Josh Norman's life this week

44 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

With everyone coming down on Rivera on this board, I haven't heard the first inkling on what has happened with Norman this week. At the very least I would think that Steve Smith has made his life a living hell. On the radio, numerous post game interviews eluded to his teammates being nothing less than pissed with him for single-handedly costing at least half of the final drive for Buffalo.

Additionally, it doesn't even sound like he has owned up to his arrogance. I can't imagine any scenario where he isn't at least getting the banishment treatment from his peers.

Has there been ANY word on this?

He should be in Rivera's doghouse but, he has to play because of the secondary woes.

I heard a couple Chinamen burst into Brad Nortman's house and peed on his rug. Mistaken identity?

I heard Hardy gave him a nuclear wedgie in front of the entire team.

Haven't heard anything.

But it is kind of funny how half this site is a bunch of wannabe arm chair coaches and said Rivera is retarded for not starting Norman. They won't eat their crow though, they'll just continue to think they know more than even the worst of NFL coaches.

One player NEVER "single handedly" loses a game.

 

Football is the ultimate team sport. That line of thinking suchs an astounding level of ignorance.

 

What about the offenses poor performance? What about 0 sacks, what about Byron Bell, what about the DPI that put them in the red zone.

 

Norman has his faults and owns this loss, but no more than anyone else on the team...

 

While I agree with this, this was about as close as you can get to one player losing the game for you.

Norman blew the game winning TD, but don't forget that the refs cheated Keuchly on the previous play. Deangelo blew the game against seattle. Munnerlyn gets destroyed on the regular. Hardy and Johnson were a let down against the Bills. Rivera's dumbass didn't call a timeout when it was obvious Norman was confused.

 

It's not all on the one CB on the roster who actually has the talent to be good.

Rivera blew this game when he decided to kick a field goal on 4th + 1.  And then played prevent defense so that the Bills drove the ball 80-yards with a rookie QB, and no timeouts.

I didn't say he cost the game all by himself. Re-read the OP

How much time did Rivera have to recognize that Norman WOULDN'T pick up the switch for that last play? If the answer is more than zero time, you are dead wrong

Absolutely.  When the team loses, it makes us feel better to have a scape goat.  Beason sucked.  Cam was way off when WRs were open, Bell was horrible,  Godfrey was late helping over the top again, etc etc etc.

Everyone's job for that final drive was two simple things: keep the play in front of you, and keep everyone in the field of play. If Norman does this once out of his three failures, we are talking about last weeks close call instead of our collapse.

Josh Norman has not owned up to his mistake.

 

Byron Bell thinks he played great.

 

Charles Johnson post on twitter that they are gonna fuck shit up in Buffalo before the game and then disappears. Goes home and puts on a falcon hat before going out for dinner.

 

Hardy says he's going to get 50 sacks this year and dubs the d-line monsters inc.--They return from Buffalo looking more like Monster stinc.

 

Cam who was previously tortured by losses seems to take them in stride now and shrugs them off thinking we'll get the next one.

 

Armanti was named the training camp MVP by Rivera and proceeds to see his 3 snaps a game.

 

Yep, this is def. Rivera's team.

I don't know about Norman's life, but this has to be Gettleman's (JR as the warden)

I love the stuff people write around here without any facts.  We don't know if Norman owned up to his mistake but it was certainly pointed out by the coaches in the meetings this week by the coaches.  And if Steve Smith is giving Norman hell over a mistake last week when the focus should be on the Giants, then I would question the leadership qualities of Smith.

If you are questioning how Smith does leadership, look at how he handled armond smith and frank Alexander on the sidelines for game day

I figured it out in the 8 seconds that Norman had his arms out to the side, looking at the sideline and at Moore.

No, that was all talk. Kind of like his play so far.

The switch takes place when the play develops. Should have been a no brainer. Norman decided to play man instead of make the switch. Any reasonable assumption goes forward with Norman doing what he is plainly told. Everyone understood the play at the time it was happening.

It's one thing to simply not have the ability to match up well.  It is something else entirely to not do what you are coached to do... several times on a single drive
