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."

Can't find a Gettlemannnnnn **Eddie Vedder voice**
The anti-Hurney cometh
Can we now stop listening to that former Panthers play by play guy who(who's name I cannot recall) seems to have everything negative about this franchise? According to him his "gut" feeling was Beane. The guy has no connections in the Panthers FO, so stop it. He's as good as predicting things as NJPanther.

That's what I wana hear (and Jerry Reese said gettleman was his mentor, also a huge positive)

Meh, it's the internet, it happens.



Not trying to bust your chops, I just love instant karma lol.
I'm definitely pretty happy about the Dave Gettleman hire. Personally I've wanted Marc Ross since Hurney was let go, but Gettleman is probably more qualified and obviously impressed more in the interviews... so as a Panthers fan, I have to say that it has been a good day.

Time to get Gettlemanhandled!! :goodjob:


That's the best one so far lol
Good...glad we didn't hire a reported "buddy" of Rivera. I don't want my GM to be anyone's buddy. Really wish JR would have allowed him to make the decision on the freakin coach...Rivera's ass would be out.
I'm pretty fuging ecstatic about this.

1) It's not Beane
2) It's a dude who is reportedly a very salt of the earth type person that can come in and clean up this mess
I'm still thinking Gettleman is going to take Beane under his Wing and groom him to be the head burrito when Gettleman leaves.
And lol at Pat Y predicting Beane was gonna be GM, he's also getting old and doesn't know what the fug he's talking about.
Awesome.

Gettle Cooked
The more I dug into the potential candidates the more and more I was impressed with Gettleman. He eventually was the person that I wanted most, so I'm ecstatic.

If Beane is truly in line for the job in the future, might as well have him learn the right way instead of the wrong way of doing things.
I shall now kneel before my Panthers poster and praise the Football God's for this act of mercy.
I almost feel sorry for the Beane!
Fug me that is awesome!
Will there be a presser?
3 super bowl rings sounds good to me
whats his age though 61? i would have liked ross solely on his age but im still super happy

Will there be a presser?


Next Week sometime, might be on Monday.

Sweet...I'll pie and rep anyone who can find me some good reading material on him(the more the better).


His profile in the GM Candidate thread includes links to stories about him.

Then you'll love the sound of his 6 superbowl rings.

Agreed. And what a better teacher than this guy right? Things are looking up. Feels good man. Feels good.
