    In Gettleman we trust

    The Carolina Panthers used a 5th round draft pick to select Josh Norman in the 2012 NFL draft and coached him up to be an all pro corner in the defensive system of Coach Ron Rivera. The Panthers run a defensive system that uses a deep and heavy rotation of defensive tackles up front with ends who get after it and a corps of linebackers that play fast and hit hard.

    As a result cornerbacks aren't as valued here as in some other systems. When they lost two corners to injury late last year they just plugged unwanted free agents including one guy who had already retired to play behind all of that beef and they looked good protected behind those big tackles.

    The Panthers offered Josh long term deals this off season and last and used the unrestricted franchise tag to lock him in for the coming year guaranteeing him $13.8 million but Josh Norman decides that he is as good as Darrelle Revis aka Revis Island and wants to be paid that way.

    Well, Josh doesn't want to sign so Gettleman shocks everyone around the league by rescinding that tag making Josh a free agent immediately. Josh is free to seek stupid money elsewhere and will probably find out how it is to play in a corner based system without that mountain of hog mollies up front to protect him not to mention the all pro linebackers that handle the underneath coverage on tight ends and speedy backs.

    The Panthers lost two players to free agency this year, a punter and an injury plauged back up offensive lineman who wasn't that good. The Panthers signed two free agents from other teams getting younger and heavier on the offensive and defensive lines. If Josh Norman signs elsewhere that will make three lost free agents making the Panthers eligible to receive a compensatory draft pick next year and if he signs for the money that some including Josh and his agent expect that pick could be as high as a 3rd rounder making Dave Gettleman look like a genius.

    Go Panthers, Keep Pounding!

      When Dave Gettleman was hired as the General Manager of the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers were in salary cap hell and without changes they wouldn't be able to sign many of their own key free agents going forward.

      Some of Gettlemans greatest hits include releasing the teams all time leading receiver, Steve Smith and allowing the entire receiving corps to walk away in free agency. Prognosticators predicted gloom and doom but he cobbled together a group of free agents and rookies to compliment pro bowl tight end Greg Olson and the panthers went on to win the NFC South and a play off game in the 2014 season.

      In 2015 Gettleman released the teams all time leading rusher for cap reasons. The team went on to win the NFC South again and went to the Super Bowl.

      This off season Gettlemn released the teams veteran strong side defensive end, Charles Johnson who was on the last year of his contract and didn't want to agree to the new cap friendly deal he was offered. He was released and explored free agency briefly before resigned for a third of his previous contract amount.

      I don't bet against Dave Gettleman.

        The Redskins went and did it. They made Josh Norman the highest paid corner back in football with a 5 year, $75 million contract that includes $50 million in guarantees.

            The Panthers could almost use scarecrows for corners with their system. They use a deep front seven that stops the run and gets to the quarterback without blitzing often and fast linebackers that cover the underneath routes.
