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."

FNZ guys say they're hearing (unknown from where) that Brandon Beane won't even be employed by the Panthers much longer.

Makes me wonder if perhaps Beane was the guy telling people that he was a candidate.
Yas NFC south update, "I will be back shortly with analysis on this move" (as soon as I am done reading the huddle)

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

What are you, 12?



um people usually retire around 65. you seem him doing this into his 70s?

and no arrogant little sh*t

To be fair, the purposelessness in whatever you post amuses the rest of us

Cool, I'm only on here for entertainment purposes and to read Mr. Scot posts(it's a bit stalkerish but the dude always has good info).

I ran it through Google Translate. It came back with this:

I'll be back just as soon as I can figure out a way to explain how I was actually right about Brandon Beane being a serious candidate even though it looks like he wasn't even interviewed.

Can't say I'm displeased with the hire. :)

He was never guaranteed a job under the new GM, JR told him that when he got the bump up to Interim GM. Like I said in the other thread about Hurney. He ran a thin and lean front office, because he did some much work on the personal side of things and on the other side was Beane. They did the work that teams usually hire 12-15 people to do. That's just the way Hurney wanted it structured, expect lots of news once the press conference is over on new staff hires in the front office on both personnel and operations.

That's news I'll welcome.
Glad we got the most qualified guy.

I wonder his long it'll be before the fans turn on him.

I predict the first week of free agency.
Some good news and a reason to be optimistic is just what we needed right now. Things are going to be okay. This is what I am repeating to myself.

Easily, if he wants too. This isn't like your typical corporate job. Plenty of FO people, and coaches, work well into their 70's in the NFL.
I remember thinking as he was being interviewed "never underestimate the power of 'old man' bonding" :lol:
I predict pantherclaw turns on him the moment he starts cutting dead fat from the previous coaching regime and starts building a modern NFL roster devoid of over paid runningbacks
Giants beat writer (Mike Garofolo) set to be on WFNZ at 6:05.
From this point forth the Carolina Panthers will be known as THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GETTLEMEN! LOL First time I have been able so say this in a long long time, but great job Big CAT!!!
Bad hire, but then this is the Panthers.

He'll be collecting his pension in three years. Hardly the man to steer the ship in the long term. Gonna be going through this process all over again soon.

young decisions are made by every GM.

I don't let it affect me as it does others.

:lol:

Another likely consequence is that autocorrect will cause numerous people's posts to name our new GM "Dave Gentleman".

He is a year older than Bill Belichick, where are the calls for Belichick to start collecting his pension?

Pantherclaw couldn't even wait for Gettleman to fug up once before white knighting him and berating the rest of the board

decisions don't age

There were morons on here that wanted us to bring Bill Polian back after he got fired by Indy. He's fuging 71 years old.

Age isn't an issue. He can, and very likely will, remain in the NFL for 10+ more years.
David "G-money" Gettleman, been earnin' and burnin', snappin' necks and cashin checks....booooyaaaa bitches

but the age though....only downfall

ugh.

his age isn't a problem. he's not old.
Yeah! Very impressed by the hire. This guy has a lot of talent evaluating experience and that is what this team needs.
