Pat Yas discusses Josh Normans performance so far. Says he's getting a lot of attention from the vets and they are very excited for him.

This would boost the defense and it would allow Captain Munnerlyn to move to the inside according to Pat.


Good news to hear. I hope he learns and soaks everything up to be ready to go by week one and be the #2 Corner.

Good to hear, thanks for the link. I have high hopes for both Norman and Hogan but now I am beginning to wonder whether or not Hogan's injury is giving him problems. Haven't heard his name mentioned much this off-season which is a bit of a concern considering he was graded by many as a second round talent.

Norman is hands down our 2nd best corner (all things considered)

I just hope he learns enough for the coaching staff to put im out there on week 1.

We're all pulling for Norman but for u to call him our second best corner right now is absurd.

a huge part of playing CB is jamming receivers on the line and playing the run. both of these things involve contact, which is forbidden in minicamp by the new CBA. we have reason to be excited for sure but going overboard before training camp isn't very prudent.

Gamble isn't exactly exceptional at tackling or hitting. He contains pretty well. His man to man coverage skills are rediculous. We need another cover corner, whether they play every down or not, to deal with guys like julio jones, mike williams (gamble gets vjax), and anyone drew brees wants to throw to.

Nah, can't be true. Mrtouchdown has a cousin who knows this friend and his friend's cousin says Norman is a thug and a "very selfish player".

i really hope that between him, hogan, butler, and even the capt our secondary is the best it's ever been and that gamble has lots of help on the rest of the field.

i'm really excited about this crop of CBs, esp. with wilks coaching them. it should be muuuuch better than we've been used to for years.

It has to be between Hogan, Butler and Mr Norman. There's no one else. I love Cap to death, but he's just a very formidable Nickleback. That's where he shines.

Norman has the skills you can't teach, Height and instinct. Hogan has that too. He also has more experience. I'm rooting for Norman but ultimately I believe hogan will win this battle in the end.

yeah, i've got no idea who wins it. i don't really care nor do i have a favorite. i just believe we'll have a much improved secondary and that the job will get done.

Exactly. I would feel more comfortable with Norman covering Mike Williams, Julio Jones and Devery Henderson/Lance Moore twice a year than Munnerlyn or Hogan, based simply on his height. I just hope he has the mental and technical skills to go along with his physical gifts.

Edit: Or mother-fuging Nick Toon if he somehow wins the #2 WR spot. I wouldn't want Captain on him.
