If we benched a DB every time they were beaten for a TD we'd run out of DB's pretty fast.

Munnerlyn would not see the field for most NFL teams. He is by far the weakest link on our team

His issue is he is a nickel and we ask him to be more....

As a nickel....he is probably top half of the league

Norman gives his man a 10 yard cushion every time I just don't understand it. When the ball is in the air and Norman is around it he will make a play. The problem is that he's often not around it when he should be.

Rodeo,

 

 

Yes, actually, it's why he got benched last year. I'll see if I can find it.

 

 

 

you find those quotes / links?!?

And yet, he didn't allow a touchdown for 3.5 quarters.

I haven't allowed a TD in 30 years, should I be the starting Corner Back?

Read this on derp.  It won't let me link to the preview.

 

The Panthers have reportedly decided to bring Josh Norman in to start alongside Josh Thomas (per Joe Person) this week, while it is still undecided whether Quintin Mikell will start again or if Mike Mitchell will start after being out with an injury last week.

 

 

Haven't seen any confirmations though. And it is Person reporting.

 

 

 

 

 

"derp", cute. Now I know why.

You're not an UDFA professional football player, now are you? Talk crap all you want but if you were the starting corner for The Panthers you'd be yanked and benched so fast you would be used as a CERN experiment for Anti-Matter.

Rodeo,

No, I should have known better than to think Rivera would openly give his reason, he never does. But I found dozens of articles explaining why he was benched.

 

Marshall was given an 8-yard cushion by Josh Norman and ran his route at seven yards. He only needed six yards for the first down. Easy math. Munnerlyn commented that Norman couldn't play the double slants, and Cutler saw that quickly.

Norman still gives Marshall an 8-yard cushion and executes his slant at the 5-yard mark. Norman can't get to the play quick enough to break it up.

 

He gave receivers too much cushion, and often found himself giving up a bit too much seperation. Norman would eventually be benched, but returned for some limited action.

 

As for Norman, I think his propensity to give up too big of a cushion at the line of scrimmage just got exasperating.

In summation, like I said before, I want to give Norman another shot to start. But not in a game against an opponent that primarily throws short passes, considering Norman flat out cost us a win last year because he can't cover the short pass.

Josh Thomas was particularly awesome on the punt where he let the ball hit him.

In watching Norman its easy to see that it's his huge cushion that is his problem, but why aren't the coaches yelling at him in a play by play basis to get up closer to the LOS. If you are the DB coach or DC and you see him 8 yards back, tell him if he does it again he is benched. Eventually you'd think he'd learn. Maybe not though, because he was benched for it last year and I saw him doing it on every snap he was in on last Sunday.
