When people suggest things like this you have to wonder what reality they live in.

I think Josh Thomas shows more promise than Norman.

Also gotta keep Frank.

DT and DB. It's been the same song for the past 2+ years.

You can be weak in one or the other but not both.

I dont think we can afford to let Gamble go or at least its up in the air. Thomas has been lights out on coverage since he started, imagine him with gamble on the other side. Norman has been good but it seems like teams take advantage of his lack of quickness even tho we are always in that stupid off coverage he seems to be the only one they go after. He might be a better safety in the NFL i dont know.

Only if it was possible.
Maybe we should just dump the whole coaching staffs

CJ, Johnson, Keuchly, and Gamble are the only starters i fully expect to see back here next year.


I'd be stunned if Gamble is back next year. He's paid way too much and is coming off of a season ending injury.

Only way he is back is if he agrees to restructure and I doubt he's willing.

Not to mention, he literally has no edge or fight to him. When the going get's tough, Gamble lays down.

Make no mistake about it also, Gamble's improved play isn't a product of him upping his game as much as it is that we have the shortest nfl corner ever and a 5th round rookie who ran a 4.7 40 yard dash on the other side of him. Gamble would be exposed with an adequate corner on the other side.

losing Edwards is killing us.

unless we can get one of our DT's to "drop anchor" in the middle of the line.........

you can stick a fork in out run-D.

We're fine on defense aside from FS, OLB, and DTs.

Need another starting caliber CB to pair with Gamble.

Norman's alright. I see him being our scapegoat in a few seasons. But he can stay until then. But mark my words in a few seasons this guy will get toasted like the Eric Wright's and Sheldon Brown's of the league.... I do like that he's physical. Hard to find a corner that likes to tackle. I'll miss Gamble too if he's gone.

Anderson needs to be back. Huge oversight. Heart and soul of our team.

He's a very big reason Quinn looked like Cyborg Montana out there today. All he does is play way off then make the tackle. To his credit, he's a good tackler. I just haven't seen much to buy into his actual coverage skills.

As much as people hate position switch talk, I think Norman would be a badass free safety. Good size, decent speed, long arms, good tackler and could keep everything in front of him.

I definitely dont like his coverage skills. Just hope he becomes a Corey Webster... I mean that guy went from a guy who couldn't cover poo into a pretty decent corner bc he's been taught, been physical, and has size.

Seriously?

He is extremely over-paid and essentially useless now that we have Keuchly. He got paid due to being the only competent tackler in the absence of TD and Beason. Now that we have a guy in Keuchly that can play all over the field, Anderson does very little.

This is the type of mentality that has gotten this team in the shape it is in now. Latching on to the glories of the past instead of realizing the current state of the player. Guys like Gamble, Anderson and Gross are not the future of this team. it is time to move on from these guys and bring in guys that can play and contribute to wins (not guys who are "cornerstones" of a team that has won 11 of thier last 44 games)

Always let a guy keep his wallet.
