For those of you wanting to cut Josh Norman...

Recommended Posts

He's not very good.

Luckily for him "not very good" on the Panthers means one of our better defensive players and a solid piece for the future.

Easy to rack up tackles when you play ten yards of the receiver and have to make the tackle after he just caught another one on you. In zone coverage Norman disappears

You don't read stats at all, like at all.

What stats? I'm at the damn games I see that the guy can't cover. You know what I won't say anything else about it. If he's a starter next year you come find me and I'll admit I was wrong.

Like I said I'd be surprised if he is a starter here next year. If he is I will personally buy you a Josh Norman jersey and stand in line at training camp for him to sign it. Deal?

Never said he wouldn't be on the team. Said he wouldn't be a starter. They guy on the other side is outplaying him. Plus gamble comes back. With a new gm everyone will be evaluated.

Josh Norman has the chip on his shoulder needed to be successful, he is young and played with poo competition in college so it will take some time to get used to the speed and gimmicks of the NFL.
