Thanks to Cornerback Josh Norman the Dallas Cowboys 31-21 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday was a little extra sweet for Quarterback Dak Prescott. Prescott’s goal of course entering this Week 2 matchup was to seal the win for the Cowboys, but doing that and being able to make Norman eat his words had to make the moment a little extra special for him.
You may have forgotten, but Josh Norman pretty much said he wasn’t all that impressed with Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys performance in the season opener against the New York Giants. Prescott of course had a career day completing 25 and 32 passes 405 yards and four touchdowns, but to that Norman replied “anybody can do that”.
Josh Norman has since said those comments about Prescott were misconstrued and taken out of context, but that could just be him crawfishing and trying to save face after the Cowboys QB roasted him on more than one occasion Sunday afternoon.
Almost fittingly, some of Prescott’s best plays against the Redskins were to Josh Norman’s side of the field. The first was the 51 yard bomb to WR Devin Smith that resulted in a touchdown. And then Dak was able to get a little physical with a stiff arm to No. 24’s face on his long run. It could have even been a little worse for Norman if Michael Gallup could’ve corralled the deep pass down the sideline from his QB. Anyway you slice it though the Redskins mouthy CB got roasted.
As much as I liked Dak Prescott’s roasting of Josh Norman, it fails in comparison to how he’s getting slammed on social media. It’s downright demoralizing, but comical at the same time.
Here are a few examples:

TOAST! LOL Food humor for the win! @Pseudo_RGIII wasn’t the only one roasting Josh Norman on social media though.

Someone got caught looking in the backfield. That’s gotta be embarrassing. That’s not all though, there’s more…

Had enough yet!? No… How about one more just from the beautiful Jane Slater for fun?

Out of the numerous tweets I went through roasting Josh Norman, Jane Slater’s is probably my favorite. That is exactly the kind of face I made on Prescott’s long run that ended in him stiff arming Norman.
It’s not a very day you get the opportunity to make someone eat their words, but I’m truly happy Dak Prescott was able to make Josh Norman eat his. The social media roasting was just icing on the cake. All in all, Norman probably got what he deserved and made think twice about what he says when he opens his mouth in the future.
