Although Gettleman is quite familiar working with Super Bowl teams, Polian said he's never been one to seek the spotlight.
"The Giants have been tremendously successful, but he's never one that beats his own drum," said Polian, who spent three seasons as Carolina's GM from 1995-97. "He's very good at what he does and he's been at it a long time. He is as well prepared for (a GM position) as anyone that has been hired in recent years."
