It's funny how high I was on him on the day we drafted him and people were saying that he wouldn't even compete this year for a starting job.

We actually have a pretty good defense with some good young personnel. If only our coaches weren't idiots.

I have a spot for you on my Normanwagon Zod.

Been down since day one! Yesterday was his best game yet against a "premiere" WR.

That being said, can't wait to get a coach in here that knows how to accentuate his skillset with a legit scheme and players around him in the back 4 that can execute it (not a shot at Gamble, b/c I've been pro-Gamble as well, although I do think he may be on his way out).

Hopefully he will show some improvement to match his poo talking. With a new GM and likely new coaching staff coming in it's not guaranteed he will continue in his current role.

He's been pretty much awful.

Norman has been far from "pretty much awful"...

What are you talking about?

Yes he has. I'm not one to judge a player in relation to where they were taken in the draft. Once they take the field they are the same and he does not compare well with his peers.

I want him to succeed, I want him to be great, I don't want the team to have to worry about that position. So far, he has played like a 5th round pick from a small school.

I will continue to hope he can grow into it, but that does not mean it will happen.

Agree with everything Zod said. The way he went after the ball on the interception yesterday was a thing of beauty. Can we get Norman mic'd up or what?

speaking of CB...

what is going on with Brandon Hogan?

Norman can be as good as he wants to be in the right system. I'm hoping for the best for him and the Panthers.

Norman, Alexander, and Kuechly. Hurney's last draft may have given us 3 great cornerstone pieces to rebuilding our defense.

Hopefully he can get a little thicker with some weight room work. He looks skinny as hell out there.

Him and Kuechly and Frank Alexander were great picks and three of the few bright spots for the team this year.

The times he's looked worst are the times when Rivera is clearly calling for him to play off the ball in a cover 4 or something. The end of the Falcons game, the end of the Chicago game and against the Giants. The Miles Austin TD was a great throw against good coverage.

When he's been allowed to move up on receivers I think he's done a good job. Brandon Marshall had like 50 yards until the last drive. He also played well against Julio Jones. I also like his willingness against the run. Not similar Gamble at all.

We have a young player emerging at every level of defense. If we can add another playmaker at DT and FS/CB they could make it into the top 10 with the right coaching.

we have CBs that absolutely should not be playing in a soft zone, that should be playing tight coverage, and what do we do when the games on the line? play a soft zone.

morons.
