Thomas will remain as starting Corner

Norman not starting is a joke. 

 

Send Capt's ass to NB

 

I would give this triple pie if I could.  Capt got burnt on so many 3rd downs.  I really do not understand why we re-signed him.  The starting CB on a team that leads the league in completion percentage should not get re-signed once he is a free agent.

despite what the overall numbers say, munnerlyn was definitely the worst corner on the field sunday.

 

thomas got burned for a td, but outside of that he only allowed 2 other catches for 17 total yards. the 43 yard td catch is what escalated wilson's qb rating against him.

Norman must totally suck at practice or tells Rivera to suck one every time he is given coaching advice.

Seemed like such a nice kid in all of this year's interviews. 

 

Baffles the mind, don't it?

This is exactly what I was thinking. Every time Munnerlyn was on the field, the QB threw his way. Just about every long completion was Munnerlyn's man. Thomas sucked too, but I think Munnerlyn was worse. I want to see Moore or White starting beside Norman.

norman played 37 snaps sunday (28 in coverage). no one heard about him because he was doing his job. he was only thrown at 2x. he allowed 1 catch for 13 yards (0 yac).

 

i'm of the belief rivera and company were game planning against lynch. if that was the case, thomas and munnerlyn are both better in run support than norman. not saying norman is bad, the other 2 are just better.

Agreed

 

And I don't know if I would do that.... I'd sign Florence back, cut Munnerlyn, and put DJ Moore or Thomas at NB

I want to give Norman a shot to start, but this is not the week. The vast majority of Manuel's passes were short dinks. Tons of screens, throws in the flats, crossing routes, slants. Norman is notorious for refusing to play on his man, and giving a big cushion even when it's not called for by the playcall. I don't know why he does it, maybe he thinks it helps him make a play, but when the opponent's passing offense is based around the short ball, it just doesn't work. For reference watch the Bears game from last year when Cutler picked on our cushions about 8 times in a row on slants and drove down the field.

Rivera playing favorites per usual... and to our detriment.

 

You know, I just poo pooed this notion all along, but now I believe that it may have some validity.

 

But, Rivera is the coach, so his expertise has to count for something.

That was last season. During the preseason game a few weeks ago, Norman helped shut Cutler down.

Refusing to play on his man?!?!? 

 

Do you have a quote or any evidence to suggest the coaches told him to play up and he refused to? 

 

Unless Norman just doesnt know the playbook which I highly doubt the plays and game plan dictate the cushion / press etc. 

 

So any quotes from Rivera saying Norman was playing wrong or out of position? Or Norman saying he messed up the play and didnt play the right coverage? 

 

One play in a game sure. But after that the coaches would be in his ear and ass. So I cant see a sane player that wanted to play CONTINUE to play the wrong coverage.
