"Dave would come back in the middle of the night half the time because he was scouting our next opponent," Accorsi remembers. "A lot of times, he wouldn't know I was in there because the door would be closed. He'd come in and all of a sudden the music is loud and of course, he thinks he's the only one in the building, so I used to pound on the door, 'turn that damn music off.'"

Gettleman may have eventually let Accorsi sleep but not himself. From the time he got to the Giants' pro personnel department in 1998, he worked harder than anyone in the organization. Few people anywhere paid more dues. After nearly 30 years behind the scenes in the NFL, they could have easily added up theoretically to franchise quarterback's salary. Now that the dividend has finally come in, people are starting to realize that Gettleman may be just as valuable.


It looks like as of now Jerry hired the right guy!

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.

Meanwhile in Cleveland, the team that turned him down twice... :lol:

If this team makes it anywhere cloae to the Super Bowl in his first season at the helm, you'd have to say he's GM of the year.

When he took this job I said he had to be extremely happy. Not because of landing the job but because he had a number of pieces already in place. He had a big cap number to solve but he had more talent on this team than most teams who change GMs and are in the rebuilding process.  Most of us felt that the Panthers had underperformed the last 2 years going 13-19 and that things would turn around.  Many here thought it would take a new coach, though......

Excerpt...

"He was a hit right from the start," Accorsi remembers. "You could walk in there at any time and ask him about the fifth defensive back for the Denver Broncos. Boom, he didn't have to look it up on the computer. He knew the guy. He knew him cold. He would talk about him. He had tremendous recall on every player in the league."

Mara concurs.

"I told Jerry Richardson at the time I never met anybody that knows as much about the personnel in the National Football League as Dave," he says. "You could question him about any team, any position on that team and he'll give you chapter and verse on the individual player right off the top of his head. There aren't too many guys like that."


Good stuff.

Gettleman is a damn boss.


He hasn't really gotten into any of that.... IMO. He had a good draft (Hurney-like though) and did well in FA (unHurney-like)

The contract issues still exist. He didn't really get into any of that. Yeah, he gave Beason away for free to his buddies which big picture was good but that was all he touched really.

Gettlemen will prove himself as he sets to tackle Cam/Luke/Hardy/the fact no WRs outside an old 89 have deals going forward, and deals with the Hurney baggage of Williams, Stewart, Godfrey, Johnson, etc.
