Interesting piece on the guy we love to hate

Excellent article

Thank you for sharing. Gettleman does have that educator thing about him. Great to hear those students never forgot him. Teaching has an impact that people wouldn't believe.
Thanks

Very nice read, thanks for posting this.
He used to be part of running a football camp in the 80s

that I attended twice. One of the other local coaches was the leader, the bad cop, DG was the good cop. He was nutty.

I hope Mr. Sentimental...

John Mara doesn't read this.

Because he'll rollover with his box of kleenex and actually extend Resume's contract...

there it is. Putting a negative slant and foisting a hypothetical that doesn't even pertain to the article.
Is there no better analogy for his tenure  
V.I.G. : 12/9/2019 12:27 pm : link
than going off road and crashing mailboxes under his watch
I bet they were all defensive lineman

Praising him.

None were DB’s or WR’s.
The usual suspects are already showing up to shit all over this

thread and derail it, but that was a great article.

Nice to see the impact and positive influence he's had as an educator.
Didn't read it.

Won't read it. Don't care. I wish him nothing but good health and after the Giants a wonderful life. But right now I could care less about him away from his current job.

As GM of the Giants he is a complete and total failure. Even things "fans" count as his "wins" were awful strategic choices.

Until he is removed the Giants will stay at the bottom of the NFL and letting him run another draft and spend more free agent money is going to enter Knicks black hole multiple more years of misery territory.

I guess I’m a usual suspect. Forgive me if a feel good background story doesn’t make me feel good right now.

Puff pieces are for winners.

It wasn't written to make you feel good.

Its no ones fault but your own that you haven't learned to compartmentalize your emotions.
Great article. Not surprised by any of it.

Seems like a great man.

He eventually “retires” or is canned, at least Mr G knows he can fall back on being a driver’s ed teacher in Poughkeepsie

I think I remember Mr. G saying he was responsible for building the best teaching staff in Poughkeepsie...
is this a plant to try to make him likeable

I'm sure this is going to sound cynical, but I don't think it's a coincidence that this article landed when it did, especially considering that the media appears to have been given the go ahead to start laying the tire tracks onto the the bloodied remains of Pat Shurmur's head coaching career.

It's pretty clear, IMO, that Shurmur is out and Gettleman will stay, and Mara has now fired back at Tisch in his own way, by attempting to steer public sentiment toward the outcome that he's going to push for at the end of the season.
Nice Article  
Manning10 : 12/9/2019 3:49 pm : link
I hope he stays and finishes the Plan. I'm all in for this guy,while that's not very popular among a lot of people here
This team couldn't be fixed in just two years.
The real problems are Shurmur, Bettcher and the rest of the staff who need to go.

You're right that it couldn't be fixed in two years. That said, it took a true mastermind to find a way to make the entire operation worse than it was under Reese. Resume Dave knows how to leave his mark on a team.

Agree about DG but not so sure about Shurmur as the defense is horrible and not improving. It might be a much better team without Bettcher.
"The Plan"  
Go Terps : 12/9/2019 5:24 pm : link
I guess the "The Plan" was to take a team picking #2 overall and get them to #1. Hopefully the Bengals comply. If not there's always next year with Trevor Lawrence.

GM in Giants history.

If he doesn't go, nothing else matters because the organization will continue its nose dive.
