Josh Norman calls out Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree after Redskins big win
Josh Norman is at it once again. Shortly after the Redskins beat the Oakland Raiders 27-10, Norman called out the Raiders’ top receivers who failed to show up.
Josh Norman is no stranger to trash talk. The Redskins cornerback has only been with the team for just over a season, but he has already called out plenty of his opponents. Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham Jr. have topped the list, but week in and week out, it seems like Norman is jawing about one of his opponents.
On Sunday night after the team’s win over the Oakland Raiders, Norman was at it once again. This time, his targets were Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper. The Raiders receivers were virtually non existent during the contest, as they combined for 13 yards on two catches.
This made them an easy target for Norman’s postgame comments. And target them he did. Per ESPN’s John Keim, here is what Norman said after the contest about his opponents.

"What was personal, other than them getting their tails whupped? I mean, first and foremost, you don’t come up in here and say what you’re going to put up on somebody. Two hundred yards? [Crabtree] didn’t catch two balls. He only caught one, huh? So please, whatever you do, do not run your mouth if you’re a wide receiver and expect to show up on Sundays, because I’m telling you, we are here and we are waiting.Don’t come out here and tell me what you’re going to do. Show me. You’re going to have to run through me to get that."
Norman would specifically mention Cooper as well during his rant.
Norman is absolutely justified in this trash talk. If the Raiders receivers were in fact running their mouths like Norman said they are, then there is no reason for Norman to keep his mouth shut after the game. The Raiders receivers were embarrassed and they didn’t look effective during the game at all.

Norman and his fellow defensive backs should be proud of the work they did on Sunday night. They shut down one of the best offenses in the NFL and proved that they might be contenders after all. With their renewed defensive prowess, the team will be in good shape moving forward.
