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."

so an "NFC South Afternoon Update" that didn't have anything about Gettleman just appeared and disappeared from yas' blog

i guess they're editing it with the news.

very curious to see if he leads an overhaul of the panthers' scouting department, both pro and college. the giants had a very solid track record in free agency while gettleman was pro personnel director.


My top question right now is who he might bring with him.
Good Hire, was one of the two I wanted so glad to see it happen



And..... LMAO at all the people that got bent out of shape over Beane just being in the discussion, you amused me greatly.

come one you knew that last part was coming from me.
So everyone that says "Championship!" in a sarcastic tone will actually mean it this time?

He'll probably report that Brandon Beane was the second choice.
I bet Beane will be GM in the next 5 years.

abrams?

not realistic, but i'd take an abrams protoge. apparently he's been grooming people to do what he does every year.
Gettleman has been with 3 teams, all of them perennial Playoff teams with good solid drafting when he was there including Buffalo in the 80es/90es which included drafting Thurman Thomas, Denver where they drafted Terrell Davis and then the Giants where he became Pro Personnel Director and picked up free agents such as Kerry Collins (who led them to a Superbowl) Shaun O'Hara and Plaxico Burress..

I Approve and i hope he teaches his protege how to be like the Giants

I'm still thinking Gettleman is going to take Beane under his Wing and groom him to be the head burrito when Gettleman leaves.


I have my doubts.

Gettleman is a true "football guy". I'd expect that to be what he'd want in a successor.

Off season broski.

Joe Person ended his article by saying that Beane was considered for the job. lol

To be fair, the purposelessness in whatever you post amuses the rest of us
It's pretty clear that ol' Beanie was never in serious consideration for the job.
This is an excellent hire, Ross was the "sexy" candidate but the longer this process went and the more I read the more I wanted Gettleman - he seemed like the most qualified candidate by a long shot.

He'll probably report that Brandon Beane was the second choice.

I've never thought the whole time that we would be going with Beane, as perviously stated: why would we bring someone in to do a GM search if we were just going to hire from within?

if it doesn't smell right, it probably isn't.

twas the reason I had my fun with it.

I have my doubts.

Very true. Very true.

We also don't know what was talked about behind closed doors, I'm only speculating but who knows.

It's a great Hire regardless. Who ever he picks will be our heir and if he learns form this man, we'll have a good to great GM. At least one that knows how to manage a Cap.

abrams?

not realistic, but i'd take an abrams protoge. apparently he's been grooming people to do what he does every year.


The scenario I pondered was whether the Giants might offer Marc Ross a promotion because of his getting so many interviews. If they made him the Assistant GM and moved Abrams out, then I'd happily take Abrams as our cap guy.

This is an excellent hire, Ross was the "sexy" candidate but the longer this process went and the more I read the more I wanted Gettleman - he seemed like the most qualified candidate by a long shot.



but the age though....only downfall

I've pretty much wanted either Ross or Gettleman the entire time, and either one was going to be a win for us so yeah
The more I learned about him the more he definitely seemed like the best man for the job.

I'm very pleased. LOL still with the Beane knob polishing. Get over it!

but the age though....



Doesn't matter at all. The guy is barely over 60.

What are you, 12?
We've got a General Manager. And what looks to be a damn good one at that. Hooray!!!

Now all he's got to do is restrucuture some if our stars, cut Nakamura, get us under the cap, draft well, and then we'll be golden.
