Too much cushion. I get sick of seeing it too.

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

Josh Norman on benching: "Really no comment on the issue. It's just something we're going through and I'll leave it at that for right now."

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.

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