The only thing I can agree is that Gamble may be playing better than previous years. As to say he is worthy of being a number 1 corner and pro-bowl bound, not really! Who has been brought in to really challenge or shall I say been someone we can compare to as being an exceptional corner during his tenure here. Ken Lucas? I would only rate him as being an average corner in the league, nothing great. Captain has had more than his fair share of getting burned in coverage this year alone. In my opinion Captain is a younger Ricky Manning Jr., more of a nickel back. In no way can I see him being worth the same money as Asante Samual! I know we have greater needs to fix but if there is a great corner up for grabs next year we shouldn't hesitate. My apology to all the Gamble fanatics, I just don't see him being considered one of the top corners around.

Do you always talk out of your ass, or better yet do even watch the games?

At first glance, there's nothing impressive about the statistics - Gamble has only recorded 16 tackles, two interceptions and three pass defenses - but the story is how little the opposition is throwing his way.


The Panthers corner has only been thrown at 30 times this season, the sixth lowest total in the league among cornerbacks who have played at least 50 percent of their team's defensive snaps. Even more impressive, Gamble has only allowed 11 receptions. That 36.7 percent rate is the third best in the NFL behind only Pittsburgh's Ike Taylor and New York Jets' Darrelle Revis.

if only he had been allowed to shadow fitz in that playoff game maybe we wouldn't have gotten spanked so bad. sure, we'd still have jake's 6 turnovers to groan about, but we wouldn't have had fitz go off on us for 120 yards in the first half or whatever it was.


God this game to me hurts more than any game besides the SB. Maybe I feel that way because I was there, uptown. That stadium went from being Psycho loud when Dwill ran it in for a TD on the third or second play or whatever to being the most depressed atmosphere I have ever seen. It was more than a Delhomme meltdown it was a BOA/Charlotte meltdown. I remember just hanging around the stadium afterwords with the other 3 guys that were left in the stadium, just feeling shocked. stoner rant over

Gamble still has a couple more years left in him. Just think how the respect he gets will help better the defense for the future kinda like what Revis does with the Jets. He allows them to do a lot of exotic things with there defensive gameplan well at least back when there defense was still playing really good. We just gotta add some more pieces to it and this defense its not that far away from being elite.

As a team we have the 3rd lowest # of passes against us, skewing his numbers. Why pass against us when anyone can run all over us?

Gamble has always been a good corner regardless, that's why he's one of the best and Munnerlyn is one of the league's worst.

I view Gamble this year in the same light as asomugha on the raiders. He is playing beside some of the worst defenders in the game and rarely is asked to do anything but run bedside his guy.

not sure if you have been paying attention, but people have been more pointing out that WRs he's been facing have a very low success rate when they are thrown to.
