Norman was being picked on. He's still lost in zone coverage, but played great in press.

Maybe he was the Flesh Bomb?

I was pretty impressed with Dockery at CB, Jones at FS and Campbell at SS.

Norman is good, but he does give up too much space. Hopefully this will help him out.

rotoworld says it's performance related...

Panthers rookie RCB Josh Norman was benched for performance in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Falcons.

Coach Ron Rivera explained afterwards that he "wanted to look at other players," although it's no secret that Norman has struggled all year in pass coverage. And despite being picked on routinely, Norman has failed to capitalize with big plays. He has one interception and no forced fumbles on the season.

Dockery was actually very good. Josh thomas was solid, Captain is cap. D.J. impressed me the most, tackling Gonzo in the open field like that and getting him out of bounds is not easy. Gonzo knows how to make you miss.

on the line? that's not his call.

you can lead a horse to water........maybe that's why he was bench. Josh Thomas doesn't give ten yards.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
