Sounds like he's reacted to the benching the way you'd want him to.

While I don't think a move to safety makes sense, I disagree that he's already a lost cause. He has some skill, and potentially can be coached up to a solid player.

We'll see.

well said.

I'm not writing him off. he's smart and has a solid work ethic and great drive. he'll be better next year.

His attitude is everything you would want post-benching. I actually have high hopes for this guy. I love his attitude and tackling skills. If he can learn the rest of the position, which i think after this benching he will be more open to it. He made some real splash plays. If he can put it all together he could be a gem.

I love how he mentions the four game winning streak as if his play in prior games had nothing to do with us losing games. Like it was a total coincidence that he happened to miss those last four games.

Which brings us to my own theory on Norman. He was great in run support this year. Until he het Forte. Both him and Forte got up slow, and Norman was never the same. He would wiff on tackles. Played softer in coverage. He was a much less physical player after that hit.

By the way, Forte never hit 100 yards again. That hit affected them both.

No way. At no time has Zod ever had anything good to say about Norman.
Zod hates Norman and fully agreed with everything in the OP.



If you're still having trouble then hint: you are not the only one.

I agree, I think he'll know how to better apply himself.

He's a rookie from a small school, and he's slow as fug. Damn, he's slow.


Idk why but it always seems like we draft slow and or non athletic players in the later rounds look at armanti everette brown Dwayne jarret even Joe Adams looks very slow

Then examine the facts, something nobody has done. Norman is a fifth round draft pick. Why was he a fifth round CB? Did he not run a 4.6 40 yard dash? If so, then no wonder he was not in press coverage--he cannot recover. Could he be a one-trick pony? Could it be that he would have been burned WORSE if he stepped up?

Rivera's comments after the Bears game suggested that Norman was limited, and he knew how to take the slant away, but did not.

If you are 25 years old and an NFL CB, I doubt your 40 time improves much as you age. So, if you think Norman can improve, then you give him the benefit of the doubt because he was thrown to the wolves for a fifth rounder. However, if he lacks the God-given ability to play the position, you could reasonably suggest a move to safety.

The opinion was not stupid if you bother to find out the reason for it first. I see both sides.

Even if someone is wrong-flat out wrong-like stating that Silatolu played RG-you do not have to be a prick when you correct that person. Nobody on this board is an expert. In fact, spending hours on a board where you seek cyber approval from strangers with code names, you probably have deeper issues.

Honestly Josh Thomas and Dockery(not to mention Captain) both outplayed Norman. To me he is behind both of them until he proves otherwise. I don't care if he was a draft pick and they weren't. Performance is all that should matter. With Rivera's ass on the line that is all he better care about. Too early to tell if Norman can play CB or Safety or neither.
