No i didnt he had already gave up that huge TD probably before you made this thread but that was a great play on him to rip the ball out after he ALLOWED that catch.

Ummm pretty sure luke played better than norman last game. Get some game tape.

As a no.9 pick he plays like poo.

You're going to compare Norman to Claiborne who was drafted 4 rounds ahead of him. That's just stupid.

Go and look at lbs drafted after Luke (Wagner and David), theyre playing much better than him right now.

Norman is playing outstanding. I hate some people just want to hate on a guy because the receiver that he was assigned to caught a ball. He was playing zone where we gave up two gigantic plays. He disengaged to work the underneath on both. It was a poor play call since they assigned Nakamura to be the only safety over the top. The coaches don't really have other options since White and Jones deserve double coverage, Gonzo will own the middle, and the draw to Turner was lethal- keeping us respectable. The Falcons are deadly on offense. Back to the subject, Norman had an absolutely outstanding game! He won his battles almost every time against Jones. They didn't throw his way because he just wasn't getting open. No he isn't a burner by any means but you don't have to be when you have solid awareness. He also reads the receiver, not the ball. Go back and watch how he reads the body language of the receiver to make nice plays. I recall he had a couple swats and airtight coverage all game. Stop making these damn threads about good guys. Like the one about Keek, he is getting adjusted. He is still a ballhound- wait until he gets comfortable in coverage. You guys won't be calling his number in midseason. The same goes for Beason. Yea he looks sluggish, totally understandable after playing in pain + coming back after his injury. I believe we will start really gelling after our bye week, similar to last year. Our O-line needs time together, our d-line is making plays, we are learning to pressure, Cam is settling in... For some reason, we don't come out of the gate hot. Patience.. I think we will make a serious late run similar to last year except we will have 2-3 more wins before the run. Go Cats.

He's the 6th pick in the draft.

Norman is a 5th rounder.

You dont compare Munnerlyn to Revis. I don't see why you're trying to prove a case at comparing Norman to Claiborne.

A lot of the time that he's "following" is scheme related. He's looked pretty good in press coverage in crossing routes and anything under 15 yards. On go routes, or any deep route really, with our two deep nickle sets, he releases the top of the route to the safety and falls to underneath coverage - that's a scheme set up and not a coverage failure. Unfortunately Nakamura sucks balls.

As to your targeted yards point; he would likely be near the top. There's a few reasons for that. Very little rookie corners have started every game as a number two this year, and we've played three very prolific passing teams out of our four games.

Norman looks to be progressing fine in my eyes.

this we seemed to be in some sort of cover 2 and since he had no other threat underneth he stayed on the fly while the safety was supposed to be there over top.he helped out naka but was still unsuccessful,would really like him pressing as well as Gamble.

He's playing pretty solid for a rookie.

He got burned all game long. I watched the game on rewind a couple times today.

Hurney needs to invest in some quality proven DBs until he is ready to play, but he should not be starting in the NFL at this point.

Wow. A 5th rounder from Coastal Carolina is only playing like a slightly bellow average NFL CB. I just can't believe it.

Remember when Gamble was a rookie? He was constantly getting burned going for the big plays. Or even two years ago when half the huddle wanted his head? Who is very quietly having possibly the best year of any CB in the NFC btw. Even dating back to the last half of 2011 he has consistently shut down some of the best WR's in the league. QB's arent even throwing his way anymore. (Sorry for the tangent)

This kid is WAY ahead of his expected learning curve. The future looks good at CB if he continues to develop at this speed.

You compare starters to starters. And comparing him to morris is still on the lower end of the scale. When cam was a rookie they compared him to everyone in the league not just rookies. you don't get a pass because you were in the 5th round this is the nfl if your number is called its called. your a starter.
