Still loving Gettleman?

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.

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

I love him more than ever. I want to have sexual intercourse with him.

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

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.

If we're going to over invest, I'd much rather it be two very talented DE's versus two aging running backs. Not even comparable.

I love G-man from a business and personnel perspective.  He just needs to work on his PR skills when it comes to discussing business.  Yeah it's all "cool" and "cute" to be a straight-shooter, but you have to develop some tact as well.  You don't want to alienate players of Smitty's caliber and historical importance to the team, otherwise your straight-shooting style may become counterproductive.

For too long we suffered with a Jerry Jones-esque GM. A moron that could not conduct good business and thrust his team deep into mediocrity. Now we have a real GM and I couldn't be happier. The Smitty situation hurts me, no doubt, he's my all time fav. But even I know Smitty is almost done. I want him here but I'm a fan, I get to be attached. Gets is the GM, he is not afforded the same luxury.

It's no big deal in the offseason, but it isn't something you want to spill into the regular season once things really matter. Which is what happened last year with the Cam comments, and leaving it out there to linger, and continue to spin in different directions with no response or correction is bad for the team. It's okay to be no nonsense, but when dealing with players vitally important to the success of your franchise, you've got to be a little more careful.

How anyone can not have a positive opinion on Gettleman is beyond me. I care about winning not Steve Smiths feelings.

Gamble needed to be cut, with all the injuries and lack of production. Gross was not forced into a restructure, he did it willingly and Gross was going to retire regardless. He clearly doesn't want to risk an injury that could affect the rest of his life. He never treated Smitty like a has-been, he merely answered a stupid reporter's question by saying literally nothing. Then the media twisted it and made a big deal out of it, like they always do. Munnerlyn is looking for too much money so we'll let him hit the open market. When he realizes teams won't pay him that much, we'll make him a reasonable offer and he'll come back. Gettleman has no issues.

Don't think that other players aren't looking at how Steve Smith is treated.  His "feelings" may cause repercussions throughout the organization and the league as a whole.  No need to piss him off unnecessarily, or any player for that matter.

It's still early, but so far I am very pleased with Gettlemen.
