Josh Norman Shoots Back at Broncos WR Sanders for Remark About Media

Josh Norman fired back at Emmanuel Sanders on Thursday over the Denver Broncos wide receiver’s suggestion Wednesday that the Carolina Panthers cornerback had “talked himself into the media,” Eric Prisbell of USA Today report.

“Wow. I think you have to be pretty darn good at what you do to talk your way into the spotlight,” Norman said in the final media availability before Super Bowl 50. “If you are not good you are not recognized as one of the best, and I guess people don’t want to know about that person. So I don’t know where he gets that from.

“I haven’t been hearing much about him, so obviously he may want to go back and practice some more.”

Norman later added that he was not surprised or put off by the comments, saying that they’re to be expected from a wide receiver.

“That’s wide receivers for you,” Norman said. “If they don’t think they’re the best, they’re not doing their job.”

Sanders claimed that his statement was taken out of context and was an attempt to change the focus of questions from the media.

“No, he’s not overrated to me,” Sanders said on Thursday morning. “I never said he was overrated. That story has blown up. I pretty much (said) that I’ve been here for four days and I’ve answered more questions about Josh Norman. Robert McClain is on the opposite side. Luke Kuechly is in the middle. They have a defense. They have 10 other guys out there. Is that fair to keep asking questions about one guy as if me and him are the only ones out there playing? Walk up and ask me questions about the defense in general because they have a great defense.

“I don’t want to talk about just one guy. That’s the reason why I said it. I’m kind of tired of talking about just one guy when there are 11 guys out there on the field. So don’t walk up and ask me questions about one guy. Ask me questions about their defense.”
