I liked how he caught that pass that was thrown behind him and kept truckin'. I felt the same way a lot of you guys do last season but the guy has good hands and deceptive speed. Norwood looked good today. I like the catches, the energy, the blocks. Funchise looks very good. He reminds me of a taller Moose. I'm not worried about receivers anymore.
Can't blame the coaching staff on their trying to harness the potential they see. When he held on to the ball as a returner he had some electric runs. He bulked up a little in the offseason which is good. The guy has talent but he has to learn not to shy away from defenders. Catch the ball and turn into the aggressor like Moose and Smitty did. Walter Payton would make defenders pay for even trying to tackle him. The difference between a #1,2 or 3 WR or any offensive player is that aggressor attitude. It doesn't matter if you're 5'9" if you attack DBs after the catch you become 1st team material. If you shy away from contact you'll never be a great football player. Be the hammer Philly. UDFAs only get so many chances so you can't hold back. 1st catch the ball, 2nd run angry!
Not convinced ownership wants to win a SuperBowl. He chose to make a point and most of his audience approved at the time. It became personal and not business. There is no doubt Hardy would have helped this year. King of chicken and PR maybe, but not building teams for SuperBowl runs. Just happy to have a team here in good ol' Charlotte, that's all we deserve :-/
