Josh Norman on Dancing With the Stars: “It is the Super Bowl”

Washington cornerback Josh Norman played in Super Bowl 50 with the Panthers. Now, he says, he’s in a similar situation.

Norman said that heading into tonight’s Dancing With the Stars semifinal, he feels the same kind of pressure.

It is the Super Bowl,” Norman said, via ESPN. “It’s just a different type of pressure because your heart will be racing, man, with anxiety. You get out there and put it all out there on the dance floor in front of millions of people watching. Then you’ve got a couple of hundred people in the audience that is extremely looking at every moment. You want to make sure every line that you learned in practice with your partner, you do not want to screw it up, no matter what.”

Football fans may not be thrilled about hearing Norman talk about a TV show like the pinnacle of the NFL, but he says he sees it all as competition “ecause, everything in my life I’ve been trying to win something.”

  1. I’m a die-hard Redskins fan since birth, and I have to love the guy on principle. I just wish he didn’t make it so dang hard.

    I’m write there with ya. He never says anything all that bad, but every time he’s quoted there’s at least a little portion that makes me wince or raise an eyebrow or wish he just hadn’t said it.

  3. Nothing compares to the vaunted Super Bowl? Wow.

    About 99.999999999999999999999% of people in America will never compete in the SB. So all those other things we compete for just don’t mean as much?

    Or worse: Take an ultra competitive guy and shame him for being ultra competitive by comparing it to the ‘pinnacle’ of competition. Please get a grip.

  4. unfortunately for skins fans like me, that stupid dancing show is the closest he will probably come to playing in another superbowl.

  5. I was a Redskins fan since 1970, but this year is the end – I loathe every moment this jerk Josh Norman takes the field in Burgundy and Gold; I will do the same for the fraud ancient one, Alex Smith, who brings nothing to this team and won’t last the year behind this vegan snowflake offensive line which cannot pass or run block; I resent this team for leaving the secondary alone which is league awful in performance.

    I hope this team loses all its games and the awful coaching staff gets fired and that pathetic allen brat gets canned.

    I’m so waiting to root against this team – and there are manifold numbers of idiot Redskins fans who continue to take this garbage and to root for it each year – I’ll be all over them.

    What an ill-informed comment. Their secondary is actually pretty good, their defensive line was clearly their biggest weakness, and they invested a lot there by drafting Da’Ron Payne and Tim Settle. They also drafted a safety and a corner.

    The Alex Smith deal was also a huge boon for the team. Did you really want to see Colt McCoy starting again?

    And say what you will about Allen and the front office–but the coaching staff is pretty strong, with guys like Gruden, Callahan, and Tomsula. If THIS is the offseason that ruined your “fandom,” I don’t know what you’ve been watching for the past 2 decades.

  7. “If I’m not mistaken, he was on the losing team in that Super Bowl”

    He’ll be on the losing team on DWTS too. He’s simply not the best dancer competing.

    He meant it is the closest he’ll ever get to the Super Bowl.

    I can’t blame him. He plays for the for skins. He knows not what a super bowl is.

    And LOST.

    Keep up.

  10. Mr Wright, way to move the goalposts on your babble after the facts got in the way.
