Safety Martin also known for missed tackles, and faces contenders at his position

Carolina Panthers free safety Sherrod Martin lost his dreadlocks this offseason in his first haircut since high school eight years ago.

“Probably only people from my hometown have seen me with a low cut,” said Martin, who is from Griffin, Ga. “Some guys were shocked I did it. I got a few compliments. I ain’t never been a bad-looking guy, so …”

Martin looked bad a few times last season when he missed crucial tackles as the Panthers’ last line of defense. Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Martin’s whiffs were obvious to fans because they occurred in the open field.

He played like crap but it's a new year. He has absolutely no room for error though. If he doesn't look like a changed man then he should be on the bench. The new secondary coach will help. We'll know early if Martin will start for 2012.

And Charles Godfrey still flies under the radar with his craptastic play

Adds a lot of quickness. Much more aerodynamic.

This is going to be an interesting competition battle because I think that stat wise, these guys are fairly comprable.
Comb Tot Ast Sck PDef Int TDs Yrds FF
Martin 68 50 18 0 11 3 0 16 0
Goldshon 65 55 12 0 15 6 0 53 1 (49'ers Starter: more Int's + yrds)
Ed Reed 52 44 8 1 8 3 0 25 1
Nakamura 5 12 10 2 2 0 0 0 0 (15 gms, no starts)

But these are just stats, I've seen Martin on the field and he whiffs on key plays. We'll see....

If you have ever watched Godfrey play you would know its not craptastic. He has trouble covering NOs TEs but many have. Dude had some great coverage last year and does not miss many tackles. Prob why no one is saying he sucks besides you.

Wasn't it Martin that got burned by Colston right before the half? Yeah, after that play he was dead to me.

Martins biggest problem was he was out of position a whole LOT! His second problem was he didn't tackle very well. Still believe it or not Jordan Pugh found a way to be way worse. If you want to write a handbook about how not to play Safety in the NFL watch him.

Godfrey was the 79th rated S in 2011 per PFF.

Godfrey had more missed tackles than Martin.

PFF says he sucked overall worse than Martin last year and has been one of the worst tacklers at S since he arrived in the league.
