NFL Radio: Gettleman Was On With Papa And Diehl

Trainmaster : 8/6/2019 10:56 am
I caught a decent amount of the interview while driving in to work.

He sounded very calm, confident. Obviously a “friendly interview” given it was with Papa and Diehl. I’m typing on my phone, so I’ll be brief.

He was asked about the secondary. Mentioned Bethea, Thomas and “Rabbit” as the vets. Still “... burping and changing ... “ the rookies and second year players.

He was asked about his approach to changing the team culture. Wanted “adults” in the locker room.

He talked about rookies and how the first thing the vets think when the rookies first arrive is “How will this player help us win?”, before the vets even begin to know them.

Papa asked how he responded to all the criticism given Gettleman’s resume. Gettleman talked about the great mentors he’s had, Accorsi, Shanahan etc and other he’s studied from afar including Walsh, Parcells and Belichick.

He summarized what he wanted of the players in one word, “Fearless” and reiterated “Adults”.

That’s all, off to work.

Others can add or correct as necessary.
I can get why players don't like DG that are found on the other side

I like what he's doing  
GiantNatty : 8/6/2019 11:04 am : link
but a little funny how he says they're still burping the new guys in one sentence, then says that he wants adults in the next.

thanks for the summation...
You can tell he considers Accorsi a mentor  
Greg from LI : 8/6/2019 11:05 am : link
Both of them absolutely adore the sound of their own voices.
It's nitpicking I know

but a bunch of fearless adults doesn't sound very intimidating.

Now, a bunch of vicious professionals...

Are you saying the "children" don't like Gettleman?
ferocious father figures?

grievous grownups?

Without Accorsi...

it's pretty damn clear Gettleman doesn't have this job. So mentor is a vast understatement.

Accorsi and his toupee should be donning gold jackets.

DG reminds of when TC was hired. I have a friend who is a Giants exec. I asked him about the players negative reaction when TC was hired his response to me was "tough $hit". I hope we get even better results than we did with TC.

Why are we thanking Accorsi? Last time I checked his "GM Tree" isn't going to be confused with Bill Walsh's "Coaching Tree"...

He doesn't need a tree. DG is enough to warrant thanking God.

FatMan in Charlotte : 8/6/2019 2:51 pm : link
typical thread involving Gettleman.

Nobody really is refuting what he says - they are just going after him for the fuck of it.

Again - by the way he was hired. Funny thing is - if Parcells hired Gettleman, bw would be calling him a God....
Slightly off topic but DG doesn’t get enough credit for the 2008 Super  
Ivan15 : 8/7/2019 9:41 am : link
Bowl win. The offense and defense relied on veterans picked up in a variety of ways including free agents and veteran castoffs.

Conversely, Reese got too much credit just for getting lucky with draft picks. He never could repeat that success.

DG definitely was the right pick for his current job.

Do you think perhaps he's trying to say the basic character of the man is solid, but in terms of executing NFL level technique and football IQ they're all very immature at the moment?

That is true. O'Hara, plax, pierce, uncle phill all played a huge part in that season. Plus the lb they got from kc whose name escapes me.

Presumably he had a large role in bringing those guys in.

Kinda funny that his pro personnel moves are are where he has currently stumbled.
If he wants adults in the locker room, why sign Tate?  
BH28 : 8/7/2019 10:47 am : link
Tate's been an asshole his entire care. Again Gettleman says one thing, but his actions don't reflect what he says.

it's a Twitter meme which indicates sarcasm. Obviously it's very clever and hilarioua.
I know he's restocked the OL & defense

What's his PLAN?
Can you say the defense is restocked

Don't bother, this guy is the Pollyanna's Pollyanna. Everything is amazing! The Giants are overflowing with All Pro talent now! Praise be to Dave Gettleman!

Pure shill, nothing more.

That's it.

Sam Madison is of course another key fa signing on that team.
