well Im not much of the re-watching games type dude, but over the past 3 or 4 days I did re-watch most of the second half of the season and this is what I have to say:

-Josh Thomas could very well be the Panthers #1 cb next year and I believe he deserves it. This guy is the real deal, but being so new to the team and name recognition hindering his opinion on many, he doesn't get brought up enough...

He will be a standout player for this team next year.

-Captain Munneryln is player any team would want on their side. Not saying he is a starter, but he plays with so much heart and energy it would be tough not bringing him back for the #3.

-Dockery played well, but is a better 4th option moving forward.

-The only question is whether Josh Norman can use this off season to improve leaps and bounds and show he is capable of a #2, (since Gamble is likely gone bc of $), I think he has the mental approach to the game that we want, but it's one of those things that will show itself at training camp.

...I know many of yall want a corner in the first 2 picks of the draft, but my honest opinion is OG/Safety/WR/DT are the wiser options

What do yall think?

You must have watched a different Munnerlyn than I did. I saw him get bitched at by either Rivera or Thomas Davis just about every game for missing an assignment and hes also not far removed from being the league leader in allowing completion percentage...

Good effort isn't enough. We need players now. New direction

In my opinion, Munnerlyn is too much of a risk to continue paying. It seems that almost every game there is some bone headed play that makes me want to get rid of him. In today's game, CBs are a very important part of a defense and we really need to upgrade our secondary, especially if Gamble leaves. Know what will make our DEs go from 10-12 sacks to 15+sacks? A better secondary.

This is basically it. There will be better options than Captain moving forward.

Munnerlyn is a free agent. We cannot afford to sign him, and he will get offers. Gamble probably getting cut too. We are fortunate to have taken Thomas off Dallas' hands. They needed immediate help and he was a project. I agree that Thomas could be solid #2 CB, but we need another. Dockery was not bad--maybe he can play nickel.

Norman was good, just needs some more work and confidence.

Thomas is better than Norman. At least right now. And Rivera and the Def coaching staff thought so too. That's why they benched Norman. Now he will get better hopefully. But it's wrong to leapfrog him over Thomas when Thomas outplayed him on the field. Norman was a 5th rd draft pick not a 2nd, so draft status give him much of an edge here.

I'd rather not see more of Norman in a starting role anytime soon, but we can get by with any average DBs, so long as we continue to add talent to our D-line. Norman was really bad on certain plays last season, but he plays with a lot of passion and confidence. Talking trash, screwing up, and then talking more trash. He has a lot to learn. I really don't care that much about the CB position because it's clear that the key is a dominant pass rush. Use young and hungry CBs, and when they ask for money, dump them and bring in a new crop. Spend the money and high draft picks on the D-line.

I just remember seeing Cap'n getting mushed to the ground a couple of times when he was n press coverage. It's true he has some interceptions but we do need a solid and stronger nickel.

He's one of the best nickel corners according to pff, maybe you were watching him when he wasn't in the nickel? Because I remember he was CB2 before Norman got pulled.

Capt is a top 3 nickel corner in this league, there is no arguing that, none. However, if he wants to be a starter or wants to get paid starter money for playing the nickel position he's going to have to take a hike.

Well, I know he was a liability as a full time #2 the year before. Quarterbacks had a 100 passer rating over him and a 76 completion average which was the worst in the league. Being a nb in the league means you are the next man up and that's not gonna work.

nd yes he was playing #2, I think it situational though, but can't remember.
