Norman not happy with the officials?.

Did Josh Norman just claim that the Super Bowl refs were biased?

Published 1 Comments

The season is officially over and the Denver Broncos are the Super Bowl champions, but for the losing Carolina Panthers, they are facing some big questions.

Can they come back just as good next season? Were they a one season wonder? Is Cam Newton the real deal?

Tough to take

Quarterback Cam Newton showed the pain of losing a Super Bowl when he walked out of his post- match press conference.

There will obviously be a lot of frustration and disappointment surrounding the Panthers right now following a poor offensive display by the team.

Each player is handling it differently and while some may choose to evaluate themselves, cornerback Josh Norman is choosing to evaluate others.

The Panthers were flagged 12 times in the Super Bowl and that along with some other calls has led Norman sharing some interesting opinions.

What are the two teams that Norman is referring to? Is it possible that he is referring to the very different performances displayed by the Broncos offense and their defense?

It seems a lot more likely that Norman was implying that the officials were with the Broncos and against the Panthers.

Whatever your opinion of the Super Bowl and if the officials were supporting any specific team or not, it is hard to argue that the better defense took their team to a title.

Defensive battle,

The Panthers may have had one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL, but that offense certainly didn't travel to San Francisco.

The Panthers seemingly offered nothing against one of the best defensive units ever seen on Sunday night and was a large part of why Denver left with the Vince Lombardi trophy.
