Has Gettleman spoken since the season start?

Genuine question.
Doesn't the GM usually speak during a bye week or something?

I am not sure.
DG has not spoken and did not speak during the entire

regular season last year.

That included the bye where some people thought he would but that was Reese's practice, not DG's.

At last year's bye, I went back and looked at news reports during DG's years with Panthers. As best I could tell, he did not talk during the season there either, including during their 15-1 year.

Gettleman

Does a press conference during training camp which he did and he does one at the end of the season (like he did last year). He has not done any press conferences in season

from anyone in the organization is posted on here within minutes of after they say it. I'm pretty sure if he said anything in public you'd know.

Do not talk during the season
To speak about what?  
Br00klyn : 9/16/2019 3:40 pm : link
going 0-2? thats what the head coach is for. Honestly the less we hear from that clown Gettleman and his miserable Boston accent the better
I'm sure that he speaks every day

I don't see him as the silent type
He's too busy working out new material  
jcn56 : 9/16/2019 3:46 pm : link
at a comedy club somewhere. Those hot dog and donuts quips don't write themselves.
Wonít hear from him until January..

Reese spoke at the bye, Gettleman doesnít.
To say what? "Yes, we need an EDGE rusher, so we're looking

under rocks."
Even at the end of the year, what are the chances he admits any of the moves he made were wrong? Not likely.

"I know what I'm doing! Yadda yadda yadda, Bahstan Baked Beans."
I hope he doesn't, and that's not a shot at him

The HC should be the one speaking for the team in season. GM's, ownership, and other front office types should stay behind the scenes.

Not sure I agree with that. The GM is responsible for roster construction. Right now, there isn't a pass rusher worth half a shit on this roster. Should the coaches be the only ones answering questions about that?
He is looking at film and available players to make us better.

If I was him. Guy is way too brash and cocky for the results we are seeing.

My personal belief is that, yes, the coac should be the one and only public voice of the team in season.

Fans may want to hear from the GM, but it's in the teams best interest to have one single voice.

You get in trouble whenthe front office and ownership speak publicly this time of year.

It can't make things better, but it can make them worse.
