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.

Hopefully he'll get it together. I think he has the tools to be great. It's a learning process

If the play call is to give a 10 yard cushion, what should Norman do?

HE WAS BENCHED. Obvs for doing something wrong maybe the cushion was it.

That 10 yard cushion has been making me sick all year, maybe he was doing that on his own

idk about Norman, but Dockery was pretty solid. I noticed him one particular time get off of a good block and make a tackle.

If Norman was benched for giving up too much cushion, then RR should be fired right now. Today. How the fug do you bench a guy 13 games in, for doing the same thing he has all season? That would make the Bears game even more unacceptable.

Probably bc teams throw on Norman and pick up easy yards week after week.....

Meanwhile, Captain and Thomas don't allow it to the same degree. He has been the 3rd best overall CB of those 3
