Just good to see we finally have a legit 2..when Gam decides to hang up the cleats, Norm will take over seemlessly

Someone more experienced in analysis can check me on this, but don't rookie CB's tend to struggle often?

Is it just me, or has Norman played really well so far? Really excited for him and the attitude he brings.

Yes for the most part.

He's played exceptionally well so far. I think the kid is going to be special. He may end up being the biggest steal of the draft.

Captain is a great nickle and S/T player.

He gets burned at the nickel spot and on ST does his best Dante Wesley impression and plows into guys that call for a fair catch.

If you watch it, Captain is getting out of the way and the TB guy runs into him to draw the flag. Captain always does well on special teams

I would also like to discredit the myth that he is a good nickel corner. The guy is trash. He constantly gets abused even at the nickel and shouldn't be on the team after the season.

Oh HELL NO you didn't!

I think this is a contract year for him.

Good CBs usually start from day 1. You either have it or you don't. For a CB, other than terminology, learning a new system is not a culture shock. Obviously, young CBs will make mistakes. But Norman isn't going to learn anything on the bench.

The Saints converted their first 3rd down on Captain. He couldn't stay in front of Sproles, but to his credit, no one could yesterday.
