Blogger Blitz: Josh Norman

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.

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.

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.

You know this how?

Easy,

Just look at his size, athletic ability, and ball skills.

He has already impressed the coaching staff and other players.

This guy will be starting, might not be on day one but you can book it.

I was making a lot of jokes on draft weekend about picking up a 4-3 Will LB and drafting a guy out of D7 Boonfug State, but if Kuechly can start, Silatolu can start, Alexander can be rotational and play well, Norman can start, and Adams can (basically) start as a return man, this will be one of our better drafts ever.

you guys are joking about Gamble not tackling right? for a corner he jacks people up in the open field all the time. He is a very physical corner in general. Plays with his hands a lot, thats how its done.

Rumor is that the ball "explodes" off of nortman's foot.

Gamble has actually become a VERY good tackler. Early in his career he shied away from contact but the last 3-4 seasons he's been damn aggressive against the run and has laid the wood a few times.
