Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn is usually a happy-go-lucky guy. But the fourth-year player is not pleased about losing his starting job to rookie Josh Norman.
Munnerlyn, who has 23 career starts, has been relegated mostly to the nickel package and special teams with the emergence of Norman, a fifth-round pick from Coastal Carolina.
“It’s hard to say I’m good with it. But it’s a part of football,” Munnerlyn said Monday. “I know they need me on special teams. We don’t have a gunner that can run down the field and go out there and make a lot of plays. I’m rotating at corner, which I really don’t like. But I’ve got to do it.”

Ok he may not like losing that spot but there is a simple way to get it back. Do better when he gets his chance.

Sounds like he's disgruntled and he's not even that good at nickel. Might be time to move on after the season.

The thing that stuck out to me was "We don't have a gunner that can run down the field and go out there and make a lot of plays." First of all, you don't tell the media something like that. That's being selfish and not a team player. And second, we do. Colin Jones comes to mind.

He better tread carefully with his words. I appreciate the attitude that he is not content with not starting, but you keep that internal and bust your a** to retake your job. You don't go public with that type of thing and turn this issue into something that festers in the lockerroom.

He is a guy that would be easy to replace.

I like Captain, but he's the one who has to improve. I don't know about saying all of that to the media.

Game ball: Wideout Steve Smith gave a game ball to linebacker Kenny Onatolu, who missed practice last week and was inactive for the Saints game after the death of his mother. Onatolu said he was overwhelmed by the support of his new team.

Besides Smith’s gesture, the Panthers sent flowers and defensive coaches texted Onatolu throughout the week.

“I didn’t expect all that,” said Onatolu, signed as a free agent during the offseason. “I’m not a star player. I’m one of those special teams guys, and they showed me a lot of love.”


Where's that ass clown that was saying he doesn't think our team is likable? This is one of the classiest teams in the league.

i'm glad he doesn't like it. he needs to prove it on the field and that just isn't something he's done.

he's good in the nickel and to an extent he should relish that role, but if he wants more playtime and more respect he's just going to have to play better.

It's not like he called a press conference to complain. They asked him what he thought of the situation and he said he was upset, which shouldn't be much of a surprise. He didn't say he lost faith in the staff or even that they made the wrong decision. The man wants to be the starter, and he's made it clear on several occasions before. I don't see why this would negatively impact anything considering the players in the locker room already figured he wouldn't be okay with losing his job. Feel free to blow this out of proportion though, Huddle.

Easy, easy, easy Captain. You'll be hanging out with McClain if you can't keep your cool.
