Smitty backhands Norman on instagram.....

116 posts in this topic

Ok, well looking at the wpa, out of all of the number 1 and 2 corners Norman (wpa .52), ranked higher than Thomas (wpa .51 ranked 74) and Gamble (wpa .05 ranked 155), at 72 out of all the dbs in the league, Captain at his best position was ranked 13th with a wpa 1.29.

Now how's that for your stats? You make opinions and quotes based on your limited knowledge which is very slim.

So that puts Norman in the upper half of number 2's in the league, like i said.

If your stat was reflective of his play....he wouldn't of been benched. You are throwing reasoning and common sense out the window.

You don't bench one of the best #2 CBs who happens to be a rookie to see what else you got.....come on now....

Why don't you go back and watch some games as team systematically picked him apart on slants over and over and over.

Whatever FPT means Norman ranked higher than all of the corners as well with a 102.25 versus Thomas who had 61 vs Captain who had 91.25 and Gamble who had 20.25. So until you can come up with stats, your opinion is just that with no basis of facts CRA. Now you have been called out, lol. :sword:

lol....do you even know what that stat is?

Fantasy football points

8 yard slant for Chicago...first down. Norman tackle. Norman gets a fantasy point. Repeat until Chicago wins...Norman's point total goes up.

There is a reason he had so many tackles...

Coach kept playing the same coverage over and over again in Chicago.. Not Normans fault

They did pick on Norman a lot this year but people also picked on Patrick Peterson his rookie year as well as Moris Claiborne. Rooke CB's struggle all the time

Okay, so fpt is fantasy points but if you looked past the wpa that I mentioned, Norman still had the best averages over all of the 1's and 2's on the roster. So if you can point to one game to prove your point, as one stated about Claiborne, also think about what happened to Peterson and an that rookie in New York. Case in point, you don't know the stats so until you can come up with your own, then there is nothing else to be said if you can't come up with stats to show that Norman was in the bottom half considering the amount of targets he faced.

And Norman wasn't playing it correct as was addressed by Rivera ...and it is why teams were picking on him and not Thomas.

I feel like he shouldn't have started the season at 2 CB because of the huge transition from DII School to the NFL. Give him time he has potential

I have to explain to you what your bogus fantasy football stat is yet I am making up stats?

You don't need to look at stats....you just need to watch Norman play from week 3 until he was benched. Opponents figured out he simply have them freebie yards....and played pitch and catch with him racking up tackles. Too big of a liability so he was benched. The other Josh was flawed but at least tried to make opponents earn it.

Rivera benched him despite having nothing but scrubs behind him. That trumps any stat you are scrambling to find.

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'm not sure if you're serious.......Norman is the guy who basically lost us the Bears game, hmmm who's side did Cutler kept throwing too? Norman's.

Thomas was actually aggressive and competed for the ball, by your logic Beason was started at the MLB position because he was the best option.....when that wasn't the case at ALL.
