So much for that whole "holding out for the Panthers" thing.

On the topic, it tells me he's gonna be really careful about signing contracts rather than just throwing money at whomever has an above average season.

Newton, Kuechly and a new GM ready to build around them...

Why exactly does our future look bleak?

Here you go...

Dave Gettleman: It's about getting it right

Good title. The importance of "getting it right" was something he emphasized a couple of times.

Another thing: Said after he arrived here yesterday he spent so much time working that he wound up never even saying hello to Jerry Richardson. This was because he wanted to "hit the ground running".

Gettleman felt like he owed Richardson an apology for that. If I were Richardson, I'd say "no problem".

This tells me he's more about doing the job he was hired to do than playing office politics or kissing the owner's ass.

One important factor to me: He stated that the evaluation and roster decision process has to be "unemotional" and "not sentimental".

Welcome words.


#2098047 Gettleman Press Conference?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 January 2013 - 12:22 PM

Draft well. No free agents of note. Same ole poo.

He isn't even adding new blood to personnel department.

Same poo.


Not what he said.

He pointed out that building from the draft is best but said you fill holes with free agency. Also said that getting into big name guys is "tricky" but then said he and the pro guys at the Giants "never missed" which tells me he's gonna do his homework before signing a guy.

As far as the personnel people, he said he's not just gonna come in and kick everybody out and bring in his guys. He wants to work with the people here and get to know them. After that, if he needs to make changes he'll know whom and where.

I certainly hope he works to bolster the line but don't see how he will influence anything regarding the style of play unless he fires the current staff and hires his own. Maybe I misunderstood...


He said his duty is "to make everyone better" and specifically talked about working to make Rivera better.

That, plus one of his primary jobs with the Giants was to scout other teams, pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses and contribute to the planning for how to beat them.

So yeah, I think he'll affect the play on the field.

Specifically, he and his staff are going to scout opponents, look at what kind of players/roster we need to beat those opponents, and act accordingly.

I figured he'd sound like someone's granddad. Instead, he sounds like Don Vito Corleone with a Boston accent. So I was expecting a grandfather but got The Godfather.

(between his Boston accent and Richardson's Southern drawl, the team may need to hire an interpreter)

Asked to self-describe, emphasized being "very direct" and said "Ron would agree with me on that" which makes me think he might have told Rivera some things he might not have wanted to hear, but may have needed to.

Obviously I loved what he said about "winning games with big men" :lol:

Not the type of guy to say something just to say something. When asked for specifics about the state of the team, stressed he was still evaluating, so he won't be someone who just pulls an answer out of his ass.

Overall strikes me as one of those guys that'll put out a good face with the media but in private will tell you exactly what he thinks on no uncertain terms.


#2097821 McCoy going to Chargers

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 January 2013 - 11:05 AM

I'd say he's living off Peyton Manning's rep at the moment.

Off of Josh McDaniels to some extent too. McDaniels actually called the plays when he was head coach in Denver. Similar to how it was under Henning, McCoy had the OC title but not all the duties.


#2097801 McCoy going to Chargers

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 January 2013 - 10:59 AM

McCoy was only listed as an offensive assistant when we went to the Super Bowl. He didn't even become the QB coach until later, and even then it was considered in name only under Henning.

He didn't really take the full on duties of a quarterbacks coach till Jeff Davidson took over, and those weren't exactly Delhomme's best years.

The only thing he's remembered for here is that goofball barrel passing drill.

He was never the OC here under Fox.

Dan Henning was the OC when we went to the Super Bowl. Later on it was Jeff Davidson.
