Smitty backhands Norman on instagram.....

116 posts in this topic

2012 stats:

Captain:

Completion: 65.5 %

Avg yards per catch: 9.4

Nfl Qb rating : 76.6

Norman:

Completion: 67.5

Avg yds: 12.4

Rating: 102.1

Not sure how Norman can be considered a upgrade based on this.

I lost that site, so where did you find that info. Also, where was Thomas ranked in that equation?

So Norman seems to be a better corner than Thomas last season?

Also, there was a site that gave that info out for free, i lost the information and bookmarks for it when I resynced my chrome. I will stumble across it at some point.

Solely based of those stats maybe, but not by any considerable amount. Though I never contradicted that.

My argument was toward your statement about Norman vs Captain. And the stats are in my favor.

heh you're new around these parts. CRA has an obvious and well-documented hatred toward Smitty. Good ideas and rational opinions on most other subjects, but when it comes to Smitty he's about as critical as they come.

Goodsen he hates... Steve Smith he is slightly critical at times but nothing bad :)

COME AT ME BRO!

In all seriousness though. I think smitty love poking fun at Norman from that little confrontation they had last year in mini camp and how Norman loves to talk trash.

Yea I think its all in fun trash talking

When Norman was benched our secondary got a whole lot more solid and cohesive. Were you not watching games or was it Madden skewing your love for Him bc Norman and Brandon Hogan are killing it for me!

Hogan's performance was never really quantifiable due to injury.

I hardly think that the book has been written on Josh Norman---not from what I saw. He is going to have to have the time to be coached up and hone his coverage skills. I do believe he has some talent, it's just that the speed of the game was too big of a jump for him to be a legitimate starter from day one. I don't know if it's so much his lack of speed that got him into trouble as much as it was his judgment of spacing and angles. Just my thought though. We will see.

Personally, I am hoping that we give the Honey Badger a good look.

You do know the only reason why Rivera benched him was to see what he had in Dockery right?

Pretty ridiculous statement, with no evidence...AT ALL. When Norman got benched....he was benched and only saw the field on special teams. If he did only bench Norman to look at Dockery he fuging found what he was looking for, because he outplayed Norman big time.

I guess you are reading what you want to read, Norman was the best corner we had, maybe he wasn't what Rivera wanted but he was an upgrade over Captain. Is Thomas a better corner? I don't know at this point, but it's strange that Rivera benched him when the season was over and not when we still had a chance to make a run.

So in Rivera's mind, Norman gave the team the best chance to win.

I honestly think that you do not watch the games or are somewhat unsure what is supposed to happen during them. When we are on defense we are supposed to keep the other team from catching the ball for a first down, a first down is when the offense gains ten or more yards. They are bad.

Ok pal, but if you look at qbr, Norman wasn't stellar but had more success than Thomas. I don't know if you were watching, but I rewatched the first Saints game and Brees didn't really throw to side much because the way Norman played the ball. So say want you like, numbers don't like but drunken brew drinking goggles do.
