Redskins cornerback Josh Norman is never at a loss for words and such was the case Sunday after his team lost 19-10 to the Giants, Lorenzo Reyes of USA Today reports.
A win almost certainly would have put the Washington Redskins in the NFL postseason – provided that Sunday night’s matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions wouldn’t end in a tie. But Washington played one of its worst games of the season when it mattered most and lost 19-10 to the New York Giants. The defeat eliminated the franchise from playoff contention.
How did the team let this opportunity slip away?
“Pssh, that’s the question I’ve been asking myself over there,” Norman told reporters after the game. “I don’t know. We’ve got to bounce back and see tomorrow, sit down with the coaches and evaluate ourselves. Because we had opportunities to be special, damn it, man.”
Norman continued: “That right there was disgusting. It was despicable. … We’ve got to be better. We’ve got to give (fans) something to cheer for. That right there was not football.”
