Great article and i agree with it. He is not here to win a popularity contest, he's here to makes the Panthers relevant in a way that would mirror the Pats. We all complained while the team was being run by the Hurney model. We all can see how the Patriots never get too attached to anybody aside from their core and Tom Brady. The rest of their team is expendable and this is why they're relevant EVERY YEAR. I'd much rather sacrifice one season if it meant 10 good ones then to go all in on one season and have 5 bad or mediocre ones.

Gettleman is the Huddler who picks a team in the mock offseason and then doesn't sign in for 8 months

this made me laugh right here.

People need to relax, I bet everyone freaking out will be singing the praises of the Panthers FO by the end of the season.

 

Your overreactions are keeping me entertained at work though. Thanks.

 

As soon as an FA WR signs with another team it's the same 20 people blowing up every thread, insulting GMan, and than patting each other on the back for their terrible jokes they think is funny.

I would like to see us sign a few players too, just like everyone else. But I also think many here are being naive if they think Gettleman doesn't have a plan, or that he is willing to sacrifice 2014.

 

My guess is he has a list of players he thinks will be cut June 1st after other teams see what they can get in the draft, and a further group that may get let go in camp. Chances are they will be older rentals to get us through a year or two while he strengthens through the draft and gets our cap in order. Remember that players like Dwan Edwards for us and Carlos Rogers for the 49er's were both picked up in August by their respective teams. Just because we aren't filling holes now doesn't mean we won't fill them with decent players.

 

I suspect that many of you would feel better if you heard Gettleman talk in more depth about this issue, but it is not his obligation to show his cards to the fans or the rest of the league. Patience is required.

 

If we hit September and the team is made up of scrubs, then blast Gettleman. It's too early right now.
