Gettleman is getting absolutely destroyed by national media... STILL

You are correct...only a crazed lunatic would send Josh packing like that with no compensation. 

There was a single crazed lunatic at the wheel of the franchise at that point in time --- his name was Jerry Richardson.

Love how ppl pick and choose when they think Jerry was meddling.. Depending on who they want to praise or criticize..

So he was all in on not paying Josh 12 mil for 1 year but was hands off when Marty gave 160 mil worth of contract out in 1 offseason?? Huh??

Amazing what a team can do with a franchise QB.  Thanks Marty

Don't forget a DPOY candidate and 7 to 8 other All pro and pro bowl talent on the roster..

But like I've said .  We will actually get to see how good Gman really is now.. Right Now he gets to rebuild a roster from scratch.. Let's see what happens..

I do.. I remember Gross retirement press conferences having a underline jabs at Gman.. And Olsen and TD negotiation were getting to a point where they weren't going to show up to camp.. So we have a different view of the situation..

Beason nor Norman had character flaws.. 

Funny Part is the person he put the highest tag on was the player who did have character flaws.. That didn't work out well..

I don’t mean character flaws like how you’re thinking. Not ones that affect their ability to be on the field. Or issues that make them bad people like Hardy. Who signed the tag immediately. Norman’s flaw is his ego. He was all over the media that offseason saying the wrong things when he should’ve not said anything except “I’m letting the process play out” or thinking that an amateur agent could handle his negotiations. It was messy. And I love josh. And everything I’ve posted about him during that time backs that up. 

Gross’ quote on DG was something to the effect of “last year I didn’t like you very much (because he was forced to take a pay cut) but I think the organization is in great hands with you” 

you could also argue DG was right about TD and Olsen as both fell off rather abruptly because of age and/or injury. But they never badmouthed DG in public that I can remember. 

There is a lot of revisionist history among the fan base over DG. Especially considering that the person who fired him was an extremely toxic person who happened to own the entire fuging organization. He did some things extremely well, and he fuged up too. You can say what you want about MK. It was a terrible signing, we desperately needed a left tackle so I get why he did it but it also didn’t cripple us the way we’ve seen signings in the past do.  I never look at one thing and always try to see the broader picture. What I like the most about his time here was that he changed the culture and held players accountable for their play/pay regardless of being a fan favorite. We needed that change desperately and honestly it looks like Marty learned a few things from DG’s stint here.

I think we need a complete overhaul again to get where we want to go but I’ve been cautiously optimistic about this off-season because being the opposite just isn’t really a whole lot of fun.

I have no problem with your opinion.. Other we view a few situations differently but yeah I agree with DG change of culture and getting rid of the country club mentality.. But like you said he wasn't perfect he made mistakes just like all GM's do.. He made some ego choices that didn't work .. He made some just plain handling ppl choices that didn't work.. And sometimes he overestimated his scouting talent.. But all GM do so I acknowledge him being a okay to Avg. Gm..

But we will see how good he really is now that he is building a team from scratch..

What pisses me off is how people mention the success of the 2015 season in defense of Gettleman's time as GM yet simultaneously dump on players like Norman who literally had both hands in that success in several close games.

You want to give the man credit, but shoot daggers at the very players who made that credit possible.

That's not even mentioning players like Olsen, or Davis whom posters like frash have gone out of his way to bash repeatedly over the years.

Honestly I lose respect for posters that continually pie his drivel, because he is anything but pro-player. If anything he has proven to be more like Texans owner Bob McNair who all but considered players "inmates" who should just be happy and shut up.

The "franchise QB" in non-Getty years:

19-27.

Zero (0) playoff appearances.

 Losing season every year.

Yeah, we definitely didn't go to the playoffs in 2017 when he was not the GM.

That's interesting. Facts and history don't support your numbers. I guess he was here in secret during the 2017 season and we just weren't aware that he had gotten fired in July of 2017. Funny how that works.

Is there a latin phrase for "whoops, i was factually wrong"?

 

That being said, in memory of Game of Thrones finally being laid down to rest tonight, I found this nugget.

the thing about norman, and honestly, i don’t rly have anything against him. he’s had a productive career, he cashed in and made elite CB money which was smart on his part. everybody needs to do what’s best for themselves and if he could see he wasn’t going to make as much money playing in carolina as he would somewhere else, there’s nothing wrong with that. i love what he did in 2015. but just because he wants top money and the fans want him here, doesn’t mean the GM needs to either throw all of the money he wants at him or it’s scorched earth. 

the other thing about norman trashing gettleman is that this is his MO. trashing anybody he doesn’t like for whatever reason. and in the past he’s done it to:

OBJ

taylor lewan

pro football focus

michael thomas

the fans at fedex field

michael crabtree and amari cooper

the NFL

eric reid

...and i’m sure i didn’t come close to a complete list. he also got into physical scuffs with cam and smitty while he was playing here.

josh has his reasons for whatever public soundbyte or tweet that he wants to @ someone for, but it’s hard to keep up with all of it and i take it with a grain of salt. but whenever he wants to make a timely jab at gettleman, you have all these clowns on the huddle beating themselves off bc a player said something bad about gettleman in public...even though he’s probably ranted against half the league at this point.

Well, he's an idiot, so I wouldn't expect much. He's also the guy that rolls around attacking Cam with some agenda. Not too surprising he can't get his facts straight.

@Luuuuuuke! is @RIAnBOW aka @Billy_T.

If you're getting pie from someone who has had multiple accounts deleted, it's probably a good idea to bow out.

you are so phony woke and it’s pathetic. stop pretending to be so ideologically pure when you enthusiastically support a sport where guys deal with a lifetime of injuries after they walk off the field.

    • Imagine posting multiple paragraphs and the person you're addressing reads the first two sentences and was like wait, what? Looks to see who posted it, sees your name then laughs and stops reading.
    • So he’s a bloody pirate?
    • I mean...try to remove yourself from the equation and answer objectively whether or not you think it's sad that there are actually fans of a team who spend hours upon hours every week actively trying to convince other fans of their team (who are in contrast, hopeful and optimistic) that their optimism is unfounded and that their team actually sucks.  Again...this is a team you are a fan of, that you root for, that you've grown up rooting for....but a team which you spend a sizable chunk of your free time arguing on a message board is just a really terrible team with a terrible quarterback managed by a terrible GM.  It's one thing to be a "realist" and maybe roll your eyes at perceived homerism on these boards...but to be so unconscionably offended at the sight of optimism that you feel the need to pop into inconsequential fluff threads like "Teddy Bridgewater is a natural leader!" or whatever to say "Hey guys guys slow down...Teddy has been mediocre for his whole career! That's just a fact" is just downright bizarre and deserves some self-reflection.  Maybe it's true...but why care that much to spend an inordinate amount of your free time arguing that case ad nauseum across several threads?  The "homer" opposition is at least somewhat rational and justifiable because fans of a team are generally passionate in support of their team (outside of these boards) and don't take kindly to others trashing it. You seem to be a big-time Cam Newton fan...imagine if you were a regular on some Cam Newton fan forum and there was a contingency of posters going into every thread about Cam being a great passer and being like "Well, actually...check out these statistics of his completion percentage against other QBs".  Then you make a thread about no one having carried their team's offense as much as Cam in NFL history and then the same guy from the other thread was like "Well, actually...Cam is number 4 in total % of team offensive yardage".  And then you make another thread about Cam having so much fire and passion and putting his body on the line to win over and over again, and YET AGAIN the same guy from the last two threads comes in and says "Well, remember he didn't jump on that fumble in the Super Bowl?".  Then you call him out and you're like "What is your deal? Why are you even here? Are you even a Cam fan?" and he's like "Woah bro I'm a huge Cam Newton fan, I'm just being a realist...not everything has to be sunshine and rainbows". At what point are you thinking this dude just has a sad life?
