TheScore- Washington Redskins star cornerback Josh Norman has an unusual analogy for his rollercoaster 2016 season.
"It's the wildest thing," Norman told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, according to Conor Orr of NFL.com. "It's like being on Noah's Ark. Every animal there is on Earth, and two by two they come. Either they like me or they don't. And I've encountered them all."
If there is anything I have learned from rooting for a team that employs Brandin Cooks it's that there is no shortage of appropriate religous analogies to be made in reference to the comeuppance and perseverance of athletes. That's why you really have to question Josh Norman's use of the only one that involves literally every living species other than humans to describe his interactions with humans. I respect him having a go-to Bible passage on the tip of his tongue, but maybe he should have done a better job studying it's message before he tried to convey it to a reporter. I mean, between this and the "beastiality" comment I'm starting to think that Norman's competition doesn't get fed up with him because he never stops talking, but because he never starts making any sense. After this little sanfu it's not outside the realm of possibility that he doesn't get in the head of his opposition by questioning their toughness, but by confusing them with lines of thinking that are reminiscent of the old man standing on the corner pointing his walking stick up at the sky and yelling thoughts about Jesus that are so disjointed that they'd make Mark Jackson proud.
We really need a follow-up interview to see if Josh Norman just threw "Noah's Ark" out there on a whim and massively failed to work backwards or if he still genuinely believes his comparison was rooted in logic. The answer should tell me all I need to know about him, but for now I'll just assume he needs a little life lesson from 'Anonymous'...
