Amari Cooper: I don’t know what Josh Norman is talking about

Washington cornerback Josh Norman got the best of Oakland receiver Amari Cooper on Sunday night, and afterward Norman said he was motivated by trash talk Cooper directed his way before the game.

Cooper says he has no idea what Norman is talking about.

Asked about Norman’s claims that Cooper and teammate Michael Crabtree had been running their mouths before Washington’s dominant Sunday night victory, Cooper said he never talked trash to Norman and doesn’t believe in trash talking.

I don’t know where he gets that from. As long as I’ve been here, I’ve never bragged before or after a game,” Cooper said, via Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

It may simply be a matter of Norman getting himself motivated by convincing himself that Cooper had been talking trash, even if Cooper hadn’t really said anything.

  1. For crying out loud Josh, you’re supposed to be a PROFESSIONAL, but each week you spend 60mins running the field and 60hrs running your mouth. This isn’t Mean Girls, this is Gridiron.

    But seeing as you’re stuck in the mind of a 12yr old, let me help: Cooper isn’t much of a talker so what did he say? Just because you constantly run your mouth (at every opportunity) and do so at a guy before a game and he finally says back “oh yeah? we’ll soon see in the game” or just laughs or shakes his head or says F-off does not mean he’s trash talking with you. Quite the opposite really.

  2. Anybody who knows anything about Amari Cooper knows he doesn’t say squat to anybody, he doesn’t even celebrate TD’s.

    It’s Ok, Amari. Even Josh Norman doesn’t know what Josh Norman is talking about.

  3. Don’t Matter anyways X Rhodes Closed is the best DB in the league he would shut down coop/crabtree at the same time. lol

  4. I wish he would keep his mouth shut sometimes. He does seem to be a good teammate and when he talks to the media he seems like a likable person. I’m glad he’s a Redskin. HTTR

    You are the same guy that said Cordarrelle Patterson is one of the best WRs of all time just 2 years ago…Now he’s with Raiders. You still say he’s the best?
    Raiders had one bad game…..They would beat Washington 100 times if they played them 100 more times. IT WAS A FLUKE. Anyone with a brain knows this

  6. Everybody knows Norman is narcissistic. He wants it all about him. Cooper is a very shy guy and doesn’t trash talk. Norman is like Sherman, and Talib, they are all really good CB’s but they believe the world revolves around them. I choose to watch how they play, not what they say.

  7. Dude needs to lay on a couch and talk to a shrink. Did you catch his interview with Rodney Harrison? More then one screw loose with that one. His mind is like a bag of cats

  8. Cooper seems to be one of the most polite young men you’ll ever see. A DB on his NFL top 100 piece said it was aggravating because you talk trash to him and he doesn’t respond.It looks as if he is required to celebrate with his team mates after scoring.

    I don’t think Cooper said a word.

    I like Cooper. No trash talk before or after a game. Reminds me of AJ Green. Both great guys, not just great NFL players
    ———-
    Did you just say AJ Green is not a great NFL player? He’s easily a top 3 WR, maybe even 1/2, if he was on a better team with a better QB he’d light it up, and he still puts up Julio Jones like stats over his career playing with Dalton.

    No. He didn’t say that.

    Lol at you calling that Monday night beat down a fluke.

    Raiders
    0-11 on 3rd downs
    128 total yards. 96 passing, 32 rushing
    And the only reason the Raiders were able to score 10 points was due to gift wrapped turnovers by the Skins. But hey if it makes you feel better keep telling yourself it was a fluke.

    Josh Norman and Brandon Marshall(WR) act identical !!!…

    ————–

    Don’t link Brandon Marshall in with him. Marshall actually has worked hard to become a much different person and better himself. Used to bag on the guy, but now I respect him.

  13. Maybe Norman was listening to Raders’ fans. Tell me again, why are these people crowing about a team that has not won a playoff game in over a decade?

  14. Please allow me to explain.
    Josh Norman is a pro bowl CB. As the game progressed, he noticed how the Raider OL was not the same Raider OL he saw on film. At first, he thought that they were off to a slow start. But then, he realized what was happening.
    “OMFG! Those guys are throwing the game! They’re not pass blocking. They’re not getting to the second level on run blocks. They look totally committed to defeating racial inequality in America. I think those sons of bitches are deliberately throwing the game!”
    Then, it started to get soooooo obvious that it was embarrassing. Even to Josh. Someone like Josh knows when a team is playing hard and when they are engaging in “brother in law” blocking. A pro would notice it immediately.
    By going on the record to say that 89 and 15 were trash talking, he’s trying to lend some credibility to the outcome of the game.
    He knows what happened. The Broncos have watched the film. By now, they also know what happened. Khalil Mack and especially Derek Carr know what happened. The locker room is now divided. The raiders are finished.
    Some how, the raider OL sat in the film room and watched what they diid too. It is possible that they are even PROUD of themselves.
    Personally, i think they should be banished from the league. Do you think Billichick would let them get away with it?
    Any defensive coordinator in the league will see what these ass clowns did as soon as they watch that game film.
    A federal judge should rule on whether they should ever play in the league again.
