My phone is being stupid and wont let me past but this is per ESPN, those our are starters for this Sunday. So we sign a pro bowler SS just to be a back up. Genius! We have a CB that led the pre season in picks and we bench him. GENIUS!

Calm down. Who the starters are on the defense is pretty meaningless as much as everyone rotates in and out.

Norman will find his way into that starting job fast, don't worry. 

 

Wharton was for rotation and depth

 

Mikell is so old he could break a him

Don't understand putting Norman on the bench unless they think he is just too much of a gambler on a play to play basis. Seattle is a big play/play action team. If Norman tries to jump a few play action routes and they lead to TDs then it puts our offense in a bad situation against a front 7 that LOVES to play downhill. Wilson isnt going to throw picks...he just doesn't do it. Never did it in college, didn't do it last year as a rookie. The best way to limit Seattle is to be solid tacklers and to force them to go 3 and out.

 

If we were playing the Cowboys and you could count on a few errant throws from Romo then I'd say start Norman...but Wilson is too disciplined. Start whoever is most fundamentally sound.

Mikell needs to get in football shape before he can be labeled a starter. You don't just walk on to week 1 and start a full game after missing all TC and preseason work.

Wharton was signed as depth and to start if poo gets ugly.

Norman? He will essentially start in nickel and dime looks

I am critical of Rivera at times, but I do not doubt his morning dumps have more knowledge of defense than everyone in this thread combined.

Zod is right, the "starting lineups" don't really mean all that much...

The only thing that is 100% certain on Sunday is that I will be cracking a beer at 8am in a gravel parking lot whilst firing up the grill and blasting Hall & Oates greatest hits.

Those guys came on late as opposed to being in camp and preseason. They will still play and rotate in so what is the problem?

Remember Mikell was on his couch for 31 other teams as well..gotta get him in playing shape first.

Norman will play as Captian moves to the nickle. Josh Thomas is a more consistant guy (as seen late last season). Norman, being a young guy needs to stay focused and hungry so...this is also a coaching/motivation technique.

Now if they are inactive you make this thread.

The panthers unofficial depth chart was released yesterday. I assume that's what you saw, I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure Rivera hasn't officially named the starters yet.
