Thanks for the info, I really appreciate it. After last season, I feel like the Panthers owe the fans a little something, so a little inside info couldn't hurt.
I completely agree on Marshall, he is overrated and wants too much money for what he is worth. He was a great nickel corner and is a great tackler, but his man coverage is suspect. Godfrey took a lot of heat for Marshall's blown coverages.
I also want to add how solid I think our secondary could be if we could add a good corner through free agency or next year's draft. If Munnerlyn and Hogan are 3 and 4, and we can add a stop-gap guy through free agency I will be very pleased.
Also I remember reading somewhere that Meek's cover-2 scheme utilized more zone than man for the corners and that Gamble didn't like that because he is a better man corner. Will McDermont/Rivera's defense be more man coverage or not?
Finally, I feel like I'm only asking questions about the secondary, but wtf happened with Gamble last year? Is it a future problem, or a dispute with Fox? I pray the latter
