    That's the delima ..I have always said that Kubes seems like a nice guy but hes a horrific coach.. makes it tough to like or dislike him.

    1) Punt return in the Super Bowl, which was a heady play by Norwood, but mainly a mistake by the Panthers. And his lack of top speed allowed him to be tackled from behind by a defensive end.

    2) His 36-yard TD in week 9 vs the Raiders.

    That's all I can remember. Was it worth all his blunders? Anything positive you get from Norwood, you should be able to get from Taylor/Fowler/Latimer.

    Kubiak can't say this is the best group of WRs he's ever had and then have Norwood as his slot receiver.

    Sarcasm, of course.
    Kubiak's response to the question about Norwood:

    “I believe in players,” Kubiak said, according to a quote sheet released by the team. “All players battle their tails off. He made some mistakes. He’s also made a lot of plays for this football team. I believe in people. I keep encouraging them to do their job and battle. It’s a hard game. He doesn’t want to go out there and make a mistake. He wants to go out there and make plays. He’s done that for this team many times over."

    How many times will Kubiak compromise the team by allowing a player to make the same mistakes. It's anyone's guess at this point. It is beyond common sense that he continues putting Norwood on the field. It's not just turnovers on punt returns - he caused a critical turnover in the San Diego game at the end of last season. Did not catch a pass earlier this season that resulted in an INT. Did not get his foot down for a TD in a game.

    Where are all the great plays Kubiak is talking about?

AJ Derby is a former QB, I am sure he can serve as the emergency QB. There is no reason to make Norwood active on game day.

    He was chosen over Raymond because of his role as WR, yet he only had 1 catch for 12 yards in the entire game. Such a key contribution... Why can't we use Jordan Taylor more outside and move Sanders to the slot in 3-WR sets? Or use Taylor's size in the slot as if he were a receiving TE attacking the seam. The Cardinals use Fitzgerald in the slot. How many nickel CBs can fight for the ball against a 6'4 WR?

    Whyyyyyy????????

    I'd like to see him do that but to be honest we are thin with blocking and Norwood just does not have the lightning speed needed to make guys miss. Raymond does. Then there is also the issue of mental ability...ie can a player shake off a mistake. For Norwood he has shown he can't. Like it or not. So the coaches can like the guy, frankly by all accounts I've heard he's a real stand up guy, that doesn't change the facts though. He has had two games where he has dropped very catchabe balls on offense and he has made mistakes in his last 2 or 3 ST PR starts.

    Now II've on a bit...what is with all of this nonsense I am hearing coming out of our coaches mouths. Between our ST coach and our HC this past week I cannot decide which comments I think are worse. I suppose it would still need to be Kubiak's because at least our ST coach did say that Raymond has real potential to be 'the guy'. As other in other posts had stated teams who win or are generally winners NEVER defend players when talking to the media...they simply differ to that player directly and say something to the effect that 'we are constantly evaluating who should start and when.'
