Dave knows what a football player is. He knows how to evaluate talent. He has done a great job of assessing our talent and the talent around the league and helping to identify those players who fill our needs. He is more than qualified to be Carolina’s general manager. He is gifted and talented and has worked for years behind the scenes to make sure we are the best we can be.

— Tom Coughlin on Dave Gettleman, who was named GM of the Panthers this week
