#2702309 Why Blame Gettleman?

Posted by TheRumGone on 17 March 2014 - 12:50 PM

I think it was for the best. I think what we saw last season was the best that team could have done. It was obvious in the playoff game that they weren't quite ready for prime time. If we had wasted a lot if cap space resigning Mitchell, Ginn. Lafell, and Munnerlyn, we couldn't expect more than another early playoff loss.

I don't know that but I do know we would have to cut losses sooner rather than later. He's prepping this team to get young, and big so we have more years at a Super Bowl run

#2702158 Why Blame Gettleman?

Posted by TheRumGone on 17 March 2014 - 11:16 AM

Was that if he didn't cut him this year? I'm ignorant when it comes to his contract. I thought I read somewhere that it would be better to cut him next offseason. Also he could have at least attempted to negotiate a pay cut.


from my understanding it was this year. thats why i supported the move, but not the way it was handled.


and the key word from the agent was he wasn't asked to "restructure" not to take a pay cut.


restructure adds to the already ridiculous amount of dead money we are paying already for beason, gross, anderson and a few others.


The emotionality behind the cut, because this is Steve fuging Smith, is where a lot of misinformation has appeared instead of the facts. We don't know if smitty was asked to take a pay cut or he was. His agent said they didn't ask him to restructure, that is completely different than asking for a pay cut. In fact it's worse than just keeping the contract as is.


I'm bewildered by some of the moves because i honestly thought we would try to retain a lot of the team that helped us go 12-4. Gettleman has decided to just rip off the bandaid (minus stewart, something like 10+ million in dead money charged to the cap if we did that). I'm ok with this. We all wanted a revamped offense, there were always going to be growing pains because of the way a lot of the contracts Hurney formed. They made it VERY VERY difficult to cut his guys because the cap hits would be so high. In the end, when we look back in 3-4 years, i think it will have been the correct move. We'll see though.

I think Smitty is such a huge part of it. If Steve Smith is on this roster then that would make a James Jones signing that much better. Paying Steve Smith to play in Baltimore makes 0 sense to me. I also think he should have locked up Nicks, born and raised in Charlotte, played college ball in the state. His father even thought it was a done deal(and was happy about it) I mean come on. There are some Huddlers that could have made that happen.

I also think he should have kept at least one WR to help with the transition process. Now we are looking at a whole new group that will need to learn a new system.

Other than that it's pretty much a wait and see, O yea he brought in Roman Harper #comeonman


if we didn't cut him now we would HAVE to pay smitty 10 mil than 12 mil at age 36 and 37.


we will use that money to lock up Cam and Keek, maybe even possibly a FA WR or CB.


It sucks, and trust me i want Smitty here with hopefully Jones and Cochery, and the HN thing is bewildering. But I know DG is not stupid, I have no problem with trusting him. All these other posters with "he's trying to get rid of Cam" is BS.

it's the hardy tag and players leaving.


we will see if that was worth it or not. I think it will be in the end. CJ will probably be cut in the next few years. We rebuild with Hardy, Star, KK and another DE for the line.


Cam and Keek get locked up long term and go from there. Keep drafting well and a few splash signings here or there whenever we have the means.


Funny thing is people freaking out like we will be 2-14 next year, I still believe, as is, we can not only make the playoffs but make a run.

#2701660 NFL Free Agent News

Posted by TheRumGone on 16 March 2014 - 10:38 PM

Gettleman knew what he was inheriting and he chose to completely cap strap us by putting the franchise tag on Hardy for a $13.1M cap hit.  I think he misread the situation.  I think he thought they were close to a deal, that the tag would protect us from having him walk, then the deal could be finalized.  What he wasn't prepared for was for Hardy to be completely willing to play under the tag.  Wouldn't surprise me a bit if Hardy and his agent have simply called off negotiations and are completely willing to take $13.1M this season and have another go at free agency next year.  If so, damn if G-man didn't get played like a fiddle.


hardy said publicly he would play under the tag from day 1. gettleman knew he would be completely willing before he placed that tag on him.


give it time. lots of months left

#2701491 I Just talked to James Jones

Posted by TheRumGone on 16 March 2014 - 08:23 PM

i remember posting about james jones last year or the year before about him being a guy we should look at in FA.


Rook mentioned he was friends with him and that he seriously doubted he would want to come here.


this isn't some random dude posting because james jones talk has heated up on the Huddle. He's been saying this for years.

Who is the #1?


james jones/ draft pick


jones can handle the #1 corners. When he was the #1 in GB due to injuries he shined. He also had someone with a laser rocket arm throwing to him.
