If the Kickoff team could tackle, it wouldn't have been a TD. The coaching staff needs to start valuing points over kickoffs. Reports through out training camp said Medlock was kicking them into the endzone on every kick. Im pretty sure it was a fluke. Even if he has one bad KO every once in a while, I would be happy knowing that he can be reliable in tight games. The KO team should be able to tackle a returner. There's just no excuse for that.


I completely agree with the kickoff coverage needing to improve. They need to be prepared for a weak kick and fill their lanes. The short kickoff is also unacceptable, but I am glad to hear it was a fluke. His leg strength looks much stronger than Mare's, and even Mare is kicking them into the endzone. If Medlock continues the way he has been playing, he is going to make this team.

Rivera's talk today was longer than last weeks. Only a guess but I bet he didn't like all the sniping.

Sounds like a nice practice for Huddle hopes and dreams. Medlock looking a lot better than Mare. Norman maybe becoming the 2 and Captain moving to the Nickel.

Man I hope Norman can lock down the 2. Even if he's only average this year, his nose for the ball will drastically improve my confidence in he secondary and going up against a guy like Julio Jones.

To which Olsen replies: "Only your third day practicing. Fresh legs."


oh snap. burn.

but Olsen is probably right. All these guys are a day away fromleaving the hot hell hole known as Spartanburg....and Norman has been chillin

but good play is good play. nice to hear.

Great thread guys thx!



If Norman ends up balling out in the NFL, this will be the first practice where we saw evidence of it.

Way too early for that though!

Rivera said Norman had a good practice, but needs to work on pass interference. Also said team will evaluate him in live games.

Ron Rivera tempering the excitement on Norman a bit, saying he has to learn that you can't pull and grab receivers downfield.

well that puts a damper on things....Captain can pick guys off if allowed to commit pass interference.
