Still loving Gettleman?

Recommended Posts

So in his first year he cuts Gamble, and forces Gross into a restructure.  Gamble retires.

 

In his second, Gross retires, G-Man treats Smitty like a has-been, and doesn't even bother with Munnerlyn.

 

Hurney was loyal to his guys to a fault.  Think Gettleman is doing it right, or is he the anti-Hurney?

12-4 in his first year as GM. Yeah, I'm good with him so far.

In all seriousness, the moves he's talking about making are ones that Hurney would never had or did make, which is ultimately the reason we were a mediocre at best franchise when he was at the helm.

Cyberjag is the guy that still wishes Fox, Turgovac, and Henning were still on our coaching staff. Nothing to see here.

So he cut a 30-something year old corner who had obviously lost the will to play (as evidenced by sitting out the whole year with a torn labrum and retiring the moment he was cut) restructured a left tackle in his 30s while the team was in cap hell from hurney, made an "evaluating" comment about a 35 year old receiver whose signature season was 10 seasons ago, and is holding firm on a 5'8 cornerback who seems to only be useful as a nickel corner and thinks he is worth way more than he actually is. Whats the issue here with any of these things?

I thought it was fairly clear that Gross restructured because he knew he was going to retire.

I'm fine with him for the most part. He's done good things here, and he's an intelligent football mind.

I don't think Gettleman is dumb enough to move Steve Smith. He just needs to be mindful of the media, and how they perceive comments, and create stories out of thin air. Like last year with Cam.

He played hard ball with Munnerlyn a year ago too, I think he'll end up re-signing.

Gettleman don't care bout no media perception, he's from the mean streets where they shoot from the hip and keep it real

Werent you just comparing him to Hurney saying he treats DEs like Hurneys running backs,

Getting personal with the players is why Carolina always finished 7-9 or 8-8.  When you trim the fat and keep the players hungry, that's when you have sustained success.
