What started as a normal feud between Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has devolved hugely.
Throughout the Thanksgiving Day game between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys, Josh Norman and Dez Bryant were busy talking trash. Bryant was also busy beating Norman on most of his routes and he finished the game with a solid five catches for 72 yards on seven targets, including a clutch third-down reception to set up a critical fourth quarter touchdown for Ezekiel Elliott.
That’s nothing compared to what Bryant allegedly said to start that scuffle, though. In the postgame press conference, Norman stated that Bryant told him, “Where I’m from, we unload the clip,” which started their scuffle on the field.
Bryant’s response to that accusation has been swift and it has been quite inflammatory in and of itself.
@J_No24 don't lie on me.. but I will whoop yo ass boy straight up
That’s interesting, because in Norman’s post-game interview, he criticized Bryant for taking things past the game by yapping to Norman with the “unload the clip” comment. We may never know what actually happened, but this rivalry will likely get even uglier before things die down or are patched up.
Bryant and Norman are known for being emotional, outspoken, misunderstood, and excellent players. Let’s hope neither of them makes a mistake that they will regret, because we know how quick some fans and media members are to jump on an error.
