Josh Norman was pulled

He wasn't pulled because of his play, but I get that mentioning that wouldn't fit the narrative.


Frankly to pull him for being mouthy is a little silly provided it isnt being detrimental to the team.

 

I thought it was detrimental. I also thought his behavior was silly. It's one thing to mouth off to an opponent, but to take it as far as he did...in a preseason game is just stupid.

 

However, to talk to TD the way he did is just insane and a quick way to find himself on the outside looking in. I love his talent and fire, but he has to learn to control himself.

How can someone be good when all they have done is be horrible on Sunday

 

Norman can play well when he is not distracted by is own stupidity.

Say what you want, but the defensive backfield was looking a little lackadaisical (damn near suspect) before Norman came in.  Sure, Cason was lighting it up a little bit, but White was meh, and the safety play just wasn't cutting the mustard in my book. I remember yelling at the screen, "Damn, they need to do something...Put Norman in!"  Well when Norman was put in, the intensity of the backfield went up noticeably.  Of course when Davis reprimanded Norman and the kid didn't exactly act contrite---seemingly wasn't learning the lesson---I thought to myself, "This may be trouble." And so it was.  Norman needs to stay out of his own way.  As for these supposed bad plays on the field that some of you are suggesting, I didn't see them (not that I'm the best Xs and Os guy, but I am adept at analyzing the big picture).  

 

I will support Rivera and G-man, whatever they do in this situation, but there are consequences either way.  Perhaps there will be more compelling and competent replacements out there once final cuts start coming in. I don't know.  I just don't see them now.  But, Norman will be 27 years old this year.  It's past time to grow up.

He has never played well in real games. Ever.

Guys flying off the handle, losing their composure and getting dumb penalties was part of why we lost the playoff game against the Niners last year.

 

Rivera was boiling mad about that after the game, so I'm pretty sure that's not something he wants to see anyone doing this season.

 

To be fair though the 49ers were allowed to cheat pretty hard in that game. Im not a big fan of allowing one side to be physical and not the other.

White balled out last night. I thought DeCoud had a good game. The only suspect position was strong safety.

Yep. Lester looked out of position and lost quite a few times last year, and it looks like there were a few blown coverages up the middle.

White did his thing, but really only after KC's third or fourth offensive possession. He wan't perfect. Bowe pushed him around a few times (as well as trucked him), and Donnie Avery may have gotten him once. I think that White settled down, mainly in the second quarter.

No player is perfect. Even the gray Luke missed a tackle last night. Compared to Thomas, White is an all-star. He had great run support, took good angles, got trucked but forces the receiver, out of bounds, and I thought played great coverage the entire game.

I don't think they were 'allowed' per se.

I just think they were better at knowing how to get away with it.

Norman is still a good player i would give him one last chance, calm down or go away.
Good leadership by Davis!

And Norman must NOT play against Smitty.. Cason and White will do the job.


There ain't no way you can have a player on your team that you can't put on the field vs. opposing players because you're scared they couldn't handle it mentally or emotionally.

In other words, if Norman continues to convince the coaches of exactly that, that he can't handle the game mentally or emotionally, then he gone.
