The Carolina Panthers new general manager says if he does his job right, the team will win a Super Bowl. Those were among Dave Gettleman’s comments at his introductory press conference Tuesday at the Panther’s stadium. 

Panthers’ owner Jerry Richardson laid it out simply for his newest hire:

"One of the things a general manager has to do, is he has to be able to fix things," Richardson said.

Dave Gettleman has a lot to fix. He’s taking over a team that hasn’t made the playoffs in four years and hasn’t won a playoff game since 2006.
