Gettleman hired as Panthers GM

Jan 09 2013 05:03 PM carp24000 Carolina Panthers
CHARLOTTE - The Carolina Panthers announced Wednesday that Dave Gettleman has been named the team's general manager.

Gettleman comes to Carolina from the New York Giants where he served as the Senior Pro Personnel Analyst last season after working as Director of Pro Personnel the previous 13 years.

"I was very impressed with Dave's experience and think he will be a very good fit for our organization," Panthers Owner/Founder Jerry Richardson said. "He has an extensive background in personnel and comes from an organization in the New York Giants that I hold in high regard and played an instrumental role in their success."

Dave is extremely qualified to be the general manager of the Panthers and will do a terrific job,.I'm thankful for all of his hard work and friendship while here with the Giants. The Panthers interviewed two of the top personnel executives in the NFL in Dave Gettleman and Marc Ross, and couldn't go wrong either way, in my humble opinion


Giants GM Floyd Reese on Gettleman

Nice, everyone else on there went back to what they were before Hurney was fired. lol Beane is still listed as well at his old Operations job.


Will be watching that page for changes :D


So glad to see this and the timing of it - I had convinced myself that we wouldnt hear anything till next week when we would all get a big disappointment!


More than one person one here was sure that the Panthers were taking things too slowly. But as of right now, three other fanbases (Chiefs, Browns and Jets) are still waiting to hear who their new GM will be. And the Chargers only completed their search earlier today.

KC seems to have a guy they're centered on. Not sure if the Browns have even conducted any interviews yet (focused on the head coaching search at the moment, which seems ass backward to me). And the Jets? They seem to be scaring off potential candidates.

So in the end, their timing didn't turn out to be all that bad. And even more important, I think they got the right guy, something a bunch of folks were dead certain wouldn't happen.

Kudos to the team.

If he wants to play for peanuts, yeah sure



He could really be a guy Gettleman brings in. Phillips is an UFA and he's currently injured. NYG still has Rolle and Stevie Brown, so I can see Phillips testing the market.
Fantastic hire

poor dude has a ton of cutting and work to do!
Didn't lose a fan here.great hire, bring Ross with you.

If he brings this guy Matt Harriss with him from the Giants, I think he'll be off to a pretty good start.
found this tidbit

Giants GM Jerry Reese said in a statement that he is thankful for Gettleman's hard work and friendship over his Giants tenure.
"Dave is extremely qualified to be the general manager of the Panthers and will do a terrific job," Reese said. "The Panthers interviewed two of the top personnel executives in the NFL in Dave and Marc Ross, and couldn't go wrong either way, in my humble opinion."
Co-owner John Mara added, "I have mixed emotions about this. Dave certainly deserves to be a general manager, but I am very sorry to lose him. He has been instrumental to the success we have had and we are certainly going to miss him. He will do a great job for the Carolina Panthers."

Always good to hear a team say they're sad to lose the guy you just hired.

My point being I don't think we'll have money to bring the guy in unless he wants to take a below market deal.

We have to wait and see what they do with cuts and restructuring before you can really make that statement.

I'm curious as to the length and size of his contract.


I kinda figured you for a size queen

Even if we cut and restructure a bunch of guys, I'm hard-pressed to see how we're going to be players in FA. We need to cut/restructure guys just to get under the cap itself. To talk about adding guys like Phillips, who while he has been injury prone, was a 1st round pick at S (and when healthy plays like it) seems a little bit out of the realm of reality. But hey, anything's possible in the NFL.

Gamble and a few others are getting the "BOOT". A couple others are going to have to restructure their contracts. I can see Gettleman bringing Phillips in on a 1yr contract. Vet DBs these days arent getting the contracts they once used to get. A lot of 1yr deal these days.

I am just waiting to see what a "Good" Cap Manager can do with our contracts before I either get my hopes up or think FA is a lost cause this year.
All of you harping about his age wouldn't think he was over 45 looking at his picture. And I know an 85 year old WW2 vet or has to beat 30 year old women off of him. Age is a number.
Rotoworld thinks this move keeps Beane in the picture as future GM.
Get a Wikipedia for this man!
Anybody think Charles Johnson will have to get a redone deal?
I like the hire, now please bring in local hero Hakeem Nicks.
Went over to a few Giant fan forums to see what fans were saying. Mostly well-wishes, a lot of "sad to see him go", others who didn't know what to think.

Had to laugh at one fan reaction though. He posted "Damn you Ernie" :lol:
Somebody explain to me why this is a good hire(not saying it isn't). I just know nothing about the man.

he took the Giants,Bills and one other team to the SUPER BOWL

What we're his responsibilities with the other teams and how does that qualify him to be a GM?

Actually part of six teams that went to the Super Bowl. Three won, three lost.

He basically took the giants from sub par to being a really good team in the NFC east
Mostly GM's have to work out

Contracts
Free Agency
Scouting for the Draft
Hiring and Firing Personal
Stadium

He's main goal is Building a championship team To Carolina.
He will fix our cap 17+ million over.
