Martin has made some nice tackles on ST.

I love Nakamura's heart and effort, but he will never be more than a special teamer in the NFL.

Martin has all the tools in the world, he was just prone to mental errors, which led to some coverage lapses. Sure he missed a tackle here and there, but he also had some really nice tackles and hits.

I fully expect Martin to come out with a fire and play lights out. I'm excited to see him on the field.

Anybody but nakamura, if a fight breaks out just send him in.

I also hope Rivera decides to leave Kuechly in for passing downs. How can he ever learn to be a great player, when you are taking away half his reps? For Munnerlyn no less. (I tell you, even though we have talented players, you can't overcome bad coaching)

Nakamura should have been been fired on the spot. Jerry should have literally walked on to the field and handed him a pink slip in post game. Martin, when in the right spot is the best coverage safety we have. He's sure handed and has won a few games for us. I agree he shouldnt have lost his job.

I never thought I'd see the day where we would even entertain the idea of Martin starting over....well....anyone.

The problem is we showed on Sunday that no matter how smart you are you can't cover an NFL receiver if you're slow and short.

I hope so, lesser of two evils... Nakamura is a total liability in coverage.

all I know is, Sherrod Martin would not have been beat that bad by Roddy White on that 65 yard pass. And if he did, then at least he has the hops to get off the ground more than 5 inches like Nakamura.

Same goes for the play when Nakamura gets turned around and Roddy scores a td... Sherrod in all fairness would get turned around too, but again- at least he has the athletic ability to get his ass back into position to make a play on the ball.

they both suck, but Sherrod sucks less.

Put Keek in the middle and I'll feel much better about the safety postion with Martin in. Beason needs to be the one playing sparingly til he's back to form. He's been missing lanes and tackles quite a bit this season and we are having to rely on our safties as a last resort for most of the game is always going to get us burned. Martin can also track the ball in the air..

Martin is talented, but a bonehead. Let's hope this benching has really forced him to work hard. At the minimum though, Sherrod knocks that ball down to Rodney White, if not picks it off

You know the safety position is sad when you're glad Sherrod Martin is starting. Thanks Hurney!
