So what if Sherrod ends up our starter and fills out that FS job well done.

When he first started we all thought he could be really good with a ton of potential maybe now after sitting on the bench he has learned a few things

There is no way in hell that Nakamura starts next week. No way in hell.


let's fuging hope not.

he shouldn't see the field at all, not even special teams. he's a liability in every sense of the word.

he should be released and never thought of ever again.

Think I saw a tweet talking about all the safeties getting reps, jones and Campbell as well. Well probably see Martin starting on Sunday

The true tragedy in all of this is that we are calling for Martin to start.

That sad truth showcases just how bad we are at the position.

I mean he struggled last season and still needs to improve on his tackling, but I never thought he shouldn't be the starter... considering his competition

Put it this way, if you toss the ball all the way up and he's there. He'll either pick it or bat it down

poo we could put a scarecrow back there, probably get the same results.

It might actually tackle better.

I think they were too quick to throw him in the doghouse. Yeah, he played like poo in 2011....but so did others.

I have always maintained his play in 2009 when Godfrey was hurt, that window of play was the last time we saw actual FS play in Carolina. He has the talent. Your FS doesn't need to be a stud tackler if you use him as a real FS......and LBs are letting everything get by them that shouldn't.

never understood why Godfrey to date still gets start after start.....and Martin was thrown to the bench. a contradiction there....

I don't have much faith Martin will do any better given how some games went last year. Still, changes definitely should be made. They brought in a replacement and it didn't work. Back to square one.

Well Martin is quick and athletic. His tackling was just atrocious though.

Perhaps he is better, or perhaps he will get better, we will find out shortly IMO.

All we can do is hope he is going to play well honestly.
I can't remember the last time this team used Safeties correctly, or drafted them correctly for that matter.

He meant too early in the week...not the season. That said, Martin will start! You can't give up a 60 yard pass from the goal line.
