Don’t ask Washington Redskins defensive backs coach Torrian Gray about Josh Norman’s bad start to the season.
Let Gray tell it, the narrative surrounding his star defensive back will change completely when he makes a few big plays.
“It’s all splash,” Gray said, according to Matthew Paras of The Washington Times. “And once he makes those splash plays, then I’m sure some of that chatter will go down.”
Asked specifically about Norman losing a step, Gray says the mistakes are more about something else:
“Not necessarily,” Gray said. “All of it is positioning, technique. A lot of it comes down to that. It’s just being disciplined in the coverage and like I say, some of the big plays are more on the communication or coverage error more so than the speed, to be honest.”
Norman has come under fire ever since his dreadful showing against the New Orleans Saints in which he got benched. Coaches have gone on to say he freelanced a bit, which is obviously a problem.
