There was one nickleback song that I thought I liked but then I found out it was actually by theory of a deadman


Hmm I thought it was poo but found out it was actually barf-poo.

Or

I thought it was Candlebox but then found out it was actually Creed.

Or

I thought it was Keisha but found out it was actually Flo-Rider

He played up at the line of scrimmage most of the game especially when playing zone. I'm not sure what you mean. The coverage called dictates how close he lines up.

Yeah isnt that more of a schematic decision by the coach than an actual indication of his ability?

Yeah I actually think he prefers to play up close. It's Gamble who likes playing back so much.

got to agree with james dator on an inferior site...

Sean McDermott decided to quickly usher in the Josh Norman era with the 2012 fifth round pick now starting across from Chris Gamble. This gives the Panthers size at their CB spots they've lacked for years, and if there's one thing we've learned from the Rivera-led Panthers it's that they crave size. The fallout from the move was Captain Munnerlyn, who was bumped from the starting role, moving to a roving role where on occasion he plays on the outside, but more often it's in the nickel role where he's seeing reps. This change has yeilded immediate results for Carolina, as Munnerlyn is better suited in a role where he can attack receviers, and deliver heavy hits without needing to hang on a receiver's hips deep downfield.

It's easier for fans to see the whole picture, but there is a degree of Captain losing he forest for the trees in this scenario. He's in his contract year, and needs to make an impact with as much visability as possible, but in the role he's currently playing he could be set up for a decade-plus career with the Panthers by staying in his lane, and making the big plays he has been thus far.

NFL players want as many reps as possible, but this notion of 'starting corner' vs. Nickel corner will dissolve more and more as teams utilize more receivers. Munnerlyn may be small in stature, but he always plays bigger than he is, and has no problem delivering hits to larger ball carriers. The allure of being 1st on the depth chart is there, but right now he is in a position to succeed, and that's something all NFL players should cherish.

i really agree with that part i bolded. teams are increasingly using more 3+ receiver sets and the nickel back is going to be seeing a whole lot more time on the field. he's now in a role that suits him better and benefits the team more. if he can suck it up and embrace that role we should be set for a while at CB. if we can get an upgrade at FS i think we'll be more than fine in that back 7.

I used to like one nb song when I was 11, if that tells you anything.
