If they were doing their jobs properly both of them would have been tossed. I don't blame ODB fom defending himself though. Norman led the game off by body slamming him and nothing was done.



Agreed, but also IMO both coaches should have had those guys on the bench when it hit 2 levels beyond chippy. That's the way it would have gone in the old days, give them a chance to get their head straight and realize they are hurting their teams if they don't get self control. I guess Rivera could have been thinking both gone would be a net positive for the Panthers but who knows.

Beckham's stat line was 6/76/1, but 40 yds came on 1 catch & run against I believe an LB, so that's 5/35/1 with the TD coming in the final 2 min. Not too shabby. Beckham got him pretty good on the TD catch, though.


Early in the game Beckham roasted him, if I am remembering right he had 2-3 steps on him and a walk into the end zone but flat dropped it. Later in the game he had a step+ but Eli missed him badly. The pass rush probably played a part in the Eli miss too.

He locked up ODB?




Watching on a TV screen, I'll certainly admit you just can't get a full appreciation for all that's happening, but I have become pretty adept at keeping my eye on the particular match ups I'm interested in seeing to the extent the camera will allow. I'm usually not just following the ball anyway.


Here is a pretty good article on Norman from Football Outsiders and they saw it the same way I did.


The article goes pretty in depth on Norman's season, usage in Carolina, value to the Pathers etc, and is well worth a read. Specifically on the Beckham - Norman matchup they charted Beckham beating Norman ".......9 out of 10 times in direct coverage. It was one of, if not the most lopsided matchup since this analysis method was created."

  Good for the Skins if they can afford it and not put their cap in a bind. He's a very good player but I don't think he is shutdown against top #1s.


In the matchup with the Giants & Beckham the Panthers clearly won the war as they had Odell playing on tilt.......... but I watched that game and to my eyes Jr flat smoked him on routes that were covered by Norman. I also remember being concerned about Julio on most of my FF teams last year playing the Panthers twice near the end of the year, and that didn't end up being a problem either.

So you are saying that you laugh at all of my moves in Dyno? :(


I don't get it.................I guess when MFL is back up I'll take a look and maybe put it together. Did you trade for a bunch of 2017 picks?
