Gettleman has to be fired. And here's why.
He single handedly took a potential super bowl caliber team and dismantled it. I realize cap space was an issue but he made ZERO effort to even try to talk players down.
He cut 89. Yeah I'm still salty about it. This isn't just a Steve Smith fan complaining. It made ZERO sense to cut Smith. They lost money by cutting him, the man can still play as Baltimore is so clearly enjoying. How can you take a QB's #1 target and replace him with a rookie who drops as many balls as he catches. Don't get me wrong, I love Kelvin. He's going to be a star. Keywords "going to be". Steve Smith's leadership alone is enough reason to keep him here.
Are you seriously telling me Hixon, Ginn, and Lafell were too expensive to keep? I call BS on that one.
The O-line and secondary have been nothing short of a joke this season. I realize Jordan Gross retiring hurt a lot, but a stop sign could block better than Byron Bell.
If Cam isn't a Panther after 2015, Gettleman is the reason why. Cam literally has been given no help whatsoever. I realize that his accuracy needs work but when you have to get rid of the ball as soon as it snapped or you're going to hit the turf, it's hard to throw darts to sorry WR (minus KB and Greg). If I were Cam, I would want out. Our GM has made to be Cam has to win every game on his own with the "talent" that's around him and that's not fair at all. Peyton Manning could not succeed with this team.
All of this is going to ultimately cost Ron his job which is sad. You don't go from coach of the year to this without something going wrong in the GM office.
Gettleman has to go. And it needs to be ASAP.
You're wrong on almost every point here.
