In Topic: My biggest worry about Gettleman

Yesterday, 10:31 AM

The reality, after Fox, after Hurney..a lot of holes and a bad salary cap,situation has not helped

However, I do not see the Panthers going after and getting the best staff they could get and if the goal is to go young and grow the best teachers are needed..nor do I see coaches willing or accepting that they have to adjust to the talent on hand

And btw, the best teachers are not the ones we are comfortable with...the best teachers are the ones who challenge us to grow. Shula should have not been hired and retained for the OC position is my opinion and the fact we hired a passing coordinator to help hum should have been a huge red flag. He was hired when Rivera was expected to be a lame duck coach and no one else available and then kept supposedly for continuity for Newton...not the best decision

My concern with Gettleman is the constant use of salary cap to explain things like out of 7 o linemen only two being draft. Let that sink in a moment and tell me any other pro team in that shape on the oline...I simply cannot believe there were not serviceable vets with one to 2 years left in them to get us through rebuilding that aren't better then bell and chandler and some no names from Canada as starters

Same goes for that abysmal secondary...roman Harper ..seriously...a guy whose physical skills combined with his lack of desire to play...why him...was that really the best the panthers could do?

I don't know what to think

All pro teams go through adversity. The panthers seem more capable then others of creating and sustaining their own.

I think the reality too is that they got lucky and overachieved last year and the jig is up this year along with Gettleman gambling on the dine that isn't thanks to the stupid, selfishness of Hardy and Alexander.

What planet do you live on?

Gettleman picked up the fifth year option which almost every first round player in that draft got to. The reason dalton and Kaep didn't is because they were taken in the second round. Gettleman has been clearly space for cam.

I don't think you actually know what you are talking about here

There is no reason in this world that deal could not get done with Newton long term

Yes, the panthers could do x and y for a first round pick, but was that the right thing to do

My feeling is no

There are things that can be done in good faith and the panthers have failed that with Newton

Should Newton decide to test free agency, I will find you and remind you of your comments here.

There is a difference between being a pro athlete and trying to take a natural D Lineman and viola, suddently have that person become

a OT in the NFL.


Look at Thomas Davis, natural safety at Georgia, the Panthers decided to make him a LB, it took several years before he adjusted to that and that was on the defense.  


He was not going from d to o.


I read where only 5 of the 7 remaining Panthers Oline were drafted, that gives you a pulse check right there of the 'hard workers' but not talented athletes on the field.


i believe it was Gettleman who said 'you can't teach 6'5" ' when referring to Benjamin, not but Benjamin withtout the talent to run the route tree isn't worth much.


The Panthers are refusing to adjust their scheme to what those players can do, but, frankly, I'm not sure what they can do.


They need to find 3-5 schemes on both sides of the ball that they can run and just do it.  If they can't find at least 3-5 schemes then the coaching staff and GM are failures for fielding a team of players that either a) don't fit the scheme  B) can't grown into the scheme  c) do not have the physical skills for the scheme  or d) worse yet, the scheme needs to be thrown away.


I don't care if they run the wildcat a 100 times a game if they are successful and can score.  I don't care what they do, but for the love of god find something that offense can do...anything.

I am not exactly sure who Gettleman 's guys are

But what he did this year is not working

If I am Newton I use my leverage and say, show me the money, show me the plans or I am gone and be quick about it

As for me, if that does happen, I am done with Panthers PSLs because that is a clear indication we are the new Jaguars

Surely the organization is not this stupid

Why shouldn't he?

Gettleman has not taken care of business with him in an extension

He watches Dalton, kapernick, etc get paid more than they worth while he carries a tine with an oline that could not displace many college oline sand rbs that could not fall forward for a yard.

Now Cam go win
