I had no clue who this dude was when we drafted him and I paid him little attention, and I will admit that I know little of what he did last week. However, watching the game this week I can say I am a fan. He has made a few plays, and that is great, but that isn't even the best part. I like the fire he plays with. After he makes a play he sometimes reminds me of smitty. He plays with a passion that we could use in our secondary. We have some players back there, bu havnt had a passionate player back there in a while, and one that passionate showing promise as a rookie, I'm a bit excited.

I know I could be talking out my ass, but this is how I see it.

He's so mean and aggressive something we need.

He's like Richard Marshall, but can cover.

I've been impressed, but man that blown coverage really changed this game. Our D was in control, now we are passive and in react mode.

I read an article on him at the Panthers NFL website.... he said b4 the draft he had set goals for himself, wanted to be a starter his 1st season. The kid has his head screwed on tight and looks to be the kind of corner the Panthers sorely need.... one with a chip on his shoulder.

Blown coverage? He slipped, as a rookie, in a game it has been raining the entire game. I have seen a dozen slips before his mistake, I will not blame him for that. It sucks yes, but a slip on a cut is a slip on a cut.

You want to see something called blown coverage, watch smittys 56 yard reception that just happened. That was blown coverage, Josh normans slip was just a rookie mintake on a blown call. The plays he has made on the goal line by far cover that.

Slipping is bad. When you slip, you blow your coverage. I don't understand the purpose of your post- I simply made an accurate observation. I didn't attack him. I even said I have been impressed with him.

I guess I have a different definition of a blown coverage. He was on him like white on rice untill he sliped. It isn't like he completely blew the coverage and made the wrong read. You sound like a douche and I am drunk, so say what you will, I still like Norman like a mofo

Norman played great! Locked up Colston the entire game. Outside of the slip is was darn near perfect game for him!

people saying things they dont even know what they mean. he played pretty good coverage on a tough C route to cover before he slipped.

How did he end up in the backfield on that run play? It looked like he came right up the middle.

I wouldn't exactly call it blown coverage. He slipped/tripped to the ground which left Colston open. Up to that point, Colston had only 1 catch.
