troublesome. Ginn has been a good addition to our receiver corps, though rather unexpected. I'm disappointed with the Hixon acquisition, really nothing more than a waste of money and roster space.

As for the OL, I think he could have done a little more sooner to alleviate our issues there. Wharton isn't enough.

Overall I'm generally pleased with the job Gettleman has done so far, but I cannot offer a grade until the season is over.
