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.

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.

 

Did you just get out of the Looney Bin? Or did you fail to follow the Panthers' offseason moves at all? Gettleman restructured: Kalil, Gross, Williams, Beason, Nakamura, Olsen and most recently Charles Johnson. Gettlemagic freed up almost $20 mil.

 

The contract issues do still exist, but did you expect him to erase years of poor cap management in one measly offseason? He made some serious progress.

One thing I really like about this guy is his age...........yes I can tell you that when you get into your late 50's early 60's and have performed within an industry for over 30 years and still last let alone accelerate in your career path............well you get a nose for the right decisions that the younger GM isn't as savvy with yet.........
