The player that the beefed up front could help the most...

Good argument.

I'm anxious to see how the defense looks as a whole.

I think Keuchly will be scary, scary good with Star in front.

Norman showed some good things last year, the reason he played off so much had a lot to do with confidence in my opinion. Not wanting to get beat deep, i think his issues are fixable and the defensive line will only help.

I think it actually allows us to run the zone blitz scheme they have wanted too do for a while. While we have a dominate front four it will make it that much more confusing adding in blitzes. Also we have a good group of ballhawk CBS that will make turnovers. Will we get burned in the secondary? Sure but we will also cause many turnovers.

I hope that's the lineup we go with. Norman (1) and Florence (2). As good as Thomas and Dockery played late last season, I'm still not comfortable with them as starter. Norman and Florence gives us better size.

rotoworld...



The Charlotte Observer expects Josh Thomas to play behind Josh Norman this season.

Norman struggled as a fifth-round rookie last season, ending up benched in favor of Thomas to close out the year. But he has significantly more upside and has been talked up relentlessly by GM Dave Gettleman. Regardless, the Panthers' secondary is going to be one for fantasy owners to exploit once again. A cornerback quartet of Norman, Drayton Florence, Captain Munnerlyn and Thomas just isn't going to cut it.

I think he's overly confident, he doesn't lack confidence at all. He's arrogant and last year he believed he was better than he actually was. He got benched and hopefully humbled lets see how he bounces back.

I think Norman lost his spot towards the end if I remember correctly

Josh Norman..

Reading the tea leaves... He could be the #1 with Florence across from him at #2. Munny and Moore rotating at Nickel with Thomas and Dockery rotating in as needed. 6 active CBs and the most ideal 2 deep or is it just totally off?

A great front can make a decent CB look great. The pressure could play right into Normans natural skill set, which is finding the ball on his side of the field.

If Norman can level his game and begin to play with both discipline and confidence maybe we will see some of that promise in camps last year on Sunday. Call me an optimist but I still have hope for his prospects and truly believe he should've learned a lot from all of his experiences last year (i.e the embarrassment of being benched after he ran his mouth all year)

Heres hoping we have a legit top corner on the roster next year.

 

Florence will not start.... I will actually be surprised if he makes the final roster.

In what way does that give us better size?

 

Thomas is 5' 11 190 4.5 40

Dockery is 6'1 190 4.44 40

 

 

Norman is 6'0 193 4.5 40

Florence is 6'0 193 4.4 40 (probably closer to 4.6 now)

 

 

If size is your argument you don't have much of one....

 

Add in the fact that Florence is 32 injury prone and has defiantly lost a step.

 

 

Between the two combos you have the same average height....

I think our secondary is still weak but more pressure is not a bad thing. This team needs two good off seasos to be relevant and we have only had one. Adding some ball hawks didn't hurt either.

I would much rather have a monstrous front seven and a weak secondary than the other way around.... 

 

 

example Dashon Goldson he is incredibly overated and people will see that this season now that he isn't playing behind the niners front 7.
