Gettlemen has his hands full immediately. Offensive coordinator, draft, and salary cap problems all at once. The draft should be the easiest issue to address as he is probably already familiar with the players and combines have yet to come.

I hate for the offense to have to learn a new system, so like the idea of Turner. However, I don't think Gettlemen will want to do that as it is an extension of the Sand Diego connection. I suspect the decision lies squarely on Gettlemen so should be an interesting selection.

I have no idea how the contract negotiations work out. Richardson has treated all those guys well, it would nice for them to relent some. I see no way Gamble is coming back with that contract and coming off IR. I know some of you have posted things about how little can be achieved by cutting any of those guys, so again it will be interesting.

Gross could be a casualty in all of this too which would be a shame. I can see him taking less, he is a Panther through and through?

What are the Giants biggest needs and can we do any business with them?

I could be wrong but I am about 95% positive it is usually up to the head coach who the coordinator is. Usually. Ron Rivera was the one that chose his staff.

Agreed, but I would say the GM does have some say so.

If I were Gettleman I think my first priority is to sign Greg Hardy to an extension. No Hurney-contract, but you have to recognize that he is a potential cornerstone defensive player.

I also look at this year's playoffs and I see what the game is like when the veteran QB gets time. The Seahawks scored a weekend low of 28 points!


After watching Wilson's game, I'm excited to see what Cam could do with a good offensive line and decent run game.

Signing Hardy is a priority. Hardy had to be the most upset of anybody to see Hurney go - sad, but so true.

Hurney also never really was aggressive about drafting for the OL. Gross was a find, with Kalil and Silotolu this year, but other than Jeff Oaffa, Hurney hasn't done anything.

OL is was actually one of Hurneys best positions he drafted, look on other teams there are starting OL that we couldnt keep. Mathis, Schwartz, Bernado, Center for Skins

After watching and listening to his press conference I couldn't help but think he sounded like a mob boss. I'm not sure if any of you picked up on that, but he'd say "How you doin?" to all reporters asking questions. Had that Jersey/NY accent. And up here in Chicago you almost see guys that are connected every day, especially in the construction industry which is what I'm in.

Lets start the nickname for Gettlemen as dun dun dun dunnnn... The Godfather. He pulls all the strings and in my opinion can take this franchise to the top.

I have to say, I absolutely love the guy's accent. Even the way he says 'New York' is cool.

Maybe that's the Sopranos fan in me, I don't know.

Bottom line: The guy is impressive. He clearly has a plan in place and will show no mercy in his talent evaluations. I can't wait to see how he approaches the first draft.

I would be curious to know which players he was responsible for bringing to the NYG organization.

in his presser he mentioned martellus bennett and sean locklear... considering he was a 'pro' guy i would assume all trades and FA stuff went through him.

shaun o'hara
antrel rolle
cc brown
david carr
chase blackburn i think
chris canty
plaxico burress
sam madison
kerry collins?
kareem mckenzie

those are all of the notable FAs i can think of <_<

any word on who Gettleman brings in to help him with cap and other things?

Pat Yasinskas (1:23 PM)
Not yet. May stay the same. Panthers have a very capable cap guy named Rob Rogers, but the general public doesn't know he exists because he keeps a low profile.


FYI a ? I asked Pat about Gettleman

What do you mean he's a clown? What do you mean, the way he talks? What? Clown how? I mean, what's so clownish about him?
