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.

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.

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.

Hurney picked out the ingredients but couldn't cook worth a damn.

John Fox would still have a job if Hurney would've gotten him a qb earlier, not overpaid Delhomme and others, and been a GM instead of bff's with the whole roster...I could go on but I'm at work and plus I dont like defending obvious points.

It's a known fact that Marty Hurney left this team in salary cap and contract issue hell but  so far Dave Gettleman  has done a great job playing the hand he was dealt.

 

It's a given the Panthers have major issues with our current group of free agents,up coming draft selects and needed up grades at certain. positions. I can think of no one I'd rather have to try solving these issues than Dave Gettleman.

DG filled gaping holes with a bunch of second and third tier free agents that where sitting on their sofas when he called and UDFA to make this thing work this year. Along with the draft he got this train running using smoke and mirrors along with a bunch of duct tape. To be in the position we are in now with the condition our secondary was in,our defensive line / offensive line full of holes,and lack of WR talent at the start of 2013 is amazing. Give that man another draft and some spending money to play with and watch out.
