I still think it will be a few years before we can begin to start judging DG.

For the most part, this is heavily a Hurney squad we are winning with and Riverboat seems to be the biggest change. Yeah, DT play has been big but the wins would have been there the prior years if Roverboat showed up.

Great read- he was the guy I wanted when we started looking at candidates and I'm glad he's done such a good job in his short time here.

 

The rest of the story obviously has yet to be written, but the preface and the first chapter certainly hold a lot of promise.

Certainly like what I've seen so far. 

 

8 picks in the draft this year and maybe a little more cap wiggle room. We'll see what happens.

The bones of this team are Hurney's, but in terms of being an actual GM, Gettleman has had to clean up a lot of Hurney's mistakes, i.e. obscene contracts that left us in cap hell. He's done a great job of that to ensure not only that we get to keep our core guys, but that they don't hamstring us for the future. There's still more work to be done in that area but so far I'm confident we've got the guy for the job.

He knocked his first draft out of the park and brought in many quality FAs that have been big contributors to the team this season--Mike Mitchell, Quentin Mikell, Teddy G, Colin Cole, Chase Blackburn, etc.

 

Gettleman is a damn boss.

They may be Hurney's players and coaches, but he was all buddy, buddy with them.

Gettleman told them to start winning or GTFO.
