For those who watched the press conference (or those who will watch it later) what do you see/hear?Here's the link for those who didn't see it.Dave Gettleman: It's about getting it right
Also, that right now he does not have the answers because he just got here yesterday, but that he will grind it out to solutions. Look for a very fast pace fluid roster overhaul with options. Look for tons of restructuring if players who wont make the money they will make elsewhere to stay here as well... look for solid bolstering of both lines, and a dedication to get big uglies like never before. Be prepared to run the hell outta the football... and we may see an incorperation of horizontal passing attack to set up the run.
I liked him. He has tons more personality than Hurney, or Rivera for that matter. Seems like a straight shooter, who doesn't care about accolades. He's a collaborator which is good to know he's willing to hear the opinions of others in the front office. He said something along the lines of it doesn't matter who got it right, as long as it's right. He mentioned that you don't have to spend a lot to get a good player, which seems like a direct comment to separate himself from Hurney in my opinion. He doesn't seem like the type to panic, as he reference how Tom Coughlin was on the hot seat before he won two Super Bowls. He believes success starts with a solid O-line and D-line, something he learned from Coughlin. He wore a horrible tie, and his breath smells bad.
I certainly hope he works to bolster the line but don't see how he will influence anything regarding the style of play unless he fires the current staff and hires his own. Maybe I misunderstood...
Sounds like Hurney2.0
One important factor to me: He stated that the evaluation and roster decision process has to be "unemotional" and "not sentimental".Welcome words.

Link for the video of the presser will likely be up in a little bit for those who couldn't see it live.First question was asked by one of the "Drive" guys from WFNZ. He's been introduced to Charlotte media now (something significantly less scary than New York media).
