Gamble, who became the Panthers' all-time interception leader in 2011 with an impressive bounce-back season, believes the defense will bounce back collectively in 2012 after ranking in the bottom 10 of the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns allowed.


He's played in 119 games over his eight NFL seasons, more than the six other corners on the 90-man roster combined. While the other six have 11 interceptions between them, Gamble has 27, surpassing the previous franchise record of 25 by Eric Davis with three last season.

Gamble didn't have any interceptions in 2010, the only time that's happened in his career. The new coaching staff, however, put immense faith in Gamble last season by consistently putting him on the opponent's top receiver. He responded by holding the likes of Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson in check.


"Josh has a lot of learning to do, and I'm going to be there to help him and keep him on his feet," Gamble said. "He's always around the ball. He's tall, kind of like me, and I can see some physicality in him. He's an athlete."

"Brandon is doing well out there technique-wise. He's making plays, just doing his thing. Everybody is doing well in the secondary."

I'm getting giddy for the D. Somehow I think they'll be fine after all. I just hope they don't buy too much into these pundits saying " The panthers will win the division" and become complacent and relaxed.


They need to be on edge and have a chip on their shoulders. Time to decimate the opposition.

said it a lot before..i fully expect the defense to rebound the way the offense did last year.

i am 100% in agreement with gamble. glad to see he's stepping up the way he is and that the secondary is shaping up the way it is.

Gamble might earn himself a jersey spot in the closet.

Ford also said they have good trucks, IBM thinks highly of their computers and Facebook thinks everyone will enjoy Instagram.

Take all this stuff with a grain of salt.

Injuries will be the only thing that will keep this from being a top 10 Defense. Somebody had to say it... It's true

Please elaborate... By the way, it's kind of funny that you have quoted me in the last 10 quotes on my profile...

Obviously you have a hard on for me or intentionally search for my posts.

Please go ahead... I'll be waiting for your 11 quote in a row... Talk about good grief

I'm so glad Gamble isn't expecting a defensive decline - now THAT would be thread-worthy discussion.

We will have a top 10 defense with a top 5 offense. Superbowl baby.
