I hope so. I just don't understand the love for this guy. As a Panther I hope he turns into an All Pro but there has never been any of evidence to suggest he can play in the NFL. He is a poo talker and people love him for it. He gets a pass for the coaches telling him to give a cushion despite the coaches saying they benched him for doing so on his own.

even if he did give a cushion when he shouldn't have, that doesn't mean that they weren't telling him to do it too much anyway.

and i don't know that i can blame him. he was playing it safe in giving a cushion, which is why they probably told him to do it when they did.

i think the talent is there, he just has to have the game slow down for him a bit. i think it does significantly this year.

and the reason for the love for the guy has to do with his attitude. he just has to get his comfort level in the defense and with the job to match his fire. that should happen with time.

like i've said about the WRs, tho, doesn't mean we should sit around and wait. if we see an opportunity to upgrade there, we absolutely should. no reason to wait and see if someone turns out to be as good as we hope without making an effort to ensure we have the best possible players at the position.

Why cant we go Marcus Trufant over Florence? Trufant is a better player and can instantly come play our Nickle position. I forgot Florence was a former Charger

cheap veteran corner. Still say we draft one at 14.

Watching those gifs, although only a few moments of a long career, tells me that Florence is wiling to do whatever it takes to give his defense an edge. If he can teach Norman that alone, his signing will be worth every cent.

Wow. Hurney is gone and we still love bargain bin shopping. I actually would've been excited by this when we discussed him as a potential option a few years ago prior to bogging ourselves down monetarily with our own players. Now, meh... At best, he's a Marlon McCree type of player for us this year.

Me too. People counting him out like he's crap. Hes a damn rookie with absolutely ZERO safety help behind him. I'd play off the ball too I aint gunna get burnt.

florence was with the chargers for one year when rivera was there...his first....when he was a lowly LB coach.

kind of overplaying that connection there.

i doubt picking him up and signing him to a one year deal keeps us from picking up a CB later.

Yep...he is a body and voice. I seriously doubt he was signed with the intention of being part of a solution on the field
