Josh Norman?

Recommended Posts

It's the David Gettis factor. You see flashes of what he can do, he has the measurable, and his potential is through the roof. But regardless of all that, he's raw. Most raw talents don't make it big time.

 

It has nothing to do with Gettis.  Gettis showed what he could do.  He played well.  Then he got hurt.  A year isn't a "flash".  It's not only about his measurables or potential.  It's about what he did when he played.  Looks like Gettis is the trendy new Hardy from last year and Gamble from the year before that.  The guy that a group likes to hate on and think needs to be replaced/cut WAY prematurely. Hopefully the trend continues and Gettis proves all the haters wrong.  I'm not even a big Gettis fan, never was.  I like him well enough, but I'm also not naive enough to think that just cuz Rivera wouldn't play him last year that means he's not ready to play.

Another issue read concerning Josh was he was improvising.  Doing things outside of his responsibility.

 

That said they guy is 25 and from a smaller school so discipline was probably not as required as talent. 

 

Let him grow and I think we'll see dividends this season.

Gettis is one of my favorite players on the team. I even named my Fallout New Vegas character after him. I would slate him as the #2 receiver in a heartbeat if I was running this team, with LaFell at the three. I was just trying to tell the guy why people like Norman. The potential is there, and we can see it, but it may never get to be realized to it's fullest because of coaches, time, schemes, etc.

Great potential he has. But there was a reason he was a 5th round pick. He doesn't have the best speed and gets beat too often.

Thank you, Yoda.

He actually made an informative contribution, which nobody has ever been able to say about you here.

Talk to me on gameday. I'm done buying into this camp hype.

 

I mean its not like the OP specifically asked how they looked in camp or anything.

It's not that, but every year people and things get talked up to only not pan out during the season. the more realistic trend is when things go bad, and they stay bad.

If Norman is only good enough for a  backup position this year, that mean at least 2 or 3 guys are playing better..  That can mean nothing but  good things. If he becomes a starter than that means he will be playing very well. Again a good thing. I am looking forward to seeing this team in the preseason.  Especially the depth  and bubble players.

Feldman9000 is the same mouth breather who endlessly insisted that Brandon Beane (anyone remember him?) would be hired as GM here. Yet he pops into threads and berates others as if he's some guru talent evaluator.

It would be funny if it weren't so sad.
