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."

They did get it to the front page at last.

However, Pat Yasinskas is still "analyzing".
Have you seen his picture? He looks a healthy 61. I am pleased with this hire. Maybe he can change the organization even if he isn't here for 20 years.
Why do people act like 61 is old? Coach K is 65.
but but but jR is gonna screw is us cause he's like boss hogg!. . .

wow theres some people that have to feel pretty dumb right about now. I wonder what thats like to constantly fug up and feel ashamed about it.
Was hoping for Ross, but honestly I'm not mad about this hire at all... I think the plan is to have Gettleman groom Beane into GM material while taking care of the team. Overall I think this is a good hire (now it's time for me to shed a tear for the Ross bandwagon :'( )

Pat Y has analyzed, however I'm afraid he has analyzed a guy named "Gettelman?" Not sure who he means.

This is huge
There's obviously a lot of posters in their 50s/60s on here.

60 IS old. Especially for a guy that has never been a GM before.

Being rumored that Beane won't even be retained at all.

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.


Also, there are folks wanting Arians as HC and he is 60...

Also someone named "Gettelaman".

I thought he did a decent job managing the team with Hurney's release.. What ever is best for the team maybe JUST MAYBE we can steal Ross :cool: lol

Part of me wonders if the buzz that Beane was a serious candidate might have been floated by Beane himself, or via his agent. That could be seen as a reason to drop him.
Marc Garafolo of USA Today said in the end the Panthers chose Gettleman over Ross according to a tweet from The Drive.
Matt Harris was just thrown out by the old Giants Beat guy on WFNZ.
Garofolo also says there's a guy named Matt Harris who works in the Giants FO that Gettleman might bring along as a possible "cap guy".

Edit: CPF96 beat me to it :lol:
Ross is officially the new Rivera. Always the bridesmaid.

He'll get his shot eventually.
Nice!!!!! Great news!!

It's pretty clear that ol' Beanie was never in serious consideration for the job.


JR wasn't paying Ernie Accorsi a hefty fee to effin' hire BEANE.

Loved the logic of those that out of one side of their mouth accuse JR of being cheap, but out of the other side think he would hire Ernie Accorsi and pay him a hefty fee to do jack. :lol:

Anything is possible.. I tell you one thing if I knew I was last in a race for a job, I'd try my best to get my name out there lol. Yeah JR might have b**ch slapped him and told him to get out "That's not how we do things around here son"

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.



Occam's Razor, indeed.
60 is the new 40
Matt Harriss (yes, apparently that's how it's spelled) is listed on the Giants website as Director of Football Operations (no bio).

Amusingly enough, that's the same title Brandon Beane held before being named interim GM.
Nice! Good hire. Maybe JR is finally starting to stop settling and start going for the best.
