Still loving Gettleman?

239 posts in this topic

Are you referring to tiger7_88? He literally became a fan of the team because we drafted Cam Newton. He's an Auburn Tigers fan. Ask him yourself.

What exactly do you think the "tiger" in his name means?

If you need any other assistance following along in this thread, let me know sweetheart.

Could you please provide the requirements it takes to become a gee-whiz JEN-YOO-WINE mega-fan such as yourself? I'm sure the team would prefer to pare down their offerings of tickets and merchandise only to the true-Carolina-blue such as yourself.

Special players/employees are treated differently but if they aren't producing anymore they are no longer special for the present or future. Steve has been special for the past 10+ years and he deserves alot of credit for that but going forward he is no longer special.

It is kinda like a car. It has been the cornerstone of your life but after 10+ years the car is starting to breakdown. There comes a time when you say man it is not worth taking this car to get fixed anymore.

I've been working in the software industry for the same company for about 16 years now. For about the last five years, it hasn't been unusual to see about one "special" employee a month get the "pack your stuff in a box and thank you for your service, you've got 30 minutes to get out the door" perp-walk.

But millionaire Steve Smith found out through the media something he should have already assumed if he was smart: that HE is being evaluated just like every other damn player on this team.

OH NOEZ! G-MAN DONE DISRESPECTED SMITTY! :rollseyes:

Yes I did take it as an insult to Smith and I believe that Smith was bothered by it as well. You don't tell the media that you're evaluating Smith while speaking of him in the past tense. You are right about one thing though, words do have meaning.

He didn't use the past tense.

My guess it is about the money we are paying him 

 

That is it. Gettleman doesn't like to overpay. Smith is great, but not a no 1 WR anymore.

"Steve's had a great career"....

 

You're right, that's some strange bizarro future imperfect tense.....oh wait, no it isn't....

He's the number one WR on this team whether some of you choose to accept that or not. He's not going to find a guy that outplays Smitty in 2014 bargain shopping in FA or at #28 in the Draft.

I know it is hard for Panthers fans to understand, but he is doing it right.

I loved gamble really wish we couldve worked something out with him tbh. but the team is heading the right direction so i cant complain really.

Anyone who bashes G-Man is a Grade A moron like AceBoogie (you know, the guy that brought you "Star will bust"). This is what we asked for when Hurney bankrupted us and failed to find draft prospects outside the first round.

I haven't been on here a lot lately because I'm in school, but you're going to stop putting fuging words in my mouth. If you bring up my name get your fuging facts straight or you're just like Joe Person. Find me a fuging quote of mine where I said Star will be a bust. You're worse than the fuging media when it comes to misrepresentation.

I'm not a fan of Gettleman so the fug what, that's my opinion and if you don't like it then you know what to do.

Would we have been 12-4 without him? There is no other GM I would rather have right now.

That's a question that can't be answered. We were trending up when he took over the team. The biggest reason for our success last season was Riverboat Ron. We were in close games the last two seasons and piss poor coaching decisions got us Loses. This year he made the right decisions and those same games turned into wins.

The big question moving forward is "what is Gettlemans strategy gonna be". Does Gettleman go all out defence or does his priority become building an offence around Cam.

If he wants the opportunity to consistently make the playoffs he needs to do both. Quite frankly, he should be perplexed why 3 years ago our offense looked quite good with basically the same players as last year.

 

I know we need better throwing options for Cam but to me that is just part of the problems.
