Getting first team reps though Rivera wont say either way if he will start. Thoughts? Lesser of two evils?

NEVER thought I would be somewhat happy to hear this. I still don't think I am, but we need a change and maybe he will feel more motivated to earn this spot.

After seeing both of them play, Martin is a better FS. Unfortunatly, that is not saying much.

If being benched for someone with inferior talent does not get him motivated to get better(i.e putting extra work in), he should not be around next season.

While we're at it let's put Godfrey back at FS and try out DJ Campbell at SS

Might as well try out all possibilities

I don't know why all the hate on Martin, the guy is a play maker, he may not be very consistent but he can makes plays, hell hes probably won us a game or two... we've also seen him lay the hammer on some people before although he might not be in the same league as chris harris, hes still pretty good.

As awful as Martin is, he still has a lot of potential. He has the physical tools to play the position, but he's bad at the game mentally. Haruki Nakamura being a perennial back-up to Ed Reed shouldn't have instantly given him the benefit of the doubt. I'm not convinced that the Ravens would have had confidence in him if Ed Reed were to go down. He is the most unathletic safety I've seen in a Panthers uniform since Minter in his final season. The sad part is that he's not the SS, but the FS. He doesn't have the physicality to play the position and he sure as hell doesn't have the smarts to play the position. If Martin comes back and crashes and burns, I'll be at least happy that we're sticking with a player that has a ceiling above him. Haruki has no where to go but down. I never want to see him on the field again. As glad as I was when Martin was replaced, I don't remember thinking that about him. Haruki makes Martin look like Jesus with dreads.

are there any free agents on the market worth a fug that would be a decent upgrade to the secondary? obviously we need some improvement...not sure putting in martin is going to magically solve that.

Yea which I was going to add, but I count that a part of overall tackling

I don't know if it's angles or he's just afraid to hit
