Nice article on Gettleman

Recommended Posts

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.........

He made us a playoff caliber squad and saved us about 20 million in one off-season. If you ain't sold by now, then you never will be.

Well, we're only a playoff caliber squad because of Cam and his running ability, and he didn't draft him. In fact, there were talks that Cam might not be his type of QB. Let the man earn his accolade. This is still mostly a Hurney team absent 2-3 starters. Nobody really know what his image of this team is. For all we know he could decide to go full retard and draft 7 defensive players in hope of building the perfect defense with no offense to complement it.

For all we know, he could draft 7 punters this year. Since thats the logic youre going to use, are you going to hold this against him as well? In mere months, he solved a vast majority of multiple years worth of contract and roster mistakes. No one is saying hes the greatest GM that ever lived.

But excuse people for being optimistic that the man who built the late-2000s giants and turned us into potential super bowl contenders over the course of a few months, is here for a while.

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.

 

We only have 7 picks in the draft this year, we have no 6th rounder.

I seriously doubt that.

Look at how the comically absurd number of games we were winning.....yet lost in 2011 and 2012.

An aggressive Ron with that offense.....easily wouldn't of had 2 losing seasons. He played it back the book in tons of games putting it on a weakness to finish out games.

Old Ron was in just about every single game.....Riverboat wouldn't of played it safe putting a weak D in so many bad spots.

And how many wins did we acquire with our lackluster pieces on defense in the last two years? Say what you will but Star, Short, Mitchell, Lester, Florence, White, and Klein have all made impacts this season. Without them, I doubt we'd be 10-4.

Without RR changing his coaching style..... we would be a 6-8 win team again. Which is why we started off the season looking just like the panthers of old

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.

Hurney was a coaches GM....Jake was Fox's QB at the end
