Gamble has been quietly doing pretty well in coverage for a while (except for that year where he just forgot to give a poo near the end). But like any stat there's context here that needs to be kept in mind. Gamble is our best corner but the rabble across from him has been so bad that teams just haven't needed to throw at him.

So yes he is better than we give him credit for, by a large margin, but he's also not as good as that stat indicates. IMO at least.

Bottom Line: Panthers failed to address another critical need / free agency CB / miss opportunity yet again for elusive winning season. (Instead spend limited funds like drunken sailors on RBs that are seldom used.)

Gamble's numbers also get a bump bc it isn't that they are scared to throw at him....it is just so tempting to throw at others

I think Norman is still learning and this will just help him. And he hasnt been to bad to me. Hasnt given up a touchdown yet.

he's a top 15 corner for sure.

don't care about who is opposite him. he's been lights out since last season started.

And last year it was because Captain munnerlyn was across from him. How many years any row am i gonna have to here that its becuz whoever is playin on the other side from him is that bad? Gamble is just that good to me.

I'd like to see that stat stacked up against his yards allowed on balls thrown his direction. That would paint a more complete picture IMO.

As everyone has mentioned, the opposite corners are a big reason QBs look elsewhere to throw.

If we had better corners then Gamble would see more action and get beat more but he'd also get more chances to make interceptions.

Gamble is definitely a great piece to have for this defense.

i don't think anybody is arguing that gamble is a bad corner. i'm certainly not and i'm the first to throw that PFF article from last year showing how badly quarterbacks fared when throwing at gamble in the face of opposing fans who step out of line.

he shuts down his side of the field, no question. people who actually follow the NFL know that he's the best kept secret around. it sucks that there's kind of a drop off from there but norman has the right attitude and he's growing fast.
